Cleaner Practices

CLEANING OUR WAY TO A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

EcoKleen Albury-Wodonga aims to achieve:

  • Energy Reduction
  • Reductions in CO2 emissions
  • Water Savings
  • Chemical Savings

9716049-a-baby-girl-with-parents-on-a-green-floorWe are leading the way in providing an alternative approach to carpet cleaning using ‘cleaner practices’ as listed below. We adopt a cleaner, greener method of cleaning carpet and strive to comply with environmental ‘best practices’ relative to ‘ Green’ Marketing  & Australian Consumer Law.

What is ‘Cleaner Production’?  

It involves practices aimed at reducing the consumption of raw materials (including water and raw materials) and also reducing the volume and toxicity of waste and other emissions.

Hot water extraction or ‘encapsulation’  methods commonly used to clean carpets generate high strength wastewater. Liquid effluent from carpet cleaning operations may contain contaminants such as suspended soils, metals and other chemicals and substances in concentrations above the levels specified as restricted substances.  These contain high levels of contaminants that, if discharged to stomwater collections systems, pose a significant risk to the environment when discharged into the river system.  An example of a common contaminant is phosphate which promotes algal growth and pollutes rivers and water systems.

The dry cleaning method used by EcoKleen Albury-Wodonga uses up to 90% less water and does not involve a large quantity of contaminated waste water.  Products used are phosphate-free, biodegradable and a safer alternative to achieve a professionally cleaner carpet.  Our three-stage cleaning process will ensure that your carpets are left soft, clean and fresh-smelling at the same time protecting your family’s health.

EcoKleen A-W implements ‘Cleaner Practices’ on a daily basis as follows:

  • re-using or “recycling wastes” rather than sending them to landfill
  • reducing the number and re-using packaging and containers
  • rinse out detergent containers into machine and use the very last drop
  • always use recommended type & quantity of detergent, for top quality cleaning
  • use the latest equipment, ensuring it is well maintained and serviced regularly
  • check all equipment regularly for wasteful air leaks
  • testing and tagging of all equipment
  • turning off equipment when not in use
  • installing water saving devices and checking for any leaks
  • up to 90% less water usage on average

Cleaner Practices Equals Cleaner Environment
