Green Cleaning

Medallion’s Cleaning for Health Program (CHP) combines the use of environmentally certified cleaning solutions, ergonomic tools, equipment, training, and processes to reduce the environmental footprint of operations and create a healthy work environment for everyone who uses our customers’ facilities.

Minimize Chemical Exposure

Our approach to cleaning minimizes the risk of chemical exposure for building occupants while reducing the impact of wastewater on the environment. We achieve these goals by using green-certified cleaning materials and products that meet or exceed EPA guidelines as well as the requirements of programs such as the USGBC LEED green building certification system or the WELL Building Standard®.

Our Facility Services team selects environmentally friendly products that do not emit high levels of VOCs and offer the highest percentage of post-consumer recycled content. In many cases, we also select products that come from rapidly renewable sources.

Resource Efficient Equipment

Cleaning tasks are performed as efficiently as possible using ergonomic tools and technologies that minimize the use of chemicals, water and energy.

Proactive Pollution Prevention

Green cleaning also reduces VOCs or volatile organic compounds which are known to have negative health effects to human health, including headaches, irritation of the eyes and respiratory tract, dizziness, and memory impairment.

Market Recognized And Certified

Green cleaning solutions will help to reduce your environmental impact and ensure the longevity and wellbeing of the planet.

Energy Efficiency

Medallion has delivered significant energy reductions while achieving operational sustainability at customer sites and in our office spaces.

Our cleaning technologies

maximize water efficiency

while providing optimal results.

Here’s How We Did It:

  • We even offer water audits to customers who are interested in achieving similar results.

Refuse, Reuse, Recycle

Before we throw any large items away, we identify the best possible disposal option, whether it’s recycling the materials the item is made of or refurbishing products for reuse whenever possible. We recycle or donate the majority of the waste from our facilities through local community partnerships
