We use Green Seal-37 certified products as much as possible.
If Green Seal certified products are not available or effective for the job such as toilet bowl cleaner in an area with high iron concentrations in the water, the cleaning products must comply with the California Code of Regulation maximum allowable VOC (volatile organic compound) levels. Additionally if Green Seal products are not available, we consult with our supplier to find the most environmentally suitable product available.
