The simplest definition of green cleaning is cleaning that minimizes or eliminates exposure to dangerous chemicals, protecting your health without harming the environment making your home safer.
Today there are green-certified carpet-cleaning chemicals available that are healthier to use for building occupants and the carpet-cleaning professional as well as the environment.
Green Seal and the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI), test and evaluate, through the use of accredited laboratories, carpet-cleaning chemicals and other products. Once these products meet the organization's criteria to be environmentally preferable, on-site inspections are completed, and if approved, along with other measures, the product is deemed green.
Green Seal's environmental standards ensure proper performance by including functional performance criteria along with environmental performance criteria. The former are based on accepted methods of ISO or ASTM and typically cover the major functions or characteristics of the product category.
Stax Steamer believes a sustainable community will use its resources wisely while ensuring adequate resources are available for future generations. We believe in order to meet this goal we must cooperate with our customers to improve public health and a better quality of life by using safe cleaning products and procedures preventing pollution, limiting waste, promoting efficiency and maximizing conservation.
Environmentally responsible products can be as effective as, or even more effective than, conventional products, without all the questionable chemicals or ingredients often used in the latter.
It is important to keep in mind that the role of cleaning in general is to remove contaminants within a building and to protect public health. Normally occurring contaminants such as mold, bacteria and viruses can have serious health consequences, especially to sensitive or vulnerable occupants (i.e. woman who are pregnant or nursing, young children, those with existing health conditions, etc.).
Furthermore, many occupants are sensitive to contaminants indoors such as dust, VOCs, pesticides and even the cleaning products themselves.
Green cleaning can help reduce the exposures, which in turn can improve health and performance. This can be achieved by reducing the contaminants through more thorough cleaning, as well as by eliminating the source of contaminants that the cleaning people may unintentionally be introducing inside the building every time while cleaning.
Green cleaning uses products and procedures that avoid toxic ingredients that can linger in the building, such as carcinogens, reproductive toxins, mutagens, respiratory irritants, endocrine disruptors, etc., and ingredients that can harm the outside environment, such as persistent toxins, non-biodegradable substances, and eutrophic pollutants (such as phosphates).
