While more and more people are becoming concerned with having the most effective clean in their homes, have you ever stopped to consider whether your cleaning products are septic-safe?

These days, more than one in five homes in the United States use a septic system to process household plumbing waste, and it's crucial to keep your system running smoothly. Steps can be taken to ensure your systems are running at maximum levels, such as scheduling a pumping every 3-5 years to reduce the buildup, but there are easier ways to stay ahead of the curve and save money in the long run! 

If you're looking to get a cleaner-clean in your home and stay within budget, you'll want to invest in green cleaners that aren't packed with lubricants, pesticides, chlorine, and more! You'll want to keep an eye out for cleaners packed with natural ingredients, such as citric acid. 

We offer a wide range of EPA Safer Choice Certified cleaners that are sure to work hard to bring out that sparkling clean! We've also gone a step ahead with our cleaners that have been certified "Designed for the Environment." That means that our products are biodegradable, phosphate-free, and septic-friendly. 

Looking to invest in our septic-friendly cleaners, here are quick links to zesty and mighty products: 

And if you're asking yourself, "What's the big deal if my cleaners are green or not?" it's key to keep in mind that environmentally, septic systems help create a positive contribution to the health and wellness of your local ecosystem. After a daily clean cycle, the used water is pushed through the septic system that helps nourish local bacteria and microorganisms, which stimulates plant and bacteria growth. This nourishment leads to a supply of food for local birds, insects, and larger animals.

When you invest in greener cleaning products, you're keeping your loved ones safe and contributing to a healthier ecosystem for all.
