Things I've Learned by Cleaning a Building that's Open to the Public


You can learn a lot about human nature by cleaning up a location where humans have been. For instance:
  • Lots of people don't use the door handles, but push the door open by pushing on the glass.
  • People don't think about what happens to things after they put them in the trash can.
  • A surprising number of men and boys believe that urinals are self-flushing.
  • Women use paper towels and toilet paper at a faster rate than men.
  • The cleanest bathroom is the one used by the littlest kids.
  • Just like at home, some people clean up after themselves, and others leave a mess behind.
  • An amazing number of people leave items of value behind and never come back looking for them.
  • If you even breathe near a stainless steel surface, it will leave a mark. So imagine what it looks like when you actually touch it.
  • The state of a classroom after the class has left is a reflection of the teachers who use that classroom.

Life is so very busy with family and work, so the last thing you probably have time for is cleaning your carpets. If it is time for you to have those carpets turned from dark and dingy to bright and clean, you may want to consider hiring a carpet cleaning company. This is an excellent way to get a terrific job done for a reasonable price. Please visit :- Cleaning Services Abbotsford

When my daughter was 4 years old she pushed a door open with the glass and the entire sheet of glass fell and cut her. She needed stitches.

Interesting point. Its a human nature since people have different habits when using the toilet. Some are lazy and while others are more cleaner.
