Cleaning carpets with eco-friendly methods

After a winter of slush and snow, homeowners prepare for Spring cleaning, especially by calling Green Choice Carpet of Brooklyn. Even a mild exposure to the usual industrial carpet cleaners can cause eye irritation and skin sensitivities for family and pets.

But today, many carpet cleaning companies are using eco-friendly methods to ensure safe and clean homes. Consumer concerns about chemicals prompted companies to now clean with naturally occurring enzyme-based cleansers including common table salt, antimicrobial salts, citric acid, and soda ash. Enzymes are a protein molecule that speed up the reactions of other chemicals. Enzymatic cleaners break down the chemical bonds in the stain. Many stains found in carpets are organically based, such as food, grass, soil, pet accidents, blood, even cigarette smoke. An enzyme based cleaner is a safe alternative without the side effects of typical cleaners.

Enzyme based cleaners have no corrosive or toxic side effects which makes them a preferred choice for homeowners. The environmental impact is lower and they do not affect indoor air quality.

Before you do you make plans for Spring cleaning, take some time to research and find out your different options when you clean your carpets.
