Clean Carpets and the Going Green
It always strikes me as strange that there would be any debate about “going green.” The bottom line is that we all live within the environment. Some people talk about the environment as though it is this thing that is out there somewhere that you are either for or against. If the environment was to become uninhabitable, guess what? We depend on the environment for our lives. Who wants to breathe polluted air and drink dirty water?
One of the best thing that you can do for the environment is to take care of the things that you already have. Buying more and more things when it is not really necessary just puts more junk into the landfills. The longer your carpet lasts, the better it is for the environment. So when you have your carpet cleaned regularly, you are prolonging its life and making a very positive green lifestyle statement.
When dirt and sand get into your carpet it acts kind of like sandpaper. It scratches against the fibers and damages them. That’s bad enough, but the problem gets worse day by day until you have the carpet professionally cleaned and that soil gets lifted out of your carpet.
Another thing that hits very close to home when you talk about green living and carpet cleaning is the use of chemicals. We have no way of knowing what the impact of harsh chemicals will be when we breathe them and when they are absorbed into our skin and that of our pets and children. When you have your carpet cleaned, or even if you clean it yourself, you should know what chemicals are in the solutions that are being used.
Much has been learned about how harmful certain chemicals can be over the years, and we are still learning. Keeping toxic cleaning supplies in a locked cabinet is a common safety practice, but many people don’t stop think about the chemicals that they are using when they clean their carpets.
