Eco-Friendly Cleaning

So Fresh & So Clean is a family run business striving to bring environmentally safe cleaning to homes in the Ann Arbor and surrounding areas. We are professionally trained cleaners who work hard to make sure we get every area in your house clean. We clean top to bottom meaning - we high dust lights, fans, ceilings, spot clean walls and doors, clean windows and windowsills, clean light switches and outlets, we edge the carpet then vacuum. We do a very thorough job cleaning the bathrooms and kitchens. You can also request special projects and request the beds be made with fresh clean sheets.

 

Why Eco-Friendly?

The Environmental Protection Agency ranks indoor air pollution among the top environmental dangers, and much of this pollution comes from common cleaning products (or what we’ll call “indoor pollutants”). Immediate effects of exposure to indoor pollutants can include headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, as well as exacerbated symptoms of asthma and other respiratory illnesses. Long-term effects (following long or repeated exposure to indoor pollutants) include respiratory diseases, heart disease, and even cancer. The indoor pollutants that can cause these reactions are so common that the EPA strongly recommends everyone improve the air quality of their home, regardless of whether symptoms are currently present. In other words, these pollutants are pretty whack.

Here are some informative websites to learn more about protecting you and your family from common household cleaning products:

Our Products

Luckily, using chemical-laden products isn’t the only way to keep your home sparkly clean! We have a pretty Bad-@$$ team of natural products that get the job done and here are some of our star players:

 

Baking soda

Baking soda has virus-killing abilities that also cleans, deodorizes, softens water, and scours.

Castile soap

Castile soap is a style of soap that’s made from 100% plant oils (meaning it uses no animal products or chemical detergents). Popularized by the Dr. Bronner’s line of products, castile cuts through grease and cleans.

White Vinegar

Cuts through grease; removes mildew, odors, and some stains; and to prevent or remove wax build-up.

Lemon juice

Not only does lemon juice smell amazing it also one of the strongest food acids, lemon juice is effective against most household bacteria.

olive oil

great for a natural wood polisher

Essential oils

Essential oils have gained popularity thanks to aromatherapy, but these naturally occurring plant compounds also make great scent additions to homemade cleaning products (particularly if you’re not into the smell of vinegar).
