Well, it’s almost summertime now! Is your Spring Cleaning complete?
I’ll be honest – mine is NOT! (I’ve been a little behind this year, probably due to being pregnant with twins, I don’t know…) but I’m almost there! Good thing, too – it’s pretty much summer!
And while we all feel better after a good cleaning to our homes, it’s important to remember that sometimes, cleaning can be dangerous! Watch out for things like…
- Asbestos – may have been used in your home in previous years, and can offer a nasty reaction if disturbed.
- Paint – all paints are considered hazardous waste! Make sure you dispose of them properly!
- Smoke detectors – some of them use radioactive materials to detect smoke! Yikes!
