The Big Cleaning Mistakes

The Big Cleaning Mistakes

What is worse than spending an entire day cleaning? Spend a full day cleaning and finishing with a filthy house, perhaps even more polluted than you were when you started! Here are ten common cleaning errors to avoid:


Germs happily cling shoes, cleaning cloths, brushes, and sponges, so the last thing you should do is use the same tools to clean the kitchen that you used in the bathroom. Our PRO devices use color-coded clothing to prevent cross-contamination from one room to another and use disposable socks to ensure they do not carry dirt or germs from one home to another.

Using ineffective tools.

Still, dusted with a feather duster? You throw dust in the air and allow yourself to move everywhere. High- quality microfiber fabrics are the way to collect and permanently remove dirt. Choosing the most effective vacuum cleaner for your home is an amazingly complex decision. Even all-purpose essential cleaners deserve careful consideration of such factors as pH rinsing ability, safety.

Ignore cleaning and drying your tools

Place a dirty, damp sponge under the sink, and you will necessarily have a Petri dish to breed bacteria that will happily transfer to the dish, pots, or cutting board that you wash in it. The same applies to the brush that you use to shake the toilet and then stick it – wet – back to the holder. Clean and allow time to dry the air before storing the cleaning tools.

Skip the corners and crevices.

Even if it’s suitable for daily or weekly cleaning, there are likely to be angles and slits that are continually being ignored. Over time, these dirty little spaces begin to house mites, molds, fungi, and other types of odor-causing dirt.

Make sure that the bed is well made at the time you wake up.

It is worth to ensure that the mite that thrives on human are well controlled through dusting and exposed on dry, sunlit environments, love them when you make your bed in the morning. It is a best practice to leave the blankets, and top covers carefully folded and open the windows extensively to allow maximum sunlight.

Wash windows on a sunny day

The bright sun causes pupils to contract, making it challenging to detect dirt and scratches on glass panels. Also, the heat from the sun can quickly dry windows, making scratches more challenging to handle. Cloudy days (flat lighting) are best for efficient window washing.
Use wax for furniture. Polishing polishes wood surfaces by filling in scratches or embossing, making the surface smooth and reflects light.

Wrong cleaning.

Trained cleaning professionals do not work in any way. They begin at a point farther from the entrance to the house and gradually work toward the avoidance in the rooms inside the rooms, which leads to the accumulation of dust and dirt and ends up washing the floors.

Don’t think like a chemist.

The design of safe and effective cleaning solutions that dissolve and bond with dirt and oils is based on the suspension of water-bound particles and their removal from surfaces without leaving toxic chemical residues, depending on advanced science. Using inexpensive and poorly designed solutions, breaches, non-absorbent wipes, and inappropriate techniques can serve to clean up dirt and chemicals around surfaces instead of removing them.

Do not read and follow the instructions.

All advanced science involved in designing safe and effective cleaning solutions comes out of the window when the person using the solution does not follow all instructions and warnings. A typical example is to disinfect disinfectants and disinfectants with proper soaking time to ensure maximum disinfection.
