The worst part about home cleaning is spending so much of your time and energy on it, only to yield below average results. It’s highly frustrating and disappointing to say the least. Moreover, you probably can’t figure out why your time and efforts have gone in vain because you’ve done everything right. Well, did you consider the fact that you maybe be using the wrong cleaning tools for the job?
The market is constantly offering new cleaning products and tools that make it rather confusing to select from. While some of them DO make household cleaning easier and more efficient, other “advanced” products provide the same results as their regular counterparts. With that said, let’s look at five of the most important cleaning tools you need to maintain a clean home.
Important Cleaning Tools You Need to Have at Home
Vacuum Cleaner with Attachments
Not only are they convenient to use but is more efficient in picking up dust as compared to brooms. What’s more, they generally come with multiple attachments for cleaning other areas of your home including ceiling corners, narrow spaces, window and doorframes, upholstery and more! It’s wise to read through the user manual to ensure that you get the most out of each attachment head.
Microfiber Dust Cloths
Do away with all other dusting aids because microfiber cloths are all you need to dust furniture efficiently! Owing to their electrostatic charge, microfiber cloths attract dust and make it cling to the material with one swipe. This eliminates the need to go over the same spot twice like you would typically do with a regular duster. Hence, we suggest ever household stock up on microfiber dust cloths!
Set of Scrubbers
From doing dishes or cleaning stovetops, to cleaning bathroom surfaces or the interiors of your refrigerators; scrubbers are used in various areas of household cleaning. However, certain kinds of cleaning demand different types of scrubbers; i.e. soft, mildly abrasive or abrasive. Therefore, we suggest buying a set that includes all three for more efficient cleaning with scrubbers.
Set of Bathroom Brushes
With so many different components of a bathroom, you obviously need different cleaning aids for efficient and hygienic cleaning. These come in the form of bathroom brushes and scrubbers (which we’ve already mentioned above). Here are three must-have bathroom brushes for every household:
- Long-handled tile brush
- Toilet bowl brush
- Flat-head tile brush
Suitable Mop for Your Type of Flooring
A mop is a necessary cleaning aid to get your floors stain-free and gleaming; however, there are plenty of different types of mops on the market to choose from. Depending on what type of flooring you have, one of the following can be chosen says Mikail of Duty Cleaners a cleaning company in Edmonton AB.
- Tiled floors: Synthetic string mops are great for cleaning tiled floors, as are sponge mops; however, the former is more convenient to use.
- Hardwood flooring: We suggest microfiber padded mops with removal heads.
- Marble floors: A soft and absorbent material is advised for cleaning marble floors such as cotton string mops.
