The green cleaning practices span such a wide spectrum of environmental concerns such as employee (and client) health and well-being, by virtue of cleaning agents being consciously manufactured to contain low allergens, and being non-caustic, non-toxic, and containing 100% biodegradable cleaning compounds.

    Moreover, there are other practices that will greatly benefit a cleaning services such as, Installing the proper floor mats at every entryway to trap dirt and other pollutants from entering the building, and using only HEPA filtered vacuum cleaners to prevent dust from kicking up and being breathed in.

    The harmful effects of using cleaning chemicals compared to using natural green products are proven to be more riskier because of the harsh chemicals and negative affects it can have as opposed to green products that ensure safety. There are pros and cons to everything but overall the likelihood of something going "wrong" will be with chemical driven products than those that do not have it in their products. 

    "There are about 80,000 well documented chemicals commonly used, but there are many, many more in use whose environmental effects have not been studied or tested. These can range from human health to our environment. According to CBS News, unlike the numerous and heavy regulations imposed on food inspection, there is no such governmental regulation on chemical products. In addition, companies are only required to report primary, dangerous first-hand, hazardous chemicals, causing institutions to ignore chemicals with potential long-term effects or even avoid fully reporting all chemical ingredients present in a product (Smith, 2016)."

    A lot of misinformation has to deal with people not being fully aware with what ingredients are being used and what the harmful effects it can cause. If someone is uninformed and just use the first thing they see instead of doing some research and gaining more knowledge into products it can lead to a potential serious situation that could most likely have been avoided. Like mentioned in the material amyl acetate with is used in furniture polish that can attack the nervous system or Butyl cellosolve that is found in all-purpose cleaners and can irritate mucous membranes that attacks the liver and kidney these are just a couple of harmful products that can have serious impact on someone's health. 

    It is important to be aware and informed with every product and equipment being used as to stress the importance of one's health, others around and the environment. 24/7 Commercial Cleaning can be found in the  IJCSA Green Cleaning Directory to ensure the use of natural and safe non-toxic products will be used in services provided. 

    "If you go green, "No longer will there be chemicals absorbed into the skin or breathed in by the person cleaning. Health benefits extend to family members who are no longer breathing in cleaners lingering in the air and sitting on surfaces. Changing to greener methods helps reduce pollution to our waterways and the air and it minimizes your impact on onzone depletion and global climate change with fewer smog-producing chemicals(Weber, 2017)." It provides a healthier and safe environment than that of products with chemicals that most people are unaware of the hazardous side effects it can cause. 

    Like mentioned in the material there are thousands of harmful ingredients in chemical cleaning products and after reading and studying the material provided I will make sure that our services will provide products that are not harmful and dangerous especially now days where there are a lot of great natural and green cleaning products that work just as great if not better without the harmful side effects and pollution.

    Grandma used baking soda to remove foul smells in the washing. It whitened and brightened our laundry for generations. How did the "Modern Woman" (at the time..;) decided that new laundry detergents must be better because they were "New and Modern." is unknown. However, It probably made sense that when you bought a new machine or just ran out of your tried and true, you should try a new and improved product. One thing is true, television was just available in the homes and product marking was at historical highs. Over the years it seems that the availability of premixed soaps and ready to use packs, liquid options etc. took the place on the shelf where our baking soda and vinegar once resided. It was several years ago when I became aware of the natural powers of everyday items and household staples for use as handy, safe and effective cleaners. 

    The truth is, it took a teenage Boy to set me straight about cleaners. He was taking my Living skills class and we were studying laundry tips. He educated the whole class about common stain removal solutions, bathroom cleaners, and green alternatives that are better for the earth and our health. Come to find out he gained his knowledge from his amazing foster Mom. After my education, I switched many of my household chemicals out for recycled or refillable alternatives. I love the idea of doing my small part to help out the ozone and limiting my families exposure to harmful toxins in our home.

    Am I cleaning or hurting my environment with the cleaning products that we use every day? Most of the traditional cleaning products that we use every day are harmful to our health and the environment due to the chemicals they are made with. 

    The most common in daily use is chlorine, Sulfuric acid, Ammonia, and Alkylphenol ethoxylates just to mention some of them. These chemicals harm our health in different aspects, some are irritating to the skin, others when we breathe them.

    An example is the common glass cleaner or mirrors, some contain Isopropyl alcohol that can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, and throat, and Ammonia which is also an eye irritant and the skin that causes coughing, short breathing and wheezing.

    All women like to clean the kitchen with chlorine to kill all germs and disinfect very well to keep the family very healthy, but chlorine is one of the most deadly chemicals since ancient times. But when you smell it for a few minutes it gives you headaches and throat irritation.

    For years we have used these products that damage our health, our mood, our environment day by day without knowing that they are the cause.

    We can change all this if we clean every day with natural products that do not harm our health or our environment such as vinegar, sodium carbonate, borax, just to mention a few.

    Vinegar and water are used to clean and disinfect most surfaces. Baking soda is a very good odor controller just like borax.

    Stop hurting yourself and the environment! Find a green cleaning service here.
