water conservation

To live in an eco-friendly home, you will need to conserve energy, use all-natural products and practice water conservation too. The practice of water conservation is to waste as little water in your home as possible. Here are some ideas on how to accomplish this in your home:

The easiest way to conserve water in your home is to take shorter showers. The average shower lasts around 5-10 minutes. If you reduce that to 2-3 minutes you will save hundreds of gallons of water every day in your home.

You should also not run your sink while brushing your teeth. Many people in San Antonio will run their sink the entire time they brush their teeth despite it not being necessary. Only turn on the sink to rinse after you are done brushing your teeth.

You should only run your dishwasher when it is full. You could conserve water if you wash some dishes by hand too. You should only run your washing machine for a full load too.

For carpet cleaning, schedule a San Antonio carpet cleaner that uses a low-moisture method. Don’t hire a steam cleaner or use rental carpet cleaning machines. Chem-Dry of Bexar County in San Antonio uses one-fifth the amount of water as steam cleaners use. We also only use all-natural products throughout our service.

Outside of your home you should try to water your lawn less. Don’t run sprinklers and hoses too often. This is another easy way to reduce water use. If you do use sprinklers, be sure to set timers on them so they don’t run any longer than necessary.

You can also collect rain water and use that water to water plants at a later date.

We hope these ideas help you conserve water in your home! Don’t forget for carpet cleaning in San Antonio to call (210) 680-4891 for Chem-Dry of Bexar County.
