ServiceMaster Green of Des Moines has long stood out among contract green cleaning services in central Iowa. In July 2008, we earned Green Seal’s GS-42 certification. In doing so, we joined the elite number of only a few commercial cleaning services nationwide — and became the first one in Iowa — with that certification, which is the standard for environmental responsibility. We are still the only commercial cleaning service in central Iowa certified by Green Seal.
Green Seal is a nonprofit organization dedicated to safeguarding the environment and transforming the marketplace by promoting the manufacture, purchase, and use of environmentally responsible services and products. ServiceMaster Green of Des Moines’ successful completion of GS-42 certification — the environmental gold standard for cleaning services — further demonstrates our company’s commitment to serving our customers and protecting the environment in ways that none of our competitors can match. The vast majority of companies that apply for GS-42 certification are denied because they cannot meet Green Seal’s demanding standards for excellence.
Green Seal certification requires a rigorous application and review process, which includes an on-site inspection by an independent auditor who assesses whether all the procedures and products a contract cleaning service uses comply with the Green Seal standards. When ServiceMaster Green of Des Moines passed the inspection and was granted Green Seal certification, we joined a select group. See the entire list of companies nationwide who have achieved this coveted designation.
We at ServiceMaster Green of Des Moines are proud and honored to have earned this certification. This third party validation speaks volumes about the quality, innovation, and environmental stewardship our central Iowa customers can expect when they turn to ServiceMaster Green of Des Moines for all of their green cleaning needs.
