Although it isn’t spring it doesn’t mean you can’t clean.
Don’t put off cleaning your home until the “spring-cleaning” season, get onto it now because things in your home need to be cleaned more than once a year. Want to know how often you should be cleaning areas of your house? This one is for you…
Your Microwave: At least once a week
Think about it, you re-heat food in a microwave where food splatters onto the sides and where hot-moist air is trapped. Wipe down your microwave with some kind of antibacterial wipes or spray once a week to keep the germs away.
Your Computer: At least once a week
Ever eaten lunch at your computer? Do you use your computer all day long? Your hands are touching not only your keyboard and mouse but everything else in the world throughout the day. Studies have found that a keyboard can harbour more bacteria than anywhere in your house; so, give it a clean!
Antibacterial wipes on the keyboard and the mouse (and in between the keys) are the places you need to pay attention to.
Your Pillows: Every 3 months
We aren’t talking about the pillowcases here, we mean the actual pillow. The pillowcase is a fantastic invention that shields you from dust mites and other nasties, but the pillow itself still needs a clean every once in a while. It’s so easy too! Just chuck them in the washing machine (in the morning so they have all day to dry) and they’ll be clean clean clean!
Your Kitchen Bench: Every day
This one should just be second nature. You cook, you eat you touch the kitchen bench, it needs a constant wipe-down.
Your Bed Sheets: Every 1 to 2 weeks
You’re in your bed every night; perhaps after a shower with wet hair, in the summertime as you sweat, or after a big night out. You should wash and soak your sheets every 1 to 2 weeks to kill any germs, mites or otherwise. It will be good for your health, your home and your skin.
So, even though it is autumn and you still technically have a season and a bit till spring-cleaning season, clean your house all year round. Trust us, you’ll feel better.
Of course, we’re here to help should you need one of our expert Brisbane or Gold Coast cleaners!
