Did you/your program ever check to see how people are improperly using chemicals and pesticides available from the Home Depot or Ace Hardware or other similar stores next door which are affecting their health adversely. Just token checks on that may help you to take the second step to this great DfE program.

There are alternatives to harsh chemicals and the hazards they cause for both homeowners and technicians. I feel it is the responsibility of business owners to do all that they can to run their business as green as possible. Doing so may cause extra expense, but the benefits to people and the earth will be worth it in the long run.

I suppose that the safer chemical based product are fresh air and clean water only. For medical treatment of lung congestion and chronic bronchitis and especially bronchial asthma are homoeopathy.
