Re: building cleaning (and other) infomation
Check out the Janitorial Pollution Prevention Project page on the Western

While it is still under construction (the project is still underway) it contains
a number of draft fact sheets and great links for information in the

Subject: building cleaning (and other) infomation
I'm looking for a slew of information for various parts of building management
(examples below). I have found a great deal of information that targets the
individual home owner, but not a whole lot that goes after the building manager
audience. Any information (or conformation that there just isn't a whole to be

Use of Chemicals
Find out information/alternatives for some of the "standard" items now in use in
buildings; e.g., HVAC cleaners, white board cleaners, etc.
For both inside and outside the building. Things like disinfectants for
bathrooms, desk cleaners, etc.
I realize this is a rather large request, and a bit all over the place. I'm
just throwing this out there to see if anyone has any leads.
Thanks a bunch.
