According to research, your home could be a home for thousands of bacteria, fungi, and other microbes. That can happen because of the improper cleaning methods used by you. And if you think it is impossible because you keep your house clean, think again carefully.
With careful thinking, you will find many hidden spots in your home that remain unclaimed for several days, weeks, or even months. You don’t clean those hidden areas during the spring cleaning as well, and the pile of dust keeps depositing there.
Here I will share the 6 most hidden areas in your home, and you should clean that as often as possible.
Edges above your height:
All the edges that are above your height may have a pile of dust on them. This could be your window or door edges, any design in your home, or picture frames. When you clean, you see the dust in all the other places, but the upper edge or corner always remains hidden. In that situation, you never think about cleaning the upper part of the edge, and the dust pile keeps depositing there.
Eventually, you end up having a thick layer of dust in that hidden place, and it also becomes the nesting ground for many microbes. Hence, it is advised that when you clean your house, you clean the hidden edges as well to get rid of dust from those areas.
You may have many drawers in your home. Some of those drawers could be frequently used by you and others may have junk material that is useless to you. If a drawer has only junk material, it will be useless for you, and you will never reach that drawer in any condition. However, dust does not avoid this kind of place, and dust reaches there very quickly.
Since the inside of those junk drawers remains hidden from your eyes, so dust deposition keeps increasing, and you realize that only when you open those drawers after months or years. If you don’t want to see a pile of dust in your drawer, ensure it does not remain hidden. You can simply get rid of all the unused stuff by donating it or throwing it, and you can put things in those handy drawers.
Under the furniture:
If we talk about more hidden places for dust, then under the furniture would surely come on that list. If you take a flashlight and check just under your bed or sofa with it, you will find a big dust deposition there. This dust comes from the sofa or bed via a traditional medium, but you don’t clean it very often.
If you ignore the cleaning of any place, the dust will certainly claim it’s right there. So we may not blame the dust for it because we often miss cleaning those places. And if you don’t want to have this issue, then you only need to clean this hidden area in your home, and you will indeed have a clean house.
Curtain dusting and cleaning:
If you want to see a cloud of dust in your home, do a simple thing. You can take a curtain in your home and hit it hard with some sticks. Once you do that, it will release some of the dust on the curtain. If you keep doing that, it will release the dust until all the loose particles are removed from the curtain. Although curtains always remain in front of your eyes, you don’t see the dust because its fine particles go inside the fabric.
Also, most of the time, people choose dark colors for their curtains so that does not look dirty. But that color selection becomes a big help for dust and remains hidden from your eyes. To get rid of that hidden dust and avoid any health issues, you should often clean your curtains. You can check the dust deposition in your curtain by hitting it with a stick, and if you see it releasing dust, you should think about washing it.
On your carpet:
Many homes in Singapore can have carpets to increase comfort and aesthetic value. That is a good choice and sure it increases your aesthetic value and convenience. But if you don’t clean it properly, you will have a lot of dust deposition on the carpet. The worst thing is that dust particles remain hidden in the carpet and a big pile may remain hidden there without having any visibility to your eyes.
I don’t have to explain that it will be unsuitable for your family members. If they have a problem with a dust allergy, then those invisible particles on your carpet can do a lot of harm to them. To avoid this situation, it is always a wise idea to do carpet cleaning using a vacuum cleaner regularly.
If you remove one of the pictures from the walls, you will automatically understand why I consider that a hidden spot for dust. You can remove the pictures and their side-by areas when you clean, but you may avoid cleaning behind the photo. The same thing goes for wall clocks and similar other objects as well.
So, if you don’t want to dust deposition in these hidden places, then ideally, you should remove the frames from the walls every few days and clean that place. It will keep it clean and dust-free for you in the best possible manner, and you will get good results and have no problem.
