by | May 13, 2022 | Carpet Cleaning

If you’ve been searching for carpet cleaning or other cleaning services, then chances are, you’ve come across the phrase: “green carpet cleaning.” But what is green carpet cleaning?

Green carpet cleaning refers to the use of natural, eco-friendly cleaning products, solutions, and methods. Not only are these better for the environment, but they’re also kinder to your home, are non-toxic, and are bio-degradable.

Over the last few years, green cleaning has become more and more popular. And that’s great to see! At Eco Clean Texas, we provide green carpet cleaning in San Antonio, providing you with a clean, non-toxic, and safe cleaning experience.

The remainder of this blog post will discuss more on green carpet cleaning, including a few ways you can do it yourself and a little more on our services at Eco Clean Texas. We will also follow up with a short FAQ.

DIY green carpet cleaners tips

Whether you work with a professional cleaning company or not, there are a few DIY solutions you can do at home (or work) to clean in a little more eco-friendly way.

For example, you can:

  • Create your own cleaning solution (white vinegar mixed with water) – it’s non-toxic and great for killing germs, bacteria, and even mold.
  • Switch to environmentally friendly cleaning products – you can either make them yourself or purchase eco-friendly alternatives. Also, if you do purchase new products, consider re-fill options as opposed to new bottles.
  • Use baking soda – baking soda is affordable, easy to use, and works wonders for all things cleaning, from unblocking drains to cleaning shower curtains.
  • Re-use old toothbrushes for cleaning – use old toothbrushes (after a good clean) for cleaning – save on plastic, and they’re great for those difficult-to-reach spots.

Green carpet cleaning services – what does it include?

Unlike a home carpet clean which usually just involves a quick vacuum, we have a little more of a thorough process.

To begin with, we assess your carpet cleaning needs – what needs cleaning and how much it will cost.

After this, we prepare for green carpet cleaning by protecting your home – using corner protectors, floor runners, and screens.

We then clean your carpet using environmentally-friendly products and years of expertise. We treat stains, sanitize your carpet, and remove any nasty odors.

Once we’re finished, and your carpet is clean, our technician completes a spot check to ensure the clean meets our standards – we also make sure you’re happy with the results!

Green carpet cleaning vs. traditional carpet cleaning

Regular carpet cleaning is essential to maintaining a clean home, but why should you choose an environmentally-friendly option over more traditional methods?

For starters, green carpet cleaning is healthier, reduces exposure to harmful chemicals and toxins, and is much better for those with asthma and other respiratory problems.

Second, less harsh chemicals reduce air pollution and your carbon footprint (as less water is required for cleaning). By reducing waste, you’re reducing the required energy, which is also great for the environment.

You can achieve the same results, if not better, while doing your part for the environment.
