If you take pride in your home, you probably think that you know the key offending areas when it comes to dirt. In many cases though, you might be surprised!
Let’s take a look at the dirtiest areas in any home.
It’s no surprise that the kitchen is one of the dirtiest areas. One of the key problems here is that items such as clothes and sponges are used again and again without being cleaned.
Door knobs and handles
Regardless of where exactly in the home they are, knobs and handles are breeding grounds for germs and other nastiness.
Make-up brushes and applicators are notoriously dirty, and can harbor all kinds of dirt and grime. Make sure that you regularly change your brushes to avoid any health problems such as sore and infected eyes.
If you regularly eat lunch at your desk, your keyboard could be one of the dirtiest areas in the whole home. It’s often neglected as homeowners simply don’t realize how bad it can get. You can find office cleaning in Wimbledon to Wembley if you feel that you can’t keep on top of things yourself!
Most people know that the toilet needs to be cleaned regularly, but it’s easy to forget about the handle! It’s touched dozens of time each day with dirty hands, so requires some special attention.
The grouting in between tiles can get really grubby if it isn't regularly cleaned. This applies to bathrooms, kitchens, and flooring.
Bacteria loves warm and moist areas, making your toothbrush the prime candidate for the spread of germs.
Having lots of food in one place means that your fridge is a high-risk area. Try to make sure that the correct temperature is maintained at all times, and give it a regular wipe to get rid of germs.
Yet another one that people often forget about! Every member of the family touches remote controls, yet it’s rare that they get so much as a quick wipe.
The laundry basket
Even if you think you’re being super organised, keeping all your dirty laundry in one place means that it’s a concentrated area of dirt! Get into the habit of getting the washing done as soon as possible.
Don’t forget that it’s usually human beings that spread dirt around! Always remember to wash your hands at regular intervals, especially while you’re doing the housework.
By taking action in these specific areas, you can be better placed for a cleaner home.
