Spring is just around the corner, and for lots of people, that means finally taking the time to clean out their homes. While there are plenty of benefits to spring cleaning, there are a few risks as well. To ensure your cleaning session goes smoothly, continue reading for our top spring cleaning tips.
The reality is that cleaning products contain all kinds of toxic ingredients. Therefore, we recommend limiting the use of harsh products, such as bleach and ammonia, and instead opting for natural, plant-based cleaning products this spring. You can find a full list of EPA-approved disinfectants here.
When dealing with any type of household cleaner, it’s a good idea to wear rubber gloves. Gloves will help minimize contact between your skin and cleaning ingredients, which can help reduce the odds of skin irritation, a rash, or other types of allergic reactions.
Wearing a mask while cleaning is another great way to protect yourself from a potential allergic reaction or other form of irritation caused by being in close proximity to cleaning products. Plus, given that we’ve all been living with a pandemic for the better part of two years, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find a face mask.
Wet floors are a straight up hazard, responsible for plenty of slips and falls each year. For this reason, plan to wash your floors last and grab anything you need beforehand, moving it to another area of the house. This way, you can ensure the floors are completely dry before having to walk on them again.
Keep yourself and others safe this spring by cleaning safely. We also recommend signing up for the L.I.T. First Aid and Lifeguard Training courses to learn important first aid skills and CPR that could save your life, in the event that you or a loved one suffers from an allergic reaction caused by household cleaning products.
