What Is ‘Green’ Cleaning?
Green cleaning is a term that describes a growing trend in favor of using cleaning methods with environmentally-friendly ingredients to preserve human health and environmental quality. Green cleaning products avoid the use of chemically-reactive and toxic cleaning products which contain chemicals, some of which emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) causing respiratory and dermatological problems in some individuals. Be Green Clean uses only natural cleaning products while working in your home. We want you to feel as good as we do about reducing our environmental footprint on the planet, and we exhibit that belief in every cleaning we do. Be Green Clean only uses cleaning products that are eco-friendly, meaning they are non-toxic, biodegradable, and contain no damaging ingredients like alcohol or ammonia. Our goal is to create a clean environment in your home that is safe for you, your children, and your pets. We believe in the Power of Green and know that once we finish cleaning your home, you will too.
TOP 5 REASONS YOUR HOME NEEDS TO
BE . GREEN . CLEAN
1. Improves indoor air quality. The Environmental Protection Agency states that the air inside our home is typically two to five times more polluted than the air outside. Cleaning agents are one of the biggest contributors to indoor air pollution. Using green cleaning products is one of the easiest ways to improve indoor air quality.
2. Carcinogen free. Many popular, conventional cleaning products — like all-purpose cleaners, dishwashing liquids and furniture polish — contain known and suspected cancer causers. All of our products are free of Volatile Organic Compounds and suspected carcinogens. Green cleaning helps to reduce the deadly chemical cocktail building up in our bodies.
3. Water safe, fish approved. Toxic chemicals that are flushed down the drain eventually end up in our streams, rivers and oceans, polluting our drinking water and choking the wildlife. You may not want to, but you could drink the products Organic Housekeepers chooses to clean with.
4.Healthier for our employees. Cleaners who are exposed to harsh chemicals end up having big health problems, including neurological and respiratory issues.
5. Disinfects without causing the super-bug. Vegetable-based soap and vinegar kill germs just as effectively as harsh toxins. But soap and vinegar disinfect without breeding the super-bug.
