We believe that home cleaning does not have to mean toxic chemicals and harmful products in your home and the environment. We want to leave the planet just a little greener and we have committed to using healthier, eco-friendly, recycled and reusable products. In order to reduce our impact on your home and the environment Lilly’s uses:

Green Cleaning - hypoallergenic vacuuming

For Vacuuming: Disposable Hypo-Allergenic Filter Bags

Hypo-allergenic vacuum bags differ a great deal from their regular counterparts. While regular vacuum bags are designed to simply contain dirt and debris, hypoallergenic vacuum bags will trap large amounts of the small particles that typically get re-circulated back into the air. This means a healthier spaces, a healthier home, and a healthier you!

green cleaning microfiber cloths

For Dusting: Microfiber Dusting Cloths

We use microfiber dusting cloths that can be used without detergents or cleaning solutions, meaning fewer chemicals enter your home! Although they do not require additional cleaning solutions, these handy cloths stand up to deep-set stains and dirt. Instead, microfiber textiles clean on a microscopic scale, leaving fewer dirt and bacteria behind than traditional cloths. In fact, according to tests, using microfiber materials to clean a surface leads to reducing the number of bacteria by 99%, whereas conventional cleaning materials reduce this number only by 33%. Microfiber cleaning tools also absorb fat and grease and their electrostatic properties give them a high dust-attracting power.

Disinfecting: What does it mean to all of us?

How long does it last?

What are the most effective ways to keep homes and offices safe and healthy?

Due to the current pandemic the market has been inundated with “disinfecting” services. So, we must know what is included in their offer, how long the disinfection lasts and know what the most successful way is to keep a healthy home and healthy office.

If we opt for the services offering a disinfecting fog or spray lets be sure they first provide a detailed cleaning, or the disinfectant is totally useless since the fog or mist will be placed on the top of the dirt.

Some cleaning services are now offering a “disinfecting” service in order to take advantage of the current situation. Their disinfecting treatment guarantee ends when someone enters the place and therefor the home or office is contaminated again.

Some of the cleaning services are disinfecting with chemicals which MSDS sheet specify special body protection equipment. So, we wonder what about the chemical’s residue those products leave behind for our families and pets to absorb ?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends regular cleaning of frequently touched surfaces, along with thorough hand washing—both standard practices for helping slow the spread of viruses and bacteria.

The CDC suggests a detailed cleaning routine of the home or office to eliminate dust, dirt, and trash, and regularly disinfecting of high-touch surfaces. By keeping a regular cleaning and disinfecting high-touch areas, we maintain our home and office safer in the long run, as compared to one-time disinfection services.

The surfaces with the highest risk of dispersing infection are hands, high-touch surfaces, and food contact surfaces. The lowest-risk areas involve floors, walls, and of course furniture.

So, it makes sense that regularly breaking down the string of infection is the best way to sustain a healthy home and office, and Lilly’s Cleaning Service has the right products and service to do it.
