Why the need for Green Cleaning?
It has been found that some widely used
cleaning products have serious adverse effects on the health of
building occupants and janitors. The average person spends about 90%
of their day indoors, where air pollution from diverse sources such
as cleaners, upholstery, and carpeting can be up to 100 times
greater than outdoor air. Short term health problems caused by
exposure to hazardous cleaning products range from eye irritation
and coughing to chest pain, vomiting, cramps, and diarrhea.
Long-term effects may include liver and kidney failure, birth
defects, emphysema, brain damage, and even cancer. 11.6% of
work-related asthma comes from cleaning products. In addition,
people who suffer from multiple chemical sensitivity syndrome, a
disease that is not fully understood or recognized by the medical
community, feel that low level exposure to chemicals, such as
cleaning products, cause them to feel sick. Not only are humans
affected but the affects of these cleaning chemicals are felt down
stream, literally. Some ingredients of cleaning products are
associated with eutrophication (toxics.usgs.gov/definitions/eutrophication.html)
of streams and are toxic to aquatic organisms.
