The majority of people are looking for ways to reduce the amount of chemicals that are being used in and around their home. If you look under most cleaning cabinets you will see cleaner after cleaner that claims to specialize in your bathroom, toilet, counters, wood, glass and much more. The problem is that there are a lot of ingredients in those cleaners that tend to be quite harsh and could really lead to damage. That is why it is important to know what options you have for a more natural cleaning solution when you are ready to tackle the household chores. Be sure that you understand the cleaning combination and how it might react to your surfaces and textiles. Every surface will react in a different way so be ready to test them out before you applying to a large area.

AAA Cleanco Lists Natural, Homemade Cleaners to Use in Place of Chemicals

Shower, Bathtub & Bathroom Surface Cleaners: If you go in the cleaning isle to look for a solution for your bathroom the amount of bottles you may see might be overwhelming. There is one that you are supposed to use in the toilet, one on the shower walls, one for the floors and others for the rest of the room. Do you need to go out and buy five or six cleaners for your bathroom? The answer is no, you can make up a solution at your home that will take care of all the surfaces. The best mix that you can use for a bathroom that has been found to beat soap scum and hard water stains is simply vinegar and baking soda. You can dilute this with water and use it on all the surfaces.
How To Clean Glass: There is a cleaner for everything but there is one that is always used on glass and mirrors. It is always a clear blue bottle that you spray on the mirror and or window and have it cleaned with a micro fiber cloth or paper towel. The interesting thing is that the blue cleaning solution is just ammonia which you can find in your cupboards at home. Vinegar has all the same properties that the blue solution does and can do the job just as good.
Carpet Stains & High Traffic Areas: The carpets are a huge problem when you come across a stain from a cup of coffee to dirty little feet that has brought mud in the house. Carpets are a huge area of the house and trying to keep stains off of them is a chore. There are cleaning solutions that are made for carpets but they can actually cause damage to the carpet. The best thing that you can do is to use baking soda, and warm water as a paste that can be used to treat many types of stains and spots. Be sure that you pretest it before using on a main area of the carpet.

When you suffer from allergies, you often seek out a sanctuary for some relief which is in most cases, your home. However when you still suffer from allergies inside your home it’s because there are a number of areas inside that contain and hold on to the contaminants that are triggering your allergies. If you are at a loss and aren’t sure which areas are causing you to have chronic allergies, AAA Cleanco will help identify those places and give you advice on how to make your home a refuge from allergies.

Why Are My Allergies Worse Indoors?

Carpets and Rugs – One of the top culprits inside your home that causes allergies is carpet and rugs. Due to the nature of the carpet material, the fibers can hold and even trap outdoor and indoor contaminants. Other additional sources of allergens in carpets are dust mites. One of the most coveted environments for dust mites is inside carpets, rugs and furniture. Dust mites leave behind dead skin flakes along with fecal matter which is often breathed in and causes allergies. It is important to help reduce contaminants in carpets and rugs by regularly vacuuming them. Make sure you vacuum in different directions to loosen the fibers and suck up most of the trapped contaminants inside the carpet. Additionally carpets should be deep cleaned about every 3 to 6 months.
Light Fixtures – One place that often gets overlooked is ceiling fans and light fixtures. Light fixtures and fans accumulate a lot of dust and other pollutants. As the HVAC unit or the ceiling fans run they disturb the dust. The airborne dust particles distributed through the air are breathed in. This will obviously trigger allergies. To properly clean light fixtures, use a vacuum to suck the majority of the dust then wipe them clean with a damp cleaning cloth to prevent airborne pollutants from getting into your home.
Bedding & Mattresses – Both the bedding and mattresses are filled with dead human skin, hair and other bodily fluids that together, creates the prefect recipe for allergies. Dust mites also infest mattresses. Because of the number of contaminates that our bedding and mattresses are exposed to, you will want to clean them often. Bedding should be washed with hot water and high heat once a week. Mattresses should be vacuumed and disinfected about every three months.
Mold & Mildew Growth – Places where mold and mildew grow contribute greatly to indoor allergens. Not only does mold and mildew cause allergies, they can also lead to serious illnesses as well. Places such as the kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry room need to be kept clean and organized. They should be regularly treated for mold. Additionally, look for areas with broken or leaking pipes which also lead to mold growth. Treating mold can easily be done with bleach. For those who find bleach to harsh, there are other cleaners that can kill and stop mold growth. However it is best to keep these areas as open and organized as possible to make it easier to clean and spot mold.
