Choosing an eco friendly company for carpet cleaning in Adelaide
All too often it’s only after carpet cleaning that people experience allergic reactions. This could either be because
of improper cleaning methods or due to the chemicals used in cleaning carpets. In fact some of the chemicals
used by these companies are extremely toxic and can cause harm to children and pets. Common problems
associated with these chemicals include dizziness, fatigue, and nausea. There are several companies that use
clean and much less toxic methods for carpet cleaning in Adelaide. They use natural products and safe
techniques to clean your carpet.
Natural ingredients used for cleaning carpets include corn cobs (powdered), vinegar, borax, baking soda etc.
Some of the natural materials are very effective in cleaning and are even used for commercial cleaning. Baking
soda, for example, is a natural cleaner, deodorizer, and softener. Vinegar can clean grease, mildew, odor, stains
and wax build up very easily. Lemon (also popularly used for cleaning) is the strongest among food acids and can
remove household bacteria. Corn starch too is very effective in cleaning and polishing rugs and windows. These
materials are biodegradable and hence cause no harm to people, even as the carpets are cleaned effectively.
Chances of mold growth are also kept to minimal as most use dry cleaning methods. It’s a popular myth that
these methods aren’t effective. While they may not be ideal for all professional cleaning, these techniques are
quite useful and can be as effective as chemical cleaning in many situations.
These ingredients are powerful enough to remove tea, and coffee stains and also remove pet dander, and smoke
odor. Delicate carpet fibers too are protected with these techniques. You don’t have to worry about the
chemicals discoloring the carpet. Offices and homes where traffic is high are ideal for these systems. And if
you’re looking for fragrance, lavender oil is used. The oil is effective to remove the smell of pet mess.
Before you choose carpet cleaners in Adelaide, make sure you ask them that they use safe products for their
carpet cleaning methods. Also ask the company about how they would handle the water that’s used for cleaning.
If the professional does not have a system to dispose of the water where harsh chemical must be used for
treatment it’s best to avoid the company.
