Clean Every Week

If you are like many people, you don't like it when visitors just show up without letting you know in advance. Besides having to adjust your daily logistics, there is always the fear that they'll find some flaws in your home - some areas that are not as clean as they ought to be. Though some things in your house need cleaning every day, their areas that need to be cleaned less frequently. 

But this does not mean they are any less important - their state of cleanliness does matter every time you open your house to guests. These items can be cleaned once every week. This does not necessarily mean that all of them should be cleaned on the same day, you can choose to 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 not possible to see the dirt and dust particles on the surface of your carpet, lots of germs and bacteria get trapped in these house fittings. A 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. To make your carpet cleaning work easier, consider using home-made mixes such as apple cider or white vinegar, plain soap, baking soda, and water.

If you have carpets that require special cleaning such old area rugs, original hand-woven pieces, or those that have sensitive silk or wool, you are better off getting a qualified carpet cleaner such as Carpestology 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 involved is a bit tedious - folding clothes, separating socks, collecting laundry after several rounds of washing is clearly boring. But, like any other task, it should be done at least once a week to avoid having piles of dirty items in the house. If not taking care of weekly, you can end up with a towering, intimidating pile of dirty clothes. Cleaning your laundry each week enables you to eliminate germs from laundry including towels. To make the work easier, get other people in your household to help with this task. For instance, you could have kids help with sorting and placing clothes in different bins to make the process easier.

Your Bathroom and Kitchen Surfaces

Each week, attention should be given to counter-tops, mirrors, grout, and tiles. Due to the wet and warm surfaces in the bathroom, mildew tends to build up is the area is not cleaned well. 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. Often, your refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and stove are covered by fingerprints, food bits, natural oils, dust particles, dead skin cells and anything else present in the atmosphere. But these are not the only appliances your cleaning should focus on.

Consider cleaning other smaller appliances including your mixer, blender, and toaster on a weekly as well. 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 dishwasher, stoves, and refrigerator, 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 by the close of the week, lots of sweat, germs, and body oils have accumulated on your bedsheets and pillowcases.
