Now playing on BUILDINGSVIP:
Green Sweep: LEED-Certified Cleaning Practices

Visit our sponsor
The color of clean is now green, a fact that cannot be whitewashed, given the U.S. Green Building Council’s prerequisite that LEED-certified buildings have a green cleaning program in place.

This webinar will include pointers on how to draft a green cleaning policy; how to evaluate green cleaning contractors; how to handle entryways, cleaning closets, and other building spaces; and how to choose environmentally sound cleaning products and equipment.
