Making the right, safe, Choice
for your cleaning business
Several studies cite occupational illnesses for those who work in the cleaning industry. Illnesses range from short-term effects such as eye injuries, skin irritations, shortness of breath; to long-term impacts such as adult asthma (known as occupational asthma), COPD, allergic contact dermatitis, hormonal/reproductive issues, and cancers.
With a wide range of chemical cleaners on the market plus the use of multiple cleaners within a day, it is a daunting challenge to pinpoint which particular chemicals pose the most significant toxicity. Many scientists believe they have some answers. Fingers are being pointed most directly at parabens, phthalates, methylisothiazolinone (synthetic preservative), and petroleum-derived cleaners.
These chemicals are predominately found in cleaning sprays and air fresheners, and fragrances in countless cleaning products.
Before WWI, all-natural soaps were the standard for household cleaners, laundering, and personal care. Human ingenuity created synthetic soaps during WWI as ingredients were not as easy to come by. With the development of machines that wash our clothes for us and do our dishes, these all-natural soaps left behind unwanted residues. The human capacity to create and adapt to new situations gave rise to new forms of laundry soaps (now called detergents) and detergents for washing dishes.
The boom of synthetic laundry detergents led to an array of cleaning products manufactured with artificial, chemical ingredients. At this juncture, questions are arising as to the safety of the chemical ingredients comprising a host of cleaning products (and personal care products as well).
How do you know you are making the right and safe choice of cleaning products for your cleaning business? What is the right choice? Can you trust the data accumulated regarding the chemicals found in cleaning products, or are there hidden agendas to the reporting? That is for you to decide.
