The Dangers Of House Cleaning

Cleaning your home isn't normally regarded as "dangerous". Most people consider the physical demands of the job as the biggest obstacle when it comes to safety. However, what you're using as a cleaning agent can be very dangerous.

The world's most dangerous cleaning agent is bleach. Two Maids & A Mop doesn't use bleach because it causes way too many problems. It damages skin, causes respiratory problems, and burns throats, eyes, and tongues. Not to mention the adverse effects it has on fabrics and carpets. It discolors everything in its sight. For every one good thing bleach produces, it produces ten bad things.

There's other nasty cleaning agents out there. Some agents cause harm to everybody and others cause harm to just a few people. The best way to determine if your cleaning agent is safe for use in your home is to read the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). Here is the MSDS for Windex. You don't need to be a chemist to understand the MSDS. Take the time to read each MSDS before you use any cleaning agent in your home.

One healthy way to clean your home is to call Two Maids & A Mop. Each of our cleaning products are safe for use in almost every home. The only exception may be allergic reactions to odors such as lemon. If you don't live in our cleaning area, follow this lady's advice.
