Don't Forget to Clean These Neglected Areas of Your Home

Cleaning your home is just something you have to do. If you don't do it regularly, you end up with a messy and unhygienic home. Most people clean their whole house once a week, every two weeks, or possibly twice a week or more. However, no matter how often you clean your home, there could be areas you're leaving out. It's easy to neglect some places, especially when it's something that doesn't need to be cleaned often. If you let it go too long, it could be more difficult to get clean. Remember to pay attention to these often neglected areas of the home when you're cleaning.


Ceiling Fans and Air Vents

Anything that circulates air in your home needs to be clean. Otherwise, you're also circulating dust and dirt. It's easy to neglect something like a ceiling fan or an air vent. After all, you don't usually look at them closely, so any dirt is easy to miss. They can gather a lot of dust, and you don't want to look at what has accumulated after a few years. You might need to get out a ladder, but it's worth it to get everything clean. You might not even need one if you have a long and flexible duster, or perhaps a vacuum cleaner that can reach into awkward places.

Windows and Doors

You're always opening and closing windows and doors, and they get exposure to the outdoors as well as indoors. You might notice that they look a bit grubby, but it's easy to ignore when you're busy doing something else. It can help if you schedule when you're going to clean both windows and doors, which you don't need to do too often. When it comes to windows, choosing something like Shine Window Cleaning services makes it a lot easier. Reaching your upper windows can be difficult too, so if you want to do it safely, a professional service is often the best answer.


Behind the Fridge (and Other Objects)

The space behind the fridge might be a bit of cliche place to gather dust, but it is rare that people manage to clean there. It's understandable, since it does mean moving the fridge out of the way. The same can be said for any other furniture or large appliances, which can get dirty underneath or behind them, where it can be hard to clean. While you don't want to move your furniture around every week, it's a good idea to make a point to clean these areas at least once a month.


Inside Appliances

It can be surprisingly easy to neglect the inside of appliances such as your oven or dishwasher. You only have to look at them when you open the door, so if you don't use them much, they're even easier to ignore. Some appliances, it can be a good to develop habit to wipe them out after use. Others might just need a thorough clean every now and then.

Many areas of your home are out of sight and out of mind. Make a point to remember them if you want to keep them clean.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
