In 2014, readers commented that green cleaning procedures had almost become commonplace, and managers no longer had to out of their way to find "green" products or implement cleaning procedures that have less impact on the environment. According to findings from this 9th Annual Facility Cleaning Decisions Reader Survey, that is still the case.

Green cleaning and the implementation of sustainable initiatives within custodial departments continues to grow as appropriate products and equipment becomes both more readily available and more cost friendly.

Custodial executives in K-12 schools, colleges and universities, as well as healthcare, hospitality, commercial and government facilities commented on the following green and sustainable questions:
How important are these statement sin regards to your in-house department?
How long have you been green cleaning in your facility?
What green and sustainable practices are currently in place at your facility?
How has your facility benefited from the use of green products?
