As the world slowly begins to reopen businesses, lots of folks are looking for the right products and services to safely be ready for welcoming people back into their buildings. There are two main elements we will cover in this week's blog.
1. Green cleaners that will help facility managers clean the building without putting the occupant's health at risk. We focused on two certifications within the ecomedes platform. First we looked at products that are qualified by EPA through their Safer Choice program. Safer Choice helps consumers, businesses, and purchasers find products that perform and contain ingredients that are safer for human health and the environment. Second we looked at products that are Green Seal Certified. Green Seal focuses on environmental and health excellence and guarantees good performance.
2. Disinfectants that are qualified by EPA to their List N. This list is constantly updated by the agency. All products on this list meet EPA's criteria for use against SARS-CoV2, the virus that causes COVID-19. List N doesn't have product images and/or descriptions so we are working to bring that product data into the ecomedes platform like we do other eco standards.
Please keep in mind, cleaners don't always have disinfectants in them and and disinfectants aren't typically cleaners, so you will need to likely use both within your facilities to meet many of the protocols being developed for safe and healthy occupancy. Also be sure to read the instructions about application methods and warnings related to using certain products with others. The ecomedes team is excited to see buildings reopening to regular operations.
