The Green Pride to our Clean Cause

Innovations and technology are part of everyday life today. From heavy machinery to cleaning chemicals, a number of products and services are created to reduce human effort and make tasks convenient. But as economies prosper, the impact on the environment is side-lined. The world needs a holistic approach to pave a pathway to sustainable development. In short, ‘Green’ is our future!

Green products, technologies, equipment and services are the need of the hour. Each individual’s choices matter to ensure a secure future for the planet. GreenPro is a certification system that aids environmentally conscious customers to make an informed choice. The certification, launched by CII-Sohrabji Godrej Green Business Centre, facilitates the positioning of a product as eco-friendly. It also tells users that they have picked non-toxic, carcinogen-free products.

The GreenPro certification system adopts a thorough evaluation procedure that adheres to international standards to determine how ‘Green’ a product is. The parameters that assess a product ensure that it is safe to the environmental elements, organisms and human beings. Material health, material re-usability, renewable energy and carbon management, stewardship and social fairness are some parameters derived from Cradle to Cradle certification’s standards.

This comprehensive approach encourages manufacturers to design a ‘Green Life Cycle’, which includes innovation, raw materials, manufacturing process, product stewardship, performance during usage and recycling or disposal. The certification helps validate the ‘Greenness’ of a product, backed by credible information about its features.

Green building materials, industrial products, technologies, consumer items and services are eligible for the GreenPro certification. Grenove is proud to have eight GreenPro certified sustainable solutions in its range. Our GreenPro range includes Adamant P, Rinse HW, Danex N, Danex Sanispray, Danex WC, Glass Expert Universal, Radopal and Sensy Antismoke Gentle. Transform your spaces with our sustainable solutions.

Never settle for settled dust!

Dust is omnipresent! Sand, soil, dead skin, pollen, soot, fabric fibres, hair and more contribute to the layers that accumulate on your surfaces every day.

Visible dust particles are an eyesore, but dust can be the reason for sore eyes, throat and more! It is a common cause of allergic reactions. Dust accumulation can also permanently stain furniture and hard surfaces, and also hinder the functioning of ventilation, heating and cooling systems.

Regular dusting is a part of a good sanitation regime. Horizontal surfaces must be dusted at least a couple of times a week and vertical surfaces need the same every fortnight.

Static dusters, duster extensions and microfiber cloths are essential for basic dusting. Vacuum cleaners with brush attachments are effective when it comes to upholstery and hard-to-reach areas.

To ensure that dust doesn’t flow from one part of the room to another, start from a corner and work your way clockwise or anti-clockwise. Take care to start on top and move your way downwards. Move each object and dust under the surface.

Gently wipe monitor and TV screens with a dry microfiber cloth. Using newspaper, tissue paper and other materials with window cleaning surfactants scratches the surface. Special anti-static cleaners help get rid of fingerprints and prevent immediate accumulation of dust.

Blinders need to be dusted from top to bottom on each blind and as a whole unit. Vacuum cleaners with brush attachments can also be used to clean blinders. This can be used to rid upholstered furniture of dust too.

Fire extinguishers, signboards, frames, jambs, handrails, showcases, lights and other such articles that are not touched on a daily basis are places where layers of dust easily accumulate. Thoroughly dust each of these surfaces.

Desks, cabinets, drawer handles, partitions, light switches and windowsills are some areas that are regularly touched. These have a combination of fingerprints, oil residue and slight settlement of dust, which need to be wiped away.

Remember, wiping captures dust. Flicking cloths and dusters merely displaces dust to transfer it to another part of the room.

Attention to detail goes a long way. A well-dusted office looks neat, feels lively, encourages organisation and promotes a pleasant work environment besides keeping employees healthy.

Grenove’s sustainable solutions for the flood-affected Kolhapur

From flooring to food, every surface and item turns into a potential health hazard in the aftermath of a flood. While relief camps may house the survivors, it is difficult to prevent disease outbreaks without the right measures.

Every surface becomes a capable breeding ground for pathogenic microorganisms. Frequent disinfection is a necessity in such situations.

Floods increase the risk of water-borne and vector-borne diseases. With parasites on the loose, the risk of infection also becomes higher. It is scary that diseases like diarrhoea, cholera, typhoid, malaria, dengue and hepatitis A are not just common, but due to being contagious in nature, may result in an epidemic outbreak!

Chlorine infused with water is a commonly used disinfectant due to its ability to effectively disinfect surfaces by eliminating microorganisms. Further, hand and skin sanitizers help stay clean and reduce cross-contamination.

To aid the flood-affected in Sangli-Kolhapur, HMI Tabidez 56 (disinfecting Chlorine Tablets) and Gelasept (Gel-based hand & skin disinfectant) were donated by Grenove Services. We believe it is our responsibility to help fellow humans in distress. We pray for their well-being and hope that everything returns to normal soon.

Avoid these common housekeeping hazards!

Housekeeping isn’t just cleaning. It is constantly doing and redoing things to keep a place absolutely spec-free. Housekeeping staff is always on duty, be it in malls, supermarkets, educational institutions, IT companies or the hospitality industries. Housekeeping isn’t cleaning up an occasional mess; it is making sure that nothing creates a mess.

Tasks like cleaning up leftovers, organizing a mess or carrying out routine sanitary chores may seem mundane. But to keep things spotless, professional cleaners endure endless hazards. Some of these may even prove fatal! Most of us may have come across industrial cleaner related incidents that have caused serious casualties or deaths. The risks they knowingly or unknowingly get exposed to can be avoided.

Accidental exposure to biological hazards arising from bacteria, fungi and molds are a major concern. Even when cleaned regularly, microbial growth may result due to failure of thorough disinfection.
Health issues like itchy eyes, rashes, burns and respiratory conditions are most commonly found in professional cleaners, who are forced to compromise on healthy working conditions on a daily basis.

Industrial cleaning chemicals are known to be the root cause of most of these problems. Strong acids cause burns when they splatter. Harmful fumes from concentrated chemicals may lead to eye and skin irritation, respiratory problems, dizziness, nausea and more. Ammonia, bleaches and other strong ingredients, corrosive drain cleaners, strong degreasers, aerosol sprays, waxing and polishing products may trigger asthma or other breathing-related issues.

Protective gear such as gloves, masks, eye cover, sleeve protectors, aprons and so on, depending on the nature of the cleaning job, are a must for the professional cleaners. Training them to dilute, apply and dispose chemicals safely would also help reduce housekeeping accidents.
Using weaker acids, polymer-coated cleaning chemicals and surfactants that have a strong disinfecting action in place of corrosive, fuming chemicals would go a long way in making the working conditions safer. Chemicals that do not need much mechanical effort, like rough scrubbing,would not only preserve surfaces but also prevent muscular strain and prolonged exposure to chemicals. Multitasking chemicals that clean, shine and polish at once would also cut down the exposure.

Grenove Services Pvt. Ltd. supplies safe, polymer-coated, eco-friendly industrial cleaning chemicals by HMI, Bulgaria in India and the middle-east. We cater to the sanitation needs of the hospitality industry, health care industry, food industry, water treatment, factories and more.
