There are many areas of the home you may not think often about cleaning. Your
window treatments, shower curtains, and baseboards are just a few that should be dusted
and cleaned regularly to avoid potential health problems.
Window sills tend to be one of the most neglected areas of the house, and
this can mean increased allergies and asthma symptoms. Dust, pollen, and
bugs accumulate on window sills first because of their proximity to the
outdoors. It is essential that sills be dusted and cleaned every week
during your regular household chores.
Anything around the window should be cleaned and dusted at least once a
week. This includes your window treatments, whether they are curtains,
blinds, or shutters. Dust or vacuum your window treatments every week
or so, and have them professionally cleaned according to the manufacturer’s
In addition to vacuuming the floor, cleaning the baseboards should be a
regular part of your household chores. These areas attract dust bunnies,
grime, and hair. All of these and more can increase allergy symptoms and
detract from the look of your home.
Shower curtains are constantly exposed to moisture, soap scum, and bacteria.
If they are not wiped down and cleaned regularly, then you risk exposing
yourself and your family to potential mold growth and mildew. The various
bacteria that can build up can also damage your shower curtains, resulting
in increased replacement costs.
Toilet bowls are one of the most important areas to clean, yet they are
some of the most neglected areas too. The bathroom is already a breeding
ground for mold and bacteria. Toilet bowls often harbor most of a bathroom’s
mold growth, E. coli, and various other toxins. The toilet bowl, and everywhere
around or below it, should be cleaned often.
