CORPORATE JANITORIAL SERVICES
Corporate success in today’s highly competitive work environment is dependent on a lot of factors and a neat and pollutant free environment also goes a long way in ensuring corporate success.
Every day the average human takes in 20,000 breaths equal in weight of 35 pounds or the average weight of a typical 4 year old child. What we breathe goes directly into our lungs and bloodstream at an alarming rate. For these and other reasons, protecting the quality of this life giving resource is our first and primary starting point for all we do.
What has been observed:
Corrosive ingredients in most cleaners are severe eye, skin and respiratory irritants. Some toilet bowl cleaners contain sulfates, which may trigger asthma attacks in those with asthma. And bathroom cleaners containing sodium hydroxide, sodium hypochlorite (bleach), or phosphoric acid can irritate lungs and burn eyes, skin and, if ingested, internal organs.
Some window cleaners contain ammonia, which may irritate the airways and will release toxic chloramine gases if accidentally mixed with chlorine-containing cleaners.
Chemical drain cleaners are among the most dangerous of all cleaning products. Most contain corrosive ingredients such as sodium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite (bleach) that can permanently burn eyes and skin. Some can be fatal if ingested.
Skin contact with some furniture polishes can cause irritation, and many brands contain nerve-damaging petroleum distillates, which are flammable and dangerous if swallowed. Some formulations may contain formaldehyde, a suspected carcinogen. Aerosol spray furniture polishes are easily inhaled into lung tissue.
The Larmart Solution
As a janitorial service company, our program is focused on the Health of the occupants of the facility we service and that is why we call it Green Cleaning - health first.
We strongly believe the Starting Point is the indoor air quality of the existing environment. The negative or positive IAQ of this indoor environment affects everyone and can be controlled by better practices. We must make health and safety of the air we breathe as very important.
Most organization work in a closed environment where all activity is being generally recycled many times over, meaning that those who work there are routinely being exposed to recycled vapors and VOCs caused by cleaning chemicals.

WE ALSO DO POST CONSTRUCTION CLEANING
We like to do our post-construction cleans over two days if the schedule allows. We do this because construction dust is a pervasive menace that hangs in the air. We do a “90% clean” the first day… vacuuming, sticker and tape removal, damp wiping, more vacuuming, mopping… Depending on the order that things were done we may need to do extensive wall washing or scrubbing of paint drips. It’s not perfect by our standards, but it’s pretty good. Then we walk away and let the dust settle overnight.
The next day we come back to do a final dusting of horizontal surfaces and shining of shiny things. We refer to this as our “110% clean” and the space will be ready for move in when we are done with it. We will also be sure to communicate any issues or repairs that need to be done before handing it over to the owner. It always leaves a better impression with the client if you can tell them about a repair that you will have someone coming back to take care of before they notice it themselves… we all know they’re going to find it and complain about it anyway! It’s always better to be proactive.
What makes us really convenient to work with is that we also do windows!
