Always follow the instructions
Apart from making sure that it is safe, many people have a habit of using more of the product than is recommended as they think it will go further or clean more effectively. However, the reality is that if you use more it will not clean better it will just lose you money as you have to keep replacing them.
Use the right tool for the job that you need
When cleaning it is important that you use the right tool for the job and also the tool that is correct for the flooring that you have. For example a vacuum cleaner wont be helpful in a job that requires a steam cleaner. If you have the tool available then it is best that you use what is required as otherwise you will have to replace the equipment which will be expensive.
