Shower & Bath
In order to reduce the amount of contaminants in the home (as well as our exposure to VOC's),
we choose not to use toxic chemical cleaning agents unless the task specifically requires a more alkaline or acidic solution to get the job done.
Unlike bleach and other harsh chemicals, all of our cleaning solutions are safe for waterways and septic systems and do not pose a health risk to pets or aquatic life.
Our goal is to physically remove dust, soil, soap scum and debris from surfaces
while sanitizing odor- and disease-causing bacteria and pathogens--
not simply mask them with a strong scent.
For routine surface care, we use non-abrasive pH-neutral cleaning solutions, high-quality microfiber material, HEPA vacuums and tools.
Also offered is use of an EPA-registered disinfectant on non-food surfaces,
i.e. toilets, taps, tubs, door knobs, light switches, etc.
Proper use of disinfectant is known to kill 99.9999% of bacteria, viruses, mold and their spores.

Both laminate flooring and laminate countertops are moisture-sensitive.
Stone and Tile
Granite is the hardest and most durable of commonly-used stone. It is reasonably chemical-resistant but care will vary based upon the manufacturer's finish/sealer.
When cleaning stone and tile, it's important to use the right product.
Harsh acidic cleaners will dissolve calcium-based stones such as true marble, travertine, and limestone.
As well as, toothpastes, coffee and disinfectants.
A mix of stone, resin, and pigments produces the all-natural look of stones like marble and granite. Surfaces like these are extremely resistant to mold and mildew.
