1. The surfaces under the carpet

Probably you use the vacuum cleaner at least once a week but think about how often you clean the surfaces under the carpet. Even if it is large and heavy, beneath it collects dirt, which can fail in the air when you are walking upon it. Beat regularly the carpet and clean under it with a damp cloth to remove the dirt. If you wash it, make sure that it is dry before you put it in the room so you can avoid the risk of formation of the mold in the fabrics.

 

2. The door mat

The mat at the front door is placed there to keep the dirt outside, so as not to insert it inside. However, if the surface is not cleaned regularly, its function turns and instead retains dirt, the mat starts to spread it. Thus you are risking bringing the dirt inside the rooms, even if you turn off the shoes at the hall. That is why you should not forget to clean the mat regularly and even wash it from time to time.

 

3. The surface of the shower

Even if you regularly clean the bathroom tiles and the surface of the bath, you probably forget the shower head. You can be sure that there is accumulates limestone layer on it, that prevents water out evenly. The best way to clean it is to remove it and put it to soak in undiluted vinegar. The vinegar dissolves the limestone that clogs the open surface. Scrub with a toothbrush and rinse with water. Also remember to clean the shower curtains against the accumulation of mold.

 

4. The holder for the toothbrushes

The cup or vessel in which you keep your toothbrush, are often overlooked when cleaning the bathroom. However, they may prove to be one of the most polluted areas at home. The mold loves moist and dark places, such as the bottom of the stand and as of toothbrushes dripping water, which are filled with bacteria; it becomes a breeding ground for harmful microorganisms. They can be transferred to your hands and make you sick. Wash regularly the cup in which you store your toothbrush, disinfect it often and keep it away from the toilet, because during the release of water, on the brushes can fall splashes with bacteria.

 

5. The upper part of the refrigerator

In view of the fact that the upper part of the fridge is not on the level of human-high, it often stays neglected during the cleaning of the room. The heaped dirt and dust over this surface can contaminate the air in the kitchen. Use a short chair to reach this high part of the fridge and clean it with damp cloth.

 

6. The indoor plants

On the leaves of the indoor plants, especially if they are larger, could be accumulate a solid dirt which will spread around the room. You can spray it with water and then clean it with a soft cloth to remove the dirt. Another often neglected area at home, which collects dust, is the curtains, especially if they are thick and long. Pass them with a vacuum cleaner and wash them regularly.

 

7. The surfaces beneath the kitchen appliances

Probably it happens very rarely to pull the kitchen equipment to clean the surfaces underneath, which may accumulate a lot of dirt. As in the kitchen is preparing food, it is better to pay attention to those areas that can develop a significant amount of bacteria. No need to clean them weekly, but they must be treated at least once every few months.

 

8. The light switches

We use them every day and the more people live in the house, the greater is the risk to spread microbes around the house. This is especially true if someone at home is sick. Wipe these surfaces regularly with a disinfectant to kill the harmful bacteria. The same applies to the door handles.

 

9. The litter-bin

Since we commonly use garbage bags, many people think that there is no need to clean the surface of trash. Often, however, the bag can leak the dirt and the moisture contributes to the development of bacteria in the trash. Wash the inside with disinfectant and regularly clean the fallen debris.
