Can Carpet Cleaning Chemicals be Harmful or Toxic?

Do You Wonder If The Chemicals In Carpet Cleaning Can Be Harmful?

The answer to this question is yes and no! The fact of the matter is that a lot of carpet cleaning chemicals are made with strong cleaning chemicals.  Butyloxyethanol and Ethylene Glycol Butyl Ether are just a couple of the common ingredients found in many Carpet Cleaning products. These chemicals should not be inhaled or come into contact with bare skin not to mention their affect on the environment.

The reality is no matter how good we rinse the carpet with our big machines some chemical residue still remains. Is this really condusive to a healthy indoor environment? Probably not! Some people are certainly affected by these products right to the point where it will make them sick. Over time people can develop all sorts of sensitivities that are often times related to strong cleaning chemicals. Most people aren’t directly affected by these products so they don’t even think about it. But what are the long term health affects? Well we don’t really know so why not use products that we know are safe for ourselves and the environment.

Stay tuned for my next blog and I will talk about how Green Carpet Cleaning Products actually DO work.
