It's Never too Late To Go Green

NYC, Lets go green!

You are environmentally aware. You recycle and limit the fuel you use to cut down on your carbon footprint. But you want to do more to help the environment and keep you and your Manhattan family away from harsh chemicals. Have you thought about what you're using to clean your home or business? Most commercial cleaners contain dangerous corrosives that overpower the stain but also your system. Carpet cleaners have perchlorethylene or ammonium hydroxide which can cause liver and respiratory problems. Even the tried and true cleaners that have been in use for generations--bleach and ammonia--have negative effects on living tissue.

Increase your Green Awareness

In an area the size of New York City, we inhale or ingest dangerous chemicals many times daily. The soap residue of carcinogenic cleaners is left on surfaces around Manhattan, introducing millions of people to nasty chemicals. But by becoming aware of what you use to clean your home or business, you can minimize your exposure to these chemicals.

"Green" cleaners like those produced by Nature's Source, Meyers and Green Works are becoming more popular as people in New York City and other large cities around the country realize that they have the ability to make things better for future generations. While green products vary in the exact ingredients they use and the name they go by, all green products have some things in common:

  • They are not tested on animals
  • Active Ingredients are "all natural" and non-toxic
  • They are made from recycled products or are biodegradable
  • The companies that produce them follow eco-friendly ideals

SERVPRO of Midtown Manhattan understands your need to avoid dangerous chemicals and contribute to a healthy environment. Our professional cleaners promote environmentally safe practices and products to keep New York City beautiful for future generations.
