8 Great Reasons to Make the Switch to Green Cleaning Tech

Posted by Phil Shames on

When we founded our Ecosuds business back in 2008 in Hamilton, Ontario, we aimed to provide you with healthier and cleaner places to live and work throughout the Greater Hamilton, Burlington, Grimsby areas.

While other companies in the Hamilton and Burlington Ontario areas were using toxic and environmentally unsustainable practices, we felt there must be a better way.

We searched the world to find the systems and solutions that would sanitize, deodorize, and as we say "get the ugly out" without the use of harsh and dangerous chemicals. 

At Ecosuds, we consciously opt for sustainable, green and non-toxic products in all of our services and products for sale. Our valued customers love the fact that we protect their health and their environment.

Here are 8 great reasons why you should make the switch to green cleaning today and rest easy knowing you are protecting not only your own health, but the health of your family, your employees and that of the planet!


1. Make your home or workplace safer

Labels that read Warning! Toxic! Flammable! Hazardous! are common on many conventional cleaning products making it evident that they really aren’t all that safe. Many of the chemicals used (such as chlorine and ammonia) can be extremely dangerous when mixed together. Young children and pets are considered to be particularly vulnerable because their size increases their risk of higher exposure levels. Minimize your risk by using green cleaning products and solutions (check out our collection of green solutions) that aren’t toxic or as dangerous to use.

2.Protect your health

You will quite literally feel better cleaning with green products and solutions. Unlike conventional cleaning products, you will have the peace of mind knowing that what you’re using to clean with won’t cause harm to you, your family, your employees or your pets.

Symptoms like headaches, coughing, sneezing, skin rashes and more often reduce or completely disappear once you stop exposing yourself to the toxins in conventional cleaning products. Considering many of the hazardous chemicals in these products are often carcinogens, neurotoxins, mutagens, teratogens, or endocrine disruptors, it is without a doubt a worthwhile switch to natural, green cleaning products.

3. Keep your air clean

Conventional cleaning products can contribute to higher pollution indoors and compromise the air you breathe at home or in your workplace. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), chemical compounds that evaporate under regular indoor atmospheric conditions and compromise air quality, are released into the air when chemical products are used. They can also continue to linger in the air long after use.

These compounds have been associated with a variety of health problems like damage to the kidneys, liver, central nervous and respiratory systems. You can breathe easier knowing that cleaning with products that are natural and green will not have the same detrimental effects on your health.

4. Preserve the environment

Every time you choose to use green cleaning products, you are taking a stand for the protection of the environment. Most green cleaning products and solutions are made using sustainable manufacturing practices and contain naturally derived, non-toxic, safe and even biodegradable ingredients that don’t negatively impact the environment.

In contrast, conventional cleaning products commonly contain ingredients that are made from non-renewable resources and contain ingredients that adversely impact the Earth’s ecosystems.

5. Save costs

Cleaning with green products can save you an exorbitant amount of money in the long run. With more manufacturers entering the green cleaning business, natural products are becoming more competitively priced, sometimes even cheaper in comparison to their conventional, chemical-laden counterparts. Additionally, when you invest in green cleaning solutions, it’s likely that the product is reusable (like the EnozoPRO that you can refill up to 5,000 times) and could replace the need to repurchase a product multiple times. 

6. Support your community

When you choose to use green products, you make an active choice to protect the health of your community. Many manufacturers and businesses that support green cleaning products take social responsibility just as seriously. This is usually demonstrated by lending their efforts towards social or educational causes (check out our local efforts) or even contributing portions of their profits towards environmental change. Whether it’s on a local or global scale, you can feel good knowing that you're not only investing in yourself and the environment but also giving back to the community.

7. Make cleaning easier

There is no need to spend hours scrubbing away at every nook and cranny of the room when you can use technologies that disperse a natural cleanser into the air. With an ozone generator, simply turn it on and leave the room for a preset amount of time.

While you are gone ozone will envelop and uniformly purify all the surfaces in the room, and reach deep into fabrics, eliminating odours, bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants.

8. Know what’s really in your products

Ever read a product label and see a bunch of chemicals you can’t even pronounce? You deserve to know what you are using to clean your home. With our green products and solutions we’re going to tell you, clearly and simply. 

To use products like the EnozoPRO, it’s as simple as adding water to the machine and it generates ozonated water for you. You are in control of creating the cleaning agent and know exactly what goes into your products.


These are just a few of the reasons why we carefully select the highest quality green cleaning products and offer exceptional services that not only sanitize, deodorize and purify spaces but also keep the health of our customers and the environment top of mind.
