10 dirtiest spots in your houseNew Delhi: Clean your home not just for aesthetic reasons, but also for the health of your family, and take special care to remove dirt from neglected areas like kitchen cabinets, ledges or even around
New Delhi: Clean your home not just for aesthetic reasons, but also for the health of your family, and take special care to remove dirt from neglected areas like kitchen cabinets, ledges or even around exhaust fans, says an expert.
Here are some tips from Samrat Goyal, co-founder, Broomberg.in, a new company offering high-tech cleaning service:
1 Above kitchen cabinets and ledges: Try going higher than eye level and look at the top of the kitchen cabinet or on top of any ledges. Dust and cooking oil fumes sure do make a 'sticky' combination and you will find plenty of those there.
2 Around and on switchboards: A surface is not just dirty if it looks dirty. You need to be more regular at cleaning up switchboards simply because people touch switches regularly making them ideal places where germs are deposited and picked up.
3 Around exhaust fan: Your kitchen and/or bathroom exhaust fan blades are cleaned once in a while, but what about the area around the exhaust window? We bet you would find a thin layer of grime (dust and cooking oil fumes) that is sprayed outwards by the blades.
4 Above Geyser: Your storage type water heater is such a useful thing. But what about the top? Take a look and you will find layers and layers of dust that have been accumulating unchecked for years.
