Green and Healthy Housekeeping

The building management entity should have a policy that requires the use of healthy cleaning procedures and techniques. Custodial staff should be trained in the building's green housekeeping and low-toxic cleaning practices. If it's an option, have product supplier representatives come in to give trainings on the safe use of their products. Get feedback from custodial staff on their experience with using new products (or techniques) and adjust products or practices as necessary.

Informational sessions and a guide to green and healthy cleaning practices should also be provided for residents, to encourage the use of such practices in their homes as well. The Healthy Home Guide for Residents of the Plaza Apartments, published by Enterprise Community Partners, provides one example of a green O&M guide for residents.
