07 Chemical Safety Savvy Cleaner Training Angela Brown

The thing I love about this course is it has all the things I was never taught about cleaning chemicals. When I got started in house cleaning I bought one of every kind of cleaning detergent on the store shelves because I wanted to be “prepared” when I went to a customers house.

I didn’t really know which solution to use on what or how much of it to use. And I thought that by choosing bottles that had green packaging that meant they were earthy friendly and therefore safe for my health.

I was fooled by labels that said “all-purpose cleaner” into thinking I could use them on all surfaces. And when they produced less than satisfactory results, and I didn’t know why, I shoved them under the bathroom sink where they sat for years.

Without tracking my supplies I had no idea the ready to use products I was buying were often ten times more money than the concentrates of the same brand.

Do you have any idea how much money I wasted on cleaning supplies?

I didn’t have a program for inventory control or restocking. I would just stop by the store on my way home from a job and buy few more bottles of everything for the next few days.

I may as well have been flushing money down the toilet.

And when I was on a job and running out of a detergent, I just filled the bottle back up with water to stretch it a bit farther without realizing I was changing the pH balance and effectiveness of the chemical I using.

I wasn’t even smart enough to realize that by diluting my solutions I was having to add extra elbow grease to make up for what the watered down chemicals could no longer provide. 

I was working really hard but not smart. The sad thing is I’m not alone. Over the years I’ve talked to literally thousands of house cleaners who say the same things.

We did the best we could with what we knew. The good news is that information on chemical safety, inventory, stocking, storage, proper labeling, pictograms and how to read safety data sheets is here. Right here, right now.  Stop guessing – start knowing.

We’re here to help.

Understanding Pictograms

Pictograms, Savvy Cleaner Training Course

Pictograms matter because you’ll see them on your safety data sheets and they will help you decide what types of chemicals to use while cleaning.

Each pictogram consists of a symbol on a white background framed within a red border and represents a distinct hazard(s). The pictogram on the label is determined by the chemical hazard classification.

In this course, we’ll cover them all.
