The Advantages of Green Carpet Cleaning

Green carpet cleaning integrates harmless, non-toxic, eco-friendly substances into the carpet cleaning process, thereby saving water and ensuring your family’s health while simultaneously protecting the environment. There are several advantages to green carpet cleaning, and A Personal Touch Carpet Cleaning in Littleton covers them here.


Compared to traditional carpet-cleaning methods, the green approach is more affordable both in the short and long-term. Instead of investing in costly cleaning agents, green cleaning can be accomplished with inexpensive, natural substances like vinegar, olive oil, and lemon juice – many or all of which you already have in your home.  Also, when done right, green cleaning can cover a larger area in a short amount of time, equating to a lower cost. Plus, going green can deliver longer-lasting, lusher carpet, helping you reduce cleaning frequency.


Green carpet cleaning means no potentially harmful chemicals, which is good news for everyone – especially children, the elderly, allergy sufferers, and anyone with immune system issues. Also, the absence of these chemicals means not having to air out the carpet and your rooms. Plus, green carpet cleaning reduces the amount of irritants that collect in the carpet and linger in the air: dust, pet dander, pollen, and the like. This equates to more fresh air and easier breathing. And in more good news, green carpet cleaning is proven to reduce the possibility of mold forming in carpet.

Lower water/energy consumption

Green carpet cleaning involves a simple, eco-conscious substitution of natural cleaning substances for water and chemicals. Whereas chemical cleaners require the burning of fossil fuels for their creation and processing (which in turn requires energy consumption), green carpet cleaning puts no such strain on the environment. Instead, the green approach necessitates only minimal investments of water and energy, thus shrinking your carbon footprint.


Traditional carpet cleaning methods make heavy use of water and chemicals, resulting in a drying-time of around 24 hours and rendering the corresponding area of your home unavailable for an entire day. On the other hand, a carpet that’s cleaned via green methods dries faster. Not only is this beneficial for homeowners, it’s also a big boon to businesses, especially those with heavy foot traffic: banks, stores, office buildings, etc. The absence of chemicals and the quickness with which green carpet cleaning dries allows a business to operate in parallel with carpet cleaning, instead of requiring a cleaning crew to wait until after-hours or the weekend to get the job done.


It isn’t just humans who are at risk from traditional carpet-cleaning methods. Pets can suffer too, especially since they spend more time “interacting” with the carpet. The green-clean option ensures that your pets avoid exposure to deleterious chemicals, and it makes your life as a pet owner easier too, since you no longer have to worry about relocating your cat or dog every time you clean your carpet.
