Coverall has been recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a "Champion" under the agency's Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative (SDSI). Champion is the highest level of recognition under this initiative and Coverall is the only cleaning company to be recognized. The SDSI is part of the EPA’s Design for the Environment program, which works in partnership with a broad range of stakeholders to reduce risk to people and the environment by preventing pollution. The program focuses on industries that combine the potential for chemical risk reduction and improvements in energy efficiency with a strong motivation to make lasting, positive changes. The SDSI was designed to recognize environmental leaders who voluntarily commit to the use of safer surfactants that break down quickly to non-polluting compounds.

The Harvard Business Review reports that sick employees cost American businesses over $150 billion a year in lost productivity. Illness-causing germs (such as influenza, H1N1, MRSA and the common cold) work their way through offices, schools, gyms and daycares. Our Franchise Owners use the Coverall Health-Based Cleaning System Program - which includes EPA-registered, hospital-grade disinfectant chemistry proven to eradicate disease-causing germs, as well as innovative cleaning equipment and methods - to remove illness-causing germs and reduce cross-contamination and the spread of infection.
