You hear all about people deciding that they want to ‘go green’. Did you know that there are more than one way to go green? Green cleaning is a great way to start. Most people think that green cleaning is going to break their bank, but honestly it can be just as affordable as standard cleaning. It can actually save you money in the long run.
Environmentally friendly cleaning products are not only made with sustainable, renewable resources, but they are also biodegradable and non-toxic, making them safe for your children and pets. There are also a lot of other reasons that you should switch to green cleaning products. Here are just a few.
Every day, a multitude of chemicals are being released into our environment. While we can’t stop all of these pollutants, we can each take a few steps in the right direction to help make the planet a better place. Not only are the chemicals safer for the environment, but they also offer better indoor air quality in your home.
Traditional cleaning agents are actually made completely different from eco-friendly products. Since green cleaning products are made with sustainable resources, they tend to last longer. This helps the effects to last longer as well. Harsh chemicals are also more harmful for your furniture and other household belongings, so switching to green cleaning products help to save your things and make them last longer.
Most traditional cleaning products have a certain pungent smell to them, but green cleaning products are not made with those harsh chemicals that come along with those smells. Environmentally friendly products are a lot easier on your sense of smell, that’s for sure!
If you have children and pets in your home, then safety is likely your top priority. Green cleaning products are really a lot safer. Children and pets often respond negatively to harmful chemicals and fumes. This can be a big health risk for them. Keep your children and pets safer by only using green cleaning products.
As you can see, green cleaning is definitely very beneficial in many ways. Whether you want to do it solely for safety, or you want to do everything you can to better the planet, let us help you with your green cleaning needs!

This day and age, so many people are opting to have carpet-free homes, but the feel of carpet under your feet tends to be a lot more comfortable than hard flooring. For this reason, there are still a lot of people out there that have carpet in their homes. Did you know that carpet actually harbors dirt and bacteria? Having your carpets professionally cleaned is not only great for your carpet, but it can be great for your health as well.
We have all seen those infomercials that show all of the grime that comes out of carpets when they are cleaned. Even if you think that your carpets look clean, vacuuming is not always enough to keep them truly clean. With foot traffic, pets, children and just your average wear and tear, carpets can start to look dingy as well. The best thing you can do to spruce up your floors is have the carpets professional cleaned.
Did you know that there are a lot of benefits that come along with professional carpet cleaning? Check out a few of the main reasons why you should have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once each year.
Carpet is not made to last forever. You can, however, make it last longer by taking great care of it. Dirt gets ground into the carpet, and most vacuums do not offer a powerful enough suction to get the deepest dirt and debris from the carpet fibers. This is why you need to have them professionally cleaned to keep it fresh, and make the carpets last longer.
Since carpets tend to collect dirt and debris, this can actually get stirred up and circulate around in your air. This can lead to allergies and other health concerns. Allergens and certain bacteria are also usually present within the fibers of your carpet. Letting them build up over time can really decrease the quality of your air within your home or office. Having the carpets cleaned regularly will prevent this build-up, thus helping you breathe cleaner air.
How many times have you walked into someone’s home, or to a commercial building, and seen dirty, dingy carpets? It can be very off-putting. This is especially true on the commercial side. Chances are if you run a business, and have dirty carpets, people will be deterred from coming to your business. Homes also look better with clean carpets. Even if it may seem only aesthetic, clean carpets can really make any home or office look a lot better.
It is easy to forget about some of the things that you don’t do regularly in your home or office. Don’t let this be the case when it comes to your carpets. Enjoy the benefits of having truly clean carpets, and focus your efforts on the things that really matter to you.

As boring as the chore can be, you can’t deny that the process of decluttering and cleaning your home leaves you with some pretty happy feelings. Many people find joy in living with less. When you clear out old items you don’t want or need, you make room in your home for more happiness and possibilities.
Clutter tends to propagate negative energy. Every item in your home has an energy connection to you. When you release that item, you release the amount of energy you put into it. You end up feeling lighter, less tied-down, and mentally free. Plus, in the end, your home looks better once it’s decluttered. It’s definitely worth the effort.
Once you’re done with removing all that clutter, you don’t want to just throw it in the trash. Whatever you put in the dumpster ends up in a landfill that pollutes our air, water, and soil. Thankfully, there are options for what you can do with all that stuff.
Good on Paper
So much of household clutter ends up being paper. Old magazines, junk mail, cardboard boxes from online shopping, and old documents barely scratch the surface of what the average home has. When you start the decluttering process, it helps to put a large box in the corner of the room where you can dump any and all papers that need to be recycled. For photos and important documents, snap a picture of it with your phone or tablet and upload copies to the cloud. Other paper products you can recycle include file folders, milk cartons, poster board, brochures, take-out menus, newspapers, and outdated phone books.
Give Away the Goods
Just because you don’t want or need something doesn’t mean it should be out of commission. As long as they aren’t soiled or beyond repair, donating clothes to a thrift store provides them with the goods they need to fund whatever causes they work with. You can also donate things such as toys, electronics, kitchen wares, and decor to thrift stores. They also take things like old pillows, linens, blankets, and towels, but if you have an abundance of these, you can donate them to your local animal shelter.
Things you should not donate to thrift shops and shelters:
What to Do With the Rest
Whether you want to put the work in yourself or hire a business, you have to find ways to recycle the rest of the items you can’t donate or throw in your home recycling. Check with your city to see if they offer rebates for recycling old refrigerators and washing machines. If they don’t, most areas have at least one professional recycling service that can perform a pickup and dispose of all your unwanted items properly.
For smaller things such as bags of old clothing too worn down to donate, there are several stores that provide coupons and rebates for customers who bring in threads to be recycled. You can also take old books, DVDs, and video games to a used bookstore to see if you can get a few extra bucks for them. If not, these businesses often will donate what they don’t take to institutions that need them.
Keep It Going
Cleaning out unnecessary clutter feels great. Once you’ve cleared out everything, your new environment will help you to feel better mentally. Make a commitment to yourself to keep your home’s interior clean, organized, and free of clutter. It may help to add a weekly cleaning time to your calendar, make a cleaning checklist to follow, and invest in quality cleaning supplies. A high-quality vacuum will get rid of dust and pet dander from your floors and improve the air quality in your home. Consider investing in a bagless vacuum so you can avoid the hassle of having to change your vacuum’s bags. A high-quality, green-friendly upholstery cleaner will keep couches and recliners free from dander and allergens, and a high-quality, all-purpose cleaner will keep countertops free from germs.
Make a commitment to reduce your environmental impact by recycling things properly. Goods like clothes, toys, and small appliances can be given to thrift shops that need donations to give back to the community. Finally, enlist the help of a recycling company to pick up items that are too much for you to handle.
