The “Green” movement has reached industries of all types, and carpet cleaning is no exception! Eco-friendly products are not only better for the environment, they’re also better for you. Wondering if eco-friendly cleaning products are right for you and your carpets? Here are the top reasons why you should be using them – or finding a company that does.
They’re Better For Your Health
Carpets are obviously a huge part of your home or office, so when it comes to cleaning them we’re not just talking about a spray here or a spritz there. When using so much cleaning product, those with harsh chemicals can be harmful to your health.
One common carpet cleaner component is Perchloroethylene which can be found in dry carpet cleaning products and can cause fatigue, dizziness and nausea when inhaled. Another common chemical found in carpet cleaner is Naphthalene, which is considered to be dangerous to the central nervous system and is also potentially carcinogenic.
When you consider how much time you spend in close proximity to carpets either at work, or home, using safe cleaning products can mean a lot. At home, pets and kids in particular will be in close contact with carpets, so you want to make sure that anything going on them is safe.
They’re Better For Your Home
When it comes to fighting dirt and treating stains, you do not need harsh chemicals. Eco-friendly cleaning products perform just as well, or even better in some cases, than their chemical counterparts. Here at Pure Carpet Cleaners, we use natural, citrus products as degreasers. This solution is biodegradable, residue free and totally safe for your family and pets. An added bonus? It only has a two hour dry time! We’ll even provide you with a free bottle of our special citrus based spot cleaner at the end of your cleaning so you can easily maintain your carpets, rugs or upholstery until the next time.
They’re Better For the Environment
Non-green chemicals can negatively impact the environment. From the production and development to the after-effects and air pollutants that they can leave behind, these products aren’t doing Mother Nature any favors. In contrast, eco-friendly cleaners are a lot safer for the environment, can help reduce pollution and can even help reduce waste through recyclable packaging.
When it comes down to it, the whole point of cleaning your carpets, rugs and upholstery is to improve your home! Make sure the company you hire will really do this through the use of green products.
