Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products: Why are they important to us?
Having a clean environment should be important for businesses- Large or Small! Not only can a clean environment help improve safety; it can also help improve productivity, stop the spread of disease and promote a professional looking business. Although your grandparents swore by using baking soda and vinegar, it was still seen as “hippie” to use eco- friendly products. Nowadays, a lot more people are trying to help preserve what is good in the environment.
The main purpose of using eco-friendly cleaning products, in essence, is to keep both the environment and living beings healthy. So it’s time to throw out all of the chemically-based cleaning products and welcome the benefits of using these products:-
Safer to Use
The chemicals used in many cleaning products are harsh. The toxins in these products can cause skin/eye irritation and lead to respiratory issues. However, eco-friendly cleaning products do not contain such harsh chemicals. Green cleaning products include ingredients that are natural and are less likely to aggravate allergies.
Protect Our Planet
Using green products prevents air and water pollution, protecting our environment for the future generation and all living things. We know this at Ideal and this is why we aim to use clean vehicles (see our other blog here) and products in our cleans. We also sell green products from our sister company, BMS Janitorial. If you also want to use environmental products give them a call on: 0115 913 2200.
Leaves a Pleasant Smell
Chemically based cleaning products tend to have a strong smell which can be very overpowering. However, as eco- friendly products use natural ingredients, it will be sure to leave your business with a light and fresh scent. This is Ideal for jobs where we have to be in and out quick leaving just before tenants arrive back. This is a bonus for any cleaning company as in many situations a good clean is when you cant tell there was anyone there (apart from the area being cleaner of course).
Eco-friendly products are NOT tested on animals. Brands such as Method claim to be 100% cruelty free and have never tested ingredients or finished products on animals, nor have ever ordered third parties to conduct animal testing on their behalf. This is on thing that we at Ideal are very much against! We ensure all the products we use will not hurt the environment or animals.
Ensuring a better tomorrow
Eco-friendly products will help us save the environment meaning we can help prevent a future which, as explained in the IPCC report. We know that the use of chemical cleaning products isn’t the biggest issue in this report however it does also effect the environment and just one little change could save the planet in the future and give us more time to try and save this beautiful planet we call home.
