Trend Spotted: Clean Is In!

These are your essential tools for cleaning and disinfecting your home, all available at Wilcon

As we hunker down for a few more weeks, we must get into the habit of regularly cleaning our homes and sanitizing all surfaces for our safety and the safety of our loved ones. It’s important that we keep our spaces free of clutter and to disinfect constantly because unwanted germs and viruses (which are invisible to the eye) can harbor on different surfaces for hours.

Here’s how to more easily keep your house spic and span, and gain the confidence that your home is a sanctuary you can feel safe in.

Smooth or flat surfaces

When cleaning flat surfaces such as floors, wall tiles, and windows, some may think that sweeping or dusting is enough. But to ensure that the surfaces have been thoroughly cleaned, it is also crucial to clean them by mopping or wiping.

Roller mops are an ideal cleaning tool for your home with its “pull and lift” wringer level for faster cleaning, a sponge mop head that has a stronger water absorption than a regular mop, and a long, adjustable stainless handle for added durability.

For windows and tiled walls, using a squeegee is a great choice. It doesn’t get saturated with water unlike regular wiping cloth, it allows a faster and more efficient cleaning, and is great for removing excess moisture to prevent water spots from forming.

Hard to reach surfaces

Cleaning is truly a tough chore. You’ll never know when and if you have cleaned all corners and parts of your home. To help you get the job done, you can simply use a thick paintbrush to sweep out dirt from corners and tight spaces. Truper offers a wide array of paintbrushes perfect for cleaning and getting creative.

You can also use a sweeper that comes with a dustpan. Its elongated design can fit perfectly into narrow spaces then head straight to the dustpan making a faster and more efficient cleanup. In areas beyond your reach such as ceilings and rooves, you can always use ladders. That way, you can see more clearly what needs to be done and allow you to clean more efficiently. You can check out ladders and other outdoor products from P.Tech that are made from high-quality materials for long lasting use.
