It doesn’t matter if you are the owner of a fast food restaurant, school, hotel, or health care facility – it is important to choose cleaning chemical supplies that are safe for you and others who visit your business. There’s nothing better than knowing your establishment is pristine and spotless. It can have a positive effect on both physical and mental health. However, choosing chemicals that are safe can require a bit off effort. We’ve broken down how to do so in the simplest way.

Read the Ingredients

Before you purchase any chemical supplies, be sure you take a look at the ingredient list. Some products may not have one and should be avoided. It’s important to understand that composes a product to have an idea of what effect it might have. To make this process easier, we’ve listed a few of the common ingredients that may not be safe in some environments.

  • Ammonia
  • Bleach & Triclosan
  • Chlorine Bleach

You can also look at labels of the products you may by to determine if they have warnings about being poisonous, irritant, or corrosive. While in some situations, these types of products may be okay, it’s important to be aware of what they are and what they do.

Think Beyond the Label

We just told you to read the ingredients, but not everything included on a chemical cleaning supply label is what it might seem to be. Some buzz words like “non-toxic” and “neutral” don’t have much meaning at all. They are mainly just there to make you feel better about the products you are going to be using. So, going back to our first tip, check the labels before you make a decision.

Consider Environmentally Friendly Options

When you choose a cleaning supply, you also need to make sure you can handle it properly and use it without causing harm to you, others, or the environment. Some cleaning products can cause chemical burns and other nasty injuries. Green cleaners are non-corrosive, which makes them a better bet anywhere that there are standards around skin absorption, combustibility, and toxicity. These are even sometimes the less expensive option available.
