Cleaning Tools

Integrate a full system of automated equipment certified by the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI™) such as vacuum cleaners with low noise output and proper dust filtration. Utilize microfiber cleaning systems and other tools for manual cleaning tasks such as dusting, mopping, and floor maintenance. Use advanced floor pads and the latest floor care technology to maintain floors. These tools can significantly reduce chemical usage and labor costs.

The community that a building impacts encompasses the occupants as well as the neighboring businesses and homes. An organization that develops their own Sustainable Systems will improve the marketability of their organization and of their property, increase tenant satisfaction, and establish themselves as a leader. Since Nassco's Sustainable Systems require an ongoing commitment to continuous improvement, an organization will benefit for many years to come.
