Green Products for Healthy, Eco-Friendly Cleaning

One of the most important aspects of Lemieux’s Cleaning Company is our dedication to quality. As cleaners, we want to green-cleaningensure that we are using the best products possible in order to ensure your house not only gets clean but also promotes a healthy environment. The best way to do that is to use environmentally safe products or “green products” instead of regular cleaning supplies.

You may have seen them on the shelves before. Cleaning products marked with a green seal claiming their eco-friendliness. It is a small statement that makes such a giant impact on our environment as well as the health of you and your family. According to an article published on Care.com, many studies show that using a household cleaning product, even just once a week, increases the risk of developing asthma. Many people may not realize it but they could be making themselves more sick by using regular cleaning products. For me, this kind of defeats the purpose of cleaning in the first place.

There are numerous benefits to making the switch to green products, even more than the obvious fact that they are better for the environment.

They’re Safer

Many regular cleaning products can cause chemical burns to a person’s skin, eyes or throat. After being sprayed in the air, these chemicals may linger and be digested by you or your family. Green products meet the strict regulations regarding toxicity and combustibility. They are largely made from natural, non-toxic ingredients, such as lemons and vinegar, which leave a more pleasant smell than chemicals.

They’re Environmentally Friendly

Since green products are not filled with chemicals, they reduce the amount of toxins in the environment around you. By switching to greener methods, you not only decrease the amount of pollutants in the air but also in the water since many people may rinse out their sponge or mop buckets after cleaning. In addition, many green products go green all the way. This means that they choose recyclable packaging to minimize waste. Switching to green products is an easy way to make a positive impact on the environment with little effort.

They’re More Transparent

When you choose a snack to eat, you want to know what you’re actually eating right? There is so much stress placed on the ingredients of our food and drinks so why not our cleaning products? The government does not require ingredients to be listed on cleaning products, so many people do not know what they are cleaning with. Many green products or even homemade cleaning products let you know what to expect before you buy. They often utilize natural ingredients that are already found in our environment.


cleaning-productsMany people confuse the smell of cleaning products with actual cleanliness. In addition, some doubt the effectiveness of green products because many do not leave a strong scent. The truth is that although regular cleaning products are more pungent, they also produce toxins that linger in the air which causes pollution. Who knew lemon fresh could be so dangerous? Green products are just as effective but do not have any added chemicals. Air pollutants should be a serious concern for people who spend most of their time indoors, whether at home or at work. According to a fifteen year study by the National Cancer Association, women who work inside the house have over a 50% greater chance of developing cancer than women who work outside of their house. There are many contributing factors to this statistic, but the regular use of chemical-ridden cleaning products is certainly one of them. Utilizing green products at Lemieux’s Cleaning makes sense for our company. We don’t just want to give the illusion of a clean house, as many of the pungent regular cleaning products do. We want to ensure that your house or office is clean in a healthy and safe manner.

It is clear in the debate between regular cleaning products and green products, that the latter comes out on top. Not only do green products help protect our environment, but they also leave a lasting impression on our health and the health of our family, pets and anyone that enters our home. If you are considering making the switch to green products, make sure to look for the green seal certification. Products that have a green seal meet the environmental standards of being eco-friendly. In addition, hiring professional cleaners such as Lemieux’s Cleaning Company, that practice eco-friendly cleaning, will ensure that your space has been cleaned in a healthy and safe manner. You may even want to convince your boss to start utilizing eco-friendly cleaning services so that you and your co-workers can stay focused and safe at work. It is a small step to take but can truly save your health and the health of our planet.
