What some of the dirtiest places in your house?

Oftentimes, we don’t think about how messy certain areas and objects in our homes can get.  We tend to go through our normal cleaning routine, but many of us miss the same problematic areas and end up with battery-infested, disgusting areas.  This can become a health hazard if it isn’t well-considered. 

We’re going to list the top five dirtiest areas of your house so you can be mindful the next time you or a professional cleaning crew are cleaning your home.

#1: The Kitchen

This is pretty gross.  We eat the food that comes from our kitchen, and when we do this, we eat food that’s coming from the dirtiest place in the house.  In most cases, kitchens are much dirtier than bathrooms, believe it or not.

Things like dish towels and sponges are an especially bad haven for bacteria, as they become moist and grow molds and bacteria easily.

In addition, we rarely think about things like faucets, cabinet and drawer handles, refrigerator and microwave doors, and other commonly touched parts of the room. 

Think about this next time you’re preparing a meal, and consider getting a good cleaning job done!

#2: Switches, door handles, door knobs

It seems obvious when you think about it, but when’s the last time you went through the house wiping down these commonly touched areas?  Particularly bad are knobs in bathrooms and from the indoors to the outdoors.

A disinfecting wipe down once a week should do the trick to take care of this problem.

#3 Make-up bag and brushes

Did you know makeup grows bacteria after some time?  We often reuse the same makeup brushes over and over again and never give them a good wipe down.  This is pretty gross, seeing as we’re rubbing these brushes over our face every day. 

Buy a nice make-up brush cleaner and take care of this problem in a breeze!  It doesn’t take long, and it’s much better for your health, and your skin!

What Do Professional Cleaners Do That You Can’t?

          You may have mulled over the thought of hiring a professional cleaner or team of cleaners to deal with your home or residence when you can’t.  It can be a hard decision to make, especially because it’s tempting to think that professional cleaners really don’t know any more than you do about how to make your space look at its best.

          For casual cleaning needs, perhaps you can do enough.  However, for those with a busy lifestyle or a business to keep up with, having professionals on the job is a huge advantage.  A business should always be presented at its best and “dressed to impress” customers.  It can be hard to maintain this when you’re busy managing all the other aspects of the company.

          For those with a busy lifestyle, it may be impossible to keep up with your cleaning chores.  They tend to be a constant source of strain and stress, and may even hinder you in accomplishing your goals.  A professional team is simply a weight off your shoulders and one less thing you have to worry about in your hectic life.

          There are a number of other advantages to having a cleaning crew.  For one, professional cleaners know the product to use in tough to clean spots.  Certain surfaces could be damaged by certain chemicals, stains may not budge when using one product but may come out in a breeze with another product, and you may not know certain hazards associated with certain chemicals.

          Professional cleaners are educated in all of these areas and are able to make more informed decisions about techniques, products and more.  This coupled with the fact that they provide a no-stress way to enjoy a sparkly space gives a pretty good argument for hiring a professional for your next cleaning job.
