For those employees that work for an industrial organization that uses industrial cleaners to clean and degrease parts, metals, and materials with dirt, grime, grease, rust, stains, and other prohibitive particles, many only worry about the cleaning solution causing harm if they come into contact with the solvent. Rarely is any attention paid to the long term negative side effects to breathing in the gaseous toxins emanating from the solution. This is a naïve and incorrect assumption, as breathing in the airborne toxins can be as dangerous, if not more dangerous than having the contents spill on your skin. Though wearing a mask might be a quick and easy short term solutions, toxins can still pervade through the mask, and the toxins can also be absorbed into the materials in your clothing, meaning you will be breathing in the hazardous gases as long as you are wearing the clothing, which can subsequently cause serious conditions later in life. Although workers might be ignorant of the fact that they are putting themselves sin hazardous conditions when using older industrial cleaners, it is the job of the business owner to be on top of all the information related to his or her business, including the products being used. This includes protecting the air breathed by employees, which can be done by implementing environmentally conscious industrial cleaners in the workplace. Fortunately for business owners, there are options available that include making the move to eco friendly, green alternative industrial cleaners that perform cleaning and degreasing with the same efficiency as your out of date model. In addition, the newer, updated industrial cleaners and degreasers are less expensive than most older model solvents, which will reduce your overhead.
New model industrial cleaners are considered low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) solvents, meaning they emit a gas that is considered safe for both people to breath and for the environment to absorb. Making this easy and seamless transition will protect the air your breathe with the use of environmentally conscious industrial cleaners.
