Clean Every Week

If you are like many people, you don't like it when visitors just show up without informing you in advance. Besides adjusting your daily logistics, there is always the fear that they'll find some flaws in your home - some areas that could be cleaner. Though some things in your house need cleaning daily, their areas must be cleaned less frequently. 

But this does not mean they are any less important - their cleanliness does matter every time you open your house to guests. These items can be cleaned once every week. This does not necessarily mean they should be cleaned on the same day; you can schedule them for cleaning on different days during the week as you find fit.

So, what are these items that need once-a-week cleaning? Here is a list for your consideration:

Your Carpets

Though it is impossible to see dirt and dust particles on the surface of your carpet, lots of germs and bacteria get trapped in these house fittings. As such, ensure that you vacuum your carpets each week. When doing so, blot each stain and spill to keep it from becoming a stubborn spot that will be difficult to remove. Consider using homemade mixes such as apple cider or white vinegar, plain soap, baking soda, and water to make your carpet cleaning work easier.

Suppose you have carpets requiring special cleaning, such as old area rugs, original hand-woven pieces, or sensitive silk or wool. In that case, you are better off getting a qualified carpet cleaner like Christology Brisbane to help get the job done. Usually, an expert carpet cleaner will have advanced cleaning equipment and supplies to handle any type of carpet, including modern, vintage, and oriental carpets.

Your Laundry

Laundry cleaning is the least favorite house chore for most people. The process is tedious - folding clothes, separating socks, and collecting laundry after several rounds of washing is dull. But, like any other task, it should be done at least once a week to avoid having piles of dirty items in the house. Take care of yourself weekly to prevent a towering, intimidating pile of dirty clothes. Cleaning your laundry each week enables you to eliminate germs from laundry, including towels. Get other people in your household to help with this task to make the work easier. For instance, you could have kids help sorting and placing clothes in different bins to make the process easier.

Your Bathroom and Kitchen Surfaces

Each week, attention should be given to countertops, mirrors, grout, and tiles. Due to the wet and warm surfaces in the bathroom, mildew tends to build up if the area needs to be cleaned better. These areas need to be cleaned thoroughly and disinfected. Keep bathroom and kitchen surfaces dry to prevent mildew accumulation. Periodically, consider hiring an expert cleaner to give your grout and tiles a professional scrub.

Your Kitchen Apparatus

Though your kitchen appliances may not have any visible signs of dirt, consider cleaning them thoroughly each week. Your refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and stove are often covered by fingerprints, food bits, natural oils, dust particles, dead skin cells, and anything else in the atmosphere. But these are just some of the appliances your cleaning should focus on.

Consider cleaning other smaller appliances weekly, including your mixer, blender, and toaster. For smaller appliances, you will need several microfiber cloths and a multi-purpose cleaner or a mixture of water and white vinegar or lemon juice to get the job done. For large appliances such as dishwashers, stoves, and refrigerators, consider using a disinfectant to clean their surfaces at least once every week to keep the dirt from building up.

Bedsheets and Pillowcases

Each week, you spend almost 50% of your life lying on your bed - on your sheets and pillows. This means that sweat, germs, and body oils have accumulated on your bedsheets and pillowcases by the week's close. Cleaning your bedding regularly enables you to sleep better and prolongs your life span. They also have a clean smell and look better than when they are not cleaned every so often.
