Indoor Air Quality and Green Cleaning

Not many people realize that the most polluted air is the air inside their own homes. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has concluded that indoor air quality is 7 times the pollution level than the air outdoors. Considering that people spend 90% of their time indoors and 60% in their own home should clearly demonstrate why we should be concerned.  The major source of contaminates in your home comes from common house cleaning chemicals used on a regular basis. The EPA has said that problems related to poor air quality lead to increases in illness, fatigue and respiratory problems. Children, infants and the elderly are more susceptible to harmful contaminates in the air. Over 4.8 million children in this country are affected by asthma and this number is growing.

Maid Brigade’s Green Clean Certified system will lower these harmful contaminates in the air in your home. All our house cleaning products meet the strict standards being set by organizations such as Green Seal, EPA and Design for the Environment. Our vacuums are certified by the Carpet and Rug institute and remove 99.9% of harmful airborne particulates.  Our Microfiber cloths and mops reduce the amount of house cleaning solutions used and are able to lift and trap dirt and moisture instead of just pushing it around like conventional cloth or paper towels. They are also color coded to prevent cross contamination between different areas of the house. Maid Brigade’s mission is to improve the overall quality of the air we breath for the health of our customers and employees.
