“Green cleaning refers to using cleaning methods and products with environmentally friendly ingredients to preserve human health and environmental quality.Green cleaning techniques and products avoid the use of chemically reactive and toxic cleaning products which contain various toxic chemicals, some of which emit volatile organic compounds causing respiratory and dermatological problems.Green cleaning can also describe the way residential and industrial cleaning products are manufactured, packaged and distributed. If the manufacturing process is environmentally friendly and the products are biodegradable, then the term “green” or “Eco-friendly” may apply.Green cleaning is behavioral as well as simply using healthy and environmentally friendly products. Consumers are being made aware of the ways in which green cleaning is most-effectively used.”Source: Wikipedia.

FibermarkMTC’s thoughts are that “Green Cleaning” is the way all cleaning should be performed. The problem we as cleaners are faced with is the “green” products just do not clean nearly as well as our regular cleaning products. Coincidentally, almost all companies have made huge changes to make their lines of products s green as possible. California has made it much more difficult to actually purchase products that can harm the environment, ozone and the health of people and animals alike. Essentially, all of the good stuff us cleaners relied upon have been discontinued or outlawed by now. Dry cleaners, solvents, aerosol products, oil based products are all being replaced with items which are more water soluble and easily rinsed by water-based products. Cleaning products in general as a whole have been changing for a better and safer environment for over the past ten years.

Being in this business for over 37 years my clients trust when I explain the following. In order to remove the red wine, the dog urine or feces stains, permanent marker from rugs and furniture, we have to use products which would not always be considered 100% environmentally friendly. Although, we “ALWAYS” completely rinse and flush out the products in which we are using to leave as little product behind as possible. We do work with a line of 100% environmentally friendly products if desired. However, please realize if you do not wish any other product used, our success will be a little more limited. But, your wishes will be carried out as desired. We work for you!

Clients with specific health concerns, persons with asthma, allergies, sensitivities to cleaning products, animal dander, fragrances, over wetness causing musty smells, as well as dust in the air are all issues that all of our technicians concern themselves with, when working for you. ALWAYS inform us of any particular concerns you may have before we begin cleaning. It is extremely important to us to make sure your business with FibermarkMTC is as the absolute best and stress free experience as possible.
Please call us if you have any questions or concerns concerning our cleaning methods and products.
