At Good Sorts, we understand the importance of dispelling myths surrounding cleaning practices to foster a better understanding of how to maintain a clean and healthy environment. In this blog post, we will debunk common cleaning myths, providing clarity on effective and proven methods that contribute to a spotless and hygienic space.
Myth #1: “Cleaning and Disinfecting Are the Same Thing”
One prevalent misconception is that cleaning and disinfecting are interchangeable. The truth is, that while cleaning removes dirt and debris, disinfecting involves killing germs. Both are essential steps in maintaining a healthy environment. Our team at Good Sorts employs a comprehensive approach that includes cleaning to remove visible grime and disinfecting to eliminate harmful bacteria and viruses.
Myth #2: “Bleach Is Always the Best Cleaner”
Bleach is a powerful disinfectant, but it’s not always the best cleaner for every surface. It can damage certain materials, and its strong odour can be overwhelming. Good Sorts advocates for the use of a variety of cleaning agents tailored to specific surfaces and needs, ensuring effective cleaning without causing harm.
Myth #3: “Allergies Are Only Triggered by Outdoor Pollutants”
Indoor air quality plays a crucial role in allergies. Many believe that outdoor pollutants are the primary culprits, but indoor allergens like dust mites, mould, and pet dander can also contribute. Regular, thorough cleaning by our team helps reduce these indoor allergens, creating a healthier indoor environment.
Myth #4: “More Cleaning Product = Better Cleaning”
Using excessive cleaning products does not necessarily lead to better results. In fact, it can leave residues and potentially harm surfaces. Good Sorts emphasizes the importance of using the right amount of cleaning products and following recommended guidelines to achieve optimal cleanliness without compromising safety.
Myth #5: “It’s Better to Clean Less Frequently to Build Immunity”
While exposure to some germs can help build immunity, allowing dirt and germs to accumulate is not a healthy approach. Regular, consistent cleaning is vital for preventing the spread of harmful pathogens. Good Sorts recommends a proactive cleaning schedule tailored to the specific needs of each environment.
Myth #6: “Natural Cleaning Products Are Ineffective”
There’s a common belief that natural cleaning products are less effective than their chemical counterparts. In reality, many natural products, when used correctly, can be just as effective. Good Sorts embraces eco-friendly and natural cleaning solutions that contribute to a safer and healthier environment.
