By now, we all surely know that there can be situations when we won’t have a domestic help to assist us with daily household chores, like cleaning. While you can skip cleaning for a day or two when no help is around, you can’t put it off indefinitely, especially when keeping your home germ-free is more important than ever.

Here are some tools that can help you keep your home clean, without making you break into a sweat.

Spin Mop

A great floor-cleaning device, it comes in two parts—a twin bucket which carries the water and a spin mop with a long handle. A spin mop works well on all kinds of floors, whether wooden, tiled, marbled or textured, and allows you to clean floors without getting down on your hands and knees or having to touch dirty and unclean surfaces.

You can reach those tough-to-get-to, under-the-bed-type tricky spaces, and then simply wash and wring the mop in the bucket. All the dirty water gets accumulated in the container without any spillage and you can simply drain and wash it out.

Most mops last for up to two years, if handled properly. Also, most good brands have replacement mop heads available in the market.

Handheld Vacuum Cleaner

Ideal for getting the dust off the rugs, fabric furniture, pet and children’s toys, all kinds of furnishings and upholstery, a compact handheld vacuum cleaner can be a life-saver.

It’s lighter and easier to use and can reach places a normal vacuum cleaner can’t. Whether it’s getting your pet’s hair off the couch or removing the food crumbs your child left behind while eating on the recliner, a handheld vacuum does a great job of cleaning quickly and efficiently.

However, it’s best to use them for smaller spaces rather than for the entire house at one go.

Scrub Brush

A long-handle scrub brush is a great tool for scrubbing bathroom floors and shower areas, getting stains off tiles, and cleaning terraces and balconies with ease. You don’t have to bend and hurt your back while cleaning those dirty areas. You can use it for both wet and dry spaces.

Long-Handle Duster

There are places in the house that your vacuum cleaner can’t reach, and as they result, they often get neglected. You need to either call in the cleaning services to do the needful or bring in the portable foldable ladder to reach those nooks and crannies.

However, a long-handle duster can help you remove the cobwebs and dust pockets from the ceilings. Its adjustable pole can reach the top of blinds and air-conditioners too.
