It’s no secret that cleaning is a necessary evil. t’s important to keep our spaces clean and organized – not just for aesthetics, but also for our own health. However, cleaning can be even more of a challenge when we’re using the wrong tools for the job. So how do you know when it’s time to switch up your cleaning tools? Here are a few tips:

Any tradesman will tell you that the tools they use are the most important factor of whether they can do their job well. An artist is only as good as their paintbrush will allow, and an Olympic runner can’t be as fast with the wrong pair of shoes.

In the same way, your household cleaning supplies can make your cleaning chores easier, or harder! By changing out old sponges, mops, and rags that aren’t getting the job done, you’ll be able to clean your home in a fraction of the time and with a fraction of the effort.

Here are some tips on when you should change your cleaning tools.

Kitchen Sponges – Every week, or use bleach to kill bacteria and make them last longer.

Mops – Every two months.

Rags – Every two months.

Rubber Gloves – Only once you see tears, holes, or other signs of degradation.

Vacuum Cleaners – Every few years, depending on the suction and with good maintenance.

Cleaning Solutions – Check the expiration date marked on the bottle.

Brooms – Every few years with good maintenance, unless too many bristles are missing.

Assessing damage and ensuring that each of your tools is being used with optimized quality of performance is necessary for all homeowners. Take good care of your equipment in use and avoid consistent replacements by upgrading the quality as well.

Also, cleaning on your own can be time-consuming, which is frustrating because it is necessary. If you are in need of assistance with your home and want to learn more, we’re here to help.
