The Difference Between a Room Looking Clean, and Being Clean

Posted on 01/17/15 in GREAT WHITE BLOG, No Comments

Remember back when you used to be told to clean your room? Typically, this consisted of taking things off the floor, folding your scattered clothes, and putting things back in their place. As long as the room looked put-together it was clean, right? Well,not exactly. Most people have a slightly skewed view of what cleaning actually is, so we would like to take the time to explain the very important details that most people might be missing.

Upgrading your Cleaning

While the common cleaning method of putting things in their places might make a room look good, it is in reality only œfixing up a room, not cleaning it. In order to really clean a room, it is vital to disinfect and utilize products on surfaces and objects that tend to harbor dust and germs. Neglecting the germs and dust that accumulates all over your house can pose as quite a health hazard. Spreading germs can lead to various illnesses and infections, while dust inhalation can cause problems from coughing and itchy eyes to more serious problems like lung disease, and it can aggravate conditions such as asthma and allergies. Allowing these problems to go untouched for large amounts of time can really affect your health and the health of those around you.

Evaluate and Attack
When evaluating what to clean, it is important to remember that the small things cannot be left out. Objects such as the buttons on a microwave may seem small and unimportant, but they are most likely touched more times and by more people than something as large as a countertop, meaning more harmful germs and bacteria are living there. After assessing which areas of your home or office you are focusing on cleaning, you want to be sure to have efficient disinfectants and sprays for the various surfaces you are working on. Additionally, changing the rags or towels you are using is very important to avoid contamination from one room to another. For instance, you would not want to use the same towels that you used in the bathroom that you will use in the kitchen, or in any room for that matter, because it would spread the germs to unwanted areas.
