We have adapted the traditional, professional speed cleaning methods and adopted an effective, green approach. We use appropriate and effective green products plus and the most modern and least abrasive tools. We have six cleaning products that are both effective and safe for the environment and the surfaces of your home. Our method and products are versatile and one rag can be used on every surface, enabling us to clean more surfaces with a single pass. We have an extensive checklist and do not charge additional fees for extra tasks with the exception of fridge cleaning. We do our best to have the same team member (or sometimes two) assigned to each house every time. We work with all of our team extensively and communicate frequently about the specifics of every account and other cleaning minutia to ensure we provide the best customer service possible.
The Science of Cleaning
Green cleaning works because it’s based on simple chemistry, i.e. the pH scale. Acidity and alkalinity is a measure of how many (H+) or (OH-) ions a material contains. Ions react with grease, dirt, and scum in the home, dissolving them for removal with water.
Each whole number difference on the 0-14 scale represents a tenfold change.Simple, age old, non-toxic products are as concentrated as their toxic, commercial counterparts.
A solution having a pH that is lower than 7 is acidic. Acidic cleaners attack and dissolve alkaline soils, like mineral deposits or rust, breaking them down and making them easier to remove (for example, vinegar or citrus). Acids are powerful solvents that react with sealants, and so we only use vinegar on glass and never on porous stone or wood floors.
A solution with a pH that is higher than 7 is basic. Alkaline substances are typically react less with household surfaces and therefore are used as all-purpose cleaners.
