Green cleaning seems to be the future of the cleaning industry. Currently, this trade is in the top 3 polluters of the environment because of the chemicals used to treat a variety of surfaces. However, many forward-thinking companies have adopted alternative methods and products to help the preservation of nature. Some of these green solutions are incredibly effective.
What are the benefits of using eco-friendly products and solutions
The most obvious reason for choosing your home to be treated with green products is playing your part in saving the environment. However, there is so much more. Those products and methods have a positive impact on human and pet health. Not to mention, it could be the only option for people with allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems. Additionally, eco cleaning is gentle on fabrics and other types of surfaces, which could otherwise be easily damaged by chemicals.
What are the downfalls of using green solutions
Unfortunately, not every stain known to professional cleaners can be removed with a green solution yet. As science progresses, we hope to see this changed in the future, but for now the use of certain chemicals in some cases is inevitable.
What green solutions are there and how effective are they
Professional cleaners have access to eco-friendly products that are not available on the wider market and for general public use. They are almost as effective as the popular cleaning solutions you can get from the shelf. Those products are mostly used in households where there are known allergies or sensitive skin conditions.
Steam cleaning is a great and extremely efficient natural solution. Not only it removes stains, but also successfully disinfects by eliminating various bacteria and viruses. Presently, there is special steam cleaning equipment which speeds up the process and leaves no dampness after the treatment. This is particularly useful for carpet and upholstery cleaning, because other methods require drying time, in some cases up to 2 hours. The steam can be combined with an eco-friendly non-toxic cleaning product to enhance the end effect. What’s best is that this method can be used on all surfaces.
Some keen home cleaners prefer to make their own cleaning products by using natural household items. The most common ones are baking soda, vinegar, lemon juice and essential oils. While those solutions can remove some stains and have certain disinfecting properties, they are not as effective as professional cleaning products, both green and those based on chemicals.
We, at MiraKal cleaning services, have options for our clients. We offer treatment with the standard strong chemical solutions, as well as effective eco-friendly alternatives. Bear in mind that unfortunately, not all scenarios will allow us to achieve top results with green products. In some instances we will just have to use something stronger, but we will always advise you before we take any steps and follow your preferences.
