We want to bring awareness to common cleaning mistakes that often slow down the entire process. By utilizing this awareness list, you can make cleaning easier. You’ll be able to avoid timely cleaning mistakes. So, sit back, relax, and get ready to have your cleaning days streamlined.
1. Don’t Forget the “Top to Bottom” Rule
When you don’t have the proper technique or game-plan, cleaning the floors in your home can be a daunting task. In order to get your home as clean as possible, start cleaning from the top, such as the fan, and make your way down to your homes carpet, tile, or hardwood. This way, dust, dander, and any other impurities floating around can be swept or vacuumed up.
2. Spraying and Scrubbing
One of the most common mistakes we make when cleaning our homes: spraying a cleaning solution and quickly wiping or scrubbing it away. Unfortunately, that’s not how cleaning products are designed to work. In order for the cleaning solution to properly break down those messes and stains, you have to wait a minute or two before wiping away the product in order for the solution to soak in and work its cleaning magic. Waiting after spraying the cleaner will save you time in the long run.
3. Cleaning with a Dirty Tool or Cloth
Knowing when it’s time to replace your current cleaning supplies is vital. Mops and the like should be replaced before they become too dirty in order to keep the floors clean and your home smelling fresh. A dirty mop is not only ineffective for sanitizing floors properly, but they can also cause unpleasant and lingering odors. Furthermore, other supplies can actually make your house dirtier if they are being used past the shelf life.
Cleaning can be time-consuming. Don’t make it any harder on yourself by committing these common cleaning errors. Stay mindful, remain diligent, and let’s get healthy South Florida!
