The Importance of EPA and CDC Approved Cleaning Products

Cleaning products can be found everywhere today, but not all of them are safe to use in your office, facility, or home. Some products contain harmful chemicals that are unsafe to have in your home especially. If you’re concerned about what you’re using in your office, facility or home, make sure you check the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) websites to verify that what you’re using has been approved by these federal organizations. FlowerHill Facility Services only uses EPA and CDC-approved cleaning agents in their cleaning processes to keep you, your employees, and your patrons safe.

Protecting Human Health and the Environment

Federal, state, and local government regulatory agencies have designated certain chemicals as hazardous to human health and/or our environment. These agencies have created rules regarding how these chemicals are used in homes, schools, businesses, and other places we spend time. It is all of our responsibility to do our part to protect ourselves, family members, co-workers, and visitors from harmful chemical exposures in our environments at home or work.  

By following the rules and regulations implemented by these government agencies, you protect not only your health but the health of those that come into contact with your business, such as employees or customers. You also protect human health and the environment by utilizing safe cleaning products or by hiring a cleaning company that uses safe products in all of their cleaning services.

FlowerHill Facility Services offers janitorial services and facility upkeep using EPA and CDC-registered cleaning products to ensure the safety and good health of both humans and the environment.  

Effectiveness of Cleaning Products

By law, all commercial cleaning products sold in America must meet specific guidelines set by both the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). These organizations have been compiling research on ingredients found in cleaning products for decades. 

Today, these two agencies mandate that all cleaning products sold to consumers be reviewed for safety before they hit store shelves. If you work in an office or business environment, you are likely familiar with commercial cleaning products like floor cleaners, carpet cleaners, hand soap, and disinfectants. Commercial cleaning products are used throughout our schools, hospitals, and other public buildings as well.

FlowerHill Facility Services only uses CDC and EPA-approved cleaning products when cleaning facilities and businesses to ensure the protection of employees and patrons alike. Using only CDC and EPA-approved cleaning products ensures that commercial businesses, such as offices, are efficiently, effectively, and safely cleaned. You won’t have to worry about your employees’ or customers’ safety with S&T’s cleaning processes, procedures, and EPA and CDC-approved cleaning products.

How EPA & CDC Product Approval Works

All commercial cleaning products must go through rigorous testing to ensure they are safe for commercial use. Best practices are to purchase and use products that have been verified by both agencies, as these provide assurance about how safe a product is as well as its toxicity levels. If you need help finding commercial cleaning products that have been tested and approved by both agencies, visit either the CDC or the EPA’s websites.

There is a lot of testing and studying that goes into determining whether a cleaning product is effective and safe as well. To learn more about the CDC’s mission as well as cleaning recommendations and approved cleaning protocols, go to

The EPA works to protect the public’s health and the environment’s health. Through testing and rigorous studies, the EPA determines the safest yet effective cleaning products for use in commercial spaces. To learn more about the EPA’s laws and regulations for cleaning products, go to

What About Non-EPA, Non-CDC Approved Cleaners?

Make sure your cleaners are approved by either or both agencies. If they’re not, then you need to know that your cleaning products may be unsafe for humans and the environment. Non-EPA or non-CDC-approved cleaners generally have dangerous concentrations of chemicals in them or may not have enough effective cleaning agents in them to do the job they are intended for. This means that they can be harmful to your health and to your commercial space.

On top of that, non-EPA or non-CDC-approved cleaners don’t undergo any testing for effectiveness in disinfecting and sanitizing. So if you want to stay safe and ensure maximum effectiveness when it comes to commercial cleaning products, stick with a commercial cleaning company that can guarantee they use EPA and/or CDC-approved products like Flower Hill Facility Services.
