Safe & Friendly Cleaning Products from Merry Maids
Over the past five decades, consumers and businesses have become much more thoughtful about how cleaning chemicals can affect the environment and personal health. Thanks to growing awareness of how important safe chemicals are, green cleaning products are now a multi-billion dollar industry.
At Merry Maids, we have invested in green cleaning because it is a way to better care for the planet and our customers. Our Merry Maids Essentials™ product line includes SaferChoice® approved products.
What Makes Our Green Cleaning Products “Green”?
- They Have Low VOCs: Volatile organic compounds are gases that are released by liquids or solids with varying levels of toxicity.
- They Follow SaferChoice® Standards: Every ingredient in a Safer Choice product is reviewed by the EPA for toxicity.
- They Decrease Pollution: Ingredients in these products should be sufficiently biodegradable. They are also graded for toxicity to water habitats and ecology.
Why Green Cleaning Products Are Better for the Environment
Slow biodegradation with some cleaning chemicals can be harmful to water quality and aquatic life. Ingredients in SaferChoice® products are assessed for how well they break down in the environment. Their “bioaccumulative potential” is also evaluated. These metrics are used to determine the long term impact of cleaning agents on the environment.
Green cleaning products are designed to be non-irritating, non-toxic, and biodegradable. The goal of these products is to protect personal health while reducing air and water pollution.
Why Choose Merry Maids Green Cleaning Products
One of the best reasons to choose green cleaning services for your home is personal health. For individuals with asthma or allergies, green products are a great option. When exposed to harsh, traditional cleaning chemicals, some people experience irritation to the eyes, skin, or lungs. Because green products have lower VOCs, they are less likely to trigger irritation.
