PUT OFF OIL LAMP BEFORE CLEANING THE FLOOR

Question: When both the incense and oil lamp on the altar are lit up, can we clean the other rooms in the house, such as sweeping or mopping the floor? Or is it not appropriate to sweep or mop the floor even in other rooms?

Answer:  It is all right to leave the incense burning, but the oil lamp must be put off before cleaning.
