We have adapted the traditional, professional speed cleaning methods and adopted an effective, greener approach over our 10 years in business. We use holistic cleaning products that are effective and safe. We also provide totally eco-friendly cleaning. 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 product can be used on every surface, enabling us to clean all surfaces. If you are chemically sensitive we can use soap alone, but for most homes we incorporate CLR, Barkeeper's Friend, and Rubbing Alcohol, the latter of the two not being totally eco. The secret of a clean house is not only the proper chemicals used but also thorough dusting, vacuuming, and floors done by hand and baseboards done every cleaning. We work hard to clean every surface in the home. We have an extensive checklist and do not charge additional fees for extra tasks with the exception of fridge cleaning. We want even the pickiest customers to be thrilled with our cleaning. If there is anything we can do to improve, just let us know and we are more than happy to oblige almost any request, most without additional charge.
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.
