The environment is getting polluted at an alarming rate every day. That is exactly why we need to be more conscious about the products we use – carpet cleaners are also jumping on the eco-friendly bandwagon.
Dangers of toxic chemicals
Carpet cleaners use natural ingredients in their cleaning agents that protect the environment and the species that live there. Commercial agents mixed with water in river basins and oceans block oxygen marine animals need to survive. Water and detergent mixtures create a toxic substance that fish find harmful. Algae are prevented from forming. The lack of algae creates insufficient food supplies for marine animals.
In residential areas, commercial cleaning agents that accidentally combine with drinking water when they enter pipes, cause severe health problems. The problems include poisoning and stomach depletion from a chemical reaction to the body.
What kind of products are companies using?
Products used are highly effective carpet cleaning formulas that work to remove stains and clean deep into the carpet. The non-toxic, environmentally-safe formulas encapsulate dirt and crystallize when dry. The process prevents re-soiling of the treated area by left-over residue. The residue and encapsulated soil are easily vacuumed.
Pet, ink, dairy, and other difficult stains that once required expensive and hazardous spot removers can be removed from upholstery and carpets safely with environmentally friendly products. The equipment includes steam extractors, shampoo machines, and hot and cold water extractor equipment. Hand brushes are sometimes used to apply the solutions.
Professional cleaners are making the transformation in the way carpets are overhauled. State-of-the-art technology, that uses 200ᵒ F water to submerge carpets, is sometimes utilized. The method efficiently removes mites, stains, and dirt as well as the foul odor that prolonged exposure to human perspiration, soil, air, and other foreign material causes.
Using natural cleaning agents reduces the frequency of carpet cleaning. Natural cleaning agents act as disinfectants so your investment is for long-term safety rather than short-time convenience. Promoting a sustainable environment and a healthy household are the reasons behind professional carpet cleaners transitioning to green cleaning products. Customers are offered healthier, safer, and cleaner options. Non-toxic, safe cleaning solutions have a minimal environmental impact and eco-friendly solutions can be used on Oriental rugs and upholstery as well as carpets. So even when you clean carpets and rugs at home, it is imperative to stick to green cleaning products, as it benefits the environment in a big way – it is our duty to protect Mother Nature.
