Common Cleaning Products That Can Be Dangerous

Posted on January 27, 2023

As you probably know, many different cleaning products can be dangerous to your health. If you ever try to undergo cleaning by yourself, you need to be well aware of the potential dangers you face and how to deal with them.

The truth is, basically all cleaning products short of regular water are at least a little dangerous (although, even water can be dangerous in the right circumstances). Any time you use a product that you’re unfamiliar with, you need to look into the proper safety precautions. Here are some of the most dangerous cleaning products and how to deal with them safely.

Air Fresheners

Air fresheners release a lot of chemicals into the air that aren’t great for your lungs. They also harm the environment with their emissions. They may even cause health issues in humans and animals.

In general, it’s recommended that you don’t use air fresheners at all. Find ways to dispose of whatever’s causing the smell of concern and use odor-absorbing substances like baking soda. Call a professional Claremont cleaner if you can’t get the smell out, and dispose of whatever’s causing the smell if a professional cleaning doesn’t work.

Carpet And Upholstery Cleaners

Plenty of carpet and upholstery cleaners can be dangerous. Carpet and upholstery cleaners come in a wide variety, so the specifics vary from product to product and you must check safety labels. Regardless, frequent exposure is generally not a good idea.

Don’t clean your Claremont home’s upholstery or carpets obsessively. Only clean in the instance that there’s something dirty in your carpet or upholstery, and get deep cleaning done once a year. Outside of that, you don’t need to clean constantly. It’s okay to be exposed to these chemicals occasionally, just don’t overdo it.


Ammonia is a strong irritant and generally unpleasant to expose yourself to. Worse, when combined with a chlorine product like bleach, it can be deadly.

Only use ammonia sparingly. Find another cleaning product if you can that’s less dangerous. And if there’s any chlorine near what you’re cleaning, do not use ammonia.


Bleach can be extremely dangerous, and there’s almost always a better cleaning solution to use. It can be deadly when combined with ammonia, and it has many other dangerous combinations. Bleach and vinegar can create deadly chlorine gas, and bleach and rubbing alcohol creates chloroform. Both of these are very toxic.

If you must use bleach, always dilute it with water. But if you can, use other disinfectants that are less dangerous. Bleach can also stain very easily, making it an unideal cleaning product.
