The newest version of the LEED® rating system includes a key update, Green Seal-certified cleaning products can now help facilities earn 2 points toward LEED certification. This means that our HOST Dry Extraction Cleaners can account for 5% of the 40 points buildings need to earn the minimum level LEED® certification. The updates are part of the draft LEED v5.0 Rating System for Operations and Maintenance: Existing Buildings, which the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) recently released for public comment.

In the previous version of LEED, v4.1, Green Seal-certified products could contribute toward 1 LEED point. The doubling of the point value in the newest version reflects the growing recognition of the role of green cleaning products in sustainable building operations.

The Green Seal® is awarded to products that meet the standards of performance, safety and reliability. Because two HOST dry extraction cleaners achieved the Green Seal Certification, you can be sure that they will promote a cleaner, healthier environment, cause less toxic pollution, reduce waste and conserve resources and habitats.
