How to Make Your Home More Environmentally Friendly

How to Make Your Home More Environmentally Friendly


Tomorrow is Earth Day, the day when we remind ourselves that our environment needs our help in order to thrive. People often think that efforts to improve the environment have to be large, grand gestures like planting trees or restricting industrial pollution. Those are certainly good things, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t make your own home more environmentally friendly. Let’s have a look that the things you can do to make your home more “green” in honor of Earth Day.

Stop Using Chemical Cleaners

Homeowners often use all sorts of harsh chemicals in house cleaning, especially in their bathrooms. Pouring bleach and other chemicals down your drains to clean them will not only corrode your pipes, but will make their way through your sewer system and out into the environment. Using them to clean surfaces also generates poisonous fumes that can be quite hazardous, especially when mixed together. Instead of using these caustic solutions, call Rooter Man instead. We use Bio-Clean, which is a completely safe blend of bacteria and enzymes. Bio-Clean can clean your bathroom and drains just as well as other cleaners, without all of the nasty side effects. So, if you need your drains cleaned, call us today.

Install a Low-Flow Toilet

Toilets use an incredible amount of water per flush, far more than is strictly necessary to remove waste. That has led to the invention of low-flow toilets, which still fulfill their purpose without all that unnecessary water waste. Installing a low-flow toilet in your home is a very easy way to save hundreds of gallons of water every year. If you’d like to help preserve the environment, conserving water is a great way to do it. So give us a call, and we’ll install a low-flow toilet for you.
