Eco-friendly carpet cleaning is better for your home

Eco-friendly carpet cleaning removes the exposure to chemicals for you and your family and is better for the environment. Here are helpful tips for choosing green carpet cleaning solutions.

How to clean carpets in an eco-friendly way

1. Clean stains without chemicals

  • Green carpet cleaning products typically contain non-toxic ingredients such as cider vinegar and fruit or vegetable extracts. These types of products are also beneficial for the environment because they are biodegradable, and they are beneficial for your family because they do not leave allergens or any harmful chemicals in the rugs.
  • There are also plenty of businesses that do commercial cleaning of larger areas of carpet with these types products as well. All it takes is a little extra research online or asking a few extra questions over the phone to ensure that the carpet cleaning company you choose is the safest option for you and your family.

2. Vinegar and other items for removing stains

  • In addition to eco-friendly carpet cleaning products sold in stores and green carpet cleaning services, you can also use chemical-free items already in the home to clean particular types of stains. A very effective way to handle many spots is to use vinegar, either undiluted or diluted with water. You can easily apply your vinegar solution to stains by keeping some handy in a spray bottle. Stains such as crayon or other types can be easily brushed away with a small brush after applying the vinegar solution.
  • Sodium bicarbonate is also a great eco-friendly cleaning item, and it is especially useful for stains such as tea and coffee, soda, and chocolate, ketchup and cola. Be sure to treat the area as soon as possible for the best chance of removing the stain completely.
  • When faced with tough stains, you can also try using corn meal. The corn meal can be sprinkled onto the affected area and left to absorb the stain for about ten minutes. Then, simply rub the area with a diluted vinegar solution and wipe up the stain with a cloth or paper towels.
