About Us

Green and Healthy Buildings

For more than 15 years, our goal has been to upgrade the quality of every cleaning service.  Our online training program is the best anywhere and is available 24/7 as an online training program.  And, the training is available in English and Spanish.  Regardless of turnover of staff, our Basic Cleaning course and Green Cleaning Technician course is the best way to promote a superior cleaning team.

The Green Clean Institute promotes the best protocols for Green Cleaned Building with the Twenty Elements for Green Cleaning Services.  We have adopted the mission statement of "Education followed by Implementation", so the big question was how to take the great ideas found in our courses to the actual work done in thousands of buildings.  So, we are opening the door to those dedicated cleaning firms who want to do more than make empty promises.


As a woman with fifteen years at the Green Clean Institute, I would like to say a commendation to the multitude of great women I have worked with in every part of the country.  In my belief, women have a innate drive to do more than "Finish the Job".  Cleaning is about caring about people and lifestyle.  This is more than cleaning for appearance.  

No matter how you credit the influence of women, I believe that they care about people and their wellbeing.  We love a clean and beautiful house and building.  We also care about the comfort and small accommodations that make a building into a place where life and work is done safely and happily.


Women Owned BusinessOur mission is training, certification, and better management for cleaning services.  Essentially, the Green Clean Institute is an industry-wide certification that works to raise the standard for the industry.  The first step in any certification program is training.  To that end, we have online courses and we work with various training centers to provide live classes.  

The Green Clean Institute does not sell products.  For fifteen years, we have offered training and certification intended to improve the work and workplace conditions.  Cleaning is about appearance.  Green cleaning is about a healthy and friendly workplace.  

The maintenance program compliments the sustainable efforts of building construction, recycling, energy conservation and carbon footprint.  But, cleaning is a core piece of the building compliment to the cleaning staff, the workers and visitors of the building, and the overall contribution of the city.


Lorena MuroLorena Muro serves as the International Marketing Director for the Green Clean Institute.  Lorena won the honor of Mrs. Peru 2019 and has a profound career of Green and Sustainable programming.  With citizenship in the U.S. and Peru, her bilingual skills and international standing is remarkable.  

Lorena seeks to introduce the GCI Green Building and Green City program that represents transparent metrics impacting the other 95% of buildings or offices that are not available to smaller businesses.  Believing that Green is about health, we do not ignore sustainable issues.  The maintenance of buildings are constant and ongoing issues that have long-term cumulative impact on the health and well-being of workers and visitors.

Lorena believes in the empowerment of people everywhere, giving a sense of mission to the cleaning and operation of buildings.  For too long, the cleaning service was a job without a mission.  Price was the only competitive issue.  This has caused a downward spiral of this important aspect of cleaning services. The mission is seen when we remove cleaning, trash removal, and let our circumstances fester.  

At the Green Clean Institute, we believe that cleaning is a core civic duty that should bring cleanliness and health to every city, building and person.


We have three groups of certifications: Individuals and firms, Green Cleaned Building Award, and Green Product certifications.  Thus, we have a third-party process for integrity and professionalism in cleaning and janitorial services.  Each program has reasonable and proper steps to earn a recognized certification.
