Natural Green Cleaners is an eco-friendly carpet cleaning, upholstery, tile, and wood floor cleaning business in Norman. They use environmentally friendly cleaners that are safe for your family and pets. Their cleaning methods use less water and electric equipment instead of dirty fuel power equipment that is low and bad for the environment.
We got the chance to talk to Michael, the owners of Natural Green Cleaners, and this is what he had to say.
GO: Why did you decide to open Natural Green Cleaners?
Michael: I wanted to start my own business and I had some experience in carpet cleaning, so I thought about how I could make it better and improve upon what others are doing.
GO: Why is it important to you that your business is eco-friendly?
Michael: I feel good knowing that I am not leaving harmful chemicals in my customer’s homes. I’m also trying to set an example for other businesses and entrepreneurs that green is the responsible way to go.
GO: What’s the best advice about going green you have ever gotten?
Michael: “It’s not easy being green” – Kermit. No really, what I mean by that is that running an eco-friendly business takes constant diligence in thinking about what you’re doing and what impact it will have. Also, it’s not as easy just to go pick up the green cleaners I use at the local supply store, those kinds of products are not real popular here in Oklahoma so it takes some effort to seek them out.
GO: What’s your favorite service you offer?
Michael: I enjoy carpet cleaning. It’s very calming to run the machine and it’s also very gratifying to go into a home and see the dirt and then when I leave its nice and clean, I feel a sense of accomplishment. We also offer upholstery cleaning, tile cleaning, and wood floor cleaning.
GO: Why do you feel it’s important to support locally owned businesses?
Michael: Locally owned businesses are run by your friends and neighbors. Its great meeting them and they’re always more than willing to discuss their products and services with you. There is a passion there that you don’t get from big box chains and corporations.
GO: What is your favorite thing to do in Oklahoma?
Michael: I’m an outdoor enthusiast. I enjoy hiking, camping, hunting mushrooms, and fishing all across the state, but most of all in far South East Oklahoma.
GO: Other than your own business, what is your favorite eco-friendly business in Oklahoma?
Michael: There is a business called Fertile Ground in Oklahoma City. They do restaurant composting and residential compost pick-up diverting food waste into useful nutrient rich compost. They also do zero waste events in which they recycle and compost all the waste and trash from special events. They build compost bins and raised bed gardens as well.
