There 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.
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.
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
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.
