Did you know that cleaning your floors with conventional floor cleaners can compromise your health? A study carried out by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) determined that indoor levels of pollutants, including styrene, chloroform, and formaldehyde, range between 2 to 50 times higher indoors than outdoors, due in part to the use of conventional household cleaning products. Consider this – when you clean your floor using these cleaning products, you’re basically just spreading potentially toxic chemicals all over the largest surface area of your household. A surprising number of floor cleaning ingredients include toxins that can cause allergic reactions, respiratory infections, coughing, dizziness and even a loss of concentration. The fact is that these cleaning products aren’t even necessary. With the right floor cleaning tools, you can efficiently clean your floors without using harsh chemicals, wet (just use water with a few drops of dish soap) or dry.
