MOVING FROM GREY TO GREEN
Updated: Feb 10
In the great words of Greta Thunberg “We deserve a safe future, and we demand a safe future is that really too much to ask?” This speech was made in Sept 2019 but relevant for the times ahead, and my industry. As times change so do people’s views and becoming Green is the new way of life green cars, green energy, and for me the venture into green cleaning solutions. Steering away from the harsh chemicals that are used within my industry to clean carpets and upholstery.
THE STORY SO FAR
My entry into the world of carpet & Upholstery cleaning goes back some 40 years although I don’t look a day over 25, back then carrying buckets of dirty wastewater from my father’s carpet cleaning machine and setting up seemed like a great offer, and the reward of about £5 was like a weeks’ worth of sweets, 40 years later and flitting from job to job I decided to embark on the family tradition, and carry the torch so to speak well, how times have changed what I once knew was now obsolete. Tools gathered, van collected, training gained and off I go once again job after job after job until one day I stopped and noticed a warning sign on one of the chemicals I used. Now having a daughter who has a lung condition and allergies to many things made me think. There must be a safer way, a clean way, and a greener way. So, after plenty of research and internet trawling, I came across a company called solution world of clean and the rest is history. My journey into 100% Plant-based chemical-free solutions had started and I have never looked back since. Pet-friendly, child-friendly, and friendly to the environment all made with 100% natural plant-based materials meaning the solutions we use for our Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning are derived from renewable and sustainable sources. What is an added benefit is that our solution we use also exhibits antibacterial & anti-viral properties that have been approved to EN14476 to kill viruses including the new SARS-CoV-2 (SARS-CoV-2 is the virus that causes the illness COVID-19) here at DNR Clean we are proud to take a step in the right direction.
The future in your hands
Moving on through the stress of 2020, if one thing the year has taught me, is that family and friends are important, and our health is more appreciated, and the world is moving towards a greener future. Things take time to change old habits die hard, but every little change for the good, will have a better impact on the beautiful planet we live in.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my customers old and new for being part of DNR Cleans journey.
