Congratulations! You made it through another school year, and now the kids are home for the summer. While many parents may be stressed about what to do to keep them entertained, others are more concerned about child proofing their home as far as household chemicals are concerned. As a leader in the commercial cleaning industry, ZEROREZ® has some tips for keeping your child safe indoors this summer.
According to Safe Kids Worldwide, 2,200 children die each year from injuries sustained at home, and 3.5 million go to the ER each year for the same types of injuries. The organization surveyed 1,010 parents of children under the age of 12 to learn more about how they handle home safety issues. When asked in an open ended question what their top home safety concerns are, only 4% listed poison and toxic chemicals. 68% of those surveyed said they keep their cleaning chemicals on a low shelf where children could reach, and 59% of that group said they are not in a locked cabinet.
Green Cleaning: More than a Passing Fad
When the term ‘going green’ began popping up as a buzzword, many people believed it would be just another passing fad. However, with statistics like those found in the Safe Kids Worldwide survey, many parents need to take caution when bringing chemicals into their home. Cleaning agents like bleach, laundry and dish washing detergents, degreasers, oven cleaners and even carpet cleaners should be stored up high in a locked cabinet, or be replaced with a green alternative.
Long before green cleaning became a big issue, ZEROREZ® was using a green approach in their commercial cleaning franchises. The founders of the company had been property managers and found their biggest struggle was keeping carpets clean. No matter how many companies they used, the carpets ended up looking dirty quicker than they should. SO the two set out to find a better way to clean. After much testing, they developed Empowered Water™- a filtered water that acts like a detergent as it cleans and removes soils and stains from deep within the carpet fibers. This patented cleaning system is safe for children and pets as it does not rely on harsh chemicals to clean.
