A Mission of Health and Safety
Founded in 1978, 4M Building Solutions services 95 million square feet of facility space each day. The company employs over 3,000 team members and operates in 14 states. The underlying mission of 4M’s business is to create a safe, healthy environment for their clients’ stakeholders whether they be employees, tenants, or customers. A lack of cleanliness not only reflects on 4M’s reputation and that of their clients but can contribute to a number of health issues. 4M’s commitment to Cleaning for Health is evident in the approach they take to their cleaning programs. Starting at the root by using products and procedures that are certified by Green Seal, GreenGuard, and the Carpet and Rug Institute, and encompassing all those efforts with extensive training to ensure the cleanest and safest environments is something 4M is proud to do to in order to keep each person they come in contact with as healthy as possible.
What is Cleaning for Health?
Cleaning for Health is defined as a cleaning regimen that helps dramatically reduce the levels of allergens and asthma triggers in the indoor environment. The purpose is to create indoor environments where building occupants feel better and can be more productive. ProTeam supports Cleaning for Health by designing vacuums with advanced filtration systems that capture many allergens and asthma triggers, leaving behind healthier indoor air.
