Sustainable Cleaning at the University of Wisconsin

Facility managers at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee recognize the importance of environmentally responsible, sustainable cleaning.

They select only those cleaning products and systems that meet the following criteria:

o Ecologically sound, using less water and chemical and having a reduced impact on the environment

o Socially just, eliminating or minimizing the custodians' exposure to toxic chemicals and helping to making the cleaning workers' jobs safer and easier

o Economically efficient, using products and systems that meet high performance standards yet are cost effective

When it comes to restroom cleaning, the product that best meets these criteria, according to the university, is the Kaivac No-Touch Cleaning(TM) system.

According to a university spokesperson, the Kaivac system is more efficient and effective than traditional cleaning methods such as cleaning cloths, mops, and buckets.

It also utilizes less labor and less cleaning agent to get the job done right.
