“You missed a spot” is a phrase cleaners know all too well. Cleaning every nook and cranny can be difficult and frustrating, but the more you clean the easier it will get. In your home or office there are areas that often go overlooked, such as underneath furniture or behind your desk. Knowing where to clean is just as important as cleaning it. Here are four areas that often go overlooked when cleaning.
Underneath Furniture: Underneath your furniture is a safe haven for dust. When you are vacuuming your carpets you should move furniture and vacuum the dust that lies underneath your furniture. If you do not vacuum up dust underneath your furniture on a regular basis it can build up and require more extensive carpet cleaning in the long run.
Behind Electronics: Areas such behind your desktop computer, television or kitchen microwave gather dust because behind these objects there is typically less air flow. Dust can be damaging to your electronics and reduce their longevity so it is important to clean around them. Just make sure they are unplugged when you clean.
Large Flat Surface Areas: When cleaning large flat surface areas such as kitchen counter tops or a floor you should develop a system so no areas are left unclean. Start by removing any objects that will get in the way of your cleaning. Next clean the area from right to left or left to right to ensure you cover the entire flat surface area.
In Between Storm Windows: Cleaning in between your window fixtures is a cleaning task that often goes overlooked. This space gathers dust, dirt and pollen from the outside and if not cleaned will require you to clean your windows more frequently. When cleaning this area you should also clean your window screens which also trap dust, dirt and pollen from the outdoors.
