You’ve most likely heard about the current green cleaning trend. People all over are turning away from traditional chemical cleaners in favor of greener options. But what exactly does that mean?
Essentially, “green” can be equated to “safe.” Not only are green products safer for the people that use them (because they lack the harmful chemical ingredients found in traditional cleaners), but they are also packed and used in such a way as to minimize their environmental impact (think biodegradable & less plastic/packaging necessary).
The Consumer Product Safety Commission points out that the level of pollutants is 2 to 5 times higher indoors than it is outside due to chemical household cleaners. Green cleaning is an attempt to combat that statistic by keeping those chemicals out of the air that you breathe every day.
However, slapping a “green” label on the bottle doesn’t mean that it’s actually safe, or that it will be an effective cleaner. Many brands want to cash in on the trend by making their products seem more appealing to the green cleaning crowd, but if you look closely you may find that their cleaners are not as green as they could be.
TECH is not one of those brands – we’ve been around since 1974, and we’ve been passionate about safe, effective cleaning since day one. For us, this is not a trend. It’s a necessity. We have years of experience perfecting our products to ensure that we are using only the safest ingredients, and that the products we create actually work.
This is what makes TECH products so safe:
NO HARSH CHEMICALS, SOLVENTS, OR BLEACH
Our TECH cleaning products are water-based, but just as tough as solvent-based cleaners while avoiding harsh chemicals, solvents and bleach that can dull or damage fabrics and surfaces – or harm skin, hands, and your health.
PH NEUTRAL/PH BALANCED
Our formula doesn’t attack skin or cause health problems, discoloration, or corrosion of surfaces. And it’s an environmentally-friendly cleaning option.
On the pH (potential hydrogen) scale (1-14), TECH products are Neutral… near the middle, similar to the human body (7.4) and water (7). It might sound silly to compare our formula to water… but don’t underestimate the TECH cleaning power!
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) can be released when using cleaning supplies and contribute to respiratory problems, allergic reactions, headaches, eye & throat irritation and other serious health problems. Breathe easy knowing our TECH products don’t contain VOCs.
This one’s simple… our cleaning products don’t contain harmful solvents that can easily catch fire.
Enzymes are biological compounds that help speed up chemical reactions and can be very effective in cleaning products. However, our TECH cleaning products are just as effective without altering reactions or introducing chemicals.
Our product is 100% biodegradable, so it breaks down into nontoxic elements quickly, causing little to no harm to the environment.
Acidic cleaners can be corrosive and harmful to skin, and they can produce irritating or toxic fumes. Our TECH cleaning products are pH Balanced and non-acidic, so no need to worry about the parent, kid, or pet that may end up with it.
Phosphate is a natural and effective water-softening mineral found in a variety of cleaning products… so what’s the problem? Phosphate is actually a harmful water pollutant. It’s even been banned in the U.S. for a variety of applications.
As you can see, we’ve put a lot of thought into what we put in our cleaning products. We want to make sure you and your family stay safe!
But TECH isn’t just safe for humans and their pets – it is also better for the environment. Our products are super effective, so a little goes a long way. This means the bottle you purchase is going to last you a very, very long time. And when you run out of product down the road, we offer economical refill sizes to reduce the amount of plastic being disposed of. TECH products are biodegradable and use recyclable packaging materials.
Long story short, TECH is a fantastic option for a safe, easy to use cleaning product. What’s not to love?
