Clean Your Home in the Green Way with These 4 Tips

One of the key factors responsible for labeling your own home ‘healthy’ is its cleaning technique. Everyone loves to stay in a home that smell fresh, looks clean and is hygienic by all means. As a homeowner, it is your duty to clean your home in a way that does not affect the occupants or the home environment. It is known that the cleaning professionals in San Francisco adopt practices that make your home not only clean but also green (safe for the environment).

So if you also intend to clean your house in a way that is safe for the surrounding environment, these are the practices that you should adopt:

  1. Check the ingredients of the chemical cleaners– Green cleaning is the cleaning method that incorporates the use of non-toxic, natural and biodegradable cleaning products. If you intend to green clean your house and don’t have the green products used by the professional, commercial ones can suffice but you must check the ingredients before purchasing it. The composition must not contain chemicals that are toxic to the health of living creatures or the environment; the products should be eco-friendly by nature. Check for labels since some of the products already have Eco-friendly mentioned in it.

  1. Keep the windows clean– Windows are the main source of ventilation in your home; let the sunrays and fresh breeze enter your room throughout the day. However, if the windows are left unclean, having dirt piled up on the surface with cobwebs hanging on the frame, not only will it spoil the entire appearance of your home but also function as an obstruction. That is why green house cleaners prioritize window cleaning by using the right tools and green products. Purchase Eco-friendly cleaning solutions in the form of liquid soaps and bars; use it in small amount and clean the glass gradually with a microfiber cloth.

  1. Anti-bacterial soaps are not always cool- You may go by the advertisement that says ‘anti-bacterial soaps kill maximum germs’ but the reality is pretty different; these soaps are similar to any other ordinary cleansers and comes with no such superpower. Researches say that anti-bacterial soaps even have the ability to give birth to ‘super germs’ that are notable for their power of resistance against anti-bacterial soap. So keep away the anti-bacterial soap myth and embrace the power of green cleansers!

  1. Prevent blocked drains– A blocked drain is something that everyone dreads and so you should do whatever it takes to keep it clog-free. You can install a strainer that will collect hair and other residues that causes blocked drains. If you throw oil and grease down the drain every time you cook, make sure you remember to pour boiling water into the drain as this prevents the oil from sticking and causing blocked drains. If you already have blocked drains, try using a plunger or pour natural products like baking soda and white vinegar (both half cups) into the drain. This should clear out all blockages and give you a free-flowing drain again!

Conclusion– Cleaning your home in the green way is not so difficult as you may think. All you need are some natural products like baking soda, white vinegar, borax, lemon juice, olive oil, washing soda and castile soap. If you think green cleaning your home is not a self job, you can always hire a professional cleaning service for gratifying results.
