How can you practice green carpet cleaning?
Cleaning carpets is often a very difficult ordeal for many people, yet something that must be done from time to time. However, there are a number of different things that need to be considered when carpet cleaning is talked about. What most people do when it comes to cleaning their carpets is to just call in the cleaners and hand over their carpets to them for cleaning. But do you really think that these carpet cleaners make use of clean, green carpet cleaning methods? Most of them do not. There is a number of different carpet cleaning Pakuranga shops around, but very few of these actually implement and make use of green methods that do not harm the environment when cleaning the carpets.
If you want, you can also clean your carpets on your own without having to make use of harmful substances at all. For those who do not know, the most popular agent used for carpet cleaning is perchloroethylene, which is also commonly known as ‘perc’. As you can expect, ‘perc’ is present in a number of different dry cleaning solutions and is awfully hazardous. Similarly, naphthalene, which comes from coal tar is also used in cleaning carpets, and does not do any better when it comes to preventing harm to the environment.
The health problems and repercussions that can be caused by these extremely harsh chemicals are extremely severe, ranging from excessive dizziness, fatigue and nausea to damage caused to the central nervous system of the body as well as liver and kidney damage. These chemicals have carcinogenic properties, and for children who have systems that are currently in development, it is even more dangerous and serious.
However, now you can practice green carpet cleaning with a number of chemicals that are made from herbal products, and come with a green ‘seal of approval’. Most importantly, the use of the hot water extraction method on a commercial scale has also been widely accepted as being a ‘green’ solution when compared with other environmentally hazardous carpet cleaning methods. The green carpet cleaning products that you can find in the market completely avoid the use of VOCs, making them highly safe to use. Most of them are biodegradable, and have very low limits of toxicity and soluble content, which ultimately results in lesser amount of waste and residue as well, making it a much safer option for carpet cleaning.
