3 Benefits of Green Cleaning in Your Home
Dec 12, 2017
Cleaning your home can be quite a chore, even with the bevy of products available to help you keep your home spic and span clean. Unfortunately, many of these products bring chemicals, odors, and worse into your home, and they also are harmful to the planet!
It’s no wonder that green cleaning options are growing in demand these days. They offer a safe and eco-friendly cleaning option that often exceeds the effects of traditional home cleaners. Here are just a few of the top reasons to consider green cleaning for your home.
1. Reduce Exposure to Harmful Chemicals
You’ve probably heard by now about the potential dangers of VOCs (volatile organic compounds). You may even know that they can be found in paint, solvents, fuels, glue, and other products.
What you may not know is that they are also commonly found in cleaners, disinfectants, and aerosol sprays as well. Using green cleaners reduces your family’s exposure to these compounds and the harm they can do.
2. Feel Better While Cleaning House
Many people have severe reactions to traditional cleaning supplies, causing them to feel sick. Believe it or not, many of the ingredients found in ordinary cleaning supplies can trigger asthma attacks, headaches, upper respiratory infections, and more. Try switching to green cleaning supplies and see what a difference it makes for your health.
3. Lower Your Carbon Footprint
One big benefit on the minds of many people choosing greener cleaning practices is the reduction of their carbon footprint.
