Therefore, take a little time to clean the utensils such as broom, mop, vacuum cleaner, sponges, toilet brush etc.

If you want to clean the house, then the hiring of the house cleaning services in Philadelphia is the correct decision. There are different tools available for the cleaning of the home. The finishing of the tasks is possible with proper attention and care. You need to know about it to have the benefits. 

The vacuum

If it is a bagless unit, the container should be empty and rinsed inside and outside with water and detergent or soap. They must be dry before assembly. If it has a unit bag, shake the dust excess and wipe the surface with a dry cloth. It should also be checked for any debris blocked hose. The exterior of the vacuum cleaner can be cleaned with a damp cloth and soapy water to remove collected germs.

Mop

Sponge mop can be washed with detergent, then rinse. In a bucket pour a cup of hot water and a cup of vinegar and let the mop in it for 30 minutes, then let it dry in an airy space. The end mop should be replaced every three months. Microfiber mop can be washed by hand or in the washing machine (especially if there are more) with warm water and detergent.

Broom

To remove dirt and debris, the broom should be easily hit on a solid object. At least once a month, the broom should be washed in hot water in which you need to add a few drops of dish washer detergent. Also in hot soapy water you can wash the dustpan. If you don’t want to spread the germs from one room to another, use different brooms (one for bathroom, another for kitchen), especially if you have pets.

Sponges

Kitchen sponges should be put on the top shelf of the dishwasher and wash every few days. The bathroom sponges should be washed in hot soapy water, then disinfected in bleach and held for a 5 minutes in water with vinegar.
