Cleaning Tools That You Should Be Using
Keeping your home clean isn’t just down to the hours that you put in, or the cleaning products that you use. If you aren’t using the correct or the best versions of your cleaning tools then you might find yourself struggling to get your home looking as good as you might like it to! Here is a list of the top cleaning tools that you need to get your home into shape.
1) Steam cleaner.
Steam cleaners are becoming more and more popular and it really is no wonder why! A steam cleaner is an incredibly useful cleaning tool that can be used in lots of different ways. Carpets, curtains, rugs, shower curtains, bathroom tiles, flooring, mattresses, bedding, pet beds and so much more can all be cleaned with a steam cleaner! Steam cleaning is one of the most efficient ways to kill bacteria in your home, and can even keep odours at bay too! If you don’t have the funds to buy your own then why not rent one? Some supermarkets and cleaning companies will rent you the equipment you need to clean your home effectively and affordably!
2) Steam cleaner attachments.
Whether you’re renting or if you have your own steam cleaner, it’s important that you make use of the included attachments. Although what your cleaner comes with can vary depending on make and model, you’re sure to find useful nozzles and attachments that can be used for different purposes, including bathroom cleaning and stair cleaning! Why not see what you can do with your steam cleaner by trying all of the available attachments?
3) Miniature vacuum cleaner.
A miniature vacuum cleaner is an excellent way for you to speedily clean up mess. Spills and dirt can be lifted and removed in just a few seconds, and you won’t have to struggle with your heavy and cumbersome main vacuum cleaner! Miniature vacuum cleaners are also fantastic for vacuuming your stairs, and they’re an invaluable item if you have pets that shed fur, too!
4) Carpet cleaner.
If you hire or purchase a carpet cleaner then you’re going to be shocked and horrified at the amount of dirt that will be lifted from your carpets! Although the carpets in your home may look clean, they’re almost definitely going to be home to bacteria and deep-seated dirt and grime that’s impossible to touch. Only a carpet cleaner will be able to do a thorough job and lift all of the dirt in your floors. You’ll be amazed at the results, so this is definitely worth doing on a regular basis!
5) Broom or plastic-bristled brush.
Brooms and plastic-bristled brushes aren’t commonly found in today’s modern household, but they really are great items to have. A broom or a dustpan and brush is a great way to quickly clean up mess in your kitchen, or to tackle your laminate flooring, but did you also know that a broom or brush can be beneficial to your carpets and rugs? Thoroughly brush your carpets and rugs before vacuuming and you’ll find that dirt is lifted much faster and will deliver better results!
6) Washing line.
Although not technically a cleaning tool, your washing line can help you to keep your whites whiter! The U.V rays of the sun are known to have a natural bleaching effect, so when the sun comes out make sure that your white laundry’s on the line too!
