Guided by a commitment to health, safety, and environmental preservation, EcoMaids of Des Moines dispatches crews armed with Green Seal–certified cleaning products and HEPA–filtered vacuums. During their extensive training, tidying pros learn to prevent cross-contamination by following a cleaning process that trades harsh chemicals for microfiber tools, which use less water and grab more grime than traditional mops and sponges. After attacking dust bunnies and more rare dust dodo birds with dry cloths, the cleaners sanitize counters, sinks, and other germ-prone surfaces with EPA–recognized disinfectants. Equipped with a multilevel filtration system, the staff's vacuums evict pent-up dirt from carpets while keeping air safe for clients with asthma and allergies. Cleaning-crew members also shrink their carbon footprint by recycling paper, glass, and plastic and by washing their laundry in high-efficiency washing machines instead of burning their clothing after every use.
