As society focuses more on the effects that our behavior has on the environment, a thriving industry has bloomed. This involves products that focus on being “green” and eco-friendly. Overall, these products better for the environment, our pets, and our families. Naturally, how our behaviors impact the environment has become a hot topic. We’ve gone from simply asking the question, “paper or plastic?” to asking which products we use should in our day-to-day activities.

When it comes to cleaning tile and grout or shampooing rugs, carpet and upholstery, it should come as no surprise that you should consider using eco-friendly products. In fact, it should be your top priority! There are many reasons why choosing eco-friendly products for deep household cleaning tasks is worthy of consideration. Naturally, this is especially relevant for those done on a regular basis.

Chemical-Heavy Products Can Be Extremely Harmful

Perchloroethylene is a chemical used in many dry carpet cleaning products. It is commonly referred to as “perc” for short. Perc causes fatigue, dizziness, and nausea if inhaled. Additionally, it can be potentially fatal if ingested. Shockingly, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has also linked the chemical to nerve and kidney damage.

Normally, one would assume chemicals like these would be banned from use. However, the reality is that they are still commonly used to this day. Unfortunately, many professional carpet cleaning companies maintain their use in your household. The negative effects of using dangerous products like Perc are especially troubling for babies, children, and pets. Consequently, anyone or anything that comes in intimate contact with your carpets, tile, and floors is at risk.

In addition, another commonly-used cleaning chemical called Naphthalene can also potentially damage your nervous system. Naphthalene is an organic solvent that is formulated using coal tar. It’s important to note that even if you don’t inhale these chemicals in large quantities, just having them present in your carpet, rugs, and upholstery means you’re unwillingly breathing them in. Consequently, consistent exposure can lead to negative effects down the road.

Failing to seek out non-toxic, eco-friendly cleaning products can land you in a potentially dangerous situation. Naturally, this will needlessly expose the ones you love to preventable hazards. At New Sunrise Cleaning & Restoration, we proudly use eco-friendly, pet-safe products to get the job done right and to keep your home and family safe from harm.

Green Cleaning Supplies Have Limited Impact on the Environment

The development of these non-green chemicals also has a negative impact on the environment. This includes the chemical’s production process, as creating them hurts the environment. Additionally, when these chemicals are released into the air, they become harmful to plants, animals, people, water and air quality.

Additionally, large scale industrial accidents are less of an issue when they do occur if and when the products are non-toxic and eco-friendly. Spilling a gallon of eco-friendly carpet cleaner into the dirt, while not advised, is far less harmful then spilling cleaners containing Perchloroethylene or Naphthalene.

Eco-Friendly Products Work Just As Good

Some companies will try to argue that harmful chemicals are needed to get a deep clean. when it comes to treating stains and tackling the dirt deep in your carpet and under padding. The truth is that this is not at all the reality. There is no benefit to choosing carpet cleaners that use harmful chemicals over ones that use eco-friendly alternatives.

In many tests, eco-friendly carpet cleaners perform just as well or better than those containing dangerous chemicals. However, if there is no benefit in using these products, why do some carpet cleaning companies still choose to use them when shampooing or deep cleaning carpets and upholstery for their customers? Is there really no benefit at all?

The only benefit comes not to the consumer, but to the company utilizing these dangerous products. Companies often fail to take precautions when manufacturing chemicals. This makes harmful chemicals much cheaper to produce than “green” alternatives. In other words, a carpet cleaning company trying to sell you on cleaning products that are not eco-friendly is simply trying to give you a cheaper carpet cleaning that is potentially dangerous to you while saving themselves money! This is one of those instances where you really do get what you pay for.

When it comes to making the decision between green, eco-friendly cleaning products for your carpet cleaning and chemical-heavy alternatives, there really is nothing to question. When it comes to the safety of your pets and family, choose the safer, healthier, environmentally friendly cleaning products and methods used by us at New Sunrise Cleaning & Restoration.
