In years past, customers thought little about using green floor chemicals to clean high-traffic areas. Now, products that are both effective and environmentally-friendly are able to be used in even the busiest of areas.

Green floor care chemicals, including finishes and strippers, are formulated with lower amounts of volatile organic compounds. This means less toxic fumes for cleaning workers and building occupants to breathe.

Green floor care chemicals can be appreciated in K-12 schools, as public data shows that 20 percent of all students have a breathing disorder, with asthma being the most common ailment. When high VOC chemicals are not being used, the less susceptible it is for an attack in an asthmatic student.

Green finishes are also safer for the environment because they lack heavy metals such as zinc, which is toxic to aquatic life.
