Unless you are a sociopath who only cares about your own personal needs, there is a fairly strong level of certainty that you would at least somewhat care about climate change. This would lead to you wanting to prioritize the use of environmentally friendly solutions including switching to public transport instead of gas guzzling cars as well as adopting a plant based diet so that the carbon emissions from the meat industry can be curbed to an extent. You should also extend this climate conscious mindset to carpet cleaning, since suffice it to say that there are some methods for cleaning rugs that are less environmentally friendly than others.
If we were to take the example of commercial carpet cleaning, some cleaning methods use harsh chemicals that can leach into the water supply. The thing is, chemical based carpet cleaning is widely considered to be inferior to hot water extraction because of the fact that it only cleans the topmost surface of the rug. What’s more is that steam based cleaning is famous for being extremely environmentally friendly due to the reason that it does not utilize chemicals to any extent and instead it relies solely on water which will never do the world any kind of harm.
At the end of the day, living an environmentally sustainable lifestyle does not have to be as complicated as we make it. Oftentimes the safer solutions are also more effective, and that means that you will not have to compromise on quality in order to ensure the continued habitability of the only planet that we currently know of that is capable of sustaining human life for the most part.
