The cleanliness of your home should be a top priority, especially if you have children and pets living with you too. There should be no compromises when it comes to the health and happiness of your family and your family’s environment.
Regular sweeping, mopping and dusting help in maintaining a germ-free environment and looking after the hygiene of your pets as well as their surroundings is vital. Maintaining the polish on hardwood floors as well as steaming and disinfecting the carpets are usually a high priority on the cleaning list. Everything that is easily seen and involves high volume traffic and activity in the home is given top priority when it comes to cleanliness.
Most homeowners also take extra time and special care when it comes to cleaning their bathrooms and kitchens, as well as the floors and every other nook and cranny found in their home. However, despite the thoroughness of cleaning, there are probably some household items that may have been missed.
It’s not because you are sloppy or you’ve disregarded these little but important things, it’s just that these are the things that most of us do not necessarily think of that need cleaning.
The list below gives details of a few of the important household items that should be cleaned regularly but are often missed:
- Bins – Of course, you regularly empty the bins from inside your home and the huge bins that sit outside the home that are collected by bin collectors. Unfortunately, most homeowners disregard the cleanliness of these bins/containers. This is because you place plastic bin bags in them to gather the rubbish, but it is inevitable that stains, spills and overflows happen and go directly into the bins. Regularly hosing down and washing these containers will ensure safety and better cleanliness for you and your family.
- Sink stoppers and drains – Cleaning the bathroom regularly usually involves disinfecting the toilet bowls and scrubbing mould and mildew off of the walls and tiles. But, you also need to get into and around the sink stoppers and drains to check for build-up as well. While you are there, check out the shower curtains too! These might be little things but they can have a huge build up of bacteria and mould between them.
- Toothbrush holders – You use your toothbrushes regularly to clean your teeth and are constantly reminding your kids to do so before bedtime and before leaving the house. But, you must also clean the toothbrushes after using them and the containers that your toothbrushes are stored in. These cups or holders can accumulate water and breed germs and mould, which you definitely don’t want to get transferred into your mouth and onto your teeth!
- Hair-brushes, remote controllers, and other bits and pieces – Most of us don’t give much attention to the cleanliness of daily items we use such as; hair brushes, remote controllers, steering wheels and door knobs. But all of us should. These are day-to-day things that come in contact with your hands and your kids’ hands. Hair-brushes accumulate not just hair but also dandruff and dust. Remote controllers, door locks and knobs and even your car’s steering wheel can collect dust, fingerprints and grime that can be passed on from one person to another and could even start a cough and a cold! It’s essential that you wipe and disinfect these little things regularly too!
It’s really important that you go through every little item inside your house to check and clean every once in a while. It’s understandable that you can’t get to all of these as regularly as you would like. But paying attention to these bits and pieces can help the overall cleanliness of your home and environment.
