One thing 2020 has shown us is that it is necessary to elevate our perception of cleaning. Shifting from the visual inspection of “does this look clean and smell clean” to ensuring that we are removing and eliminating dangerous pathogens. We are surrounded by germs, bugs, bacteria, fungal spores and viruses like COVID-19. They live on surfaces, door knobs, light switches, equipment, devices, walls, and floors. We call these high touch points (HTPs). It’s important to understand there is a difference between cleaning and disinfecting. Cleaning physically removes rather than kills microorganisms and decreases the risk of spreading and causing infection.
Disinfecting uses chemicals to kill and inactivate microorganisms. It doesn’t necessarily clean dirty surfaces; however it may be required prior to cleaning to ensure worker safety if there is a known recent contamination, as bacteria and viruses can remain infectious on surfaces. Cleaning and disinfection is a two step process which should be done daily on all high touch point areas.
Sparkle Freshness uses EPA-approved hospital grade disinfectants. We are a full service janitorial company providing daily cleanings and disinfecting, floor care, carpet maintenance, deep cleaning, COVID-19 cleaning and disinfecting, window cleaning and other services. We are leaders in the commitment to sustainability in the cleaning industry. We are an environmentally conscious company with the three pillars of sustainability – economic viability, environmental protection, and social equity.
“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.”

Sparkle Freshness mission for sustainability goes deeper than just our business philosophy and commitment. It’s how we live our day to day, for the health and wellbeing of our family, community, and the environment. We started Sparkle Freshness with the goal of helping to promote a healthy, productive, and toxin-free environment by making your workplace spotless and clean through our janitorial services. Many products commonly used for cleaning and maintenance are among the most hazardous and potentially dangerous toxins. This is why Sparkle Freshness’ very foundation was based on the knowledge that there was a safer and more effective way of cleaning, and why we only use the highest quality, non-toxic, environmentally friendly cleaning products. Additionally, our cleaning procedures use best practice protocols to prevent indoor pollution and reduce exposure to toxic chemicals by using pump sprays or foggers and avoiding aerosols. When needed, we offer safe and natural alternatives that often work just as well as more toxic products.
At Sparkle Freshness we understand that being consciously aware of our environment is not enough. We are committed to making global changes to our planet and in our local communities and continuously reviewing and improving our cleaning practices in areas like:
Green procurement and pollution prevention. To avoid exposing our clients to harmful cleaning chemicals, all Sparkle Freshness products are environmentally friendly and purchased from “green” vendors, and use “green” products, such as paper products (e.g., facial tissues, paper towels, toilet paper, and napkins) in addition to supplying Safer Choice label items. Safer Choice helps consumers, businesses, and purchasers find products that perform and contain ingredients that are safer for human health and the environment. Safer Choice is an EPA Pollution Prevention (P2) program, which includes practices that reduce, eliminate, or prevent pollution at its source, such as using safer ingredients in products.
Waste reduction, through material reduction, reuse, and recycling. As part of our reduction effort, for carpet cleaning services, our encapsulation machine uses 80% less water than commonly used equipment.
Our public outreach and engagement efforts include carbon offsetting for the emission of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Carbon offsetting is used to balance out these emissions by helping to pay for emission savings in other parts of the world. After your first month of service, Sparkle Freshness will have trees planted in your company’s name on our behalf. We’ve planted over five thousand trees to date.
Our commitment to cleanliness also reaches into our community. We are a proud sponsor of the Adopt-A-highway program and currently have 2 sections of the freeway on/off ramps cleaned. You can see our efforts on the 5 Fwy going North bound after Tamarack and on the 78 Fwy at San Marcos Blvd, East bound.
