We have also completed the final conversion to non phosphate enzyme cleaning for our laundry facility and have began the Lotus Ozone cleaning with water. This process ozones regular tap water for the purpose of disifecting and cleaning rooms on a daily basis. This process has the lowest MSDS rating there is because it only uses water.
We have also completed the switch over to salt water in our pool and spa. This is a salt water clorine generator. It alows us to maintain our pools without the use of any harsh chemicals. It also creates a refreshing experience while swiming in soft water.
We are still working on the process of becomming a Nationaly recongnized Certified Green Hotel. In the meantime we have teamed up with Green Suites International and have a four leaf rating with Green Suites.
