Sustainable Solutions for Your Facility

Sustainable Solutions

How do you measure the sustainability of your facility? While environmentally certified products are one part of the sustainability equation, at Ferguson Facilities Supply we look at the entire lifecycle of the products used in your facility to find the right fit. It’s about long-term thinking… how to make the assets in your facility last longer and operate more efficiently.

Our culture continues to adopt sustainable practices not just as part of programs, but as a way of life. From protecting the health of building occupants to enhancing your business image, the benefit of moving toward greater sustainability grows stronger every day.

Sustainable Buildings

When it comes to sustainable buildings, each facility has its own unique formula of programs, procedures and products that make up their balanced equation.

Beyond the Label

While environmentally certified products (such as paper products made with alternative fibers and trash bags made from recycled resin) are a clear choice for many facilities, sometimes it’s the less obvious purchases that can have the biggest impact.

Consider these examples:

  • Invest in quality matting. It can protect your carpets and floors from soils being tracked in. Replacing carpets/floors is not only expensive, but also environmentally unfriendly. You can make the life of a floor last 2 times longer with a proper floor care program.
  • Invest in quality equipment. Equipment makes the labor force better and faster at their jobs, which can lead to a cleaner and long-lasting floor.
  • Invest in quality commercial chemicals. The right chemicals can extend the life of your floors, fixtures, and other surfaces. You don’t want to replace your urinals every 3 years because you’ve been using the wrong cleaner. Using a high-quality neutralizer to remove damaging ice-melt stains on floors will help your floors survive another season.

These examples center on protecting the assets in your building – taking good care of them is the more sustainable option than replacing them.
