Fresh Tech Maid Announces the “Healthy Home Giveaway”

Award-winning cleaning service offers three free eco-friendly cleaning kits 

Fresh Tech Maid, a Chicago-based home cleaning service, is delighted to present their “healthy home giveaway.” Three lucky winners of this giveaway will receive a custom healthy home cleaning kit, the same one that Fresh Tech Maid’s professional and certified cleaning technicians use every day to make homes sparkle!

This kit is designed to reduce cleaning chemicals by at least 95% for regular maintenance cleanings, so your home is cleaner, healthier, and safer for adults, kids, pet, and the Earth. This cleaning kit includes three varieties of microfiber cleaning cloths (green for the bathroom, red for the kitchen, and blue for general surfaces) to prevent cross-contamination, along with special agitation tools for an extra deep clean (scraper, whisk broom, sponges, microfiber mop cover, and a cleaning “toothbrush”). These cleaning implements can be used on any surface in the home.

The healthy home cleaning kit also includes one bottle of Fresh Tech Maids’ personal brand of de-ionized water to promote safe, chemical-free cleaning. De-ionized water is H2O in its purest form, making it an eco-friendly yet powerful solvent suited to all cleaning needs. It is the most effective, chemical-free general cleaner you will ever find!

“We are thrilled to give away three chemical-free home cleaning kits,” said Wells Ye, owner of the award-winning Fresh Tech Maid. “Our passion at Fresh Tech Maid is to provide home cleaning services without the use of harsh and harmful chemicals,” he said. “All of our products are certified eco-friendly, which is better for people and the environment.  More and more people are starting to realize what we have known all along,” he adds. “A home can be even cleaner without the use of chemicals.” 

In addition to a bottle of DI water, the healthy home kit includes a multi-purpose, eco-friendly cleaner, formulated to handle everyday cleaning tasks, as well as heavy-duty challenges. This non-VOC, bio-degradable product is something our Fresh Tech Maid technicians use every day for a safe and powerful clean. For added convenience, the kit also includes a multi-pocket apron to carry the cleaning tools with ease. The value of the kit is $80. The giveaway runs from Monday, September 18 through Sunday, October 22.

Wells Ye and the team at Fresh Tech Maid hope this kit will help families enjoy a clean, healthy, and chemical-free home! Visit to enter the giveaway, which ends Sunday, October 22, 2017.

How Heavy Is Your Child’s Backpack?

When kids carry more than 10% of their body weight, injuries can lead to health problems lasting into adulthood

BETHESDA, MD (Sept. 19, 2017) — Schools are in session across the U.S. and more than 79 million backpack-carrying students are settling into new routines – some of which include bringing the same items home each afternoon. Think the books and school supplies that your child is carrying in a backpack slung haphazardly across one shoulder are harmless? Think again. Heavy loads can cause injuries and low back pain that often lasts through adulthood.
“A child wearing a backpack incorrectly or that is too heavy can be contributing risk factors for discomfort, fatigue, muscle soreness, and musculoskeletal pain especially in the lower back,” says Karen Jacobs, EdD, OTR/L, CPE, clinical professor of occupational therapy at Boston University, and an expert on school ergonomics and healthy growth and development of school-age children.

Luckily, preventing discomfort and pain is simple. The American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) offers the following tips for keeping kids safe while toting books to and from school:
  • Always select a backpack that is the correct size for your child.
  • Make sure the height of the backpack extends from approximately 2 inches below the shoulder blades to waist level, or slightly above the waist.
  • Always wear well-padded shoulder straps on both shoulders so the weight is evenly balanced.
  • Distribute weight evenly. Load heaviest items closest to the child’s back and balance materials so the child can easily stand up straight.
  • Wear the hip belt if the backpack has one, to improve balance and take some strain off sensitive neck and shoulder muscles.
  • Check that the child’s backpack weighs no more than 10% of his or her body weight. If it weighs more, determine what supplies can stay at home or at school each day to lessen the load.
  • If the backpack is still too heavy for the child, consider a book bag on wheels.
Thousands of students, educators, parents, and health professionals will mark National School Backpack Awareness Day on Sept. 20 with backpack weigh-ins, backpack check-ups, activities, and special events.
