The most common illness is back problems, caused by a bad position and a heavy weight in the incorrect position. Therefore it is necessary to pay attention to keep your back as upright as you can. Particularly in cleaning floors we often try to keep our backs bent. Thus, for example, when wringing out the mop, the maid cleaner needs to fold her legs to put the mop in the bucket and not to bend her back. It is very important that the floor system’s handle can be adapted to the housekeeper‘s body size and that the length of the handle comes under the neck. This ensures an excellent posture when we are passing the pan with a very good straight back.
The same is true when vacuuming. It is also about keeping the back as straight as humanly possible. When vacuuming under the bed or couch, the housekeeper should not bend her back but bend her legs or even sit on the floor.
