About Tidy Tims
Ever wondered what was in your bottle of everyday household cleaner?
Have you ever been worried about the effect chemicals and germs can have on the health of your family, loved ones and even your pets? If you have asked these questions you are not alone.
A couple of years ago my husband Tim and I started asking these same questions and started on a journey to find real answers and solutions to these problems. Little did we know we would start a cleaning company and find ourselves obsessed with finding the safest way to clean our home.
It all started with reading labels and acknowledging the toxic chemicals we had been exposing ourselves to for years.
100% natural cleaning supplies
Becoming avid label readers,we jettisoned all of the toxic cleaners in our house that contained hazardous carcinogenic ingredients and switched them out for 100% natural cleaning supplies.
After doing a great deal of research on the subject, we came to the realization that cleaning is more that using natural products on your wood floors. It is also the method you choose to use!
At the time, my husband, Tim, was working for a healthcare company. He was becoming more and more worried over the growing cases of home infections from antibiotic resistant germs.
People who rarely left their homes were getting MRSA infections. We decided that we needed to do something to protect ourselves and our family.
A safer clean you can trust
While my husband investigated and researched to find cleaning methods that would be effective against germs, I looked into finding the best natural cleaning supplies on the market.
Trying out samples from various cleaning supply companies, as well as trying some homemade natural recipes, my husband and I found that we really enjoyed the challenges that come with cleaning. In fact, we enjoyed the challenge so much that we decided to start our own business.
Before starting Tidy Tim’s Essential Cleaning we decided to define the mission and vision of our company.
Unlike other cleaning companies that focus on giving customers as little time as possible, we have built our foundation on giving customers more time, we want our customers to have a safer clean, one that they can really trust!
We Researched the Best Clean
We formed Tidy Tim’s to be a company that cleaned the right way.
During his research, my husband consulted with public health experts, doctors, and clinical educators to find the best cleaning methods approved by organizations like the Center for Disease Control.
With all the information available out there we discovered just how poorly we had been cleaning our home. For instance, for any disinfectant to work properly we found that there is a required surface contact time that must be used.
What this means is that a floor would need to remain exposed to a product for however long manufacturers recommend for germs to be destroyed. This could mean keeping your floor wet for ten minutes or more to achieve the 99.9% germ kill advertised by some companies.
Who knew cleaning could be so complicated? We didn’t, but at least now we have the answers!
We Use Only the Best
Finding the right answer was one thing. Creating the right balance between sound cleaning method and natural cleaning solutions was another one entirely.
While a lot of cleaning supply companies make the claim that they sell green cleaning supplies, they are not all honest.
Some companies sneak carcinogenic chemicals into their products without ever informing the consumer on the label. Looking further into the issue, we decided that we would use only the best, which is why we chose and recommend GTC Greening the Cleaning products.
They are outstanding products that clean like they should, and give us peace of mind.
Natural cleaning methods first!
We want all of our customers to know about us is our firm committed belief that natural cleaning is always use natural cleaning methods first.
Cleaning and disinfecting does not require harsh chemicals like bleach and Lysol. It requires knowledge, the right solution, and above all time. We will always take the time to clean the right way!
Our cleaning mission will always be to kill germs, clean your house and give it a safe and healthy sparkle you can trust. If you have any questions do not hesitate to call or send us an email.
Sincerely, Tim and Rachel
