Eco-Friendly Housecleaning Service, Norcross, GA

When it comes to all of the hullabaloo about the so-called green movement, you might be thinking to yourself, why bother? You might remember back to the days when you drank water straight from the garden hose or that your parents always used Windex, 409, and Liquid Plumbr and you never had a problem. Well, the simplest reason to go green is because you can. There are plenty of green products on the market today. To dig a little deeper, you also save money, improve the air quality of your home, and do good for the environment. With all of that said, here are six green products to consider for your household.

1. CFL Bulbs
CFL bulbs aren’t as expensive as they used to be (they’re now in the $2 range) and they pay for themselves in no time. After that, watch your energy bill go down.

2. Pure Castile Soap
Pure Castile Soap can be diluted and used for a variety of cleaning duties, such as kitchen counters, windows, an all-purpose cleaner, laundry detergent, and dishwasher liquid. It’s all natural and contains no chemicals.

3. White Vinegar
White vinegar when diluted with water can also replace your Windex, eliminating another household chemical.

4. Baking Soda
Baking soda works great on stove top messes and burnt on food on your pots and pans. Pour some baking soda followed by white vinegar down clogged drains and you can toss your Liquid Plumbr.

5. Water Cooler
Rent or purchase a water cooler for your home and you’ll keep landfills from overflowing with plastic water bottles. This idea also saves money.

What green household products do you know of?

The topic of going green and living a more environmentally-friendly life has been around for years now. We do enough of damaging our environment through car pollution, excessive garbage waste, and the like – the least we can do is something along the lines of actually improving it. Even if you don’t think you have the time or energy to change your lifestyle, eating habits, or mindset, it’s not as difficult as you might think. Here are four reasons to consider going green.

1. You’ll Save Money
Switch to CFL light bulbs and they pay for themselves in roughly three months. Start using less water and you save there too. Consume more produce and you cut your grocery costs. It’s a fact that one of the best reasons to go green is that you’ll have more of it – cash that is!

2. You Improve the Environment
When you recycle your garbage you do your part to reduce landfill levels. Eat less red meat and you lessen your carbon footprint by cutting back on methane gas releases from livestock. Go paperless and you save trees.

3. You’ll Boost Your Health
Consuming a more environmentally friendly diet and your health improves by default. Cut back on red meat and your risk of contracting many different diseases goes down. Rid your household of traditional cleaning products and you breathe healthier air.

4. It’s the Right Thing To Do
We don’t own the Earth, we were only put on it. For that reason alone, it’s a good idea to tend to it in a better fashion. It may sound like an elemental point, but it’s true.

Conclusion
One of the best ways to go green is to start using or switch to a green housecleaning service. That’s where EcoMan Housecleaning fits in perfectly. It offers highly competitive rates, excellent customer service, and free estimates. If you’re interested, call 770-597-7659 and ask for David or go online to get your free estimate today.

Do you know of any other reasons to consider going green?

 

Going with a green, eco-friendly housecleaning service is one way to green your home, making it better for yourself, your children, and the environment. However, there are other ways to so so. Here are four of them.

1. Go Paperless
Sign up for paperless billing for all monthly service providers and you’ll eventually save a tree or two. Plus, you’ll have a cleaner and more organized home office to work out of.

2. Use Energy Efficient Light Bulbs
When CFL bulbs first hit the market, the cost was prohibitive in a lot of cases. Now you can get them for just a few dollars apiece. Switch out your home to CFLs and you’ll reduce your energy consumption and cut your bills.

3. Unplug Unused Appliances
Got a spare bedroom that’s rarely in use? How about a DVD player you hardly ever use? Take a quick run through your home and unplug anything that isn’t used often. Those lamps and appliances are still consuming energy even if they aren’t turned on.

4. Rent a Water Cooler
If your household drinks a lot of bottled water, all of that plastic waste does no good for the environment. Instead, consider renting (or purchasing) a water cooler. Yes, they look just like the ones in your office, only they’re good for home use. There are plans available as low as $10 per month, so you’d probably save yourself some money too.

Conclusion
And if you’re still in the decision-making process for a green housecleaning service, consider EcoMan Housecleaning. It offers low rates (sure to beat out virtually all competition), excellent customer service, free estimates, and more. Call David at 770-597-7659 or go online to get your free housecleaning estimate today.

What other ways can you think of to green your home?

 

When it comes to choosing a housecleaning service or business (whether it is green and eco-friendly or otherwise) you have a pretty important decision to make. Unless you’ll have the luxury of being at home when the person or business comes to clean, you’ll be giving someone access to your home. That can be a fairly off-putting situation but if you take the right steps, you can find a reputable service that will keep your home clean for years to come. Here are a few pointers.

1. Look for a Professional Company
Any company you choose should be bonded, licensed, and insured. Bonding protects you in case anything is stolen from your home, the insurance covers damages. The licensing part shows you that the person or company is registered to do business in your state and /or locale.

2. Research Rates
The rate for service is probably the next thing to investigate. I’ve seen some companies charge as much as $150 per cleaning, and the initial service is even more expensive. Take the time and get quotes from at least three companies. You might be surprised at the price differential. Plenty of companies will offer free estimates – you just enter in some information about your home online and you’ll receive your quote via email.

3. Ask for References
Any business that isn’t willing to provide you with references from past or current clients probably isn’t worth considering. And you should follow up and contact them for details. Ask about customer service (did they show up on time?), level of cleanliness (is the home truly clean after service?), and anything else relevant you can think of.

4. Attend Initial Cleaning
If you can work it into your weekly work schedule, try to attend the first cleaning. I don’t know that I’d follow the person around, although you’re well within your rights if you wish. By being there, you can immediately inspect how clean your home is, point out anything you are particular about, and get any other issues ironed out. Plus any reputable company will probably show up early for the first service so they can introduce themselves and allow you to get to know them a bit.

Conclusion
These are only a few of the things you should look for when choosing a housecleaning service, but this will get you off on the right foot. In the midst of looking for a housecleaning company, consider EcoMan Housecleaning. It offers very low rates, stellar customer service, free estimates, and most furniture will be moved and cleaned around and under. It uses non-toxic all natural cleaners, making for a safer environment for you, your children, and your pets.
