Home Cleaning – Which Products To Use?
Are you thinking about cleaning yourself? It is okay to do it even if you regularly hire cleaning services. Bathroom will probably be one of the places that require some additional cleaning between the visits of your maids. Now, if you are wondering which products you should use, don’t worry, we are here to help you.
You don’t have to buy anything fancy or expensive in order to clean say, your bathroom. You can use baking soda and vinegar, it is that simple. These products are not expensive, they are available in most of the stores, plus they are eco-friendly, which is a good thing to pay attention to.
Are you, on the other hand, interested in the products your cleaning service uses? We will discuss this in the rest of the article.
Which products will cleaning services use?
Maids will usually come with their own products. There are more reasons for this, but it is basically about two main things. First of all, productivity and training purposes are the issue. Maids are using specific products which they have gotten used to. This in turns leads to a more efficient and safely performed job. The other reason is because of the customers themselves. It is a lot easier if the only thing you have to do is make an appointment. Imagine if you are cleaning an entire home and you have to provide all of the products yourself. If this was the case, you would not actually be able to rest, which raises the question: What is the point of hiring a cleaning service anyway? Plus, one advantage of maids providing their own products is that you will not have to stack up all of them yourself, except maybe for some essential ones. This relieves you of a lot of your troubles, especially when it comes to small kids because the fewer chemicals there are the safer the children are.
So, in general, maids will probably use their regular products, but if you have something in specific you would like them to use, feel free to say it. You should even say that you do not want them to use a specific product, whether it is because of on allergy, smell, or whatever. It is advisable in the situations like these that you offer an alternative, though. Also, if you are offering a product of your own, it is good that you provide a material safety data sheet – MSDS. Professional cleaning companies are required to have MSDS, as it contains all of the information regarding the product – its chemical composition, safety of usage, chemical reactivity, etc. A good cleaning company will also provide the service of green cleaning, so if you are interested in it, look for it as well.
What is green cleaning? It refers to the cleaning using green products, which are usually non-toxic and environmental friendly. So in general, green products are safer for you and your family. It is important to mention though that this does not mean using non-green products will have negative results. These products have been used for decades and professional cleaning services have a good experience with their usage. Moreover, the maids hired are first trained regarding the safety of usage, which leads to a risk-free job even if we are talking about non-green products.
