No matter what industry your company is in, these days conducting business in an environmentally sound fashion is more and more important. Customer and other businesses judge the quality of a company by its adherence to ‘green’ policies.
There’s no doubt that, however important the environment is (and despite a minority of dissenting voices the general consensus is that the environment is important), implementing a company-wide green policy can be a pain, and that pain gets more pronounced as the company gets bigger. Whether it’s making sure that employees are recycling properly or converting a building’s lighting to energy saving bulbs, environmentalism on a large scale is a logistical and managerial headache. But it has its benefits, besides saving the planet (important but somewhat intangible) many are more willing to do business with a company that has an environmentally friendly outlook.
But there are areas where it may at first seem hard to maintain that environmentally friendly policy. It can be difficult when a company is using an outside contractor because their policy may not be yours, or when cleaning products are involved because this is an area where a good job being done is arguably more important than the potential environmental impact. Those two come together when hiring professional cleaners.
For professional carpet cleaning Allwoodley has many companies to whom a business can turn, but A1 Professional Cleaning is one that prides itself on being as green as possible, within an industry where greenness is still far from the norm.
Upholstery Cleaning Alwoodley
For starters A1 Professional Cleaning uses many products which are both detergent free and phosphate free, but in addition to this the main process that the company uses is one called Dry Fusion which is a very environmentally friendly cleaning process, using greasy soil solublisers and emulsifiers which are biodegradable and degrade at a very fast rate.
The quandary faced by companies offering professional carpet cleaning in Alwoodley is that people want their carpets cleaned properly (of course they do, why else would they hire a professional company?) but many of the traditional products used are not environmentally sound and people are no longer willing to accept this. There is a balance to be reached. It’s also important to remember that an inadequately cleaned carpet does not just look bad, it will also harbour moulds, fungi, bacteria, dust and other allergens and potentially harmful particles and substances. This is particularly true of modern carpets in which the fibres are a much tighter weave and so retain foreign bodies more readily. Thorough carpet cleaning is a matter of hygiene and health and it is an employer’s responsibility to make sure that it is done properly and regularly.
Dry Fusion is a cleaning technique which delivers excellent cleaning but without compromising any green standards. It washes and deodorises carpets and gets its name from the fact that it will also dry the carpet in only thirty minutes. On top of that the process includes the application of a stain resistant layer and something called a bactoshield which inhibits the growth of fungi, mould and bacteria. In fact, Dry Fusion, despite its green credentials, is, if anything, more effective than traditional cleaning methods.
It’s not just because of their use of the Dry Fusion process that for professional carpet cleaning Alwoodley businesses turn to A1 Professional Cleaning. The company also uses other cleaning processes such as Cristal Fusion and Hot Water Extraction but in these too it maintains a green policy of using only biodegradable cleaning products and, as much as possible, avoiding phosphates and detergents. For any Alwoodley-based company keen to pursue an environmentally friendly policy, A1 Professional Cleaning is a good company to bear in mind.
