As people understand why it’s so important to use “green” cleaning products and services, (healthier for people, healthier for the environment)…we see more green cleaning brands coming on the market. We also see a lot of cleaning services marketing themselves as “non-toxic” and “green” but many times, they do not know much about what they so confidently affirm.
A great website to check the green cleaning products is: https://www.ewg.org/ That is the environmental working group and gives great information on how to check the green cleaning products.
When you are looking for a cleaning service, be sure to look at their track record for integrity. That will help you in choosing the best service. After all, we have to have great integrity and be incredibly trustworthy to be able to enter peoples’ homes.
If you ever want to do green cleaning yourself, you can always use white distilled vinegar and baking soda.
- 17,000: amount of petrochemicals available for home use, only 30 percent of which have been tested for exposure to human health and the environment.
- 63: the number of synthetic chemical products found in the average American home, (approximately 10 gallons of harmful chemicals)
- 100: the number of times higher that indoor air pollution levels can be above outdoor air pollution levels, according to US EPA estimates.
- 275: the number of active ingredients in antimicrobials that the EPA classifies as pesticides because they are designed to kill microbes.
- 5 billion: the number of pounds of chemicals that the institutional cleaning industry uses each year.
- 23: the average gallons of chemicals (that’s 87 liters) that a janitor uses each year, 25 percent of which are hazardous.
When you go with a cleaning service that says they are green or using green cleaning products, be sure to find out what cleaning products they are using and check the website above to measure the quality of products they are using. It’s worth it to take the couple minutes to research for your own health and peace of mind.
