Three Reasons to Choose a Green Carpet-Cleaning Company

As a business owner, you may want to make decisions that will help the environment but feel that you can't do so without some extra justification. After all, implementing expensive "green" procedures that make your company go bankrupt won't help the environment much. But if you're looking for carpet-cleaning services, you'll be pleasantly surprised to find that green carpet cleaning comes with several valuable advantages that make it worth your while. Here are three of them.

1. Fewer allergens

The harsh chemicals used by conventional cleaners may present a problem to people with allergies. If you're cleaning the carpets of an area that's open to the public, you'll definitely need to take this into consideration. Both normal allergy symptoms (such as hay fever) and asthma can be a problem. Even if your carpeted areas aren't open to the public, you may be causing problems for some of your employees if you use traditional carpet-cleaning chemicals. Green carpet-cleaning companies often use natural products that are less aggravating. Be sure to ask what type of cleaning products are used when you're deciding on a green carpet-cleaning service.

2. Affordability

Unlike installing new light fixtures or adding solar panels to your roof, switching cleaners requires little to no upfront investment. And because green cleaning often makes use of existing techniques (such as steaming) and uses cleaning products based on common materials, the alternative doesn't necessarily cost more than traditional carpet cleaning (although prices may vary). This means that you're getting a great value for your money; you're not only keeping your rugs safer for customers and employees, but you're also getting a good cleaning and helping to save the earth all at the same time with little to no extra investment of cash.

3. Fast drying

Traditional carpet-cleaning techniques soak your carpets through with gallons and gallons of water. It may take days before the carpets are fully dry again. But one of the alternative techniques sometimes used by green cleaning companies is a technology that cleans carpets thoroughly with much less water use. This water conservation practice can not only help the environment but also make the cleaning process much more convenient for you. With less water in the carpet, you'll be able to use it again much sooner because the water won't take so long to evaporate. Not all green cleaners use this technique, so be sure to ask before deciding on a service.

As you can see, there are unexpected benefits to using a green carpet-cleaning service. If you're debating the pros and cons of a green service versus a conventional one, try to find one that conserves water and uses natural cleaners and give it a try. You may decide never to go back!
