Green Clean's technicians use nontoxic, biodegradable products that are free of harsh chemicals and petroleum derivatives to clean homes from top to bottom. They employ microfiber cloths—which can be washed in an energy-efficient machine—instead of waste-producing paper towels. In addition to Seventh Generation and Ecover solutions, staffers freshen up living or office spaces with tried-and-true ingredients such as baking soda and lemon juice, and add fragrant essential oils for their natural cleansing properties. They also clean carpets with HEPA-filter vacuums that reduce airborne allergens and fine-particle exhaust.
The crew usually begins their weekly, biweekly, or monthly regimens with deep cleaning that includes wiping down surfaces, vacuuming upholstery, and dusting the knights who guard TV remotes. They also provide one-time-only cleanings before or after parties.
