Eco-friendly and safe cleaning products like Procter & Gamble and Spartan Chemical source only the safest components in their products.
What we appreciate about the products we use is that both Procter & Gamble

environmental experts, the average household contains 62 toxic chemicals (source). Run-of-the-mill household
cleaners contain aggressive chemicals like ammonia, sodium hydroxide, and
2-butoxyethanol, which appears in popular multi purpose cleaners. These
chemicals can appear in window washers, spot cleaners, oven cleaners and more.
They pose no
risk in small amounts, but if used constantly overtime they may pose serious
health risks. As for our cleaning process, one of the things we do is ensure
that all windows remain open during cleaning so the air can circulate from the
outside in, essentially reducing any harmful fumes that might be in the air.
professional cleaners means you don’t have to worry about what is in your
cleaning products, we do the worrying for you. When we’re not there to lend a
hand, however, these safe and all-natural cleaning solutions and green cleaning tips we’ll get the job
done in the safest way possible:
1) Glass and Mirror Cleaning
polishing agents and window cleaners contain ammonia. It’s a powerful irritant,
and those with constant exposure to ammonia (when inhaled) have higher risk of
developing chronic bronchitis and asthma. This is especially harmful to the
elderly and people with asthma. Instead of window cleaners use 4 tablespoons of
lemon juice mixed with half a gallon of water. Alternatively, use some rubbing
alcohol and witch hazel.
2) Furniture Shine
polishing cleaners are made up of petroleum distillates and solvents, both of
which are hazardous when ingested. Be wary of keeping these around the house if
you have young children. A good substitute is a mix of two parts olive oil with
one part lemon juice and rub it against furniture using a soft fiber cloth.
3) Oven and Bathroom Cleaners, and Mildew Removers
these cleaners contain chlorine or sodium hydroxide. Chlorine can be a
respiratory irritant at an acute level, and can be a serious thyroid disrupter
(source). Sodium Hydroxide is corrosive
and can cause serious burns. Instead use baking soda or vinegar to clean things
like toilet bowls or remove mildew and clean grime.
