Clean Up Your Cleaning Products: Simplify Your Life
It’s tempting to buy a cleaning product for every appliance and room, but did you know that too many cleaning products are actually making your chores harder and more dangerous?
Traditional products are sold on the warning that your bathroom, kitchen and floors will never be bacteria-free or clean enough without a specific cleaning product. In fear, we blindly snatch up the latest sprays, shines and mops afraid that without them our homes will fall prey to the dangerous toxins we’re trying to avoid.
The truth is – and this should come as a relief to the budget conscious among us – that you don’t need dozens of different products and appliances to purify your home of toxins and dirt.
Green cleaning services and products keep the mantra: reduce, reuse, recycle in mind at all times. Instead of paper towels – a product you used to purchase over and over – we use microfiber cloths, which are better for the environment and your wallet. They clean better and are washable so you reduce environmental waste.
Natural cleaning products, such as Ecospirit products, can be used all over the house safely. The Ecospirit line offers four products for every room and surface in your home and office. Four products. That’s all you need. How great will it be to save money on cleaning products during your next shopping trip!
In addition to going farther, natural cleaning products are safer for you and those people around you. Traditional household cleaners contain what the Environmental Protection Agency has termed as Volatile Organic Compounds, or VOCs. VOCs are simply a group of the most hazardous compounds found within these products. They include ammonia, nitrogen, phosphorus, as well as many others. These chemicals are found in abundance in most cleaning product meant to whiten, degrease, and disinfect.
As these cleaning products are rinsed down your drains, flushed down the toilet, or added to your trash pick-up by you or your cleaning company, they find their way into the ground water and the local water supplies such as lakes, rivers, and other waterways. Even when the water passes through your local water treatment facility, chemicals such as phosphorus, nitrogen, and ammonia are not removed like other pollutants. Instead, they remain in the water affecting the health of the local community as well as local plant and animal life.
Ecospirit and other natural cleaning products contain organic, biodegradable ingredients that aren’t harmful to your health or the earth. Ultimately, the decision to clean up your cleaning products is important for your health, as well as the health of the plants, wildlife and people around you.
If the whole thing seems like a little too much effort, we recommend you hire a cleaning service, and ensure they use only healthy cleaning products that will keep your space clean and your health protected. Ready to schedule your free consultation?
