Plymouth, MN (Vocus) November 17, 2010
Advance now offers automatic scrubbers that meet the requirements for sustainable cleaning equipment specified by the Leadership for Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance Rating System (LEED-EBOM). Advance scrubbers that can contribute points to LEED-EBOM certification include the Advenger® with EcoFlex™ System and Adfinity® with EcoFlex™ System, among others.
The Advenger rider and Adfinity walk-behind scrubbers are both available with the EcoFlex System – an innovative scrubbing technology that lets operators easily select the right blend of down pressure, water and detergent for the job. The EcoFlex™ System also includes variable speed pumps and onboard chemical metering, which are requirements under the LEED-EBOM program.
The purchase of green cleaning equipment is a prerequisite to Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Credit 3.4: Green Cleaning – Sustainable Cleaning Equipment of the LEED-EBOM rating system. Requirements for automatic scrubbers and other powered cleaning equipment aim to reduce building contaminants and minimize environmental impact. Automatic scrubbers that meet IEQ Credit 3.4 by providing variable speed pumps and onboard chemical metering help reduce chemical and water use.
LEED for Existing Buildings-Operations and Maintenance is a voluntary standard for defining, measuring and certifying the sustainability of an existing commercial building. The individual sections and points of LEED-EBOM – including IEQ Credit 3.4 – work together to make up a complete sustainable building. Even if LEED certification is not a goal, it can be a guide toward establishing best practices for reducing the environmental impact of cleaning, improving the indoor environmental quality of buildings and lowering the cost to clean and maintain buildings.
