Maid Brigade, a company committed to providing environmentally-friendly home cleaning services throughout Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Fairfield counties, is the only Green Clean Certified house cleaning company in the region.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside a typical home is, on average, two to five times more polluted than the air outside-largely due to household cleaners.
Maid Brigade’s exclusive Green Clean Certified system is a comprehensive cleaning program that includes green cleaning solutions that are certifies by Green Seal, a non-profit organization that sets the standards for preventing the usage of toxic chemicals, noxious fumes and wasted resources. Vacuums are certified through the non-profit Carpet and Rug Institute’s (CRI) Green Label testing program. They remove 99.9% of particulates and asthma and allergy triggers, including mold, pet hair, pet dander, pollen and dust.
“Global warming, greenhouse gasses, allergies, headaches, respiratory problems and autism are all very real. As global citizens, we must all be aware of how we are treating ourselves and the environment around us,” said Robin Murphy, president of Maid Brigade.
“We believe that when our clients’ homes are being cleaned, they should not suffer because of topic products being used. Maid Brigade is dedicated to providing services and utilizing products that eliminate added toxic pollution,” Murphy added.
Maid Brigade’s staff also uses microfiber mops and cleaning cloths-which last longer than traditional string mops and cotton cloths-and work effectively with less cleaning product to minimize environmental impact.
It’s no longer just a trend. Going green has effectively transitioned from niche to mainstream.
