Common Mistakes People Make When Cleaning Their Residence
Visible dust, dirt, or grim, can paint a very unpleasant picture of your home to your visiting guests. Moreover, an untidy home can also harbor deadly germs and viruses that can harm you and your loved ones. Therefore, regularly cleaning your home will not only look pleasing to the eye but also will foster healthy living.
However, before you begin, it’s essential to make sure you approach your cleaning routine in the right way. As it is a tedious and time-consuming task and you may slip-up while not knowing how to use the cleaning products or equipment effectively. To help you avoid some basic errors that could prove to be costly, 3 Of J’s Residential and Commercial Cleaning Services has put together a list of the most common mistakes people make when cleaning their residence.
1. Not knowing the difference between a spot and a stain
One of the most common cleaning mistakes you’re probably committing is using the same method to treat a spot and a stain. Both words are almost similar, but there’s a difference when it comes to cleaning them. A stain cannot be removed, and it’s permanent, whether in color or texture of a stained item. Once you remove a stain, it cannot be restored, thereby causing a visible patch on an object. But a spot can be removed easily as it doesn’t change the color or ph balance of the object.
2. Ignoring ph balance
Like most homeowners, you may be unaware of the ph balance of some chemicals and their cleaning usage and may haphazardly use on any surface. Knowing the ph balance of cleaning chemicals is a must to avoid irreversible damages to the object’s surface. So, when purchasing a cleaner know about the ph balance and also is it safe on the intended surfaces you want to clean.
3. Don’t forget to clean the cleaning product and equipment
Not only should the entire home be cleaned and disinfected, but you must also clean and disinfect the cleaning products and equipment. These cleaning items are often kept back in place once you finish cleaning, these cleaning apparatus too can spread germs when they aren’t cleaned properly.
4. Overusing cleaner
Using too much cleaner can fade, stain, or cause textural damage to certain objects. When using any cleaners, it’s best to know what to use and how much you need to use it.
