The Eco-Friendly Guide to Cleaning your Home [Infographic]

Every day, homeowners and landlords use a wide variety of cleaning products to spray, scrub, buff and polish our properties in the efforts of creating a cleaner, safer and welcoming environment within which to live and work. Unfortunately, whilst these cleaning agents may leave our homes looking sparkling on the surface, it can be shocking when you scratch the veneer and unearth the detrimental impact these cleaning agents can have on your health and the environment as a whole.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outside air due to the accumulation of volatile organic compound (VOC) levels caused by chemical cleaning agents. Moreover, every year over 100,000 marine lives are killed as a direct result of the plastic packaging pollution related to commercial cleaning products. Combine these numbers with the additional marine and animal fatalities caused by toxic pollution (when synthetic cleaning chemicals enter our natural waterways) and the result is a dramatic decrease in wildlife numbers and the degrading function of local, national and global ecosystems.

Despite these dire circumstances, there are several steps which homeowners and landlords alike can implement to improve their health and to safeguard the environment for the future. Using eco-friendly cleaning agents within your home can improve air quality, reduce your personal carbon footprint and inspire others to adopt environmentally conscious cleaning practices. To help you do so EP Cleaners have created an extensive resource, which will equip you with everything you need to know in order to clean your home in an efficient, affordable, and eminently eco-friendly manner.
