Complete the full business eco clean in London

May 31st, 2013 Category: Building Management

Businesses in London are in the fortunate position of having access to a full range of eco-friendly services, as new businesses pop-up enabling carbon-conscious businesses and workers to mitigate their impact on the environment.

When it comes to cleaning, one can often underestimate the impact average day-to-day procedures can have on the environment. But the chemicals used in most modern cleaning equipment can be very hazardous, and it is worth keeping that in mind when overhauling your personal approach to sustainability or the business strategy.

Building management is one of the most important aspects of greening the business. Most eco-friendly policies are administered in relation to recycling and waste, but it is crucial that the daily clean isn’t overlooked. This means tactfully using resources – such as electricity and water – and reducing the amount of harmful chemicals being used. Thankfully, there are service providers in the London area which can take these responsibilities on board, keeping the building well kept with little impact on the environment.

Another such company to recently have started is a specialist eco-friendly dry cleaning firm near Tower Bridge. The owners claim the shop is the result of a growing demand for completely chemical-free clothing and textile care, becoming the first full wet cleaning store in the area. The process is energy efficient and so should not be more expensive than a regular clean, which is a common concern for businesses and workers when considering environmentally-friendly procedures.

Transport is another area to have improved its green credentials, helping London’s workers commute to and from work without having a big impact on the environment. New buses and cycle routes are to be implemented in the capital in an effort to reduce the amount of Co2 emitted from the city, which helps in the overall green goals of London businesses.
