We all think we know how important it is to keep our homes clean and tidy. But there is more to cleanliness that flicking a duster around every now and then.
Some of the everyday items we use can be breeding grounds for germs and pathogens, some of which can make us ill.
We assume that the dirtiest place in the home is the toilet seat but, the real harbingers of germs may surprise you…
We overlook many things because we are so accustomed to them being in our home. It may be your favourite toothbrush, but is it time to change it?!
Cleaning with detail is about understanding some of the most common places that germs and pathogens hide and multiply. When germs and bacteria reach a certain level, they impact on human health.
It may be slight and unnoticeable but things like runny noses, coughs and ‘cold’ could be our immune system protecting us from germs in the home.
And if their levels keep building, they can really make us ill.
Take a look at the cleaning tasks you should be doing daily, weekly and regularly, as well as how some of the everyday items we use need replacing or a deep clean. From changing the dishcloth on a more frequent basis to washing items at 60° or more.
And the good news is, with a cleaning schedule and better understanding of how and where germs lurk, you can keep on top of the nasties that could be making your skin itch and your nose run.
