Do you know what are the dirtiest places in your home? Let’s take a look at the dirtiest places in a home and how to keep them sparkling clean.
According to an article at sparefoot.com, “Home Cleaning Tips”
“Here are the six dirtiest places in your home.
- Carpets and Rugs
Everyone is aware that carpets and rugs act like Velcro when it comes to dirt. Heavy foot traffic helps disperse dirt and pushes it deep into the fabric. Like any responsible home dweller, you usually vacuum the rug. But rarely do you go for the deep clean, therefore allowing masses of bacteria to grow in the unreachable depths of your carpet or rug.
Here’s a mind-blowing stat: It’s estimated that a clean square yard of carpet may contain 1 pound of dirt. And here’s another scary stat: 32,000 dust mites can live in 1 pound of rug dust.
Especially if you live with children or pets, the people over at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommend deep-cleaning your carpets and rugs at least once every six months.
- Switches, Knobs and Handles
Unless you live in one of those high-end, futuristic homes with “Star Trek”-like sliding doors, electric blinds, intelligent appliances, and smart LED light bulbs that can be switched on and off via your cellphone, your hands are busier than you think.
If you want to see this in action, visit your local mall on any given Saturday and ride the escalator. Then, observe the number of people who hold the moving handrail. The principle applies across the board; we’re constantly touching things even when we aren’t aware of it.
Because of our compulsion to touch, our hands inherently transport nefarious passengers. These delinquent hitchhikers then attach themselves to everything else we touch, waiting for the next unsuspecting passerby to pick them up and bring them to their next destination: light switches, cabinet knobs, drawer handles, computer keyboards, microwave-oven panels and so on. It’s a vicious epidemic.” To read the entire article click here.
