Allergy-Friendly Cleaning

Did you know you might not be cleaning as effectively as you could be? To get rid of dust, pet dander, and germs – most people use strong chemicals, harsh scents, and harmful ingredients. These products can not only make your allergies worse, but they also aren’t safe for your family, pets, and home. 

Most people think cleaning gets rid of variants that make your allergies worse. But allergens in cleaning supplies can sometimes exacerbate those symptoms and make your sneezing, sniffling, and itchy eyes worse. Don’t worry, that’s where we come in! We’re a thoroughly trained, friendly group of routinely scheduled home cleaners, and we use the best cleaning products for allergies. We’re passionate about using earth-friendly and non-toxic products that are not only safe for your home but also safe for the environment. 

The standard cleaning products you might be using in your home contain dangerous chemicals, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are linked to respiratory illnesses, asthma, and allergies. VOCs are commonly found in cleaning products and can be disguised as ammonia or bleach. 

So how do you clean your home safely? We’ll give you a few of the tips and tricks we use for our superior regular cleaning services in NH and ME. 

  1. Use a HEPA vacuum

Our team uses HEPA vacuums which contain a multi-level filtration system. HEPA is known for high-efficiency particulate air. Vacuums that have HEPA filtration installed in it are able to trap tiny particles of dirt, pollen, dust, and pet dander that you can’t see. Instead of releasing the allergens back into the air in your home, the filtration system traps the particles. 

  1. Use all-natural cleaning products

We’re committed to using earth-friendly cleaning products to ensure highly effective and safe cleaning. To ensure our products are safe, we make sure they are certified by Green Seal or another organization. A Green Seal shows the product is free of reproductive toxins, carcinogens, and other harmful ingredients. We also only buy products from retailers that are environmentally responsible and ensure none of the products are tested on animals. Lastly, we make sure all products are biodegradable, all-natural, and safe for your home, children, pets, and our planet. 

  1. Ditch the paper towels

One of the easiest switches to green cleaning and allergen-friendly cleaning is to ditch the paper towels. This might be hard for some of you – but we promise it’s worth it! We use microfiber cloths instead of traditional cloths or paper towels. Microfiber cloths can absorb spills and liquid. They can also trap dust and allergens better than paper towels can. The tiny fibers in microfiber are ideal for appliances, counters, and stovetops. Plus, when you’re done cleaning, you can just throw it in the washer!
