Are cleaning chemicals making your employees or customers sicker? The necessity of using Health Canada approved products

Many businesses may not realize that using the wrong cleaning products and chemicals can be hazardous to customers’ and employees’ health. Bleach, for example, is not safe to use because its toxic when inhaled.  Some cleaning companies continue to use it on a large scale.

Here is why it is important to use Health Canada approved cleaning products:

Safety is crucial

With the ongoing pandemic, cleaning companies need to make use of chemicals that have been approved for sale in Canada. For example, the latest cleaning chemicals for hospitals are formulated not just to clean and disinfect but to counteract dangerous infections, the spread of germs and other threats to health. Approved chemicals should also be easy to use while delivering efficiency and speed.

Environmentally friendly

Eco-certified chemicals reduce environmental impact. Certified chemicals indicate a product has undergone testing and auditing. Eco-friendly products improve the indoor environment which is crucial for every space whether it is an office, a building, hospital or any kind of premises. They improve the surroundings and are safe for health because the materials/ properties used are free of harmful chemicals and components. People are comfortable when they know they are not exposed to dangerous elements.

Credibility is important

Approved chemicals that are safe to use and have a high efficacy rate are on Health Canada’s list of hard-surface disinfectants with evidence against COVID-19. Products that are safe to use have a Drug Identification Number (DIN) on the disinfectant product label. Drug Identification Number is a computer-generated eight-digit number assigned by Health Canada to a drug product before being marketed in Canada. Professional cleaning companies use credible and approved chemicals during all cleaning and disinfection processes. Ensuring the use of safe, efficient, credible, and approved chemicals should be the priority for all professional cleaning companies.
