Chemical vs Eco friendly

Chemical vs Eco friendly

Chemical products include a range of items for a range of personal and household cleaning jobs. These include adhesive sealants, plastics, textiles, agricultural chemicals, rubber compounding products and graphic arts products. They are widely used by companies that do house cleaning Boston, house cleaning Dorchester and residential cleaning Milton services.

The question is, how safe are the substances that are used by chemical companies? To be more specific, are they exactly what one would call “eco-friendly” in the sense that they can be used without causing significant harm to the natural environment?

Chemical substances are not necessary.


The fact is that strong chemicals are not necessary for making products that will do a great cleaning job; there are plenty of eco-friendly cleaning products whose ingredients are natural and harmless. Having them is a great thing because you do have to worry about the internal environment, even if the external one is perfectly capable of taking care of itself. Harmful chemicals can pollute the air inside your house or office, making it unsafe to breathe for family members, pets, guests, tenants and employees by causing diseases like cancer, chemical burns and asthma. Toxins can also enter your drinking water — eventually ending up in the sewage system — or may also corrode wooden, metal or plastic surfaces, so that you have to spend large sums of money remaking or replacing them.

When you go out and buy cleaning products for your household or business, check to see that they do not contain the following chemicals:

• sodium hypochlorite

• phosphates

• silica

• methylene chloride

• xylene

• trisodium nitrilotriacetate

• 2-butoxyethanol

• aklylphenol ethoxylates (APEs)

Eco-friendly sources of energy


Since chemicals are ruled out, we also have to turn to different sources of energy. As things are, such resources are not too difficult to find. Among the inexhaustible (incapable of being used up) or renewable (capable of being replaced) energy sources are:

• hydroelectric power

• wind energy

• solar energy

• geothermal energy

• bio-energy

• wave power

• tidal power

These energy supplies are everywhere, so it costs little to find, extract and put them to use. Organic material, for instance, can store the sun’s light in the form of chemical energy. Wood, manure, straw and sugarcane are among the many agricultural by-products that can be used as energy sources. Similarly, contemporary biological material can be used to make fuel because it is much cheaper to process than fossil fuels such as petroleum, which take millions of years to take the forms in which we use them.

The earth is also a vast generator and treasure house of thermal energy. Radioactive decay, which is continually taking place there, is the most important of those sources. Likewise, the formation of the earth may have taken place four and a half billion years ago, but much of the heat from that early period is still left over and can be used for energy.

With all these energy sources at our disposal, there is no need to buy and use quimical products. Besides, as mentioned above, they cost much less.
