A dirty environment in your home can make you and your family sick. It can damage you professionally, socially, and individually, because you find it difficult to participate in any activity with your full potential, and your guests carry a negative image of you with them. Therefore, you must not allow your home to become a dirty and unkempt place.
Here are five tips to help you create a hygienic environment in your home:
Clean the Upholstery
Upholstered furniture in your home needs serious cleaning regularly, because they house almost half or more of the total amount of dust, pollen, and germs in your home. Instead of just wiping with a soft cloth, you should first vacuum the upholstery properly and then wipe it thoroughly.
Remove the Dirt
Dust pollutes the indoor environment, posing the risk of allergies and symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy watery eyes, cough, facial pressure and pain, difficulty in breathing, chest tightness or pain, and asthma. Therefore, you cannot afford to let dust build up in your home. To restrict dust from entering your home, you should keep a sturdy doormat at the entrance of your home. The doormat will restrict the dust coming in on your footwear. Keep your air ducts clean, because dust accumulated on them can contaminate indoor air. Ensure proper ventilation to let fresh air come in. Now, vacuum, wipe, and mop the floors and walls in your home.
Clean the Windows and Doors
Clean the windows and doors with a high-quality green window and door cleaner.
Clean the Bathroom Thoroughly
Bathrooms need serious cleaning, because a dirty bathroom can make you and your family sick. Clean every nook and cranny in your bathroom, including the door, windows, and their knobs, and the mirrors. Most people use chemical-based cleaning products for their bathroom; relying on them will create a toxic environment in your home. Therefore, you should only use green cleaning products.
Clean Your Kitchen Thoroughly
Your kitchen needs detailed cleaning. You should clean countertops, splashes, cabinets, hoods, walls, floors, and every corner in your kitchen. You should use green cleaning products for this too.
