Green Cleaning

Going green is not just a trend, it's a global effort to create a healthy and stable environment. Green practices are being adopted everywhere by people and businesses in just about every industry. In the cleaning industry specifically, new technologies and products are changing the way we clean.  Up until just a few years ago, cleaning products were not biodegradable or made from all natural ingredients. Traditional cleaning products often contained harmful ingredients such as bioaccumulative and toxic chemicals (PBTs), which cause a variety of human health problems (such as respiratory ailments, cancer, reproductive disorders, skin and eye irritation, central nervous system impairment etc), and even trigger ecological concerns. They may also contribute to poor indoor air quality that affects human health adversely. Now many new cleaning products are affordable, efficient, and are environmentally friendly. While industrial cleaners are still made from chemicals, they are biodegradable and will be safely degraded overtime by factors of the environment.

Advancements in technology have also contributed to green cleaning. For example, the microfiber cloth has become a versatile and highly efficient cleaning tool and unlike paper towels that contribute to paper waste, the microfiber cloth is reusable. Vacuums have also become more environmentally friendly with the use of HEPA filters which trap everything from dust to chemical particles and prevent them from being released into the air. Overall the trend we are seeing is that as technology improves, products are becoming more environmentally friendly and efficient.

Whether you are looking for business office cleaning services or need professionals to clean your home, opting for green cleaning methodology would be a great way to enjoy a clean environment without putting your health at risk.  Hiring commercial cleaning services that use
green cleaning products and practices would also help you to play your part in protecting the environment.
