How Important is it to Use Green Cleaning Products?

Here at Green Home Cleaning, we pride ourselves in using all organic cleaning products. You may wonder, how important is it really to use organic products? More important than you may think! There are many benefits to switching to organic, not only for your personal health but for the health of our planet.

In some instances, the harmful effects of using non-organic products can be very apparent, such as headaches or skin rashes. The usage of conventional cleaning products can actually lead to a higher level of pollution indoors, due to the fact that they contain VOCs, or Volatile Organic Compounds. Don't be fooled by the word "organic" in VOC- these are harmful! They have been associated with damage to the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system, as well as causing irritation to the eyes, nose, and throat. Some VOCs have even been shown to cause asthma and cancer. Switching to organic products will ensure better air quality for you and your family, including your pets!

Making the change to organic is also important from an environmental standpoint. These chemicals are not confined to us and our homes- they inevitably end up increasing air pollution as well as water pollution. This can cause an ongoing string of problems for wildlife- not only in aquatic life, but in every animal involved in the food chain that eventually comes into contact with these harmful chemicals.

Think green cleaning is too expensive? Think again! There are many organic products that are perfect for all types of cleaning purposes that are extremely budget-friendly, including baking soda, lemons, and vinegar. In addition to this, many typical cleaners that contain toxic chemicals can actually negatively affect many household items, causing you to have to replace them sooner.

Whether you're looking to lead a healthier life, decrease your carbon footprint, or simply save a few bucks on your next cleaning haul, there are so many great reasons to make the organic switch!
