Is Chemical-Free Cleaning the Same as Green Cleaning?
They are different. Green cleaning is chemical-based cleaning with friendlier chemicals. Chemical-free cleaning minimizes chemical use and reduces cleaning chemicals by 95% to 100% for regular cleaning.
The 3 Key Advantages of Chemical-free Cleaning vs. green cleaning are:
- No Airborne Toxins – safer cleaning. All cleaning chemicals, including green cleaning chemicals, have chemical reactions with soils on the surface to be cleaned. The chemical reaction helps detach the soils from the surface, but it also creates airborne toxins. Chemical-free home cleaning does not use chemical reaction as the mechanism for detaching surface soils. Thus, no airborne toxins are emitted.
- No Chemical Residues – healthier cleaning. Chemical-based cleaning leaves visible and invisible chemical residues on surfaces. These cleaning chemicals and chemical by-products remain in the home environment, meaning more health risks for kids, pets and everyone else. Chemical-free cleaning leaves nothing toxic behind.
- No Promotion of Germ Growth – cleaner cleaning. Green cleaning utilizes the friendliest chemicals to organisms and humans to minimize the negative impact. The residues from green cleaners are so organic and friendly to bacteria that they may actually provide a rich food source for them, encouraging the growth of the very microorganisms we are trying to eliminate and control. Chemical-free house cleaning does not provide any opportunity for bacteria to feed.
