Green Buildings Use Floor Mat Rental Services
We all are aware that our natural resources are limited. It is impossible to read a newspaper or watch television without seeing information about the need for conservation. Whether it is in our home or in your business, it is important to use our natural resources in more efficient ways. “Green Initiative” can help to reduce the stress on our natural resources and help us control our overall cost of doing business as well.
We at NDC have always been very proud of all of the strides we have made being a green, ecologically friendly company. Using a commercial laundry service combines many loads of laundry and saves water, electricity, detergent, and cuts down on pollution in incredible quantities. If our customers each did their own laundry, it would require hundreds of thousands of gallons of extra water, hundreds of gallons of extra detergent, much more electricity to run individual washers and dryers, and it would produce a tremendous amount of wastewater. We have been evaluating our business practices and are now taking “Green Initiative” to a new level.
Every rental mat program has, among others, one clear goal: to trap and prevent contaminants from entering a space. In the case of green buildings, NDC’s rental mat program complies with the rating system created by the U.S. Green Building Council. It’s simply another way to provide outstanding service to our customers.
Greatly Reduced Water Consumption
We’ve taken extra measures to ensure our operations are as water-reuse friendly as possible. Thanks to Chemco water treatment systems, our consumption of water has been reduced by 40%, on top of improvements previously made.
Rental Mats are Green
The products and materials currently used in new construction tend to be more and more environmentally friendly, but there are also ways to mitigate the pollution, dirt, soil, and other contaminants that may enter any particular space. Floor mats and carpets are among some of these methods. New air-conditioning and noise-reduction systems are also developed with this objective in mind.
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that indoor air may be 2 to 5 times as polluted as the air outside. It’s also estimated that over three-quarters of the dust, soil and contaminants in a building come right through the door, on people’s feet.
High-quality mats and carpets help maintain a greener environment inside buildings all over America. We can contain 85% of the dirt and soil brought into any building within the first 10 to 12 feet. Your rental mat service with NDC can then be a key element in creating a greener building and maintaining appropriate green housekeeping criteria.
Rental Mat Services
Our rental mat service is an integral component of your green building strategies. Why? Because all of our mats are constructed to catch more dirt and soil, and our professional laundering service help prolong the life and performance of the mats.
For example, a floor mat rental program will help you to achieve your LEED certification and qualify for a GREEN BUILDING. Take the initiative to help the environment.
