Have you gone to a chemical manufacture’s event with the promise of getting a Green certificate only to be sold on the company’s cleaning products? These certificates are not worth the paper they are written on. You see, may claim to be Green Clean because they have a few Green products in the mix, but only those who actually use Green products and Green practices are truly Green.
There is no other source of true janitorial certification except Green Clean Institute. You already know that other firms are competing for the business, and they can buy Green products too. So, what is the real difference in your company. Green Clean Institute (www.greencleaninstitute.com) is an educational program that offers janitorial services a true training and certification program. It is also a federal trademark for enhanced value.
Janitorial work is no longer a mop and bucket business. It is more than taking out the trash or buffing floors. The world has changed, and more is expected of janitorial services than ever before. Frankly, you need to graduate from a “Task Oriented” job that is a mere job to be done, and become a “Service Oriented” business that does the job wisely. This requires that you take some training and pass a few test, but this can be done in your spare time.
Service oriented means that the person has a general knowledge base in the performance of his or her duties. Cleaning Green should mean that the person doing the job has more than a new line of cleaners and a microfiber cloth for dusting. Knowing how these things work and why they work brings Green Practices to the project as well as Green Products.
Green Clean Institute offers a Green Clean Firm certification at a very affordable price. It is not earned by paying a fee, but requires the person to take six easy-to-understand modules and six exams. In the end, your firm will earn the only federal trademark certification available for janitorial services. This is something that you can include in your bids and quotes.
Imagine winning a bid even though you were not the low bidder. This happens because more and more corporations and government bids require the choice of Green Clean certified firm over other non-Green certified firms. We are seeing more and more firms, schools, and government buildings asking for Green certified janitorial services. This is a market trend that you should not miss.
Green clean certification is an investment that pays off many times over. One good job pays for the cost of the training many times over. The material is useful, and even those who have been in the business for years seem to enjoy the course. Courses are available as a download, so learning can start when you are ready.
Green Clean Institute believes that all janitorial and cleaning services need to have Green Clean Technicians to honestly claim to be a Green Clean Janitorial service. Being a janitor is not enough in this new, Green economy. Being a Green Clean Technician is the first step to an honest Green Clean business.
