We all have parts of our homes that we clean and clean and it seems that it is not clean enough. The following are some of the grossest parts of a home and how to clean them:
FLOORS – they are the most bacteria riddled parts of every home. Unless you and everyone that enters your home go shoeless this surface has to be cleaned the most. It would be wise not to follow the 5 second rule – just throw out the food item that fell.
Carpeting is the hardest to clean – germs go deep into the roots of the carpet. Have your carpets cleaned professionally once a year. Hard flooring like ceramic tiles, marble and wood should be cleaned with material appropriate disinfectant cleaners.
COUNTERTOPS – It seems we do almost everything on our countertops and they have lots of bacteria 24/7. The best way to keep bacteria at bay is to use disinfectants that kill the germs. If your countertops are old and you are considering replacing them – think about quartz or stainless steel – these surfaces are bacteria resistant.
SHOWERS AND TUBS – The accumulating moisture in both the spaces are a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. Clean regularly with a disinfectant cleaner. If mold has spread you should consider a mold remediation service to come and remove mold professionally.
KITCHEN SINKS – Moisture and bits of food are a great mix for bacteria, E. coli and salmonella. You should clean the sink with soap and water and make sure you dry it at the end of each day. You can also pour hot water and bleach down the drain once a month, as well as cleaning the disposal with bleaches.
WASHING MACHINE – Your clothes leave germs in the washing machine every time you wash them. At least once a month run an empty wash with hot water and either bleach or vinegar to get the germs out and dry the inside of the washer.
REFRIGERATOR – Clean the shelves twice a month with a disinfectant and throw out anything past its expiration date.
OTHER GROSS THINGS THAT SHOULD BE REPLACED OR DISINFECTED OFTEN – We all have lots of “things” in our homes that we overlook when cleaning. Remember to clean door knobs and handles, cutting boards, area around stove, light switches, stove knobs and microwaves. Replace your sponges and dish rags often.
