Cleaning with Eco-Friendly Products and Materials | Bredon Hill Cleaning Services

Did you know that not all cleaning products that you can find in supermarkets and stores are safe for your health? In fact, many of them contain chemicals and toxic materials, which can be really dangerous if used too frequently or improperly. Here are just a few examples - antifreeze (ethylene glycol) bleach, upholstery cleaners, drain cleaners, and ammonia can pose a serious health risk for a human being or a pet. Liver damages, neurological damage, and dizziness are common problems caused by these chemicals.

So, what would be the solution? Stop cleaning? Of course not! However, it is about time we change our way of cleaning. Stop looking for cheap cleaning services and toxic cleaning products. Eco-friendly cleaning materials is the way forward. Some of these products are already sitting comfortably in your cupboard, while others can be purchased or requested with an eco-friendly cleaning service.

Cleaning with Vinegar

Your grandma probably told you could clean a few bits and pieces with vinegar. And she is right. Apple cider vinegar and white vinegar are best to remove microbial contamination and to remove sticky stains on clothing. This edible acid works as a natural disinfectant too. Vinegar is one example of an eco-friendly cleaning product that can help in killing unwanted germs, and bacteria. Many housewives use it to clean kitchen shelves, stoves, titles, walls, and other kitchen accessories. There are plenty of DIY solutions you can create with vinegar and other natural products and use them to clean a variety of spots and stains.

However, as professionals we have to be completely honest with you. Although an acid, vinegar is not as strong as some commercial cleaning products. Professional cleaners use eco-friendly cleaning products that contain vinegar and other natural ingredients that boost the performance of the solution and deliver ultimate results.

Cleaning with Peroxide

3% Peroxide is best for cleaning room’s walls, office counters, brightening clothes and marbles flooring. Peroxide is an eco-friendly material with no toxic and harmful chemical properties. It is also effective to wash old and strong strains on bathroom furniture and sanitary items. You can actually create a home made eco-friendly toilet bowl bomb. It contains vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and essential oils. To maximise the cleaning performance of peroxide, mix it with vinegar.

Please, be aware that you really need to know what you are doing and remember basic chemistry lessons, before you go ahead and try to create your own cleaning mixture. If you are unsure of the proportions you need to use, don't risk it. It is much safer to opt for a professional eco-friendly cleaning service than to hurt yourself or damage your property.

Cleaning with Baking soda

If you like reading blogs about cleaning, you've probably seen a lot of recipes for DIY cleaning products that include baking soda. This natural product acts as an abrasive and is best for polishing, removing stains, degreasing, and sanitising. Also, it absorbs unpleasant smells when sprinkled over a surface.

When it comes to cleaning your oven, baking soda can be effective if you generally maintain it in a good and clean condition. In some scenarios when you haven't cleaned it for a couple of months, but you've used it frequently, you will need a cleaning product way stronger than baking soda.

Cleaning with Essential Oils

Your home is a place where you should feel most relaxed. Using essential oils to clean your home and freshen it up is great way to achieve that cosy and relaxing atmosphere. Essential oils are a natural antibacterial product that can remove some stains in just a few minutes. Best thing - they are absolutely eco-friendly cleaning products. Some of the most effective oils you could try are thyme, lemon, rosemary, lavender and eucalyptus. Lavender oil is also known as a proven stress-relief product.

Using eco-friendly cleaning products is good not only for your health, but also for the environment. As a socially and environmentally responsible company, we are committed to improving our cleaning services and including more eco-friendly materials in the work we do.
