Health risks – asbestos and cleaning chemicals.
Asbestos has long been recognized as a significant risk to health – lessons learned over decades should now be applied to modern cleaning chemicals to remove risks to health, safety and the environment.
Remember though, asbestos used to be a wonder material. It saved lives and made living more comfortable. Eventually, the benefits of this product were removed as the weight of evidence shifted, and asbestos was recognised as a major health risk globally.
Over the last few years there have been significant studies released that point at chemicals as a major source of many ailments, and for the proliferation of ailments that have become much more common as chemical use has become more widespread.
Whilst chemicals have a place in all our lives, many now argue that human and animal exposure to harmful chemicals should be minimised.
If you buy a new car, or TV, or even new clothes, or food for dinner there are chemicals present that many of us would rather avoid – but it’s not always practicable.
Thankfully, there is one area where removing harmful chemicals is really easy – cleaning chemicals.
There are some real nasties in most cleaning chemicals, yet they can be completely removed from our lives if we choose to do so.
The Gen-Eon Trio is a great alternative –It’s cost effective, sustainable and it works! Imagine having a compact stand-alone device that makes cleaning fluids for you, that supports a team of cleaners, that works on multiple surfaces, and does it all for a few cents a litre.
Other technologies that can help you clean without chemicals include steam and microfibre.
The crux of the matter is that cleaning chemicals can easily be avoided, and should be!
