What Is Green Cleaning Services Why You Need It

If you’re looking for an environmentally safe and hypoallergenic alternative for cleaning services, from the burning of essential oils such as lavender and jasmine while clean, to the organic tea bags leave on every bed, green cleaning services make extended efforts to ensure that you come home to a space that is clean, rejuvenating and stimulating to the senses, which only use non-toxic, environmentally-friendly cleansers and products that have not been tested on animals. The idea came from the founder’s desire to find a reliable cleaning service and her personal interest in using green cleaning products. We continually research new environmentally friendly cleaning products that are both safe and effective.

Why should you use a Green Cleaning Service?

As global warming and environmental concerns continue to rise, it is important for every person to do their part to help protect and preserve what we have. The products we use are biodegradable, chlorine-free, not-derived from animals nor tested on animals and not hazardous to the environment. We differ from the others because we care about you, your family, your pets, your home and most of all our environment.

Cleaning Practices

There are many ways to clean a home. Cleaning a home with harsh cleaning solvents is the fastest way to clean. Yet, as with all things in life, there is a price to pay for the convenience. Most of these harsh cleaning solvents contain toxic petroleum-based chemicals that stay suspended in the air for hours and cling to surfaces for days. Take a look at the warning labels on the back of most conventional cleaning products…that is why we don’t use them in your home. Imagine cutting fresh vegetables for your family’s dinner on a counter that had been sprayed with toxic cleaning chemicals a few hours before or soaking in a relaxing bath with remnants of skin irritating cleaning solvents.

A: We are equipped with our own eco-friendly cleaning supplies, however for sanitary reasons Go Green requires that each client supply their own cleaning tools. The basic tools needed are: a broom, mop, mopping bucket, dust pan, toilet bowl brush, step stool and vacuum. If the client has a vacuum then very often there is no need for a broom. If a client does not possess the appropriate cleaning tools and informs us in advance, we will be happy to furnish the client with the appropriate cleaning tools at an additional charge (with the exception of a vacuum). Please keep in mind that quality cleaning tools clean more effectively.

Q: We have pets, is that a problem?
A: Most Floridians have pets so we are accustomed to working around them. If your pets tend to get anxious around strangers it is best them in an enclosed area during the first cleaning or until they become accustomed to the cleaner. Please remember that extra time is needed to rid a home of pet hair.
