    Implementing a green cleaning program as our only way of business is our duty to our community, our employees and ourselves. A program such as this allows us the opportunity to assist our customers in maintaining a healthy home, by raising awareness to the dangers of common household cleaners and teaching our employees how simple and effective cleaning can be, with basic green cleaners.

    The Wholesome Home plans to implement Green Cleaning as our only way of business, using only green certified products and cleaning techniques. Green cleaning benefits the environment by cutting down on hazardous waste into our eco-system, benefits our employees by reducing the amount of harsh chemicals they are directly exposed to and it benefits our customers by truly cleaning and purifying a home, not masking it with harmful chemicals and synthetic fragrance.

     Deciding to make a difference, in whatever way we can, is the first concrete step towards creating sustainable change in our environment. In the immortal words of Margaret Mead:

    ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.’

        Traditional cleaning agents tend to be caustic, wearing out surfaces over time and diminishing the longevity of your facility and your furnishings. Some cleaners can also agitate those with respiratory or skin sensitivities to chemicals.

        Using green cleaning products and methods like the Green Cleaning Pros can eliminate these problems so you can have a clean yet healthy space.
