Eco-Friendly Carpet Cleaning
Eco-friendly carpet cleaningFor many of us, carpet is still the best choice of flooring, may be because of its superior insulation, its softness or it’s “look”. But Carpet acts like a giant filter which catches and collects all types of indoor air pollutants. Carpet tends to trap dust, soil and debris, particularly anything tracked in from outside on the soles of shoes and the paws of our pets. It can also be a host of allergens like pet dander and hair, fungal spores, bacteria, dust-mite droppings and toxic particles from the carpet fibers themselves. To deal with all this embedded dirt, a deep professional clean is often recommended.
Traditionally, commercial carpet cleaners use lots of chemicals in their cleaning solutions, producing a powerful combination of toxic agents to deal with the stains and ingrained dirt in carpets. Carpet cleaning chemicals can also contaminate local groundwater if disposed of improperly (such as directly down your drain). These contaminants this way ultimately pollute and poison the entire neighboring environment and its inhabiting species. These cleaning products are not only harmful for the environment, but they can also be bad for our own health too. For example, one chemical in traditional cleaning solutions is perchloroethylene (“perc”) which can cause nausea, dizziness and fatigue when inhaled, in addition to this it is potentially linked to kidney and liver damage. In the same way, solvent naphthalene, used frequently in traditional carpet cleaning is assumed to be toxic to the human central nervous system and even to be a probable carcinogen!
These chemicals get into the air of a room while applied during cleaning and can also be ingested by kids who play on the floor soon afterwards. But the best part is that we have an option to keep our carpets clean while taking care of our own health and also the health of our environment. So we are now approaching for more eco-friendly methods of carpet cleaning.
Thanks to growing awareness concerning the possible health impacts of carpet cleaning, a new class of professional services has sprung up that avoids hazardous and polluting chemicals and promote the use of more natural methods of cleaning, with more natural products. They have shown that it is feasible to produce as high a standard of cleaning as traditional methods while using powerful water extraction equipment combined with 100% biodegradable, plant-based cleaning agents which are non-toxic and harmless for the environment.
Eco-Friendly Carpet Cleaning services use plant-based cleaning products which contain enzymes, fatty acids, alcohols, esters, chelators and saponifiers derived from things like palm kernel, soy, peanut, corn, sunflower and canola. Eco-Friendly Carpet cleaning process produce very little waste water and what is produced can be filtered to remove particles and used to water gardens. Above all eco-friendly cleaning chemicals are safer for children and pets too, yet still do a great job. So don’t replace your old carpet, get it cleaned. Cleaning your carpet produces less than 1% of the CO2 released from the manufacture of a new carpet.
