THE TRUTH EXPOSED
Thinking about getting a house cleaning service? Whether you’re moving out and you would like to get your security deposit back, if you’re hosting a party or you just want to spend more time on the ones you love the most- there are so many reasons to hire an apartment cleaning service or a house cleaning service. Finding the right cleaning service for you can be difficult as there are so many options however once you find the right one there is no turning back. The truth is- cleaners Evanston have so many benefits. They can truly impact your life for the better from freeing up your time to positively impacting your health. There are so many factors to consider when choosing a cleaning service however today we will be discussing the most important factor- the cleaning products the company use.
Behind The Chemicals
Since World War 2, we have been convinced to use chemicals to clean our homes. Before that, we mainly used natural products to clean, which may be shocking to some. Truth be told, after World War 2 the chemical industries boomed. The boom resulted in an influx of advertisements for these chemical cleaners, almost brainwashing the public to think that this was the only way to clean your home. We believe the strong smell of chemicals means clean however this is just not the case.
The Truth About Household Chemicals
The average US home has approximately 63 unsafe cleaning related chemicals. Using chemicals to clean has been linked to several deathly diseases, disorders of the immune system, asthma and cancer. People with lowered immune systems are especially at risk like children, senior citizens and pets- why put your family at risk? This is due to the nature of the chemicals as they can enter your body three different ways- through your skin, inhaling and ingestion. Chemical residues can be ingested through the skin as you touch surfaces around your home after cleaning it. The second and almost most dangerous way is through inhaling the chemicals you may not even know you are doing it! If a room in your home is not getting enough ventilation, then you may not even know you are ingesting them and they are harming your body. Thirdly, you may ingest the chemicals through your mouth, something that children are more prone to and at most risk to. When using chemicals to clean- the surface may shine however it is not really clean. Chemicals still lie on the surfaces which can be extremely toxic.
Fragrances are added to these cleaning chemicals, mostly in detergents and air fresheners. According to he National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health has found that one third of the substances used in the fragrance industry are toxic however as these formulas are considered to be trade secrets, they do not have to list their ingredients and are just required to label them as fragrances.
Most cleaners don’t list ingredients, which is a major indicator that something is being hidden. You can tell a lot about a product by its label. The signal words like ‘danger’, ‘toxic’ or ‘poison’ are the most dangerous for you and your family. Why would you want to bring such hazardous products into your home when there are so many better alternatives?

How It Works
I’m sure you’re wondering, but how does it even work? Well our cleaning ladies use a cleaning solution called de-ionized water, water in its purest form with no mineral contaminants. We like to call this hungry water as it attracts dust and microorganisms as well as dissolving them. When paired with a microfiber cloth, they are a dream team. Microfiber cloths trap dirt well as they are composed of tiny wedge hooks and loop- shaped fibers. When cleaning a surface, they catch dirt and dust. They have been proven to remove 99% of bacteria whereas a cotton cloth would only reduce the number of bacteria by 33%. There are so many more ways to effectively sanitize your home without chemicals such as using steam vapor on non electrical items, using a dehumidifier and even using chemical absorbing indoor plants help detoxify the air. Most of these plants inhale carbon dioxide and emit oxygen in its place which ultimately filters out airborne chemicals like benzene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and even arsenic. Some good plans for this include ferns, peace lilies, English ivy, mums, philodendrons, Chinese evergreen, leopard lily, and the ficus plant. Why use chemicals to clean when there are so many better options?
It Will Help The Environment
As previously mentioned, chemical free cleaning does wonders for your health. However, it does more than that- it is extremely beneficial for the environment. Chemical free cleaning leaves no carcinogenic or toxic residue on your home surfaces and doesn’t degrade the air quality inside your home in comparison to using chemicals.
According to ‘Swalco’, The solid waste agency of Lake County, Illinois, the waste that goes down our household toilets and drains end up in our sewage treatment plants and can eventually negatively impact wildlife, fish and our terrain. Chemicals that end up in our landfill system may transfer into the soil and pollute the surrounding waters. With chemical free cleaning, there is no waste left behind and no dangerous and carcinogenic waste released into the air. It is so much healthier for you, your pets and the earth as there is no chemical waste. Completing certain acts which change your habits, you can extremely benefit the earth’s health.
You’re probably thinking ‘prove it!’. Fresh Tech Maid’s CEO Wells Ye showed just how effective chemical free cleaning is, LIVE on Fox TV. As you can see in the video, we diminish the germ count of the surface they provided us with from 250 to 3- an extremely clean surface just from using our trusted de- ionized water and a microfiber cloth. Fresh Tech Maid has also been featured on both regional and national media networks such as WGN9, ABC, The Chicago Tribune, The Daily Herald and more!
Not only that, but our clients love it too! We judge the effectiveness of chemical free cleaning not just from science, but from our client satisfaction too. They express their gratitude through so many of our social media sites like Facebook and Google and other review sites such as BBB and Yelp. We have hundreds of reviews expressing how chemical free cleaning has changed their lives in so many amazing ways. Cleaning is mostly visual. After we leave their homes, they are impressed and have revealed how sparkling their home has been left. We can judge how clean a home is by the dust level, soil residue, lack of shine on surfaces and odor. You won’t be able to believe how effective chemical free cleaning is until you try it for yourself.

Team TatianaBook Instantly
We’ve been using Fresh Tech Maid for about 6 months and have been extremely happy with our service. They are in frequent communication about (rare) schedule changes. Tatiana, our tech, is fantastic. She is very detailed-oriented and pays special attention to problem areas. My husband frequently works from home, and she is always careful to not disturb him. We’ve tried many services in the past, and Fresh Tech Maid is by far the best.

Fantastic company to work with. Their techs are prompt and professional. Any concerns are quickly addressed and resolved. Theresa is my tech and it is a joy to see her. I know that when I come home from work, my house will be standing tall and my dog will have spent several hours with a good friend. She is quiet, very polite, and a hard worker. I have recommended her and Fresh Tech to my family and friends and will continue to do so in the new year!

Team AliciaBook Instantly
I was very impressed by Fresh Tech Maid. I was originally assigned a group of cleaners but fortunately, I ended up with Alicia. While she was late, she was extremely communicative in keeping me updated on her status. That completely made up for being late. She did a fantastic job cleaning. Very efficient and did a great job. My only thing I would change is I would check to see that they clean inside of the microwave. Besides that it was fantastic.

Team JoannaBook Instantly
We have been talking about getting a maid service forever and finally decided to give it a go. After a lot of research we landed on Fresh Tech as they are highly rated and I don’t have to worry about chemicals with young children. I have to tell you, it has been life changing. With two busy young boys I would say our house is clean, but lived in. Having Joanna come in twice a month to really get in there and deep clean is literally one of the best things we have ever done for our family! Talking about Fresh Tech and more specifically about Joanna she is just wonderful. It is amazing how much she gets done and how shiny the place looks when she leaves! If you are on the fence about getting some help around the house I say 1000% DO IT. And if you are wondering about a good, reputable and friendly company call Fresh Tech and request Joanna. You will not be sorry!!!
