Don’t Be Fooled by These Cleaning Myths

Don’t Be Fooled by These Cleaning Myths

Don’t be fooled by these cleaning myths!

Many people that think they have the best method for cleaning, but many are using myths that could be affecting how clean they’re getting their floors and surfaces. Your method might be the result of a cleaning myth. Check out some of these myths and the truth behind them.

Carpet Cleaning

Believe it or not, there are sorts of cleaning myths associated with cleaning your carpet and that carpet cleaning will do more harm than good. This myth has more to do with deep cleaning and steaming rather than just vacuuming. Some people believe that cleaning your carpet with techniques that involve moisture will leave it susceptible to mold growth, odors, and even shrinkage. That’s because these issues usually occur when the carpet is left too wet for too long. If you’re unsure about the process, hire a professional cleaning crew to do your deep cleaning with equipment that leaves your carpets dry and clean.

Wood Polishing

You don’t need to apply wood polish as often as you may think you do. Polishing your wood furniture too much could attract more dust or make the wood appear dull. Instead, skip the polish and go with some regular dusting to keep your wood furniture looking its best.

Cleaning Grout is Difficult

It’s understandable that many believe that cleaning grout is both a difficult and tedious task, but it doesn’t have to be. Although it’s not as difficult as it seems, it does take time. Use a mixture of baking soda, water, and a dash of vinegar to return your grout to its original luster with minimal effort.

Using Bleach on All Surfaces

Bleach is not the cure-all that many believe it to be. It works better as a secondary disinfectant rather than a solution to remove dirt, residue, and other food particles. Use an all-purpose cleaner first and follow up with bleach to fully sanitize the surface.
