Most household detergents contain chemicals. A good example are the oven cleaners. They contain a mixture of chemicals that are used to remove all forms of dirt from the oven. Some of the toxic chemicals contained in these household cleaners include ammonia, chlorides, lye, and phosphorylates. Many households use these chemicals on a daily basis to clean their homes. However, these are oblivious dangers that these chemicals pose. These chemicals are well known to enhance:
Corrosion: Corrosion is the wearing away of component parts in home items making them age at a fast rate. Metallic components undergo corrosion when exposed to chemicals that facilitate corrosion. Some of these cleaning agents contain chemicals that are dangerous when used on fridges, ovens or other metallic/plastic appliances, because the appliances get eaten away.
Combustion: Combustion is the burning process. Some of the cleaning agents contain chemicals that enhance burning. When used in cleaning, they make the cleaned items highly combustible. These items can thus attract fire or catch fire on a tiny spark. Some of the materials cleaned may be carpets, floors and walls, or electrical appliances.
Poisoning: Poisoning can occur in different ways. It can be through ingestion of harmful chemicals or through inhaling the chemicals. It is easy for a young child to get poisoned by licking hands that touched surfaces that were cleaned using harsh chemicals. It is also easy to inhale these harsh chemicals when their fumes are spread around the house. This could lead to death, or respiratory related illnesses.
If you have no time or you are not sure on what cleaning detergents you need to using, you might want to hire professional cleaners. However, you need to be very careful when selecting the right cleaning company for you and ensuring that they are using green cleaning products that do not pose any risks to you or your loved ones.
