Mud Is Safer Than Benzene


This seems like a rhetorical statement, yet with summer vacation upon us, children may be drawn to exploring their surroundings and getting dirty. However, certain chemical compounds found around the home may affect their health in ways mud never could.


In recent years, we’ve been inundated with news reports about the dramatic increase in allergy & asthma rates among young children, particularly those between the ages of 10 and 19, according to the World Health Organization. Researchers have proposed a number of hypotheses attempting to pinpoint a singular, clear-cut cause; alas none exist... However, evidence has shown that exposure to certain toxic compounds (i.e. benzene) may be a factor.

The importance of using non-toxic cleaners around children and doing right by the environment is too great to ignore. This is why Eagle Building Maintenance and Janitorial Services (Eagle BMJ) utilizes many green products when servicing all of our clients. However, we also offer professional green cleaning services. In choosing so, we only use green products that have been labeled as "Designed for Environment" (DFE), meaning the product has been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and follows strict guidelines to reduce chemical exposure to both cleaning workers and building occupants. Additionally, our staff is made up of green cleaning professionals who have been trained in the latest scientifically-based green cleaning standards. Through the use of green products and procedures, this results in healthier living and a cleaner environment for all of us.
