The prominent places often overlooked include food stains on kitchen counters, soap scum in the shower, or a pile of dirty socks. But what about the spots that you may overlook as easily? These are the ones that can affect your family’s health. Let’s take a look at your home room by room and shed some light on hidden dirt, how to recognize it, and how to get rid of it.
Are other rooms in your home affected by dust and allergens? The answer is most likely yes. The living room is not immune! Start by washing your blinds and curtains regularly, and shake out your rugs, especially if they are kept in the living room. Then, vacuum, vacuum, vacuum! You can also go over your couch, chairs, and other furniture with a clean cloth and Pledge® to get rid of dust.
To help prevent the spread of germs, it’s essential to keep these rooms primarily clean. A few common home killers in the guest bedroom include the bed, toilet, and shower. The first step is to shake out your bedspread, slat, and other bedding and vacuum your bed. To keep your shower free of mildew, wipe down the walls and showerhead well. Wash towels at least once a week and thoroughly dry them before storing them.
First, wipe off the sink, tub, and counter with a cleaner and a cloth. Then, clean the floor with a mop and bucket, and dry it well. Use a toilet cleaning product and a brush to clean around the bowl and under the seat for the toilet. You can’t clean the bathroom well enough, so be sure to wipe it down with disinfecting wipes a few times a week.
The kitchen is the heart of your home. The good news is you have access to many cleaning products to help you rid your kitchen of germs and bacteria. You can also disinfect your kitchen by washing countertops with a cleaner.
Give your countertops a good rinse and dry them with a cloth when you’re done. Next, wipe down your floors to eliminate sticky and crumbly messes. Don’t forget to clean under the fridge and stove. Finally, make sure to wipe off the handles of your oven and cabinets. This will help keep your family safe and healthy.
Microbes are everywhere in your home. If you want your home to be the cleanest it can be, follow these simple steps, and you’ll be on your way to a germ-free home in no time.
