As the owner of this company I must say that I am a bit of an eccentric, especially when it comes to health, safety and chemicals. And for the sake of my customers, employees and myself I thoroughly read all MSDS (material safety data sheets) on all my products used. I can wholeheartedly say any product coming into your home or office will be safe, and if any special precautions need be taken you will be notified in advance.
As stated earlier we take safety and Heath concerns very seriously, so here’s the scoop on “organic”, a word that is thrown around often nowadays. Merriam-Webster has a few definitions but the one that best applies for this industry is: “of, relating to, or containing carbon compounds • organic solvents”. Organic solvents are useful for a multitude of situations but especially for dissolving oils, resins, rubber, and plastics. The thing is...just because something is organic does not necessarily make it safe. CSE or Chronic solvent-induced encephalopathy, is a condition induced by exposure to organic solvents. “Organic solvents that cause CSE are characterized as volatile, blood soluble, lipophilic compounds that are typically liquids at normal temperature”, these are used to extract, dissolve, or suspend non-water-soluble materials such as oils, plastics, rubber and waxes.
Great! everything that we would use them for, right? You would think so, and you would be right! But our products are pure and plant based made from 93% USDA Certified Bio Based Product. This is a non-volatile dry solvent that has MINIMAL volatile solvent added. Minimal is stressed because a volatile solvent is one which easily vaporizes in room temperature (aka your home). Water is called the universal solvent for a reason, and any company diluting their solvents are essentially making the product more volatile (BAD FOR YOU). We use an overwhelming ratio of dry-volatile solvent.This gives us more than enough time to power vacuum whatever solvent is left, before it evaporates into your home or worse your lungs. All organic cleaners use similar (if lucky) or worse processes, anyone who says else is most likely lying. We know, they say what you don’t know can’t hurt you, and In this case it wouldn’t matter either way. But it’s your right to know as the consumer exactly what’s going on. Our company is based off of honesty, hard work, passion and of course without safety first we would have none of the above.
We encourage you to question your current cleaner on their process and understanding. And please if you have any questions regarding products being used feel free to contact us anytime. Our lines are open 24/7 (718)-675-4475
