In the twenty first century how you do business is almost as important as results. And it’s not just about taking good care of your customers (and your employees too), or about staying up to date with the latest technology, these days a lot of people care about the environmental impact your company makes.
It isn’t always convenient, or indeed cheap, to do things in an environmentally conscious way, and the bigger the company the more of a hassle it is to reduce your carbon footprint and make sure that recycling is being carried out company wide. But it is worth it, partly of course because it’s the right thing to do, but from a more mercenary point of view (and there’s little use in pretending that no one’s looking at things from that point of view) it’s also worth it because there are many who would rather do business with companies who are environmentally aware.
Of course some areas of your business, particularly things like equipment installation, maintenance or cleaning, are likely to be handed out to outside contractors so you also need to be sure that whoever you use has a similar policy. The difficulty is that often such contractors are using materials and products with which you may not be familiar, so how do you know if they are meeting these ‘green guidelines’?
In the area of professional carpet cleaning Otley can boast as many cleaning companies as any other city, but A1 Professional Cleaning has a particular commitment to environmental standards. And professional cleaning on a large commercial scale is an area where it is hard to maintain such standards.
One way in which A1 Professional Cleaning keeps its green policy is by using a cleaning process called Dry Fusion which uses emulsifiers and greasy soil solublisers which are highly biodegradable and which degrade speedily. Most of the cleaning products that the company uses are also free from phosphates and detergent.
Upholstery Cleaning Otley
For any carpet cleaning company in Otley there is a line to be walked between achieving the levels of cleanliness that customers demand and sticking to environmentally sound practice which they also want. Many cleaning products are unfortunately no friend of the environment so it’s a tough ask. You could say that people are being too precious about the condition of their carpets, it’s just a bit of dirt after all, but there is also a hygiene issue to be considered. Carpets can retain all sorts of unpleasant particles which can cause allergic reactions or even worse. Bottom line; a thoroughly cleaned carpet is an absolute must for a healthy working environment for employees.
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 Otley 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 Otley-based company keen to pursue an environmentally friendly policy, A1 Professional Cleaning is a good company to bear in mind.
