The weather is warming up and that means many will be starting to do some spring cleaning. It’s important to understand what not to mix together. Always read the warning labels on the cleaning supplies and follow the manufactures instructions on proper use of the cleaning agent. Always vent the room that you will be using strong cleaning agents in. If you become lightheaded, move out of the room to fresh air. Certain chemicals mixed together can create toxic gasses that can cause shortness of breath or worse. Never mix bleach and ammonia!
