Is your floor cleaner making you ill?

Industrial floor cleaners contain strong chemicals and bleach. A reliable antiseptic liquid can offer higher protection minus the potential for harm.

The floors are often the most neglected part of the house. Most often, we don’t even consider them as components of the house furniture. At best, we sweep them and give a wipe down with a floor cleaner. But the floors get dirty really quickly and must be cleaned thoroughly – question is, what are you cleaning the floors with?

Why harsh floor cleaners are the worst…

People often mistakenly believe that the harsher the floor cleaner soap or liquid, the stronger the action on grime and germs on the floor.

At the outset, let us correct the notion that a harsher build-up of chemicals, acids and bleaches is required for cleaning the floor. Harsh chemicals and bleach may certainly dissolve surface dust and grime, and also kill germs spreading on the floor. But the trade-off is not worth it: you and your family members using these floors are exposed to the same harsh chemicals. This type of floor cleaner might contain substances that can irritate the skin, aggravate existing respiratory problems, and even cause toxic shock in pets and infants.

If you are guilty of using such harmful floor cleaners, it is time to make a clean break from them and invest in an antiseptic liquid that does the job of cleaning and disinfection without harming you or your loved ones.

The right kind of floor cleaner – complete cleanliness without harm

Leading brands manufacture antiseptic, antibacterial liquids that have multiple uses. They can be used for disinfecting most things, from human skin and clothes, to floors and other surfaces in the house. They provide up to 99% germicidal action, while being completely mild on the skin. Plus, they give off a pleasant aroma that does not cause headaches or respiratory issues.

Here’s how you use it:

  • Add the antiseptic liquid to a bucket of clean water as directed on the bottle. Mix thoroughly.
  • It is preferable to keep the doors and windows open in the room, and to let sunlight stream in as much as possible when you wipe the floors.
  • Wipe the floors with using a clean duster dipped in the cleaning water. Get the corners and edges of the room where dirt tends to accumulate. Let the floor air dry before you walk on it.
  • Do this every day, especially during flu or common cold season. The cleaning water using the antiseptic liquid can also be used to wipe down the kitchen surfaces, wall tiles in the kitchen and bathroom, metal surfaces such as door handles and knobs, etc. It ensures disinfection of all the surfaces of common use, and which might be rife with germs.
