Eco Friendly Carpet Cleaning
Newer versions of carpet shampoos now have organic formula varieties with packaging that is biodegradable and non-toxic. This kind of cleaner is safe for kids, pets and persons with asthma or other sensitivities and chemical-induced allergies.
Professional carpet cleaning services also have their own eco-friendly systems. One offering is dry extraction carpet cleaning. Pros are using moist organic compounds as cleaning agents and are utilizing more advanced equipment that create less waste. Some cleaning companies feature powerful, yet non-toxic, cleaning by using oxygenated brightener, which is a color-safe, hypoallergenic carpet whitener. Other cleaning co mpanies use carbonated cleaning bubbles as carpet cleaner. This is a mild and safe formulation that requires a minimum amount of water. Some carpet cleaning companies prefer to advocate steam cleaning, which many consider the safest, and most effective system.
There are a number of earth-friendly goods that are affordable, readily accessible, and can be extremely effective carpet cleaners. For example, the cleansing and deodorizing properties of baking soda have been touted for quite some time. The best part? It's an easy product to work with. Simply dust the baking soda on top of your carpet, spray on some hot water, leave for a few minutes, and then vacuum. If there's a stain, you may need to scrub a little, but not too much. Salt, vinegar, and sometimes just plain water can do wonders for cleaning and making your carpet odor-free.
Next time you're in need of cleaning your carpet look for alternatives to harsh chemicals and go the all natural route - your health and the planet will benefit from the effort.
