Whether you love housecleaning or absolutely despise it, it is necessary. If you do not clean, apart from looking dreadful, your house will turn into breeding grounds for all sorts of germs and other agents that are harmful to you. Merely removing the dust and grimes for namesake is not enough either. You need to do a thorough job and scrub down on all the dirt to leave your home spic and sparkling. All the dirt gets accumulated over time and it will be even harder to remove it later, so regular cleaning is a must. Rather than doing all the grunt work by yourself, you can hire professional housecleaning services to do it for you.
While most of the dust comes from outside, brought in by your shoes, two major sources of dirt inside are pets and cigarettes. Doormats and using different sets of footwear while at home goes a big way towards keeping your house clean. Even if you use an ashtray, there is always ash that you cannot collect and somehow makes its way across the home. If you have pets, namely cats or dogs, they shed a lot of dead skin, called dander, which adds to the dust over time. People who claim to be allergic to cats are not allergic to the cat itself but the dander it sheds.
You might think toilet is the place filled with germs. You’re wrong! According to a research, the kitchen is the dirtiest place of all. This is because most people believe in using industry grade disinfectants in toilets; whereas, just a wipe with a wet cloth suffices in kitchen. The bacteria from the food preparation and disposal linger even after the entire cleaning process. If you call in professional housecleaning services, you will notice they use commercial strength anti-bacterial cleaners in kitchen.
Another place filled with allergens is the sofa and other cushions you have kept throughout the house. Dust mites and other allergens breed on such places and without proper treatment, their infestation will increase. If you are allergic, you might get severely ill upon close contact. The cushions and the cushion covers need to be cleaned with steam and need to receive adequate sunlight to keep them clean. Most housecleaning services add such services along with cleaning the entire house.
To keep your home ultra clean, clean up your home every day or hire professional housecleaning services once a week. Develop this into a habit. Even though you may feel this is a waste, the benefits you reap over time is well worth the effort.
