It’s never pleasant to discover that something you’ve long believed to be true is actually a myth. However, when it comes to your house there’s just no time to waste on cleaning tips that don’t actually do the trick. That’s where we come in. We’re here to dispel some of the most common myths so that you can take effective steps to keep your home looking spotless. Let’s take a look at three cleaning myths that have very little truth behind them.
Myth #1: You can vacuum too much
This myth suggests that you can actually damage your carpet if you’re too quick to use a vacuum cleaner. The reality of the situation is that you risk causing more damage if you allow your carpets to accumulate too much dust and dirt without taking action. It’s true that you shouldn’t leave the vacuum in one spot for too long, but there’s really no such thing as over-using it; so don’t feel like you shouldn’t vacuum when your carpets need it.
Myth #2: Your machines clean themselves
It seems almost logical that your washing machine and dishwasher would clean themselves when doing their job. Sadly, it’s just not true. Both can accumulate filth if they’re not scrubbed down readily – which in turn can then cling on to your clothes and dishes when they are placed inside. You don’t need to clean the machines after every cycle, but you do need to be in the habit of doing it.
Myth #3: Bleach solves everything
Bleach is particularly handy in the bathroom and kitchen. It’s not, however, the only tool you need to do a decent job. The actual role of bleach is to act as a disinfectant. While it will kill bacteria and tackle stains, there are other products better served at doing the actual task of cleaning and you stand to benefit by using these as well as bleach. Luckily you don’t have to own these products yourself because VA Cleaning provides all the equipment needed when you take advantage of our domestic cleaning services in York.
