Dusting and Damp Wiping Tutorial
Dusting is removing the dust or dirt from the surface by wiping or bushing it. Damp dusting means the cloth used to dust is damp, but not wet. The minimal water works as an adhesive for the dirt to adhere to the cloth.
Mopping is using a bundle of yarn or absorbent sponge on the end of a stick to wash a floor or surface. The mop is used in partnership with a disinfectant to give a thorough clean of the area.
Basins and Taps

Airborne bacteria can settle into the finest of fibres, this includes carpets, rugs and throws. Vacuuming works to remove any settled dust, dirt and bacteria from these surfaces.
From time to time, stains happen. When it comes to a deep clean it is always good to take up any stains that have appeared on surfaces. Stains can harbor bacteria that can spore and become harmful.
Stairways and handles can be a breeding place for bacteria. Multiple people coming into contact with one surface throughout the day can result in a multitude of different bacterias.
