At Carolina Cleaning Company, we work with facilities managers, CEO’s and Vice Presidents up and down the county, and one thing that we always get asked, is how to pick the best products for cleaning your home?

There really is no place like home. And now, more than ever, it’s critically important to make sure yours is a safe place to live and work. With busy schedules, multiple generations under one roof, household pets, and around the clock catering, things can easily slide.

At Carolina Cleaning Company, we believe in taking proactive measures to prevent the unnecessary spread of bugs and germs. That means wiping surfaces down immediately after use, regular cleaning routines, and the spraying of multi-touch surfaces, such as door handles and light switches.

But what kind of products should you be using? To prevent illness, mix a quarter cup of bleach with a gallon of hot water, or look for a disinfectant product which contains hydrogen-peroxide, or at least 70% alcohol. Carpets can be washed with hot soapy water, and opt for a laundry cycle on at least 60°C to kill bacteria living in clothing, towels and bedding.

Frequent use of harsh chemicals can irritate and damage the skin’s barrier, so always wear gloves, and read the label when using new products.The United States Environmental Protection Agency, has published a list of CDC approved cleaning solutions that you can pick up at the grocery store.
