Benefits of eco-friendly citrus based cleaning solutions compared to traditional chemical based carpet cleaning solutions.

Eco-friendly citrus-based carpet cleaning solutions offer several benefits compared to traditional chemical-based cleaners. Here are some of the key advantages:

Natural and Biodegradable

Citrus-based cleaners are typically derived from natural ingredients such as citrus fruits, specifically their peels or extracts. These formulations are often biodegradable, meaning they can break down naturally without causing harm to the environment.

Reduced Chemical Exposure

Unlike conventional carpet cleaners that may contain harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances, citrus-based solutions tend to be free from toxic substances. This reduces the risk of chemical exposure for both the people using the product and those living or working in the cleaned space.

Environmental Sustainability

By utilizing citrus peels or extracts, these cleaning solutions make use of a renewable resource that would otherwise go to waste. This helps reduce the demand for petroleum-based chemicals commonly found in traditional cleaners, contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly cleaning process.

Pleasant Scent

Citrus-based cleaners often have a refreshing and natural citrus scent, which can help improve the indoor air quality and leave a pleasant fragrance in the cleaned area. This is in contrast to the strong, artificial odours associated with some conventional carpet cleaning products.

Effective Cleaning Power

Citrus extracts contain natural enzymes and solvents that can effectively break down and remove stains, dirt, and grime from carpets. They can be equally as effective as or even more effective than chemical-based cleaners, offering a clean and fresh result.

Safer for Allergies and Sensitivities

Many conventional carpet cleaning products contain allergens, irritants, and potentially harmful chemicals that can trigger allergies or sensitivities in individuals. Citrus-based cleaners are generally considered safer for those with allergies or sensitivities, as they tend to have fewer known allergens and are less likely to cause adverse reactions.


Citrus-based carpet cleaning solutions are often versatile and can be used on a wide range of carpet types and surfaces. They can effectively clean both synthetic and natural fibres without causing damage or discoloration.

It’s worth noting that all citrus based carpet cleaning solutions used by Metro Carpet Cleaning are certified Wool Safe.
