Spring Clean Up....

April 17, 2017

We tend to focus so much on getting the tasks done that we don't pay attention to safety.

5 Simple Tips For Spring Cleaning:

*Wear a mask when cleaning dusty areas - This may seem like overkill to some, but if you are at all allergic to dust this tip is very important.

*Be safe while on ladders and step stools. - Do not lean too far to either side. A good rule of thumb is that your belly button should not go beyond the sides of the ladder.  Also, make sure that the rungs are not wet, and you are wearing non skid shoes.

*Put away all your cleaning supplies when you are done. - When you finally finish your spring cleaning tasks for the day it is easy to say to yourself, "I'll put these away later," or "I am just going to use these again tomorrow, so I'm keeping them out." Cleaning supplies are an attractive nuisance for our children and pets, something inviting that they should definitely not be getting into.

*Do not leave buckets filled with water around your home. - Even if you need to take a quick break make sure you empty that cleaning bucket, or at least put it in an inaccessible area. Even small amounts of water are a drowning hazard for small children.

*Ventilate, ventilate, ventilate your work area when using strong cleaning products and keep kids and pets away from the work area.
