You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your health and safety to achieve a clean environment. Learn why many homeowners and business owners alike have made the switch to green cleaning.
Green cleaning is an eco-friendly alternative to standard cleaning services. Since green cleaning only uses natural products free of harsh chemicals, it’s tough on germs but easy on the environment. Cleaning products filled with harsh chemicals certainly eliminate dust and bacteria, but at what cost? Our health and the environment suffer from the use of these dangerous products.
Green cleaning helps you to breathe easier with guilt-free results. Whether you’re looking to implement green cleaning services at home or at the office, learn why this is the safest option for yourself, others, and the environment.
During these unprecedented times, many are taking more careful consideration of their health and safety. It’s true that airborne bacteria, allergens, and viruses are carried from surface to surface, and, eventually, from person to person.
This contamination leads to sickness and disease, but we must be careful about how we choose to kill germs. Green cleaning is your best bet in the fight against illness. The use of traditional cleaning products to reduce your chances of getting sick will actually increase your chances due to the harmful chemicals they contain.
Green cleaning contains no harmful chemicals and works just as well as regular cleaning services. With green cleaning, you enjoy the best of both worlds: a sparkling establishment with little to no impact on the environment.
Green cleaning products have the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) stamp of approval, which is their EPA Safer Choice label. Only the products that meet the EPA’s strict human health and environmental criteria may carry the Safer Choice label.
There are several benefits of green cleaning, whether you do it yourself at home or invest in professional services for your place of business. This alternative to regular cleaning is:
Green cleaners are much safer than traditional cleaning products. Releasing harmful chemicals into the air is not only bad for the environment, but it’s also unsafe for your respiratory system and skin. Many cleaning products contain ammonia, which sometimes causes asthma flare-ups and skin irritation.
Unlike toxic cleaning products, natural ingredients don’t taint indoor air quality. The preexisting volatile organic compounds (VOCs) already flowing through the air are out of our control, but using harmful cleaning chemicals releases more of these impurities into the atmosphere, making matters worse.
When you invest in eco-friendly cleaning services, there’s no additional air pollution created. The EPA lists phosphorus, nitrogen, and ammonia as the worst environmental hazards in household cleaners. These pollutants are so harmful, some legislations have restricted the amount allowed in commonly used products or even banned them completely. California’s Air Resources Board outlines acceptable limits in its product regulations guide.
All the chemicals and harsh ingredients in regular cleaners aren’t cheap, and these expenses accumulate over time. You end up spending more money on various cleaning products required for different surfaces. Big-name brands that contain bleach, for example, are not only more expensive, but they also aren’t ideal for most surfaces.
Most environmentally friendly products are multipurpose or general cleaning solutions. That means you don’t have to worry about spending extra money on different products for every area in your building.
