ENVIRONMENTAL

When you consider the number of times your staff or visitors use your washrooms or toilets, it is important to adopt green practices wherever possible.

At OfficeCare we use a wide range of biotechnology-based products, which are organic plant-based ‘eco cleaning products’. These not only help maintain the highest levels of hygiene and cleanliness but, at the same time, ensures we do our bit to help the wider environment.

Protecting the health of staff and visitors

It is extremely important for us to protect the health and wellbeing of your staff and visitors, that’s why we only use cleaning agents which have zero impact on lung function.

Biodegradability over 28 days

The biosurfactants we use also conform to 99.99% ultimate biodegradability over 28 days – according to OECD test 301 (testing methods used by government, industry and independent laboratories) to identify and characterise potential hazards of chemicals.
