Environmentally-Friendly Service is Newest Innovation by National Cleaning Service Franchisor
January 23, 2008 // Franchising.com // St. Louis, Missouri, USA... Stratus Building Solutions, a St. Louis-based franchisor of retail-commercial-industrial building cleaning service franchises nationwide, has launched a new, system-wide "GreenClean" janitorial program which uses safe, environmentally-friendly products and services to help sustain healthier, more productive work places for clients.
Stratus Building Solutions ( www.stratusclean.com ) is one of the first commercial cleaning service franchisors in the United States to offer this advanced level of environmentally-friendly cleaning products and services, which are proven to be less harmful to the natural environment, and which result in safer, healthier work places for employees of clients utilizing the GreenClean service.
Dennis Jarrett, CEO of Stratus Building Solutions, said, "GreenClean is now being implemented throughout our franchise system as an optimum, standard-setting service with products and services that help reduce pollution and waste, conserve environmental resources and, also, minimize global warming and ozone depletion.
"In addition, Stratus Building Solutions franchisors and franchise employees will follow newly regimented procedures for clients utilizing our GreenClean service, which is a pro-active effort by our company to promote healthier work facilities and conserve natural resources," Jarrett said.
GreenClean service is the newest in a full range of state-of-the-art commercial cleaning service options offered by Stratus Building Solutions, which is partnering with JohnsonDiversey, Inc., a global provider of hygienic cleaning solutions, in offering the new environmentally-friendly GreenClean service. JohnsonDiversey is an independent sister company of Johnson & Johnson.
Stratus Building Solutions' GreenClean service uses products and service techniques which meet or exceed the standards of Green Seal ( www.greenseal.org ), an independent, not-for-profit organization that identifies and endorses products which reduce pollution and waste while conserving natural resources.
As part of the GreenClean service and procedural cleaning regimen, Stratus Building Solutions franchisee cleaning staff will provide client companies with "go green" tips and recycling reminders, in the form of brochures and other tools, to help companies take steps to help sustain work places as healthy, earth-friendly, high-performance facilities.
"Research has shown that products and procedures used in our GreenClean service can help improve employee health and productivity by improving the quality of indoor facilities," Jarrett said. "GreenClean services also can help sustain or improve an organization's reputation and brand identity in today's 'green-sensitive" business world, and support opportunities to market commercial facilities as environmentally user-friendly," he added.
Pete Frese, president of Stratus Building Solutions, said, "We are extremely enthusiastic about our new GreenClean program because it distinguishes Stratus Building Solutions in the commercial cleaning franchise industry while offering our franchisors and clients proven high quality environmentally-productive service options."
Stratus Building Solutions offers 16 different cleaning service franchise plans providing modern, "environmentally safe" cleaning systems, products, services and marketing support to franchisees. Franchise benefits include orientation and training; customer referrals; administrative and accounting support; pre-arranged credit lines; access to insurance and surety bonds, financing options, business reviews; promotional support; and other turn-key advantages.
