How To Make Your Home More "Green"

flower on towelThere are a number of individuals out there who are backing the movement to make the world a “greener” place. This means that they are taking measures to cut down on the chemical use, trash waste, and other issues that could plague the earth. It’s a great thing. Now a number of people are working to make their homes more “green” as well. With so many factors involved with cleaning your home, how can you do this? At The Maids Dallas, we can show you how!

One of the things we pride ourselves on is using products that are free of harmful chemicals. We believe that having a green home is important, and helping you take the steps to make sure you, your family, your home, and your environment is healthy is a top priority of ours. This is why we want to provide you with some tips on how you can make your home green.

Use Products Free of Chemicals

We aren’t the only ones who can use products free of harmful chemicals! Many of the products that are normally used to clean the home have various chemicals in them. Unfortunately, as we spray these products with no regard as to what is in them, we are actually putting everyone in the home — pets included — in danger. By using products that don’t have these chemicals, you can make for better in home air quality and avoid any unnecessary dangers.

Use Cloths

It’s possible for you to eliminate the use of cleaning products completely if you use micro-fiber cloths. These cloths are designed specifically to attract dust. They can be used to clean off various surfaces and if damp, can be perfect for glass, ceramics, wood, stainless steel, and more. Then, once you are done using it, you can wash it and use it again. No need to throw anything away.

Go Paperless

This may seem like just a way to protect your environment, but it is much more than that. Remember, you are trying to have a green home, but you also want a clean home. You can accomplish both if you sign up to receive your statements online. This provides multiple benefits. First, you will be able to help in reducing the amount of paper being used to print your statements. Second, you can eliminate the amount of mess that accumulates in your home.

Remove Your Shoes at the Door

Do you know the amount of dirt, toxins, pollutants, and other bacteria that can build up on a person’s shoes? When you walk into the door and walk around your home with your shoes on, you are doing two things: increasing the chance for this dust and dander to spread, and getting your floors dirty. If you take your shoes off at the door—and have your visitors do the same—you can limit the amount of bacteria and dirt in your home, and help prevent stains and sticky areas on your carpet and floors.

Seal Your Gaps

When you are running your air conditioner or heater, odds are you don’t think twice about it. As long as you are comfortable, you are happy. However, there are some things that could be making your heating or air conditioning unit work harder, forcing your home to use more energy. Some of these factors are gaps in your windows and doors. These gaps can allow your indoor air out while letting the outside air in, impacting how your units work. Not only that, but it can also allow dirt to enter your home, making cleaning a tougher chore.

Use Buckets for Cleaning

If you are cleaning an area of your home that requires a good amount of water, don’t just leave the water on while you are doing it. Conserve. Put the water into a bucket or bowl and use that water to help clean. This can help you save money on water bills and still allow you to effectively clean your home.

No More Using Paper Towels

People spend a lot of money on paper towels when they go shopping. Unfortunately, not only does this deplete your money, but it is also harmful to the environment due to the use of paper. As an alternative, you can use washable, reusable cloths the clean your home. They can often be more effective in picking up dirt and dust, and all you have to do is wash them and use them again the next time you need them.
