When cleaning a space, there are many ways that an individual can clean it incorrectly, and end up leaving a stain that is even worse than before. Other mistakes such as using the wrong cleaning products can potentially be dangerous to others living in the space if the cleaning products are poisonous. Here are some common cleaning mistakes that you should avoid:

1. Using The Wrong Cleaning Products

Using the wrong cleaning products can end up in stains looking worse, surfaces being damaged, and poisonous fumes being released. It is important that homeowners and property managers research the cleaning products they are using and whether they are good for their particular situation to avoid surface damage and potential health hazards.

2. Rubbing Stains Out Of Carpets

If you accidentally drop a dark-colored drink on your carpet, rubbing the stain out will only result in a bigger stain being left. Instead, you should lightly dab it and then use a carpet cleaning solution to get it out. Maca’s Cleaning Services offers carpet cleaning for customers using professional equipment so that your carpets are restored to a better condition. 

3. Using Dirty Cloths

After a few uses of cloth, wiping down surfaces will no longer clean the germs and bacteria that were on the surface. Instead, a dirty cloth will spread any previous germs that were on it and it will ineffectively clean your surface since it is not able to absorb as much. Cleaning your cloth every time after use is recommended so that you can use it as long as possible.

4. Not Cleaning Often

While many individuals may simply not have the time to clean their living or working space, cleaning your space often will keep you from saving all your cleaning for one day. If you save all your cleaning for one day, more dirt and dust will accumulate and it may become overwhelming. 

5. Using a Feather Duster

Using a feather duster to remove the dust from your surfaces is not as effective as using a microfiber cloth. With a feather duster, you are just spreading the dust around the surface instead of removing it.
