Best Practices

OGS has compiled best practices for the types and use of equipment and chemical products; plans, procedures, and policies; training; and preventive measures. The best practices are organized into five categories; general, carpet, floor, food area/kitchen, and restroom cleaning. Users can filter for categories by selecting from a dropdown list.

For those facilities where the U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification is a consideration, OGS has flagged best practices that, in part or in whole, contribute toward obtaining credits for a LEED Existing Building Certification. These best practices fall into the Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) section of the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance Green Building Rating System and are cited as LEED-EB IEQ. For more information, this document is available for download in the Additional Resources section of this website.
