Green and Clean
At Bahamian Maids, a clean house has cleaner air because we care not only about the planet but also about the people and animals that inhabit it.
Bahamian Maids products are shipped to us in concentrate form, which means we can lessen our carbon emissions by not shipping water, which is the primary ingredient in ready-to-use products. We dilute products locally and put them in re-usable bottles. This use and re-use of many bottles and sprayers also means less plastic in our Bahamas landfills. However, when a home has not been maintained to Bahamian Maids’ high cleaning standards we may recommend a stronger line of products – at the discretion of our customers – to bring a home up to our standards and then maintained using our Green line of products.
Process and Equipment Make a Difference
Indoor pollution rates are typically higher than outdoor pollution rates, and dust is a big contributor to indoor pollution. Therefore, Bahamian Maids takes dust removal seriously. For removing dust and dirt while cleaning, we haven’t found anything better than microfiber cloths. These cloths capture dust and dirt rather than move it around. Microfiber cloths also last longer than traditional cotton cleaning cloths and take less energy to wash and dry. This can mean that less cloths end up in landfills, and Bahamian Maids’ carbon footprint is smaller. We use vacuums that meet Gold Seal standard of the Carpet and Rug Institute’s Green Label certification.* This certification ensures that among other things, a vacuum must not release more than 100 micrograms of dust particles per cubic meter of air.*
