house cleaningIf you don’t take care of your home, life can quickly get messy. You will most likely find yourself cleaning more often because of your children, pets, family gatherings, etc. Regular house cleaning is essential to remove harmful bacteria and germs, especially in light of the recent pandemic.

We are the residential cleaning experts in all things cleaning. Here are some tips and tricks to help you and your family keep safe. These are the 10 household items that you should clean every day.

House Cleaning Tips

Sponges

A sponge is a great tool to clean, absorb and remove spillages from all surfaces. Sponge cleaning can be time-consuming and sponges may need some extra care. To ensure that your sponges remain clean and fresh, they are an important cleaning tool for your home. We recommend that you wash them every day with water and baking soda.

Dishes

Many people make the mistake of putting the dishes in the sink after they have finished cooking. However, it’s not something that you should do. Water and food particles are perfect ingredients for creating a bacteria smorgasbord. According to the National Sanitation Foundation, kitchen sinks are the most likely to contain the highest amount of bacteria in a home.

It is safest and easiest way to clean dishes often, quickly, safely and easily. We’ve already talked about how important and magical your dishwasher is in cleaning dishes you didn’t know you had.

Kitchen Counters

Myrtle Beach professional house cleaner says your kitchen countertops are one of the most important surfaces in your home that requires daily attention. They attract dirt easily. Kitchen counters are exposed to a lot of activity, which can lead to microorganisms that could pose a threat to your health. To get rid of food, dirt, and dust, use a disinfected sponge.

Dining Room Table

The dining room table is a common place for family dinners. It is possible for food debris to accumulate and cause mold growth. You will need to dust your kitchen table first, depending on what type it is.

These simple home cleaning steps will be helpful for specific types of dining table:

Wood – After every meal, use warm water and a microfiber towel to clean your table. To avoid damage and watermarks, wipe off excess moisture with a towel.

Glass – Warm water, a sponge and baking powder are all good options for cleaning glass tables. Glass cleaning solutions are a great way for your table to sparkle after it has been washed.

Metal – A sponge or cloth can be used to clean a metal table, but you should avoid the sponge’s abrasive side if there are caked-on foods. This will ensure that no damage is done.

Bathroom counters

Bathroom counters, like kitchen countertops, can harbour thousands of bacteria and germs that could pose a threat to your health. Bathroom counters left unattended can harbor fecal matter, which could pose a greater risk to your health. E. coli and streptococcus are the most common bacteria found on bathroom counters. A CBSNews 2007 report found that a bathroom countertop contains 452 bacteria per square inch.

Mix a cup hot water with a cup white vinegar to clean your bathroom countertops naturally. Mix the mixture in a spray can and spray it on your bathroom counters.

Computer Keyboard

Many Americans are working full-time from home during the pandemic. This means that their computer keyboards need to be given daily exercise. They also need to be cleaned daily. Imagine how many germs are on your keyboard right now. The University of Arizona discovered that the average keyboard contains 400 times as many bacteria as the average toilet seat. This is a very unpleasant picture, but you can get rid of it by using isopropyl alcohol and an electronic-safe cleaner to scrub your keyboard.

Surprisingly, house and car keys aren’t as germ-laden or dirty as toilet seats (like other items on this list). It could be that they are likely to be handled only by you and your spouse. One theory is that keys are made from certain metals that resist bacteria buildup. While keys don’t harbour as much bacteria than other household items they can harbor, they can still be a source of germs that could attack your immune system.

Warm water, some dish soap and an old toothbrush can be used to clean your house and car. You can also throw them in the dishwasher using the “sanitize” setting to disinfect thoroughly.

Remote controls

The remote control! It’s indispensable and you can’t live with it or lose it. We can try to make it a habit to clean this useful item every day. The American Society for Microbiology conducted a 2012 study on hotel room remote controls and found that they were the most germ infested items in hotel rooms.

You can quickly clean your remote with rubbing alcohol. To disinfect the remote, use a little rubbing alcohol on a piece of paper towel.

Phone Screen

Consider how much time you spend on your phone’s screen every day. Americans touch their phones an average of 47 times per day. This gives bacteria plenty of time to establish a base. One 2017 study found that high school students had 17,000 copies of bacterial genes on their phones.

Mobile devices can be disinfected with an alcohol wipe, just like your remote control. This will kill bacteria and prevent them from spreading.

Toothbrush

Most people keep their toothbrushes in the bathroom. We’ve seen how bacteria-ridden bathrooms can be. It shouldn’t surprise that toothbrushes should be cleaned every day. Researchers at the University of Manchester, England discovered that toothbrushes could be breeding grounds for E. coli and staphylococci bacteria. According to the NFS, toothbrushes can contain as much as 200,000 bacteria per square inch. This means that your toothbrush could not only make your teeth whiter but also contaminate your body with potentially life-threatening bacteria.

You can easily clean your toothbrush by placing 3% hydrogen peroxide in a small container and letting it sit for 15 minutes. The bristles could be damaged if the toothbrush is left to sit for longer. Before using your toothbrush, rinse it with warm water.
