    In today's world, where there are so many chemicals and toxins in the air and food we consume, green programs are highly needed. Our team here at Prestige Cleaning has decided to implement a green cleaning program not only as a business plan but as a lifestyle. We want everyone to live full and healthy lives, using natural products gives us the peace-of-mind knowing we are not spreading harmful chemicals in the homes and offices that we clean. 

    Furthermore, we will be creating and manufacturing our own product line right here in the USA. That way we know exactly what ingredients are going into the cleaners that we will be using. This will also cut out the transportation that may have occurred shipping the items over sea. That is just another way of staying green that is not just including the products that we use.

    Health awareness concern rises from the food we eat to the products we are using in our everyday life's, we fail to acknowledge this area when it comes to cleaning as well. From the floors to refrigerator to bathrooms. Our lives get busier and when its time to clean; the list of products and supplies becomes overwhelming, our cabinets are filled with different cleaning products for different areas of our homes.

    Here are three reasons why you should use Ecofriendly Cleaning products.

    1.  A Healthier Home:  Eco-friendly cleaning will give you the peace of mind about providing a healthy environment for you and your family, including your pets.  There is nothing better than cleaning your home, not concerned with what your skin is absorbing while doing so, nor about your children and pets being around your products, because eco-friendly products are safer an healthier option than chemicals used so prominently today.
    2. Better Air Quality: Eco-friendly products, decreases the chances of developing asthma which it has become a common chronic illness. Imagine a clean home  without contaminating the air your breath. 
    3. Inexpensive :  You already have many eco-friendly products in your pantry,  vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice, even olive oil. Making them cost effective in comparison to the chemical cleaners lined up on the  isle at your local supermarket.

    As more people become aware of the harmful effects of chemicals have on our health and their abundance in our environment, all leading us to find more Eco-friendly alternatives. Next time you clean, look no further than your own cupboards and keep it Green!

    Carpet cleaning will be a central focus in my business. Carpet Cleaning is sanitary and adds to the value of a home when done properly. I plan to incorporate carpet cleaning services as an additive to my over all cleaning services to provide customers with a clean environment for enjoying the space that they live in. Clean carpet is an integral part of a clean home and without it you could be faced with all types of bacteria, germs, dirt and grim, which is the reason I want to provide my services.

    I plan to help all my customers come to enjoy the space they live in. Cleanliness is next to godliness as they say and I want my clients to feel as if their home is their heaven or haven of safety. Carpet cleaning excites me when it is done properly. I plan to use a vacumm always before I clean a home. Customers want the extra attention even if they are on a budget and cutting corners is not what I want my business to stand for. If its not "Pristine" its not clean!

    For my business, Simply Superb,  I plan to use my Green Cleaning Certification in many ways. One way would be showing my future costumers not only am I aiming to be Eco-Friendly, but I took the necessary steps in becoming certified as a professional Eco-Friendly Cleaning Service

    Also, I feel as though it will increase my potential  customer gain due to the knowledge and awareness of hazardous chemicals used in the Cleaning Industry today. I will use my knowledge to promote a well-known clean and hygienic  cleaning service.

    Using green cleaning products instead of conventional products has its pros and cons most green products advertise they are green and don’t use harmful ingredients. They also list all ingredients on the label so you’ll know what is in them. 

    Cons about green cleaning

    Green products usually come at a higher price point and take a little bit more muscle for the same level of clean that you get from traditional products. Green products are continually improving however.

    Pros about green cleaning

     Green products won’t damage surfaces over time like traditional products can. They are also better for the environment if you are using something that needs to go down the drain. They also have no harmful effects if you accidently come in contact with them to your skin or eyes. 

    Switching to Green Cleaning products is good for the health and wellbeing of your people, and it also prevents unnecessary chemicals from being released into the environment.

    Don’t fall prey to the anti-bacterial craze. The FDA has found that antibacterial soaps and hand cleansers do not work better than regular soap and water and should actually be avoided. Unless you live in a hospital or a clean room, there is no reason to eradicate all the germs from your home.

    Ever walked into a building after someone has thoroughly cleaned it ? Smelled that fresh bleach smell. As you look around and see how organized everything is and still that bleach and household cleaning smell. 

    How about ever made the mistake of mixing Bleach with another chemical. Then get this burning in your chest, find it hard to breath? This can come from the harmful chemicals you have mixed together and in most cases the same effects can happen if the chemicals are used separately.

    Which is why most companies provide a go Green or eco Friendly cleaning service. Keeps the air fresh, more productive. Going green is alot healthier than using your everyday products.

    Implementing green cleaning is not just a phrase. Green cleaning is not just good for your clients but can help develop a good relationship with clients as well good word of mouth for future clients to come. Using green products can be definitely more safer than your everyday cleaning products such as bleach. 


    Mainly because if you mix bleach with most other chemicals it can cause a chemical reaction that you should not be inhaling. The smell can also linger in your clients residence or place of business. Some do not like the smell of bleach or could possibly be allergic. Green cleaning is also good for our eco system and everyday life. Most Green cleaning products are made from all natural ingredients that can still do the same thing as bleach or other chemicals.

    Implementing green cleaning is very positive, not only for businesses, but the environment also. There  is a lot of benefits from green cleaning. Safer products, better air quality, less expensive, no toxic fumes and no gloves required. Also, a lot of products are biodegradable and are safe around kids and pets.

    I feel confident implementing green cleaning into my daily work routine. I also would suggest other business owners to do the same and follow my footsteps of going green. #Come clean, IKEA, and The Hershey Company are all advocates to promoting green cleaning.
