Is Your Home As Healthy As You Think It Is?


We all love our homes and try to make them as perfect, presentable, and as welcoming as possible, but sometimes, you will find that something is letting you down. Even when your home looks incredible - and smells it too, it may not be 100% healthy, like you think it is. Whether you have a strict cleaning schedule, or you like to clean every now and again, your home may be suffering in a few different ways. If you’re not too sure where these issues could lie, or you want to work on making sure they’re no longer issues in your home, here are the key areas to take care of.

Your Carpets

First up, to start us off, you’re going to want to look down. Because one of the key areas that can be a problem in your home is your flooring. Whether you have wooden or laminate flooring or carpets, you could be keeping a wealth of dirt, and even germs are hidden there. Even when you vacuum or sweep on a regular basis! So, you’re going to want to think about using a carpet cleaning service, like www.carpetcleaningnyc.com, that can make sure your floors are spotless. You may be able to tackle some of the problems yourself, but you can often find that experts can nail the issues quicker and more effectively.

Your Kitchen

Then there’s your kitchen. Even if you be sure to clean up every time you cook a meal and a few times a week, you could still be left with germs. Kitchens are common breeding grounds for germs, so you’re going to want to make sure that you’re using cleaning products that can kill them quickly. Sometimes, even wiping down tables can spread the germs, rather than kill them - so make sure you’re careful as you clean up.

Your Bedding

As much as you might pride yourself on a gorgeous bedroom, you may not be keeping it as clean as it needs to be. When this is the case, it can often be an unhealthy zone. So, you’re going to need to start making a change. Not only do you need to make sure that your bedding is changed on a regular basis, but you may also need to wash your comforter, your pillows and any protective covers that you have over both.

Your Bathroom

Alongside the kitchen, we all know that the bathroom needs a bit of extra TLC to be healthy. Although you may scrub your toilet on a regular basis to make sure that it's clean and healthy, you also should focus on your drains. They can block easy with things like hair or other foreign objects that you shouldn’t be putting down them, causing them to clog and smell, so be sure to use drain unblocker and bleach to keep the problems at bay.

Your Walls

And finally, you have all of the walls in your home to think about. It’s important to ensure that you keep windows open to allow for some air to circulate. If not, you may be met with issues when it comes to mold and mildew like this http://www.hgtv.com/remodel/interior-remodel/mold-vs-mildew. Both can often grow around windows that suffer from condensation, or in your bathroom, but other walls can become damp and soon grow fungus too when the humidity levels aren’t quite right. Consider a dehumidifier even.


What other areas do you notice get missed in a regular cleaning?
