Spring has sprung and that means it’s time for spring cleaning. We have some helpful spring cleaning and safety tips for you because we know everyone can use a helping hand when it comes to sweeping away the dust bunnies. But before you get started, make sure you know how to properly use your cleaning solutions for a safe and effective job. Read the labels on all of your solutions and look out for words like poison, danger, and caution. You may need special equipment to use them or be in a well ventilated area to prevent harm.
