Hi my name is Jeremiah Johnson; I’m the owner and operator of S&J Cleanaway. I’m going to be giving you some quick tips on safety while cleaning a restroom. First and foremost, I recommend using some type of glove to protect you from germs and also in case you were to get some chemicals on your hands. With chemicals you always want to make sure that you read your labels so know safety precautions if you get it in your eyes or on your skin. You’re always going to want to make sure that you do not mix any of the chemicals together. It could be really harmful if you happen to do that. You’re going to want to make sure that you’re in a well ventilated area when cleaning a bathroom; you don’t want all of the chemicals in the air to take you over. You want to make sure that your chemicals are always locked up in case you have kids or pets around the house. You don’t want them handling those. And they’ve come out with a lot of products recently that are of zero health hazard, that means that while you’re cleaning there’s less of a chance that you’re going to be injured, you can come in contact with your skin a little more, everything will be okay. That will be about it for cleaning safety tips.
