The Wake Forest University green cleaning initiative reduces environmental and human health risk across the campus core in the following ways:
-Cleaning for Health first and then for appearance
-Disposing of cleaning wastes in a environmentally responsible manner
-Increased worker safety and awareness
-Increased level of sanitation of building surfaces
-Responsible and proper removal of pollutants from the facility
-Reduction of chemical, particle and moisture residue
-Minimization of human exposure to pollutants.
The Facilities and Campus Services warehouse staff work closely with the procurement staff to maintain an inventory of Green Seal-certified products for the housekeeping staff.
Although the university has not pursued a certified cleaning program, the "Demon Deacons Team Cleaning" approach focuses on the health of the building occupants and the cleaning staff as well as the reduced impact the products and procedures have on the indoor and outdoor environment. Environmentally preferable cleaning strategies, procedures, training, and purchasing guidelines for consumables, tools and equipment are all part of responsible cleaning.
The low-impact team cleaning process is employed in all academic and administrative buildings on campus. However, even in the Residence Halls where the Team Cleaning approach is not well suited, we have incorporated the use of Green Seal-certified paper products and cleaning chemicals.
