There is no need to argue that cleaning is one of the most tedious of all household chores. Very few people actually like it, and even fewer have the time to actually spare in order to achieve optimal results when sanitising their properties.
What you need to clean your home right
A proper cleaning procedure requires:
- Specialised equipment
- Proper detergents and other cleaning products
- Enough time and energy
- Everyday commitment
If you lack even one of those components you are doomed to fail maintaining a high standard of hygiene at your place. This is the reason why more and more people prefer hiring pro-cleaners for regular and one-off domestic sanitation. If you cannot afford that or you simply want to give the old way a try, you should know that there are places in your home that if attended properly and regularly, will provide you with better results with minimal hassle and waste of energy.
Special attention spots that will help you have a cleaner home
Those areas that you need to attend to at once are:
- The carpets – they are beautiful, and create atmosphere and comfort in one’s home that cannot be matched by any other flooring solution. On the other hand, carpets and rugs are notorious for being a nightmare to keep in good condition. They need everyday vacuuming and to be very careful with stains. As soon as a spill occurs, you should take the necessary measures to remove it, otherwise it becomes almost impossible to succeed.
- The kitchen, according to studies, is the one place where the family spends most of their time at home at. Naturally, you would want to maintain a high level of hygiene The fridge and countertops should be cleaned at least once a week thoroughly. Wash the dishes after every meal and be very careful about spills as well as moisture which can bring in mildew in your kitchen. The garbage bin and the floors are other areas within the kitchen that you need to be careful about.
- The bathroom. Even though it is a myth that the toilet seat is the dirtiest area in every home, one needs not take chances. Weekly cleaning of the bathroom is a must, and we are not talking simply about the bowl and the seat, but also the shower area, the curtain and other such places that may be inflicted by moisture, scum and so forth.
- The mattress is something few people think about when cleaning, but on the other hand, it is the spot you sleep on – you cannot afford to keep it dirty. So next time you are cleaning the bedroom, flip the mattress or take it outside to stay in the sun for a day. Vacuuming and removing all sorts of stains that may occur on the surface of the mattress promptly is another very good idea. As we have said – there is no need to play with fire.
Most importantly, you should not forget the key to successful home cleaning and maintenance – persistence and diligence.
