Which bits are you missing during your house cleaning
Category: House Cleaners
But have you missed a spot? Quite possibly. Here we list some of the most common areas people neglect during their house cleaning ritual.
Behind your toilet
The bowl is shining and you've scrubbed the seat to within an inch of its life. You've also freshened up your loo with a citrus-scented rim block. But have you paid any attention to the back of the toilet?
Often the area behind the pan ends up covered in dust and general grime because we forget to get down on our hands and knees and give it a good wipe over. Remember there's more to your toilet than the bits you can immediately see.
Underneath and behind your toaster
Be honest, when you wipe down your kitchen surfaces, do you simply wipe around the toaster or do you lift it up every time and wipe underneath and behind it?
If it's the former, you might want to take a quick look. Chances are there is a whole heap of toast crumbs lurking behind there just waiting to attract pests like ants and mice. Make sure you empty out the crumb tray regularly too.
Inside your toothbrush holder
If you store your toothbrushes in a cup or holder, you need to clean it out regularly to get rid of any gunk lurking at the bottom before it becomes a health hazard.
Indeed, bacteria can easily spread to your toothbrush - that handy piece of personal hygiene equipment that you put in your mouth every day. So each time your clean your sink, give the toothbrush holder a good scrub too.
Behind your television
The days of having one plug in a socket behind your TV are long gone. Now, with digital set-top boxes, DVD players, games consoles and internet routers all working simultaneously, the area behind most people's goggle boxes tends to resembles spaghetti junction.
Of course, all those wires and extension cables are a magnet for dust, and they're also a total pain to clean, which is why we tend to forget about them. If you can't face dusting them all, call in professional domestic cleaners every now and again to tackle this and all those other fiddly jobs.
