ABOUT US

Based in Dukinfield, Greater Manchester, we offer cleaning services for work and living spaces, with an emphasis on using only plant based, biodegradable, hypo-allergenic products.  We are passionate about providing an excellent level of service to our clients, whilst ensuring our business is run in an ethical manner, to lessen our impact on the health of people, animals and the environment.

 

Director Kelly Ryan says: "We are really passionate about the environment, animal welfare, and health.  It's become 'the norm' over the past couple of decades to use cleaning methods and products that involve toxic chemicals.  These chemicals are unhealthy for you, your children, and your pets.  Our mission is to encourage a more natural, healthier approach to cleaning, and to provide high quality cleaning services using only Eco-friendly products and working practises." 

The World Health Organisation lists air pollution as one of the biggest risks to human health.  This pollution not only comes in the form of external sources such as car fumes and the like, but from the air inside our own homes and places of work.  This is largely down to chemical exposure, which includes cleaning products around the home.  Eco-cleaning means using products that contain no harsh chemicals, bleach, phthalates, petroleum-based ingredients or synthetic dyes etc.  Compared to non-Eco cleaning, it is safer for everyone, but in particular:

  • ​Children and babies

  • Those with asthma, allergies and skin sensitivities

  • Employees in the workplace

  • Pets

​We only use Eco-friendly, ethical cleaning products and equipment, and all of the cleaning products we use are:

  • contain 100% plant-based ingredients and are hypo-allergenic

  • are safer for the environment

  • are safer for children and pets

  • are vegan and not tested on animals

​All of our products are also biodegradable which means they are biologically broken down once they enter the environment/sewage system, and they are suitable for septic tanks.  ​Using these products means there is less of an impact on your health and the environment, so you can be doing your bit without doing anything!  And importantly for you, they clean just as well as other products that are not plant based so there is no compromise on quality.  Some of the products we use are Ocean Saver, Ecover, Method and Bio-D.  If you have a preference for a particular product to be used then we are happy to do this as long as it is inline with our ethos.

​All cloths and mops are reusable, so although there is an element of carbon footprint involved, using reusables are better for the environment than throwing away plastics one use cloths etc.  We use bag less vacuum cleaners with HEPA or allergy filters to extract (and retain) the maximum amount of dust, mould, mites, and other allergens from surfaces.  This ensures a much healthier clean for our clients.  We operate a strict 'Reduce, reuse, recycle' policy.

We know that what is important for one person may not important for someone else so we will always discuss your requirements and make sure we carry out what is important to you, and check in with you on a regular basis to ensure you are happy.
