Forgotten Areas of Your Apartment that Should be Cleaned
You may have just cleaned your apartment, and at first glance, it may look spic-and-span. But there are probably some areas of your apartment that you didn’t even think about while cleaning that could use your attention. The following is a list of places you might have overlooked:
- Under the couch – Because your couch covers the floor and never moves, you might think the floor underneath will remain clean, so you simply vacuum around it. However, dust can accumulate under your couch and items can even roll under there, so it’s a good idea to clean under your couch every once in a while.
- Under the refrigerator – Dust and dirt can easily amass under the refrigerator, making it another spot in your apartment that should be cleaned occasionally. Just move the fridge a few feet, sweep and mop, put the fridge back in place, and you’re all set.
- Trash can – You may be thinking that because the trash can is the place where you collect your trash, it doesn’t need to be cleaned. But food and liquid can seep through the trash bag to the inside of the trash can where it can leave a foul-smelling odor. It’s a good idea to wash your trash can out once a month to keep your home smelling fresh.
- Doorknobs and light switches – These items are touched by different people every day which can lead to a heavy accumulation of dirt and germs. By wiping these items down on a weekly basis, you can reduce the number of germs in your home.
