Indicates dangers of aerosol cleaning agents found in the home. Shows direct relationship of cleaners to asthma & allergy sufferers. Complete Green Cleaning provides means to eliminate the dangerous chemicals without sacrificing performance.
(PRWEB) July 11, 2007 -- Complete Green Cleaning provides how-to guides to help relieve asthma & allergy symptoms caused by petroleum-based cleaning agents. Aerosol cleaners have been determined to cause asthma symptoms for both domestic & professional cleaners. While previous studies have shown a direct relationship to asthma in cleaning professionals, no survey had been conducted on a domestic level. A total of 3,503 people were monitored in the European Community Respiratory Health Survey (ECRHS). Full article availably in the July 7th issue of Irish Medical News written by Danielle Barron.
These participants ranged in age from 20 to 44 and had no asthma symptoms before beginning the study. Each cleaned their home regularly & consented to participate. 42% of the participants that used an aerosol cleaner at least once a week showed symptoms.
The study consisted of 15 different cleaning products each used at different frequencies. Some were daily, some one to three times per week, some once a week or even less frequently. Participants were monitored for respiratory illness by diagnosis & treatment of symptoms for asthma.
While this study concluded that aerosol cleaners produced significant risks to the cause of respiratory problems & asthma, more research is required to determine the exact chemical compounds that cause the respiratory distress. Non-aerosol cleaners were not shown to have a direct cause to respiratory problems or asthma. Recently, the results from these findings have been posted on the online version of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. Survey results are
Eliminating these harmful aerosols should create a low-risk environment. There are a couple of ways to achieve this condition. The first is by using homemade natural cleaners. The major ingredients in these are baking soda & distilled white vinegar. These are natures natural oxygen-creating organic cleaners. These are readily available at any grocery store & are highly cost-effective. Recipes are also easy to find.
Another way is to seek out "green" cleaners. These are products which are not made from petroleum. Natural-based cleaning products do not produce fumes. They are also non-aerosol which keeps airborne pollutants from forming. Green cleaning products are also bio-degradable. They don't cause any stress to delicate water systems. Standard detergents are harsh & harmful to our environment.
Industrial cleaners are tested for toxicity on animals. Generally, they are tested on rats & rabbits. Many green cleaning products are cruelty-free, meaning they are not tested on animals at all. As they are non-toxic, this testing is not necessary.
Going green at home can provide relief for asthma & allergy sufferers. Protecting our people, planet, & animals is what green cleaning is all about. Creating a safe environment at home is key since we spend up to 90% of our time indoors.
Complete Green Cleaning CEO John Marshall had this to say. "I have been symptom-free (from asthma) since using my green cleaning products & guides. Breathing easy at home has been nice."
