Realizing the impact of your activities on the environment is the first step towards striving for a sustainable future. It is imperative that we play our part in reducing our carbon footprint.
Your carpet needs to be cleaned—granted. But at what cost—the environment? The strong, toxic chemicals that you use to turn your old, dusty carpet to a brand new rug are impacting the environment—with chemicals being washed off into landfills, where it adversely affects marine life.
Contrary to the popular belief, green cleaning is neither expensive nor time-consuming. In fact, it is all the more convenient and economical in the long run.
Using products that are free from toxic chemicals should be your priority. Some cleaning products can harm our environment. That’s why they should be removed from your home, children and pets. Most cleaning products today are safe when used according to the label.
Namely, Formaldehyde, lye and pesticides which even found in traceable amounts have a negative impact. If in any way, they enter your system, they may lead to infertility, hormonal imbalances and problems with the endocrine system.
So, it’s always best to request your service provider uses eco-friendly cleaning products.
Is it true? Harsh toxins in traditional cleaners would leave behind an overwhelming amount of chemical residue in carpets. No when used properly by trained technician.
Infants and toddlers, who roll about on carpets are at a higher risk of contracting certain illnesses that can undermine their immune system.
It becomes all the more important to use zero residue carpet cleaning.
Besides cutting down on solid waste, being environmentally-friendly is all about using the least amount of energy to deliver highly productive results. Fewer chemicals automatically mean lesser processing and lesser burning of fossil fuels too.
Cleaning products that do not give out chemical fumes is exactly what you need to make your place better suited to people with respiratory conditions. This is in even more pressing concern if you are hiring a carpet cleaning service for a hospital.
Carpet cleaning products that are true to their claim of being “green” are completely devoid of heavy metals.
