At Home Cleanology, we believe that we have a responsibility to take care of our environment. To effectively do this, we employ eco-friendly cleaning services and products to minimize our carbon footprint. While we make great efforts to do this, there are a few things that we do that are different from what you’ll find with other companies. Read our guide below to learn what makes eco-friendly cleaning different from traditional methods.
The impact that cleaning services have on the environment goes beyond the products and supplies that we use to make your home shine. Transportation is required to get to and from appointments. While we could drive around town to get to where we need to be, our team makes it a point to travel efficiently to each appointment. This means that we make sure our crews leave with all their essential equipment for the day to prevent trips back and forth to reload. It also means taking the most efficient route to every appointment. We want to minimize our carbon footprint and reducing the amount of fuel our vehicles use is one way we can.
There’s a ton of waste involved with cleaning. Whether you’re doing it on your own at your house or hiring a cleaning service, there are rags, bottles, and cleaning tools that are thrown out and replaced regularly. One way that we try to minimize our waste is by reusing bottles and rags as often as we can. This makes it so that we’re not taking large loads of trash to the dump or even trying to recycle plastic bottles that might not be recyclable. Eco-friendly cleaning services will take into account the amount of waste that’s produced and find ways to reduce it as much as possible.
No artificial fragrances
While not all chemicals that are used in cleaning are harmful to the environment, some artificial fragrances can be. These scents can be harmful to the ozone layer as well as animals that might ingest them as they absorb into the dirt and groundwater. Furthermore, they can be irritants to those who are sensitive to smells or have allergies. Many eco-friendly cleaning products don’t use artificial fragrances and are better for your home and the environment.
Won’t harm the environment
Along this same vein, harsh cleaning chemicals that are disposed of improperly can disrupt the environment around your home or other areas. Did you know that antibacterial cleaning solutions that are poured down your drain can kill the bacteria that help to maintain your septic system? What’s more, these solutions can flow downstream to water treatment plants and disturb the bacterial balance that’s needed to properly treat water for the community.
Keep in mind that being eco-friendly does not mean that cleaning solutions are without chemicals. This simply means that the chemicals used are safe for the environment. By using eco-friendly chemicals, you can still get the same standard of cleanliness without the negative impact of other chemicals.
