Green and Natural Carpet Cleaning
by John Braun
floor and therefore would be in contact more often with the residue of these strong
chemicals. There have been cases where children have become ill because of these
chemicals. Another reason to avoid harsh chemicals is because of their negative
impact on the environment. If they are disposed of in an improper manner, they will
pollute waterways and harm wildlife.

It is ideal to get rid of stains on your carpet as soon as they happen. This is because
it is a lot easier to clean stains off the carpet immediately than it is if they are soaked
into the carpet for a period of time. You can usually remove them by using an all
natural cleaner.

Many times it can be more cost effective for you to actually make your own cleaning
solution rather than purchasing these cleaners. Two notable homemade cleaners
which are very effective at removing stains include baking soda and vinegar. Vinegar
mixtures are most effective when they are used on newly stained spots. The baking
soda is appropriate for stains that have set in longer. Simply apply the baking soda at
the spot and allow it to sit for a few minutes, after which you can vacuum it away.

Interestingly, more and more green spot cleaners are finding their way to store
shelves, which use all natural constituents to successfully eliminate stains from
carpets. One such product is EcoMist carpet cleaner. It is not only safe and non-toxic,
but removes stains in a very effective manner. There are also other good products in
your natural grocery stores or online that perform wonders at removing stains
without the side effects of strong chemicals.

To hire a professional carpet cleaning service or use any commercial cleaning device
does not mean you have to use harsh chemicals to do the work. Carpet cleaning
companies that use green and natural products to their job are becoming more
common. Therefore do not be fooled into believing that only strong chemicals will
effectively remove any stains. Just do a little research about any company you
intend to hire for your carpet cleaning.

On the other hand, if you choose to rent carpet cleaning equipment to do it yourself,
it's a good idea to rinse off the equipment of any previous chemicals that were used
with it. This will guarantee that the cleaning you do will not inadvertently place
chemicals on your carpet.

Finally, making a little effort to use green and natural products for your cleaning is a
good way to stay safe from harmful chemicals. If that's not enough, using
homemade cleaners will save you money while you're at it.
