3 Proven Reasons to Switch to Green Carpet Cleaning

Have you thought about switching to green carpet cleaning for your home? Discover three proven reasons why it’s better than conventional cleaning. Because you deserve a cleaner and safer way to get your carpets looking great again.

What is Green Cleaning?

Green cleaning means the use of cleaning products and services that have a lesser or reduced impact on human health and the environment when compared with traditional products (ISSA, 2021). Green cleaning products typically have the following characteristics:

  • Contain no additives or harmful chemicals like chlorine, artificial fragrances, and phosphates.

  • Biodegradable or recyclable packaging.

  • Organically grown ingredients using sustainable farming practices.

Why Should You Use Green Cleaning Products?

1. Safer for You and Your Family

Some of the most dangerous toxins reside in our cleaning products. For example, researchers at the University of Washington tested a variety of popular household cleaning products. What they found was that close to half generated at least 1 of 24 carcinogenic hazardous air pollutants including formaldehyde and methylene chloride.

These hazardous air pollutants have no safe exposure level, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Likewise, many traditional carpet cleaners use harsh chemicals that may cause skin irritation to people and pets. In addition, lingering fumes can lead to headaches, dizziness and respiratory ailments.

By choosing green cleaning services and products you can avoid these toxins while having a clean home that is safe for you and your family. It's especially important to use non-toxic cleaners on your carpet to rid your home of pollutants that get trapped in your carpet fibers.

2. Better for Your Carpet

This may surprise you, but the soaps and solvents used in traditional carpet cleaning methods are actually difficult to remove from carpet fibers. Even after repeated rinses a sticky residue will remain in the carpet. This residue actually attracts dirt, causing your carpet to re-soil prematurely. So your carpets actually do get dirty again faster when traditional soaps and shampoos are used.

On the other hand, EcoZyme solutions use plant based enzymes and nanotechnology to capture dirt in a micro-encapsulated fashion. Allergens and dirt are extracted from the carpet while restoring the natural knap of the carpet. There is no sticky residue left behind to attract dirt, so your carpet will feel soft and stay clean longer.

3. Better for the Environment

The harsh chemicals contained in most traditional cleaning products will result in air pollution and lasting damage to the environment. Since the products used in green cleaning are non-toxic and biodegradable, the process will not involve the release of harmful solutions and harmful chemicals into the environment.
