Everyone knows the benefits that can be found from cleaning your home. By decluttering your living space you can help declutter your mind and make better use of the space. But did you know there are also benefits to sanitizing your living space? Not just tidying and organizing, but actually removing the germs that live inside your home. This, in itself, is a task, but one that could greatly encourage the overall health of your family.
For instance, sanitizing can keep your family healthier (goodbye cold germs, help keep COVID away, among other common germs). It can also improve your breathing air. This is especially true this time of year as pollen and other allergens make their way into your home. Sanitize the very air you breathe to create a better quality of life. You can use air purifiers, clean out your AC unit(s), and even wipe down your ductwork from the inside out. Air quality can play largely into how we fare every day, yet we overlook the airborne allergens that make their way into our homes.
You can also improve your home’s breathing air by vacuuming (and regularly changing or cleaning the filter), washing bedding, curtains, and more. Keep up to date with smart DIYs and call on My Amazing Maid to help with your sanitizing needs.
Additional Steps to Keep your Home Clean and Sanitized
There’s more to sanitizing your home than just improving the air quality, however. You should wipe down all surfaces with an effective germ killer. You can use a green cleaning product or something with more chemicals – whatever compound leaves you feeling most comfortable. Be sure to hit the hotspots like doorknobs, remotes, light switches, and sink handles.
Meanwhile, all surfaces can be sprayed and wiped down, like bathroom and kitchen counters. Fabric items, like furniture or carpets, can be washed or shampooed. While sinks, toilets, and showers should get a solid scrubbing. If you aren’t already in the habit, consider spraying these areas multiple times a week so germs don’t overtake the area. This step can also remove mold or mildew that might have otherwise formed.
Scheduled Sanitizing Services
There are a handful of times throughout the year when you will most want to sanitize your home.
· During cold and flu season (especially when a family member is sick).
· Changing weather – keep allergens out.
· Seasonally – as you’re stirring up dust and mites by cleaning, you’ll also want to eliminate them from your home.
· After company – guests can bring unwanted germs. Cleaning after their visit can reduce lingering germs from causing sickness.
Keep these key dates in mind for when it’s time to sanitize your home. You can also schedule with a professional cleaning service, like My Amazing Maid, to do the dirty work for you.
