1. Eco Friendly Cleaning Products are Better for the Environment

Most common household cleaners contain volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. These carbon-based chemicals evaporate at room temperature and contribute to increased levels of greenhouse gasses and ozone in the environment.

2. Non Toxic Cleaners are Better for Your Health

More immediately, VOCs are harmful to your health. The American Lung Association warns that “VOCs and other chemicals released when using cleaning supplies contribute to chronic respiratory problems, allergic reactions and headaches...studies link exposure to chemicals from cleaning supplies to occupational asthma and other respiratory illnesses.”

According to the EPA, VOCs contribute to a host of health concerns including eye, nose, and throat irritation; headaches, loss of coordination, and nausea; and damage to your liver, kidneys, and central nervous system. Some organics are also suspected or known to cause cancer.

If you’ve ever felt lightheaded after being exposed to chemicals like paint or gasoline, you’ve felt the effects of VOCs.

3. PH Balanced Cleaners are Better For Your Natural Stone

Finally, when it comes to cleaning marble, granite, and other natural stone, it is always best to use pH neutral tile and stone cleaners because they do not contain acids or abrasive chemicals that will etch and dull the surface of your stone.
