PROTECT STUDENT HEALTH WITH SAFER DISINFECTION

 

Healthy Green Schools & Colleges’ Guidelines for COVID-19 Cleaning and Disinfection provide K-12, college and university facility, custodial and housekeeping managers actionable best practices to protect students, staff and custodial personnel amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The guidelines were developed in partnership with recognized leaders in green cleaning and facilities management at schools and universities, and are based on the latest scientific understanding of the particular characteristics of the COVID-19 virus.

The recommendations reflect Green Seal’s expertise in setting science-based standards for high-performance cleaning products and practices that reduce unnecessary use of hazardous chemicals and promote safer and healthier indoor air. They also reflect Healthy Schools Campaign’s experience working directly with facility cleaning directors and custodial leaders at schools and colleges across the country for more than a decade.

 

 

 

FROM KINDERGARTEN TO COLLEGE, YOU WANT YOUR SCHOOLS TO BE HEALTHY AND SAFE

Green Seal® can help.

 

 

Cleaning is essential to protecting health. Unfortunately, cleaning products often contain harmful, flammable, or carcinogenic chemicals and asthmagens – sometimes even when they are advertised as “green” or “natural.”

Younger, developing bodies can be extra vulnerable to threats from toxic chemicals and polluted indoor air. Greener education settings can mean fewer sick days, lower maintenance costs, and safer environments for students and staff.

For decades, Green Seal has been a vital resource for school districts, colleges, and universities across the country to transform their campuses into cleaner, healthier places to live, learn and play.

Purchasing greener products and implementing a green cleaning program in your school can have the following benefits:


Improved Indoor Air Quality

Less dust
Fewer allergens
Strict VOC limits


Reduced Incidents of Illness

Reduction in reported illnesses
Fewer reported doctor visits
Fewer days absent
