House Cleaning Service Turns Spring Cleaning Into Green Cleaning

Share Article

As the only housekeeping service that is Green Clean Certified™, Maid Brigade uses green cleaning chemicals that comply with Green Seal, Inc. standards for a safe and comprehensive cleaning.

We performed our due diligence to research the best green products and practices, and incorporate those into our complete green cleaning system.

As Americans begin catching on about the importance of 'going green,' Maid Brigade™ is applying the green way of life into its spring cleaning practices. Considered the leader in professional house cleaning services, Maid Brigade is contributing to a cleaner environment with the Green Clean Certified™ system. Using cleaning solutions and products certified by Green Seal, Inc., Maid Brigade's franchisees must complete extensive training before implementing the system.

"The decision to offer a green cleaning service was driven by our commitment to our customers and our employees," said Howard Purdy, Maid Brigade's Vice President of Operations. "We performed our due diligence to research the best green products and practices, and incorporate those into our complete green cleaning system."

Chemical Cleaning Threats
The amount of poisonous toxins in chemical cleaners is unsettling. Harsh cleaning solutions can cause health problems, particularly in those individuals who already suffer from an ailment such as asthma, allergies and chronic bronchitis. While chemical house cleaning products affect people of all ages, children are especially at risk. Additionally, chemical cleaning products wreak havoc on the environment.

Green Cleaning Products
Maid Brigade uses allergy-free and anti-bacterial cloths and mops that last longer than paper products or cotton cloths. Utilizing innovative microfiber technology, the multi-surface cloths are made from a scientific weave of polyester and polyamide, and the mops consist of microfiber pads to guarantee a clean and spotless surface.

Maid Brigade takes vacuuming to the next level of green cleaning: Vacuums are certified through the Carpet & Rug Institute's Green Label Program--a series of testing that determines factors such as a vacuum's stringent soil removal, dust containment and carpet appearance retention. Maid Brigade's eco-friendly vacuums remove 99.9 percent of particles measuring one micron and larger, such as mold, pet dander, pollen and dust mites.

With so many pollutants harming Mother Earth, Maid Brigade proudly supports healthier, greener living. At long last, customers can take in a breath of fresh air, because this year, spring cleaning is green cleaning at Maid Brigade.
