5 Cleaning Solutions You Need to Avoid Using

by Parker R. Brody

You might have heard the phrase “The world is no more safe,” and all such terms pop up from time to time due to the consequences and actions of different individuals. However, what matters to you the most is how safe you are currently at this moment. Some of you don’t care and display concern about what is happening all around you. Hence, for you will, whatever you are doing in your personal and professional life is what you need to think or ponder upon. And this care and concern include even the cleaning process of your commercial and residential property. Therefore, you must have an idea about those cleaning products or solutions that you need to avoid using as they may aggravate or affect health in the worst manner. And this informative piece will help you understand the complete picture.


Bleach is one of the most conventional, traditional, and most used cleaning methods since the time of its invention. It brings a cost-effective quotient and allows you to opt for it most of the time. However, it has cons also attached to it. With it being one of the most common cleaning products, it is one of the most dangerous household items as it leads to many injuries, especially chemical burns when it comes into contact with skin. The fumes that it produces after getting in touch with the skin create irritation in the lungs, nose, eyes, and throat. Hence, people who have asthma will face a bad situation as it can trigger an attack.

Drain Blockers

Drain Blockers are like the escape route that you always seek when it comes to resolving the clogging of food wastes in the pipeline. Otherwise, you know the consequences, and you might have witnessed them frequently. Hence, it is this product that you might be using periodically. But, there’s a glitch attached to this product as well. And the main issue related to it is its highly corrosive constituent, caustic soda. Caustic soda also causes chemical burns, and if ingested, it can heavily impact the esophagus and throat. And the worst-case scenario attached with the exposure of such chemicals is death. 


Formaldehyde is a key chemical found in heavy-duty cleansers, the liquid applied on the metal body or sheets to ensure that it doesn’t erode or affect their surface. Formaldehyde is one of the most common chemical agents used in industrial plants or workshops. However, it is no less than a disaster as it has some neurological effects associated with it, especially Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, ALS, a neurodegenerative disease that gradually eliminates the ability of the brain to control other body parts. In addition to this, you may see problems like depression, mood swings, headaches, insomnia, and attention deficit.

Oven Cleaners

You will surely search for some effective solution if you want to clean your oven, the one which absorbs heat and oil in one place, thus witnessing a type of coating every time and compelling you again and again to avoid such coating finding a permanent place. And, for this reason, oven cleaners are the right answer. But there’s a bug attached to it too. And, it is again due to components present in this cleaning agent, i.e., lye, ethers, methylene chloride, and petroleum distillates. All these constituents may start a nasal problem once you inhale them.


Ammonia is one of the most preferred options when it comes to using a cleaning product as a polisher or glass cleaner as it allows you to give a streak-free and restore the original of items present in your house or commercial space that you own. But, try avoiding this cleaning solution if you have someone who has a breathing problem as it starts creating discomfort immediately by giving an irritation to the human tissue. In addition to this, you will see problems related to mucous membranes and the cardiovascular system.


So, think again whenever you are procuring something as a cleaning agent by assessing the component used in it and it doesn’t affect you and your family’s health in any condition. Ensure the same whenever you are hiring a specialist for end of lease cleaning.
