Several decades ago, there were news articles about incidents related to carpet cleaning and people’s house. It’s something that people are still concerned about, especially people with young children. So the use of safe carpet cleaning products is important to many people.
It’s important to us too. We use safe carpet cleaning products because for our own health. After all, we are in these soaps or products more than the consumer. Because we are constantly applying them, whereas in your home they are being cleaned out of the carpet. That’s why a truck-mounted steam/hot-water extraction system is the best for carpet cleaning.
Dan has some chemical sensitivities. From childhood, he has had skin allergies to certain laundry detergents. Tide will give him hives. So I try to use the safest laundry detergent I can — I even used soap nuts for awhile! I should write an article about that sometime…
Dan also has had some sensitivities to certain cleaning additives. A common floor cleaning solution contains an orange-based solvent. Though that sounds “natural”, it’s a pretty serious cleaning agent. And if it is used too concentrated, it makes him extremely ill. So remember, just because a product may be labeled “green” or “natural” doesn’t mean it’s safe. After all, arsenic is natural. But I sure don’t want to clean with it.
At Clean Interiors, we want to use cleaning products that are safe for our clients. Not just because it’s the right thing to do. It’s right for us too. We are happy to talk with you about what products we use. Our main cleaner is detergent free, odor less, hypo-allergenic, non-toxic, and biodegradable with no VOCs and no off-gassing. If we need to use a pet deodorization product, and you feel like you have sensitivity to fragrances, we will let you smell it before hand before applying it.
Please email or call us to set up a carpet cleaning appointment.
