For many homeowners, the environmental impact of their cleaning products is an important issue to them. Therefore, green cleaning products have quickly become an important part of the cleaning industry, and a wide range of brands have emerged touting their environmentally-friendly benefits. However, not all of these products are as green as they may claim to be.
One common problem with some supposedly green cleaners is their use of chemical ingredients in order to create a more appealing fragrance for the product. Unfortunately, the ingredients used to create these fragrances can often be almost as harmful to the environment as traditional cleaners. Another common problem is that many green cleaners, while ostensibly safe when used to clean surfaces such as hardwood or tile floors, can be extremely damaging to the environment if they get into water streams, which is often a possibility when these cleaners are used to wipe up bathrooms and kitchen appliances.
There are a number of options out there to help determine whether your green cleaning products are as environmentally safe as they could be. Additionally, green cleaning services, such as those offered by WOW Total Cleaning, are certified to be environmentally friendly.
