Skydiving, racecar driving, residential cleaning…what do all of these have in common? This might come as a surprise, but safety is a concern for all of these things. That’s right, safety is something that everyone should think about when it comes to cleaning their Malvern homes. Here are four tips from ServiceMaster by ARTec for cleaning safety.
- Ventilate rooms before you clean Some cleaning products can be dangerous to breathe in large concentrations. Liquids like bleach and other cleaning items can be harmful to your respiratory system, so it’s important to make sure your room is well ventilated before you use these products. This will prevent harmful chemicals from being inhaled, making your residential cleaning safer and healthier.
- Always keep chemicals out of reach of children There’s a reason there are “if ingested” instructions sit on the back of every bottle of bleach and cleaner. It’s incredibly important to keep cleaning products in a place that children do not have access to. One option is keeping your cleaning supplies in a cabinet too high for children to reach. Another option is locking a low cabinet or storage place for your products. Either way, make sure that you keep a close eye on how you store your residential cleaning supplies in your Malvern home for safer cleaning.
- Beware of bacteria One goal of residential cleaning is to rid your Malvern home of bacteria, but what some don’t realize is that dangerous bacteria can latch onto one of your most common cleaning items: your dishcloth and cleaning rags. Clothes that are often moist can harbor bacteria, making your residential cleaning routine not so clean. Be sure to change out dishcloths and rags often to reduce the presence of bacteria, mildew, and mold that can grow on your damp rags and clothes.
- Wear rubber gloves The chemicals in cleaning products can be harsh on your skin. Not only can they dry out your hands and cause cracks in your skin, but when chemicals are on your hands, it’s possible that those chemicals can find their way into your eyes, nose, and mouth if you touch your face. Rubber gloves are a great way to keep cleaning products off of your skin and face while cleaning your Malvern home.
