Environmental Responsibility | Aqualux Carpet Cleaning

At Aqualux, we believe that our pursuit of excellence extends to our delicate relationship with the environment. And we are making the necessary changes to help make a difference. As part of a “greening up” initiative, we are now using eco-friendly cleaning solutions and natural stain extraction methods.

Thanks to a growing awareness about chemical effects on our environment and our health, more and more consumers are becoming concerned about the dangers posed by chemical detergents and stain-removers. Aqualux is responding to these concerns by foregoing harsh chemicals in favor of plant-based cleaning solutions and alternative stain removal techniques.

Our citrus-based pre-spray and hot water extraction (HWE) solutions are both environmentally responsible and safe for the people and pets in your home. Our HWE process uses the natural power of highly-heated water to remove stains and break down heavy soil. This means a superior clean without the need for toxic chemical solutions.

We acknowledge that it may take some time for more companies to go green. In the mean time, we will continue in our efforts to make whatever changes we can in order to minimize our environmental impact and ensure the health and safety of our customers.

What You Can Do

Most widely-available household floor cleaning products contain harsh chemicals that can have negative effects on both your family and the environment. These dangerous elements include sodium hypchlorite (the source of chlorine in bleach), acids and other toxins.
Although bleach is traditionally used to disinfect and deodorize floors, it does have some drawbacks. Bleach-containing products release chlorine vapors, which can be harmful to both you and the environment. A poisonous, corrosive, greenish-yellow gas, chlorine in high doses causes damage to all living things. The bottom line: long exposure to harsh chemicals like chlorine is something to avoid!
If you’re concerned about the toxic effects of chemical solutions in your own home, you can opt for alternatives. Let’s start taking the right steps towards sustainability!
