The Importance of Green Cleaning

With the holidays just around the corner, many people use this time of the year to deep clean their spaces for upcoming guests. From carpet cleaners to grout steams, there are millions of chemicals being used throughout the house. This year, call Steam Green to clean your carpets with our certified green cleaning products and see the difference.

There’s been a lot of buzz surrounding green cleaning in recent years, with many companies claiming they are “going green.” And let’s face it: when most people hear the words “all-natural,” “organic” and “green” they simply translate that to “better for the environment.”Yes, yes and yes. In its simplest terms, green cleaning means using cleaning products and methods that are safer for human and environmental health.

Warning! Flammable! Toxic! With labels like these on some conventional carpet cleaning products, you get a pretty good idea that they aren’t really that safe. Many chemicals (e.g., chlorine and ammonia), when mixed together, can be downright dangerous.

Small children and pets are especially vulnerable due to higher exposure levels because of their size. Plus, household cleaning supplies are one of the top five substance classes accounting for calls to the National Poison Control Center according to its 2010 annual report. So, minimize your risk with green cleaning products that aren't toxic or as dangerous.

We use only Green Seal certified and Designed for the Environment EPA certified products that are safe for humans and pets. Our cleaning solutions are highly effective and provide a long lasting clean. The products we use are derived from organic ingredients such as citrus peel, lime extract, grapefruit seed extract, and natural enzymes and are certified by a third party to meet today’s green standards such as Green Seal or Designed for the Environment EPA logos. Most customers are pleasantly surprised at the huge difference in the look and feel of their carpets.

Did you know that the use of conventional cleaning products can contribute to higher pollution indoors than outdoors? Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which have been associated with a host of health problems like damage to the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system, are released when products are used and stored and can also linger in the air long after use. If you have ever gone to use a regular cleaner and recognize the strong scent, it is most likely the smell of a chemical coming through and into the air. This can be dangerous for all those in the home. By changing to a green cleaning product and using Steam Green to come clean your carpets homeowners can protect the health of all those inside the home from harmful chemicals.

Your home and the people in it deserve to be cared for in the best manner possible. In order to achieve this, there must be some kind of standard set to help make sure the products being used are healthy and green. At Steam Green, we are dedicated to using the best and safest products possible for our customers. You can benefit every time we step into your home.
