Cleaning the house is not the most fun thing for most people. But if you have to do it - do it right, it is very easy to make mistakes, because of which the process can be delayed and become less effective.
So, 9 mistakes to avoid:
Too much water
Do not use too much water to clean upholstered furniture, as it dries badly, and mold can form. Also try not to use water to clean iron objects, as they may become rusty.
Dusting with a dry cloth
A dry cloth just spreads dust and dirt on the surface. The best option is a microfiber cloth, as it captures and holds dust particles.
Mix several cleaning products
More is not always better. Mixing ordinary cleaners containing ammonia, bleaching and detergent is a mistake. Such a mixture can damage laminate flooring, carpets and, moreover, its fumes are harmful to health.
Vacuuming at the start of cleaning
If you have vacuumed the floors before you washed all the furniture, then most likely you will have to do it a second time, since all the dust and dirt from the tables and shelves will be on the floor. Always vacuum at the end of the cleaning.
Wash windows on a sunny day
Although the dirt on the glass and see better when the sun is shining, but washing the windows is better to leave for cloudy weather. Because of the heat of the sun, the detergent dries quickly and as a result there are stains from it.
Forget to clean the vacuum cleaner
If you do not clean your vacuum cleaner, then it will most likely not suck in the dirt, but on the contrary, carry it around the house. Do not forget to replace the vacuum cleaner bags when they are one-third filled, or empty the containers after each use.
Use a polishing agent after each dusting
Modern furniture has a protective coating that does not need polishing after each cleaning. Sometimes use a slightly damp microfiber cloth to remove dust, and if you are using a polishing agent, use the same product all the time to avoid build-up of residue.
Spray directly on the surface
If you spray the product directly onto the surface of the furniture, this can create a layer that is difficult to remove and which attracts even more dust. To avoid this, apply the product on a rag, not on the surface of the furniture.
The worst mistake of all ...
... cleaning is not enough often. We are all very busy, but if we continue to delay the cleaning process, garbage, dirt and dust will accumulate and your home will not be so easy to clean. Better get out often, but for a bit - then the process will not bring you so much trouble, and the house will always be in perfect condition.
