Regular Cleaning Products contain harmful chemicals that react with the ozone from the air, creating toxins like formaldehyde. Indoor pollutants can cause headaches, flu-like symptoms, neurological issues and possibly increase the risk of respiratory disease. As per the Environmental Protection Agency.
Using Paper towels kills many trees and creates a lot of garbage. In Canada, we do one of two things with our ordinary garbage, burn it or bury it. Neither one is good for us or for the environment. Burning garbage releases dangerous gases and dust which contribute to global warming and pollute lakes, forests, oceans and cities half a world away from where they originated.
Just with those two points if we all made small changes by the way we clean, we can make a difference in our future for us and our kids. If my business is creating harm to our environment and their is an alternative why not take it? Its only a matter of paying attention and informing ourselves about serious topics that need attention by all of us.
In conclusions the benefits of choosing a cleaning company that offers eco friendly products and practices is choosing a company that cares about the future of all of us, and still providing the very same cleaning service. Some of the practices may include, using a cloth specially for mirrors and glass rather than paper towels. Using reusable gloves, sweeping floors rather than vacuuming. Using Green products, and keeping it simple by using water for dusting out tables.
Keep our world clean and safe!
