Green used to just be a colour, but that’s certainly not the case any longer. Nowadays, you’re more likely to hear it as a term regularly mentioned when people talk about something that is good for the environment.
Typically, it refers to a product that is environmentally friendly. What this means is that the product does not do damage to the environment or any ecosystems.
For a long time, cleaning products were anything but environmentally friendly, which is why it is so important to utilise only green cleaning services. This is true whether you’re looking to have a professional cleaning service in your home or office.
Traditionally, cleaning products have contained bioactive molecules that harm the environment. These molecules can make their way from cleaning products to the environment in a number of ways, such as by biodegrading into more harmful substances, or even leaking into the cleaning products from the containers that these products are stored in.
In contrast, green cleaning services utilise products that aren’t chemically reactive and don’t contain toxic chemicals. There are numerous benefits to employing green cleaning services, both short and long term.
Dermatologically speaking, green products do not cause rashes, and skin and eye irritations like other cleaning products. Moreover, many regular cleaning products contain compounds that mimic oestradiol, which is a human sex hormone. These compounds may impede correct development in boys and quicken the occurrence of puberty in girls.
