Halloween is just a few weeks away! You may be frightened to know that many places in your home are actually crawling with dirt and dust. The good news is that with help from M.S. Chem-Dry in Omaha‘s carpet cleaning in Omaha, NE, you can keep your home sparkling clean this October!
1. Trash Cans
Your trash can is inevitably one of the dirtiest items in your home (well, it does hold all of your trash). Regularly wipe down the inside and outside of your trash can to keep it free from dirt and food particles. Be sure to use high-quality trash can liners or bags that effectively contain liquids and other materials that may spill.
While vacuuming your carpets once or twice a week helps keep the plushness and freshness of your carpet, your carpet needs to be deep-cleaned to extract all the dirt and dust embedded in the carpet’s fibers. Most carpet manufacturers’ warranty advise that you get your carpets professionally cleaned once every 12 to 18 months. However, if you have kids or pets, your carpets need about twice a year.
3. Door Knobs
You and your family touch doorknobs multiple times a day, so it’s no wonder why they get so dirty! Dirt can stay on these metal surfaces for hours, so it’s important to wipe down your doorknobs with a cleaner every few days.
The tile surfaces in your kitchen or bathroom may appear to stay clean with simple mopping or scrubbing every month. However, this method does not get rid of deep-down dirt and grime that is hidden in your grout and the pores of the tile. The best way to effectively deep-clean your tile is to have an expert clean it with their powerful equipment.
5. Cell Phones & Electronics
Did you know that your phone is likely the dirtiest item in your home? Make sure you regularly wipe down your phone and other devices (remotes, game controllers, keyboards, etc.) with a cleaning wipe.
