Happy Maids Green Cleaning’s Commitment to Green Cleaning
Happy Maids Green Cleaning in Northern Virginia has gone fully green with its cleaning products. We use a hydrogen peroxide-based cleaner which has been used for at least a century.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), hydrogen peroxide kills yeasts, fungi, bacteria, viruses, and mold spores and it also leaves your home smelling like citrus.
The Benefits of Eco-Friendly Cleaning
A Healthier Home
The main issue of harsher chemicals used in cleaners is that they can irritate and absorb into your skin. The chemicals in most cleaning supplies and household products can irritate the eyes, cause headaches, inundate nausea, and in rare cases, cancer.
Some products release dangerous chemicals, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Other harmful ingredients include ammonia and bleach.
Using green cleaning products can reduce the chances of developing asthma, irritation of the skin, and more.
Strictly Regulated Products
Eco-friendly cleaning products are non-toxic and do not cause chemical burns to the skin or eyes. They also meet strict standards regarding inhalation toxicity, burning, and absorbency in the skin.
A More Hygienic Environment
When you use many cleaning products, gases are created from combined solutions that could cause damage to the nervous system, eyes, lungs, skin, liver, and kidneys.
When you use green cleaning methods, you help prevent pollution of our waterways and air, reduce ozone depletion and help to decrease global climate change. In addition, eco-friendly cleaning products are also usually sold in recyclable bottles.
Improved Air Quality
Harsh chemicals like those used in traditional cleaning products can constrict people’s airways, causing the development of asthma. Whereas, green cleaning products use a hydrogen peroxide-based cleaner that readily decomposes into oxygen and water, making it a lower health risk than other noxious cleaning agents.
