    Green cleaning generally refers to using products and procedures that are safe for the environment and are designed to preserve human health. Green cleaning is considerably safer than using toxic chemicals to clean and I will waste no time in telling you the benefits!

    By utilizing a green cleaning program we are protecting our health and well beingMost conventional products contain very hazardous chemicals which can lead to skin rashes, headaches and can even raise the risk of developing asthma. Green cleaning products contain naturally derived, non-toxic and biodegradable ingredients which reduces our exposure to toxic chemicals and so do not affect our health

    Another great benefit of green cleaning is a healthier environment. With many cleaning products harmful chemicals are being released into the environment which is usually dangerous to inhale. By utilizing greener methods it aids in reducing pollution to our waterways and the air and it minimizes your impact on ozone depletion and global climate change.

    It is very important to realize the changes that are taking place everyday in our world. We Are so conscious of ourselves our image and increasingly aware of our health.

    The issues that we face up until now has gone unnoticed for years, but it is now a forefront issue. The chemicals we use daily without knowing the adverse effects and dangers that come with it. Chlorine for example goes directly into the bloodstream and causes tightness in the chest. Most cleaning agent are toxic and if not properly used can lead to several health problems.

    Enter green cleaning, solutions made born from all natural ingredients such as lemons, tree tea oil, vinegar, baking soda all are wonderful household agents with amazing results, without giving you or your clients harmful side effects. 

    It is imperative to offer these services in todays world and for cleaning companies it should become mandatory to at least offer the option and have a disclaimer for all the products that will be used and the possible dangers.

    As we focus on our health each day working out, eating healthy, dieting we often forget that we breath in tons of unwanted chemicals and dust. Most of us generally do not think about the household cleaning products that we use to keep our investments and businesses looking alive to be harmful and the cause of sickness, and overall over time poor health.

    Going Green greatly reduces the risk of breathing in harmful chemicals and provides a natural way to eliminates dust and allergens it is also been proven to increase overall quality of air. The most commonly used products include vinegar,baking soda, and olive oil we are firm believers in these everyday household items and use them daily in all of our cleaning assignments we would recommend going to our site at Services

    When I see read these type  of chemicals in cleaning products I am concerned:

    • Butoxyethanol is a common ingredient in multi-purpose cleaners and window sprays. You may recognize it by its sweet, slightly floral scent. It is a glycol ether solvent that helps break down dirt and oil.

    Extended exposure to 2-butoxyethanol can cause high-grade liver and kidney damage, narcosis, and pulmonary edema.

    Ammonia works as a polisher and glass cleaner, and while it is highly effective at leaving a streak-free shine, it also irritates human tissue. If you have lung or breathing problems, you’ll notice pain and discomfort quickly. If you don’t, prolonged exposure will still affect you and can cause permanent damage to your mucous membranes and cardiovascular system

    • Sodium hydroxide   already that oven cleaners are relatively heavy-duty cleaners. So are clog removers and drain cleaners, and it’s because they use lye, or sodium hydroxide, to corrode baked-in food and clumps of dried and hardened hair and skin.

    Even mild contact with skin or inhalation can cause severe reactions with sensitive areas. You may feel a burning sensation in your throat or on your skin for days following use of sodium hydroxide.


    The same chemical used to clean pool water is concentrated in scouring powder, laundry whiteners, toilet bowl cleaners, and mildew removers. Prolonged exposure can disrupt thyroid function, irritate skin, and cause chronic dryness.


    Many consumers are now taking advantage of the natural cleaning power of household items such as baking soda and vegetable soaps, and manufacturers are responding to the demand to create naturally safe cleaning products free of toxic chemicals. Avomeen’s cleaning product testing services are ideal for those who want to create cleaning products that are incredibly effective and reliably safe.
