Cleaning your house is a difficult task. It’s often hard work and you may have to spend time and effort just to clean it. But cleaning your house can be done effectively if you know the right things to do. Here are 6 things to keep in mind when cleaning your house:
Start With Yourself
Cleaning your own hands and the surfaces on your body can help prevent cross-contamination and spread of germs. It’s highly recommended that you wash your hands with soap and water before handling food, after taking a dump, changing diapers and touching anyone else’s body. Also, clean your clothes before wearing them again and if you’re wearing dirty clothes, change immediately.
Don’t Forget The Toilet, Shower, Bath and Kitchen
You should also clean the rest of your house as you’re cleaning your own. For instance, if you’re wiping down your kitchen table, wipe down the toilet, sink and stove as well. In the same way, you should clean the toilet, sink, counters and cupboards in your bathroom as you clean your own.
Cleaning your house is not only about surfaces, it’s about cleaning walls, floors, under the beds, under the bed frames, closets and shelves. Clean the cracks in your walls, under your bed and other places where dirt is likely to accumulate. Dust your house regularly and wipe off all dust with a cloth.
Vacuum And Sweep Your Floor Regularly
Keep your house vacuumed regularly and sweep your floor regularly. Vacuum your carpets and rugs regularly and clean your hardwood or linoleum floors with a mop or a squeegee. If you have any wooden furniture, clean it regularly with a product that is meant for wooden furniture. If you have rugs, clean them with a damp cloth to avoid staining them with soaps, stains or other residues that can damage the rug. You should vacuum your rug regularly too.
Dust your house regularly with a damp cloth to remove all the dust and dirt. You should also sweep your house regularly to collect all the dust. Regular dusting and sweeping will remove dirt and dust from surfaces and will prevent them from collecting dirt and staining. Dusting also breaks down the surface tension on surfaces and lets water easily flow through them.
Wash Your Dishes Regularly And Put Them In The Dishwasher
Many people don’t wash their dishes regularly, or they wash them with an abrasive soap, which can damage the surface of your dishes. You should wash your dishes regularly with soapy water and put them in the dishwasher when it is full. If you don’t have a dishwasher, you can also pour some soapy water on a cloth, wipe down your dishes and put them in a container filled with soapy water. Make sure to clean your counters and stove with the soapy water and rinse them with clean water.
Clean Your Bath And Shower Tiles Regularly With a Special Cleaner
Bath and shower tiles are made of porous material that absorbs and holds dirt, making them difficult to clean. That’s why you need to clean them regularly with a special cleaner or a cloth dampened with just water to avoid staining the tiles with soap residue. Regular cleaning of your tiles will prevent them from collecting dirt and stains.
