Custodial Services Partnering With Service Solutions to Bring ‘Green Cleaning’ to Texas A&M-Corpus Christi

July 19, 2012

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX –Custodial Services and Service Solutions are working together to bring “Green Cleaning” to the Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi campus.

Custodians are using Green Seal-certified cleaning solutions, HEPA-vacuum cleaners, microfiber cleaning cloths, and microfiber mops supplied by Service Solutions, a premium provider of support services for educational institutions. The microfiber products pick up more dirt than normal rags which allows staff to reduce chemical usage and lessen chemical pollution in the water stream.

Ground services manager Randy Haaker said his department is doing everything possible to help the environment. However, he stressed that it is important for students to help the cause by recycling.

“I would urge students to try not to litter,” Haaker said. “Because things like cigarette butts eventually lead straight to the bay.”

Haaker added that the decision for the Island University to “Go Green” has resulted in better indoor air quality for students, faculty, staff, and visitors, which have been proven to improve productivity, decrease absenteeism, and improve students’ test scores. The University and Service Solutions have made “Green Cleaning” a permanent part of sustaining a learning environment.
