3 Reasons Why You Should Use Natural Cleaning Products as a Pet Owner

There are a lot of big brand cleaning products out there that promise quick and easy cleaning power when it comes to house cleaning and odour removal. But do we really know what chemicals and ingredients make up these cleaning products? Those hard-to-read ingredients and chemicals on product labels could not only be harmful to both your own health and pet’s health.

That’s why Jaiko uses a variety of the latest indoor safe agents and green cleaning products to thoroughly clean surfaces for our house cleaning services. In particular, we use green cleaning products from Benefect, a company that provides a line of organic cleaning products.

If you haven’t already transitioned to green cleaning products to help keep your home clean, here are three reasons why you should:

 

1. SAFER HOME

Certain cleaning products release harmful chemicals, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals can cause serious health issues for both our pets and ourselves, which is why it’s important to always read labels on household products before buying them. Try to avoid buying cleaning products that contain VOCs at all costs.

You can also use DIY green cleaning products to ensure that you are keeping your home clean with safety as a priority. Check out this article from Fluent Woof for tips on how to keep your home clean and safe for you and your pets with DIY recipes.

 

2. BETTER AIR QUALITY

Toxins found in harsh cleaning products contribute to many respiratory related issues.

Our pets are more exposed and sensitive to certain cleaning products than people, because they are closer to the ground where particles from cleaning product toxins sit and they are constantly breathing in carcinogenic chemicals from harsh products, or absorbing them through their paw pads and skin.

Switching to greener and cleaner alternatives, such as the products in this article, ensures that our pets are not exposed to harmful toxins in the air, thus improving air quality for both our pets and ourselves.

 

3. EASIER CLEAN UP

There are hundreds of different cleaning products you could keep in your home. It seems as though companies have a different cleaning products for every single surface. Using all these cleaning products can be time consuming and can expose you and your pets to many harmful chemicals in the process.

When you use green products, such as natural cleaning products or DIY cleaning products, you can take on several cleaning jobs without switching products as you clean your home. For example, vinegar can act as an effective cleaner for a variety of surfaces throughout your home, such as windows, countertops, sinks, and more. Read more about the different ways you can use vinegar for green cleaning.

Using green cleaning products saves you time and money in the long run, and as a pet owener this can be extremely benefitial, as you can spend more time and money on your pet as opposed to your cleaning efforts.

Here at Jaiko Cleaning Services, we only use top of the line green cleaning products, to ensure that all of our clients and their pets receive quality and safe home cleaning services.
