Green Cleaners in Denver & Boulder, CO
What kind of cleaning products do you use?
In an effort to be an eco-friendly cleaner we use BOULDER CLEANERS, a product line that is certified by Green Seal, Ecologo, and Designed for the Environment (a program sponsored by the United States Environmental Protection Agency). BOULDER CLEANERS products reduce pollution and the risks associated with chemical usage and disposal. The company, too, is committed to the environment and seeks to reduce their own water usage and energy consumption while creating a sustainable development practice in their attainment of palm and coconut oils. BOULDER CLEANERS also uses only recyclable packaging. Although our commitment to being green cleaners is important to us, just as equally important is supporting local business. BOULDER CLEANERS is operated and manufactured in Boulder and Denver, Colorado. Learn more at boulderclean.com.
What does it mean to be an eco-friendly cleaning service?
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines green cleaning products as those that have positive environmental attributes, such as biodegradability, low toxicity, low volatile organic compound content, reduced packaging, and low life cycle energy use. This includes products that have minimal corrosive substances, human carcinogens, toxicants, ozone-depleting compounds, and other hazardous ingredients—and instead use renewable resources, such as bio-based solvents from citrus, seed, vegetable, and pine oils.
Scout strives to adhere to these green principles. Also, many of our cleaners use High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter vacuum cleaners, which trap fine particles such as pollen and dust mite feces, which diminish indoor air quality and can trigger allergy and asthma symptoms. So you can breathe easy knowing Scout is looking out for your health as well as the cleanliness of your home.
Because Scout Cleaning is a green cleaning company, are you more expensive than other maid services or house cleaners in Denver and Boulder?
No, our pricing is very competitive with other house cleaners in the Denver and Boulder area. The products we use are more expensive, but we are professionally managed and extremely efficient, which helps us to keep prices down. We also feel strongly about using products that we’re proud to stand behind, even if it means we make a little less money. Our customers appreciate our commitment to being eco-friendly, and therefore, we have many loyal, longstanding customers that contribute to our company’s success.
