The demand for environment-friendly industrial maintenance products continues to grow as consumers become more aware of the risks involved in using ordinary cleaning chemicals. "Sick building syndrome," high-rises with windows that don't open, and increased personnel sensitivity are all issues driving this demand. Fortunately, in the last decade, there has been an exponential increase in the availability of "green" industrial maintenance products.

Finding Eco-Friendly Industrial Maintenance Products Online

The Internet is your primary resource for finding green industrial maintenance products. Though non-toxic, biodegradable, environmentally safe cleaners may not appear at the top of the list in catalogs from standard suppliers, products such as Simple Green are quickly gaining in popularity. Also, there are hundreds of sites exclusively dedicated to eco-friendly supplies.

Many of these products are based on substances such as baking soda and citrus. Not only are they less dangerous to the environment, they also contribute to a more pleasant atmosphere, both for the cleaning staff who must use them and the personnel who occupy the space. Harsh chemicals and the odors that accompany them are fast disappearing from industrial environments.

You may have concerns about whether these products work as well as more traditional solutions. Check out consumer sites to get feedback from others who have used them. While some are simply not as effective as the chemicals they are designed to replace, others do the job admirably, with a lot of fringe benefits as well.
