Chemspec products achieve GREENGUARD certification

Chemspec announces that ten products from its Detergent Free Cleaning line have been GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified. 

Baltimore, MD – May 19, 2010 – Chemspec, a leading manufacturer of cleaning products for the residential and institutional marketplaces today announces that ten products from its Detergent Free Cleaning line have been GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified. These same products also received certification under the more stringent GREENGUARD Children & Schools product emission standard.

Indoor Air Quality is an issue that has been pushed in to the spotlight in recent years as facility managers and homeowners alike focus on creating healthier living and working spaces. “As we have done in the past, we have chosen to take the lead on indoor air quality,” said Chemspec General Manager Terry Tabler. “It is important to know the environmental impact of our products, and have those results recognized by a qualified third-party certification such as GREENGUARD.”

The GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification is an extension to the established GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification Program to more effectively limit children’s exposure to high levels of potentially harmful chemicals. United States Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 50% of US schools have IAQ problems.

“The health and safety of our children is always of great concern. We are pleased that we can offer products that are proven to reduce a child’s exposure to VOCs and contribute to an overall healthier and cleaner learning environment,” says Gary Polyoka, Chemspec Director of New Business Development.

“We are extremely excited to receive the GREEENGUARD Children & Schools Certification,” says Frank Kinmonth, Chemspec Vice President of Sales. “This is the toughest certification in the industry to obtain and further illustrates our commitment to providing our customers with safer, healthier cleaning products.”
