Why Environmentally Friendly Cleaning Solutions Are a Better Option

By Cleaning Tools, Deep Cleaning, Green Cleaning Solutions

environmentally friendly cleaning solutionsThe more we learn about the chemicals that comprise common household cleaners, the more concerned we should be about the effects they are having not only on the Earth but on our bodies. While some cleaning agents and materials are effective at cleaning up some difficult messes, they can also pose serious health risks to those who use them or come into contact with them.

Some of these cleaning agents aren’t as effective as many people think, either. When it comes to sustainable floor cleaning solutions, the environmentally responsible choice from Professional Surface Restoration is also the more effective one.

The Professional Surface Restoration Difference

Some cleaning companies use bleach and other harmful chemicals that may not be as effective as many believe when it comes to cleaning messes. For example, many people mistakenly believe that bleach is the best way to kill mold growth, when the reality is that bleach is not an effective solution for mold. Using bleach to clean up mold will likely only mask the mold’s color, partially cleaning it and giving the appearance of cleaning, but mold will likely return on most porous surfaces.

We use environmentally friendly cleaning techniques to provide our clients with intense deep cleaning for many types of flooring materials.

Our five-step process begins with pre-treatment to safely prepare the surface for intense cleaning, then we use heat and high water pressure to dislodge dirt, oils, bacteria, and other particles from the floor before using a vacuum system to clear away the debris and dirty water from the floor. This process outperforms standard bleach-based floor cleaning in a more environmentally responsible and medically safer way.

Why Choose Environmentally Friendly Cleaners?

Many cleaning agents, like bleach and other floor treatment chemicals, can leave behind dangerous residue. This residue may collect in hard-to-reach areas where it can create problems later, such as potential exposure to small children or pets. Bleach-based cleaning techniques can also mask dirt and other messes, not only failing to remove it but also making it more difficult to see in the future.

Chemical cleaners also harm the environment, both during their manufacturing and after disposal. Dirty bleached water can potentially contaminate water supplies. Industrial waste from chemical manufacturing can harm local wildlife and contributes to industrial landfill waste. Chemical residue from unsafe cleaning methods can also degrade air quality inside a home, place of business, or commercial property, potentially causing respiratory irritation and other medical issues for guests, visitors, tenants, and customers.

Conventional chemical cleaners can only offer middling performance and substantial risk compared to the environmentally responsible cleaning techniques we use at Professional Surface Restoration. Our EPA-approved, environmentally friendly floor cleaning solutions are a responsible, effective, and safer option for residential and commercial properties.

7 Reasons to Choose a Company That Uses Green Cleaning Solutions

By Green Cleaning Solutions

Green Cleaning SolutionsMany commercial cleaners are harsh and can be detrimental to the environment. Professional Surface Restoration uses only EPA-approved technologies and cleaners that are ecologically responsible. Using green cleaning solutions and products is critical in protecting the environment and the health of your family (e.g., less likely to trigger allergic reactions, better for children and pregnant women, etc.). Read on to learn more about the benefits of green cleaning solutions.

Green Cleaning Solutions for a Healthier Home

Green cleaning removes potentially harmful chemicals from your home, preventing accidental absorption or inhalation by you or your family. Use of a cleaning spray increases the risk of asthma, the most common chronic illness among children in the country. Going green with cleaners can also reduce health problems with the eyes and lungs and prevent potential headaches, and can even eliminate the need to use chemicals present in normal cleaners that have been linked to reproductive risks.

Clean Environment

Cleaners release harmful chemicals, which is bad for you and the environment. A switch to green cleaners helps in reducing air and water pollution and cuts down on ozone depletion, thus helping in the fight against global warming. Many green cleaners are distributed in recyclable materials, meaning fewer waste by-products.


Because green cleaners use safe products, your skin and eyes face fewer risks from chemical burns. Green cleaners are not corrosive and comply with strict EPA standards for inhalation toxicity, combustibility, and skin absorption.

Better Air

Strong chemical odors permeate a space, leaving a stench that burns the nose. Green products, store-bought or home-made, largely feature the pleasant smells of essential oils, adding an element of aromatherapy to your cleaning.


If you make a cleaner from vinegar, olive oil, or lemon oil, you will spend pennies compared to dollars for your cleaning products. Crack open that pantry and see what you have on hand that will do the trick.

More Bacteria

The FDA declared that anti-bacterial soap had no cleaning advantages over regular soap and contributes to spawning resistant bacteria. One element in antibacterial soap can affect the function of your hormones and thyroid. Green cleaning products do not contain any of these elements.


Currently, companies are not required to show a full ingredients list on their cleaners. If you make cleaning products at home, you control what goes into them. This can help you be more aware of what is being used to clean your house and can eliminate any unknown ingredients that could harm you.

Keep yourself informed and your home safe by choosing green cleaners. To schedule a cleaning with a company that uses EPA-approved and environmentally friendly solutions, contact Professional Surface Restoration today.
