More and more people are deciding to change to eco-friendly cleaning products in their homes and it’s not hard to see why. It may cost you a little extra, or the products may be slightly harder to come by, but the benefits of using green cleaning products are massive. Cleaning companies now offer a green cleaning service and they are finding that it is increasingly popular with clients who want clean houses but not at the expense of their health, or the planet. Here are some top reasons why green cleaning will benefit you and your household:

Your Health Will Benefit

Traditional cleaning products use very harsh chemicals, some of which are linked to certain cancers, asthma, and other health problems. By switching to green cleaning products you are limiting (and sometimes eliminating altogether) the harsh chemicals. You and your children will be far better off without all these horrible substances lurking in your household and being absorbed into your skin. Add to this that there will be far fewer toxic fumes in the house from your cleaning products, and it all starts to make a lot of sense doesn’t it?

Your House Will Be Safer with Green Cleaning

Traditional cleaning products are so strong that when they come into direct contact with the skin, they can burn. They are also very dangerous to the eyes. Parents are continuously worrying about young kids getting their hands on strong bleaches and detergents – they can cause a lot of damage. If your kid gets hold of a green cleaning product, their health will be at far less risk.

It’s Not Always More Expensive

Some green cleaning products can be slightly more expensive than traditional methods, however there are homemade concoctions that you can make yourself, out of ingredients found in the cupboards. Vinegar has always been known to be an amazing cleaning agent, as is olive oil and lemon juice. By avoiding the supermarket brands and getting creative with your cleaning you are learning lots about how to clean without damaging your health, your pocket or your planet. You’ll know exactly what has gone into your cleaning products and your mind will be at rest, knowing that you are not poisoning your children with damaging chemical traces and fumes.

Your Conscience Will Be Clear!
