While it’s important to get into a routine, it’s also tremendously important that you remember to clean your house the right way. Dirt and grime can spread to clean areas in your home because of improper cleaning or cleaning with older supplies. Here are 4 tips to ensure you’re cleaning your home the right way:
1) Dust first: To ensure that you’re not pushing dirt and grime around while mopping, we suggest you sweep and vacuum your floors first. If you have to clean your counters or fan blades, clean them first so you can sweep up the dust that falls to the floor.
2) Wait after you spray: Many of us have used our cleaning spray on a countertop or a table, only to wipe it away instantly. Next time you use a cleaning spray, give it a few minutes to set in and soak.
3) Update your supplies regularly: When was the last time you sanitized or updated your mop? How about changing or soaking your vacuum filter? While your home may look cleaner, you may be further contaminating your home while using older supplies. Make sure your cleaning supplies are working the way they’re supposed to and try to replace them every few months.
4) Reduce window streaks: Did you know the direct heat from the sun can actually cause your window cleaner to dry too quickly, leaving noticeable streaks. Try to clean your windows earlier in the morning and wait until it’s cooler so you can ensure you’re not leaving behind any residue.
