Stop Neglecting These Places When Cleaning Your Home

How many hours do you spend cleaning your home every week? It’s because you don’t want to live in a pigsty, which would be absolutely terrible. Your home might be livable by your standards, but there is a lot more you’ll be able to do.

Don’t worry, it’s not really your fault. There are just some places the majority of homeowners neglect to clean. It’s like they forget they even exist. If you want to ensure your home is spotless we’ll look at a few examples to help you out.

Vacuuming Underneath Your Rugs


Cleaning a large area rug is something everyone will do when they’re vacuuming a room. After all, it’s so big it would be impossible to miss. Most people out there will only complete 50 percent of the job.

Why is it so difficult to clean the underside of your rugs too? It’s going to end up in a disgusting state if you keep ignoring it. Also, it would be wise to call in the professionals every so often.

Inside All Your Cabinet Doors


I’m sure you’ve heard everyone say, “people only care how individuals look on the outside, but it’s what they look like on the inside that counts”. I bet you didn’t think it was possible to compare cabinets to humans.

When cleaning your kitchen I know you want it to look sparkling when you’re done. Spend as much time on the exterior of your cabinet doors as you want. Just don’t forget to open them up to tackle the insides afterward.

Lighting Fixtures Are Beautiful


Beautiful lighting fixtures are a new phenomenon. They were obviously around in the past, but they weren’t mainstream. Everyone has now realized the right kind of fixtures can completely transform the look of a room.

They just don’t bother troubling themselves cleaning them correctly, which will eventually affect how much light gets through. Everyone touches light switches so they should be cleaned regularly too.

The Bathroom Will Become Toxic


One of the worst cleaning jobs is getting down on your hands and knees to clean the toilet. It’s definitely why everyone is terrible at it. Even if it looks clean to the naked eye you haven’t touched behind it.

That would require your face to get even closer to the bowl. You have to understand how important it is to clean the entire toilet. The last thing you want is toxic mold spores finding their way into your lungs.

Painted Walls Will Get Dirty


Can you honestly say you clean your walls? If you said yes, you’re probably slightly confused. It’s a lot more likely you only dust them, which isn’t the same thing. A duster isn’t capable of removing finger marks.

Those marks will slowly build up until your walls look filthy, but don’t worry because there are ways to wash painted walls. If you’re cleaning a tiled wall always remember to scrub the grout until it looks new.

Throw Pillows Attract Dust Mites


Nobody would sleep on the same pillow sheet for weeks on end. It doesn’t take them long to get dirty, so they need to be washed in hot water all the time. It’s an effective way to kill the bugs.

You should start treating your throw pillows the same way. I know you don’t sleep on them at night, but they’ll still attract dust mites. To guarantee you remember, start throwing both of them into the machine at the same time.

Does Anything Jump out at You?


We’ve touched on a few interesting places today, but does anything jump out at you? Hopefully, you don’t really clean any of them. It means once you do it will make a bigger difference. By the way, there are plenty more where these came from.
