Green cleaning methods are not only for those who are environmentally conscious. If you have children and pets in the home or are concerned about coming into contact with toxins, green cleaning should be seriously considered. Research has shown that the household cleaners commonly used have a negative effect on your surroundings and environment. If you are unsure whether the cleaning products you use are harmful, simply look at the label and review the various chemicals in the ingredient lists.
The cleaners you use to keep your carpet looking its best should also be reviewed since they could contain harmful ingredients that pose a potential health risk. When you clean your carpets with regular cleaners, you are putting your family in direct contact with dangerous chemicals. Most carpet cleaners give the impression that, once the cleaner has dried, it is safe to walk, sit and lay on the carpet. Unfortunately, this just isn’t true. Formaldehyde, pesticides, disinfectants, acids, lye and fragrances are just a few of the chemical ingredients commonly found in carpet cleaners. And these ingredients are potentially dangerous even when dry. Furthermore, carpets are commonly made with synthetic fibers that are treated with chemicals. These chemicals themselves can threaten the health of your family. Adding extra toxins onto the carpet can compound the chemicals and create an even more dangerous problem. Infants, toddlers, senior citizens, pets and those with health concerns are the ones facing the greatest risks from toxic cleaners.
Choosing a green cleaning company, like Green Choice Carpet Cleaning, is the safest way to ensure your carpet is clean without posing a risk to your health. Green carpet cleaners are non-toxic and won’t cause your carpeting to give off volatile organic compounds, which are noxious fumes. Chemical cleaners often cause unpleasant allergic reactions in both people and pets. Green cleaners, however, rarely if ever cause any unpleasant side effects. Furthermore, organic cleaners don’t pollute your indoor air. This means your indoor air is healthier and you should notice a reduction in symptoms associated with poor air quality such as headaches, fatigues, nausea and allergy or asthma flare-ups.
Another benefit of organic carpet cleaning is that the potential for fungal — such as mold and mildew — growth is reduced. Most green cleaning companies use dry organic cleaners that don’t require moisture. Without moisture, mold spores cannot germinate, grow and spread via spores released into the air. And anyone suffering from allergy and asthma know the damage mold spores can have on your overall health and well-being.
Deciding to use organic green cleaning solutions for your home goes a long way in protecting the environment as well as the health of all who lives in your home.
