It is common culture in busy households to hire professional cleaning services. With a full-time work and home schedule, most people find in quite difficult to set aside time to do even a part of the heavy work.
However, it is not enough to consider just the quality of products and work that a cleaning service provides. The diminishing nature of our climate has prompted the need to be environmentally friendly in every aspect of our lives; including hygiene.
You would think – how could household cleaning possibly have an adverse affect on our environment?
The detergents and solvents used in most cleaning products house-in those chemical agents which do a nice, gleaming job – but infuse the air around you with harsh elements.
These not only get release to the general climate but also linger around the air inhaled by your family, aggravating their health in disastrous ways.
Which proves the point – Green is Glorious – in so many ways.
Air Quality Indoors
Traditional cleaning agents contain added synthetic fragrances for a pleasing finishing aroma. However, these are quite harmful for health in the long run, especially for individuals suffering from respiratory ailments such as asthma.
Green cleaning products may a relatively subtle odor that is almost unnoticeable, which serves the long-lasting benefit of being health-friendly.
Whether playing around on the hardwood floors or lazing around on the carpet on movie nights, your family, especially your children, are exposed to residual chemicals of floor polish and carpet cleaning.
Green cleaners do not leave chemical residues after the solvents are wiped and dried off.
Cut Down VOCs
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are a common element in traditional cleaning products. These lead to serious chronic illnesses such as respiratory ailments, liver and kidney failure, and even cancer.
Green cleaners do not address this issue in a direct manner, but the lack of VOCs in these mean a healthier environment for you to live in.
Packing Green in Green
The incredible thing about green products is that the entire process of creating these is focused on being environmentally friendly. This includes the material they are packed in. Manufacturers cut back on raw materials for sustainability and produce recycled packaging, which is biodegradable.
