Building Wellness Institute

The Building Wellness Institute(BWI) was created by Daycon in 2008 to respond to the growing demand for sustainable cleaning procedures. Working closely with the Green Seal organization, BWI assisted more than 50 companies and organizations with completing its comprehensive training program in compliance with the Green Seal 42 Standard(GS42), and/or achieving GS 42 certification.

GS-42 Certification

This Green Seal certification is awarded after meeting the highest standards in commercial, public, and institutional cleaning. Our GS-42 training course was designed to assist building service contractors, universities, and other institutions in their green efforts.

On-Site & Online Support

Daycon provides on-site auditing and online sustainable usage reports to help our partners promote a healthier environment for building occupants. With our custom dashboard, automatically track progress and send reports to LEED AP’s along the way.
