     What If I told you that everyday you allow over 50 of the most dangerous assassins into your home with your family, what if I told you these assassins claimed to be protectors of your family but actually all they do is hurt them? According to the average household contains over 64 toxic chemicals as a result of cleaning supplies only. These are the supplies we use to keep our homes safe and clean and I just told you they can lead to cancer, breathing problems, and even death.

    Lets think about that for a second, how can my cleaning products cause cancer and breathing problems? One of the main causes of the growth of tumors is internal inflammation, some of the harsh chemicals that are apparently so hard on grime are just as hard on your breathing tract and skin, unlike the digestive system, the skin has no way of filtering out toxins, when exposed to certain toxins they bypass any type of filtration and have unprecedented access to the organs. Some of these toxins found in everyday products such as air fresheners, oven cleaners, and glass cleaners. On of the most common chemicals found in a standard glass cleaner for example is ammonia, this chemical is known to be one of the most harsh agents against breathing is a common tool used in the weaponry of chemicals. Fortunately this and many of the other chemicals we are being exposed to that are not very healthy for us, all have safe alternatives, take ammonia for instance replace that ammonia based glass cleaner with your average household white vinegar and water and you will see streak-less glass without the emphysema.

    Aside from the effects the chemicals have on us personally, even greater is the risks we are exposing our world to. Or world depends on us for protection just as much as we on it. Our O-zone layer is at imminent risk and awareness is the only adequate protection. Green cleaning is providing the protection to ensure that our world may stand the test of time. It is the hope that by switching to green products and using less of these harsh chemicals the effects may be reversed. Visit our directory for green cleaning companies and tips. Help make this world better you owe it.

    Chesapeake Bay Cleaning Services is adding carpet cleaning to our business. We started out a small maid service looking to grow and expand our client base. Our goal is to become a full service cleaning company that can clean anything. This is just one step to achieving that goal. While a lot of people are making the switch to hardwood or laminate flooring, carpets are still one of the most popular choices of flooring out there. It is our view that, like grass, everyone needs to get their carpets cleaned. Where grass is weekly, carpets can be done two to three times a year. It helps to lengthen the life of your carpet. I like to think about carpet as an investment, wouldn't you want to protect it?

    Our company only uses green cleaning supplies, so rest assured that your children and pets and people with allergies can relax comfortably in your home.

    In recent times Green Cleaning has emerged as a globally accepted movement which employs effective cleaning that incorporates solutions which make considerations for both human and environmental health and protection. It seeks to thoroughly address these with the continuous use of green products, equipment, tools and practices. These products and practices usually avoid the use of toxic cleaning products and chemically reactive products which cause respiratory, dermatology and many other life threatening effects.

    Our company plans to embrace the continuous progression towards a greener and more resilient economy by way of the implementation of a green cleaning service program into our daily operations. The program will see the use of more green friendly, Non-Toxic products such as the Simple Green Products which we are currently using, the utilization of more homemade substitutions for cleaning chemicals which encompasses mixtures made from common household ingredients namely vinegar, salt, lemon juice etc., the increased use of recyclable and biodegradable cleaning materials as well as other basic green cleaning techniques.

    The continued implementation of a green cleaning service program will provide several benefits for our company, its employees and valued clients who we aim to provide a Reliable Quality work with guaranteed satisfaction. These benefits will range from Health - Economical – Social and from the health perspective will include added improved respiratory, dermatology and overall health for all from the use of less toxic chemicals when cleaning hence making homes and the environment much safer for us to dwell and socialize in. It will protect the environment, thereby protecting us by reducing our exposure to these deadly cleanings. Not forgetting to mention that green cleaning products also helps to eliminate odors thus making it much easier for us to breathe. The program will also provide much needed economic benefits for the company and its customers since green cleaning products helps to protect surfaces longer so our customers can save money, it will reduce the liability of our company by reducing the chances of our employees or customers becoming ill due to exposure with toxic chemical, improve the level of business productivity and so much more.

    As a houseman at a locally owned hotel, I recognize the importance and benefits of implementing a carpet cleaning program, which would be performed either weekly or bi-monthly depending on numerous factors.  The method I would select as to how to implement a carpet cleaning plan into this business is as follows. I would begin by conducting a needs analysis; walking around the property and mapping out areas that have carpet. Following the analysis, I would perform a deep vacuuming of all the carpeted areas, which would remove loose dust and dirt, especially in areas of the property that see frequent levels of high traffic. In addition to deep vacuuming, I would often perform routine vacuuming on a frequent basis as it is of great benefit because it will prevent dust and other potentially harmful particles from seeping far into the carpet.

    Understanding how to spot clean carpet and deep clean carpet are essential components when implementing a carpet cleaning program into a business. Spot cleaning and stain removal can usually be completed with a washcloth, warm water, and a detergent that is bleach free. Since many hotel properties (including ours) often experience high traffic during normal daytime hours, I would utilize this technique to clean areas that would require immediate attention during these times. For after-hours applications, and to simply perform routine carpet maintenance, I would utilize deep cleaning techniques which would require rental of a larger carpet cleaning or carpet steam cleaning machine. Performing this task on a weekly or bi-monthly basis would not only prolong the life of the carpet, but enhance its appearance as well.
