How to Green your Carpet Cleaning in St. Charles and St. Louis MO

 


One of the problems with indoor carpet — other than offgassing of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in some synthetic weaves — is that they are the ideal home for mites, molds and dust.

Vacuuming is your first line of defense. But carpet eventually means carpet cleaners, many of which contain the infamous dry cleaning agent, perchloroethylene (perc). We've written about this substance in the past. Another common nasty is naphthalene, a possibly carcinogenic solvent linked to red blood cell damage.

Beyond the potential cancer-causing risks of both perc and naphthalene, many people report dizziness, nausea and irritation from the fumes. Pets are equally affected. Neither substance has any place in a healthy home.

If you decide to hire a professional cleaner, inquire about plant-based alternative solvents and insist on nontoxic steam extraction methods. There are green carpet cleaning companies in St. Charles and St. Louis, MO available for same day or next day service. Their products are generally agreed to be safe for people and pets. Green Life Carpet Cleaning of St. Louis is one of these professional carpet cleaners in St. Charles and St. Louis MO that provide a healthy and organic based cleaning system.

Postpone a general cleaning with spot maintenance. Here you have some natural options: salt for mud, dirt and red wine; club soda for coffee stains; and cornstarch or cornmeal for grease. To control odors, liberally sprinkle carpeting with baking soda and allow to sit overnight before vacuuming. Direct sunlight is also a great deodorant. A couple of hours in the sun does wonders to freshen bathroom mats and area rugs. Green Life Carpet Cleaning of St. Louis also offers affordable maintenance programs that help keep your carpet clean year round.

There are steps you can take to keep your carpets cleaned. However a professional carpet cleaning is always recommended, and if you are looking for carpet cleaning in St. Charles and St. Louis MO, Green Life Carpet Cleaning is an excellent choice for Green carpet cleaning.
