1 - BUYING TOO MANY PRODUCTS.
You don't need separate cleaners such as all purpose, mould remover, kitchen cleaner, grout cleaner, bathroom cleaner, floor cleaner etc. etc. These multitude of products are there to just confuzzle you! In between your cleaners visits, for a great solution to all of these products, mix 20ml vinegar with 5ml eucalyptus oil. It works for all surfaces, as a sanitizer and freshener, is a great mould remover, and can safely be used on all floor surfaces, including food preparation surfaces.
2 - NOT KNOWING WHAT YOU'RE DOING.
Do you know to not use scourers on your stainless steel?
Did you know that spraying bleach can cause airborne particles to infiltrate your lungs?
Do you know not to wash your windows on a sunny day?
Did you know your skin is permeable so you should always wear gloves?
Do you know you're supposed to stack your cutlery in different ways so your spoons don't end up, er, spooning?!
Getting a professional cleaning service means you don't have to worry about these things and can sit back, relax, and enjoy your clean house (at least until the kids come home).
3 - NOT READING THE LABELS.
I know, I know, this takes time to read the instructions and sometimes a bigger effort to even understand them. But, a lot of money goes into the research and development of cleaning products with some of the worlds top scientists testing and re-testing before they perfect the usage, dosage, and balance. Some products are designed to be sprayed onto cloths rather than directly onto surfaces. Some oven cleaners are heat activated so need the oven switched on to work. Some will only work on certain surfaces and some may, for example, tarnish your stainless steel or rot your wood.
Always, always, ensure you read the instructions on your products. Or call us for information. We're a wealth of knowledge and are always happy to lend a helping hand.
4 - CLEANING DIRTY.
There's no point in cleaning using a cloth or sponge that has sat in your sink all day. Bacteria will have grown and using this to clean your kitchen benches can be more unsanitary than eating your dinner off your toilet seat - eeeeew. To sanitize sponges, just zap them whilst wet for 2 minutes in the microwave to kill off all those germs. On the subject of toilets, make sure the toilet brush fully dries before putting it back in it's holder.
5 - TRYING TO DO IT ALL YOURSELF.
