One of the biggest problems people face with indoor carpet is that it makes the perfect home for mites, mold spores, and dust. While vacuuming is the first line of defense in cleaning your carpet, eventually your carpet will need to be cleaned with a specialized solution. Many of these carpet cleaning solutions contain a dry cleaning agent called perchloroethylene. Other cleaners may contain naphthalene which is a carcinogenic solvent that has been linked to red blood cell damage. Besides the major cancer-causing risks associated with both of these chemicals, people have often reported dizziness and nausea from the fumes. Pets are affected the same way that humans are. For these reasons, neither of these substances should ever be used on your carpet.
Regardless if a toxic cleaner is spritzed, sprayed, or poured, the harmful effects always exist. For that reason, when choosing to have your carpets cleaned, the safest choice you can make is to go with an organic carpet cleaner. Organic carpet cleaning uses only non-toxic and biodegradable cleaners that have a pH balance that is gentle on both your carpet and the environment. When having your carpets cleaned by PureGreen Carpet Cleaning New York, you can rest assured in knowing that they specialize in healthy cleaning of your carpet to ensure the safety of your family and yourself.
Often homeowners set out to attempt to clean their own carpets and when they are finished they often regret it. Besides not getting professional results, the homeowner makes the error of using one of the many common brands that are sold in local stores, not realizing that the cleaner they purchased contains chemical solvents that are like the ones that are used by dry cleaning companies. Not only do these commonly used carpet cleaners and spot removers give off an extremely strong odor, they can also aggravate numerous allergies and respiratory conditions. Below is a list of just a few unsafe ingredients that can be found in non-organic cleaning solutions:
- Lye (Sodium Hydroxide)
Organic carpet cleaning doesn’t put off the nauseating vapors that regular carpet cleaning can. Not only can non-organic cleaning solutions pollute your home, they can also pollute the outdoor environment. Organic carpet cleaners are a significantly healthier option for both you and the environment. While having your carpet cleaned in a traditional manner leaves you with a lingering vapor, organic carpet cleaning will leave your home smelling fresh and clean. In addition, when using an organic carpet cleaner the possibility of mold growth is greatly lowered over that of traditional carpet cleaning.
While it is recommended that you contact a professional for your organic carpet cleaning, like PureGreen Carpet Cleaning New York, the most vital thing is to be aware of the harmful and dangerous chemicals that are often in carpet cleaners that are found at your local supermarkets and retail chain stores. PureGreen Carpet Cleaning New York uses only the best organic plant-based cleaning solutions and non-toxic extraction methods. For your family’s and personal safety, make it point to choose only organic carpet cleaners.
