Spring arrived late this year, so if you’re like me, you’re probably still very much in spring cleaning mode. Now is the perfect time to really scrub beneath the obvious surfaces of your home and clear out the dust, grime, and other remnants of the cold winter months we’re now finally free from. This of course also includes giving your carpets a proper deep cleaning.
Everyone in the family gets up close and personal with the carpets in your home, especially small children and family pets. We all want our carpets to be clean and look great, but most traditional carpet cleaners on the market today contain a laundry list of harsh chemicals. In fact, in the past decade alone, recalls have been issued by the EPA of well-known and widely-used carpet cleaning products, such as Teflon Carpet Protectant, which has contained PFOA, a chemical that is linked to being a cause of cancer, liver damage, and even birth defects. After being used in homes and businesses for more than 50 years, Scotch guard was reformulated in 2003 after a recall, but even the new chemical make-up is labelled as a Persistent Organic Pollutant, which has the capacity to cause various health problems and disorders.
Those are some scary facts, and it’s really no wonder why many people are moving away from abrasive and harmful chemicals and embracing green, natural carpet cleaning for their homes.
Green carpet cleaning has many benefits. Obviously, first and foremost, you will not be subjecting yourself or your family members to chemicals that have been known to cause headaches, allergies, nausea, fatigue, coughing, or other unpleasant, and in some cases, hazardous side effects. Instead, green cleaning solutions are created by using the highest quality natural ingredients, many of which are actually found in the foods we eat; ingredients like citric acid, common table salt, antimicrobial salts, and natural live enzyme cultures.
Green cleaning solutions aren’t just healthier options for families and businesses, they are also better for the environment. It sometimes slips our minds, but everything that we use in our homes eventually makes its way into our water supply. That is where we definitely don’t want all of those harsh chemicals found in traditional carpet cleaners.
