Health Benefits of Eco Cleaning

Cleaning is critical to maintaining the health and the presentation of your home. In our busy world where instant gratification reigns supreme, it’s natural to gravitate towards cleaning products that promise fast, easy cleaning without ever stopping to think about what exactly we’re bringing into our spaces. Unfortunately, many off-the-shelf cleaning products contain harsh chemicals that can potentially harm you, your family, pets, and the environment.

If you don't want cleaning products that contain potentially harmful chemicals, we have the answer - eco-cleaning. There are many benefits of eco-cleaning, also known as eco-friendly cleaning. Here are several reasons why our eco-friendly cleaning might be a great option for your home:

1) Take the Guesswork Out of Cleaning

You can spend all day researching eco-friendly cleaning tips. However, for the best results, call the professionals at your local Molly Maid. An eco-cleaning service like Molly Maid combines the latest and greatest eco-friendly products with our proven best practices to keep your home looking and feeling fresh. It’s a great way to save valuable time for other things that need your attention. Our team is highly trained and well-versed in the best cleaning methods and products to use in your home.

There are a variety of eco-friendly cleaning products to choose from, and with so many options, finding the right ones can be a challenge.

We’ll handle it all, leaving your space refreshed, looking, and smelling cleaner than ever.
 

2) Improve Air Quality

A professional eco-friendly cleaning service can also help you and your loved ones breathe a little easier. Damaging chemicals found in standard cleaning products can be harsh on the lungs. If you or someone in your family has allergies or asthma, the health benefits of eco-friendly cleaning methods can’t be understated.

Many people don’t realize that the most popular cleansers and cleaning supplies often send harmful chemicals into the air. While opening the windows and circulating fresh air through the space can help, those with allergies and asthma may still struggle to breathe freely. One of the main benefits of eco-cleaning is eliminating such irritants altogether.
 

3) Better Transparency of Ingredients

One of the main benefits of an eco-cleaning service like ours is that we bring safe and eco-friendly cleansers to each job. Rather than spending time researching which products are right for your home, you can trust our professionals to come equipped with cleaning products and techniques that don’t expose you, your family, or pets to harmful chemicals.. All of this saves you time, money, and serious stress.

Eco-friendly brands also tend to be honest about the ingredients they use in their formulas. See our Green Cleaning Services page for insight into the cleansers we use at Molly Maid.

4) Minimize the Risk of Accidental Ingestion

One of the main benefits of eco-cleaning is that the products tend to be safer around children and pets. So, if you’re anxious about little ones accidentally ingesting harmful chemicals or your pets getting into your cleaning supplies, eco-friendly products, and Molly Maid are the solution. Since most green cleansers are plant-based, dangerous chemicals like nitrates, chlorine, and phosphates are eliminated. Making them safer to use and less harmful to the environment.

Since we bring eco-friendly cleansers to each job, monitor their impact, and bring them back with us when the job is complete, the amount of harmful chemicals in your home is greatly reduced. This means you don’t have to worry about bleach or other harmful chemicals being within easy reach of little ones. Instead, you can relax, knowing that potentially dangerous cleansers have been removed from your home.

5) Reduce Your Environmental Impact

Another one of the many benefits of eco-cleaning products is the environmental impact—or lack thereof. When harsh household cleansers go down the drain, they contribute to smog and even impact the quality of our drinking water. On the other hand, eco-cleaning products don’t contain dangerous chemicals, so you can rinse them down the drain without negatively impacting the environment.

Living up to your expectations for reducing your environmental impact can be challenging. From recycling aluminum cans to swapping plastic straws out for paper ones, it seems there’s always something more you could do for the planet. Our eco-cleaning service allows you to promote a healthier environment without lifting a finger. If only more eco-friendly efforts were this easy!

6) Improved Cleanser Performance

Many people assume natural cleaning products aren’t as effective as chemical-laden alternatives. In fact, one of the most significant benefits of eco-friendly home cleaning is how effective these natural products are at killing germs and bacteria. In many ways, they outperform the harsh chemicals found in average household cleansers. So whether you’re cleaning up before a big move, cleaning an apartment, or simply wanting to refresh your space, eco cleaning is a great way to go.

7) Safer Antibacterials

A lot of people favor cleaning products labeled “antibacterial.” Many assume they’re the most effective at preventing the spread of germs. The reality is that these kinds of products include chemicals linked to hormone disruptions, allergies, breathing issues, and skin irritation. Another concern is these products have also been shown to contribute to bacterial resistance to antibiotics. In contrast, green cleaning products rely on natural ingredients with inherent antibacterial properties. Lemongrass, eucalyptus, and tea tree offer a less harsh way to remove dirt and grime, and they all smell fantastic!
