Is Green Carpet Cleaning Effective?
When your customers ask if the cleaning solutions you use are environmentally friendly, and if they work as well as traditional chemicals, what do you tell them?
It’s no secret that chemicals used for cleaning in both the home and professional environment can be destructive to your health. Many professionals use these chemicals to fight tough messes, but with concerns about their own health and the environment, the experts are now transitioning to an alternative method–green cleaning.
One must ask, however, do these environmentally-friendly products work?
Perchloroethylene (more commonly known as perc) and naphthalene are chemicals oftentimes used in carpet cleaning products. Studies done by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control have found these chemicals to cause dizziness, fatigue, and nausea with long-term effects of severe kidney and nerve damage.
Environmentally friendly products are made from plants and vegetables. They are hypoallergenic, non-toxic, fragrance free, and not to mention good for your health! They have been found to typically work as well as traditional solvent and detergent options with no harsh side-effects.
Numerous carpet cleaning professionals are going green, offering green cleaning as part of their general services. With the increasing prevalence of green methods, you will soon find your customers asking what products and chemicals you are bringing into their home. Bring them relief and earn a reputation for effective and eco-friendly carpet cleaning by using natural products such as Orbit-Natural, Orbit-Glow, Oribt-Kleen, and Rug Restore.
These natural, green products work just as well as traditional methods, but they come with the benefit of fewer health risks for your clients and you and also less damage to the environment.
