Why you can't clean the hallway half-heartedly
Category: Domestic Cleaning
In fact, it's the hallway that can take some of the harshest punishment day after day, so you need to make a point of cleaning it regularly.
Think about what it has to contend with frequently. It's where you wipe your feet when you step foot inside, or worse, walk dirty stains onto first.
It's also the place where you'll probably take off and leave your coat and shoes - and who can ever know just how much dust, grime and general muck they will have picked up throughout the day?
Next, you might throw your keys and any post on the sideboard before dealing with it properly.
So why are you not doing a proper job of keeping it clean? After all, it's a part of the home that is guaranteed to be used by every single person who lives there probably twice a day at least.
It's also the first part of the house that you'll see when you get home, so surely you want it to be a clean and inviting sight every evening.
That's why it's crucial that you stay on top of the cleaning. Simply shaking the welcome mat outside helps, but it's not really enough.
It's got to be dusted and the floor really needs to be swept, both with a brush and a mop with floor wipes attached.
Only then can you be reasonably confident that harmful germs have been eradicated, but still, you can only do so much.
That's why it's often a good idea to call in a professional cleaning service every once in a while.
They can bring their specialist knowledge and equipment with them to really get to grips with this all-important room of the house, and do the tough jobs for you to a high standard.
