Continuing Education

Thanks to all the insurance agents that came out to the continuing education class on ethics last Wednesday! We sure had a lot of fun! Stay tuned for announcements about our next classes: fire in August and mold in November.

Earth Day

With Earth Day last week, I thought I’d talk a bit about ServiceMaster of the Key City’s efforts to go Green with our green cleaning products. Green cleaning products are one of the best solutions to improve the health of your home as well as reduce the impact on the environment.

We use detergent-free cleaning products with FDA-approved ingredient lists. These green products do not have surfactants or wetting agents, which often contain chemicals harmful to the environment. Cleaning agents containing chemicals such as phosphorus and nitrogen travel down the drain and into your area’s water supply, creating adverse effects.

Certified green cleaning products are ideal for anyone suffering from asthma or various allergies because they don’t contain VOCs. As noted by the EPA, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are gasses emitted from some cleaning solutions which can have both short and long-term health effects. VOCs can be released by thousands of different products including paint strippers, pesticides and household cleaning products. Our green cleaning products contain no VOCs and:

  • Are odorless and solvent free
  • Have no corrosive ingredients
  • Use less detergent to reduce residue
  • Offer superior cleaning strength while reducing environmental impact
