Green Cleaning: The custodial staff is friendly and take care of the campus to ensure students and faculty have a clean area to do their work. LEED certified buildings use a Concentrate 118 for cleaning (a mixture with vinegar). This product avoids harsh chemicals and is considered a "green" product. A lower concentrate is used for general cleaning areas like tables whereas bathrooms use a higher concentrated mix of Concentrate 118.
Other non-LEED certified buildings are adjusting to include fewer products with harsh chemicals and trying to "go green" when it comes to buying cleaners. Cleaning products used in these buildings, in particular the residence halls, use a peroxide concentrate for general cleaning.
Resident Halls allow students to check out green cleaning products to clean their dorms to encourage non-harsh cleaning supplies and to limit consumption and waste on campus.
