Benefits Of An Organic Carpet Cleaner

Blog originally published on March 23, 2017. Updated on September 2, 2022.

Need to get rid of tough pet stains, dirt, or odors in your home's carpeting? Using organic carpet cleaners can do the same job without the adverse effects of chemical-based cleaners.

In fact, when common toxic chemical-based carpet cleaners are used, they have an impact on physical health and the health of the environment around us. No matter how a toxic cleaner is used — such as poured, sprayed, or mixed for cleaning — the process of washing and rinsing the carpet does not remove all toxins in the carpet. Plus, when the cleaner is disposed of, it continues to impact the environment in a negative way. 

Below, we review the top benefits of natural carpet cleaning, what to look for, and even how to make your own carpet cleaner at home! For more guidance, contact the friendly Greener Method team today.

Top Benefits of Green Carpet Cleaning

When you go green, you can still get the deep clean you need. There are many benefits of switching to natural carpet cleaning. Here are the top three.

Safe & Non-Toxic

Did you know noxious fumes can form when synthetic carpet meets chemical cleaners? This chemical mix can cause allergic reactions in loved ones, including children and pets. This is diminished if you have an organic carpet, but not eliminated.

Lowers Pollution

Some harsh cleaning products add chemicals into the environment and air. This pollution often lasts for days after cleaning. The indoor chemical air can even cause more severe reactions like headaches, nausea, asthma attacks, and an overall irritation of the nose, lungs, and eyes. It can result in coughing, sneezing, congestion, fatigue, and more. Eco-friendly carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning solutions decrease this pollution in the home and help everyone breathe easier.

Reduced Mold Risk

In addition, green carpet cleaning products also greatly reduce mold growth potential because most organic cleaners are dry. Dry carpet cleaning minimizes the growth of mold spores and other harmful bacteria.

What to Look for in Organic Carpet Cleaners

The best organic carpet cleaners are nontoxic, biodegradable, pet-friendly, and in packaging that is 100% recyclable. If you prefer to have your carpets cleaned professionally, there are professional cleaners that specialize in organic carpet cleaning for stubborn stains. Over the past two decades, companies that clean carpets organically, or green, have expanded, so it should be easy to locate one in your area.

If you’re a do-it-yourselfer, you can save money and make your own carpet cleaning solution with a few simple ingredients like vinegar and fresh lemon juice. Here’s one great organic carpet cleaner recipe:

  • 1 cup baking soda

  • 18 drops organic essential oil like bergamot (citrus scent), coriander seed (woody scent), or lavender oil

  • 1 teaspoon natural liquid soap made of vegetable or nut oils

Mix the baking soda with the oil, and add the soap to make a creamy paste. Apply to spots on the carpet and area rugs, scrub thoroughly, and blot until dry.
