Why Choose Steam Cleaning?
January 17, 2011
Getting ourselves a little bit more information is a lot more important than we often think of. As most of us may already know, “Ignorance of the law, excuses no one.” You can’t say, “I didn’t know I had to have a driver’s license to drive!” – you still violated a law.
Politicians and lawmakers have long passed environmental standards – especially for water, our universal solvent. Let me share a bit of what I know about this stuff. Let me make it easy to understand, as much as possible.
Did you know that many of our usual daily activities cause water pollution?
It may be surprising to know, that the very product we use to keep us refreshed may cause water pollution, one way or another. It is used to sanitize our houses and clothes, and we even use it to wash our vehicles in the driveway. We are all guilty of using bubbles to suggest our car is clean. Soaps and detergents are usually made using animal tallow, paraffin wax and other crude oil derivatives. The products added to the soap, such as fragrance, color and texture can also be harmful to consumers. Even anti-bacterial ingredients can be risky and dangerous. Nowadays many different organic soaps are available. They are mainly made from vegetable oil, coconut oil and other oils that undergo soap making.
Once this soapy water goes down our drain and joins our waterways, it will have to be treated by the Municipal Wastewater Treatment Facility and comes back to us through our faucets. It’s a cycle. For manufacturing companies, there are state-specific laws for the allowed COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand) and BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand) for the wastewater before it is released to a body of water. If it goes over what is stated by law, they can be sued by someone. Erin Brokovich created the same type of situation. The COD and BOD analysis will indirectly determine the amount of organic compounds in the water and will also determine the kind of treatment to make the water usable. The waste we put in the drainage is the same water we get back, just better and treated.
What do socially responsible companies do to help us save water and protect the environment in our daily lives?
There has been a rising awareness on limiting our waste generation for our environment. Businesses, such as DetailXPerts car wash franchise, have been using different things to alleviate the rising concern of global warming. DetailXPerts uses organic and eco-friendly products in its efforts to be a socially responsible business.We really cannot avoid using soap, and we shouldn’t, but you will be more aware when picking a friendly product. I still use soap and I will continue to use it for sanitation purposes but for my sterilizing pleasures, professional detailing by steam cleaning methods is the only way to go – both interior and exterior. It is a lot more productive than using soap.
DetailXPerts go further by giving everyone the opportunity to be part of their proven eco friendly and socially responsible business through car wash franchise opportunities
DetailXPerts offer their franchise opportunities to people who want to start their own car wash business. When we use soap instead of steam while washing our cars, you can see the white residue that remains after it has dried. The same thing occurs when washing our clothes. Our clothes sometimes turn yellowish because of this residue, better known as suds. It is a product produced when using hard water and soap. The Sodium in your soap reacts with the ions that make the water hard (Mg2+and Ca2+) and produces suds. Aside from the fact that we do not want to see residue after paying for our cars to be cleaned, it is much better to use interior and exterior steam cleaning because the steam cleaning process uses heat to soften dirt that can not be removed easily by soap.
