Expert cleaning tips to keep your home safe from germs

Home is where we all feel safe and secure. And yet, even at home there is an invisible danger that we forget about - germs and bacteria. Here are some cleaning tips from your favourite online dry-cleaners to keep the germs, bacteria and viruses away from home. 

Toxic carpeting

Carpeting is a fixture at home that tends to get forgotten as it fades into the background. As time passes, your carpet attracts and retains greasy residue, dirt, soil, bacteria, mold and even unhealthy toxins lurking in the air. You should wash your carpet regularly with the help of dry-cleaning and carpet cleaning services such as Spin N Press. This applies doubly so if you have children or pets at home. Another good tip is to replace the carpet entirely every 3-5 years to avoid germ build-up over a long period of time.

Tidy up

Unclean surfaces that are touched often are a hotbed for viruses if left unchecked. To take care of these viruses simply do routine cleaning and disinfecting at home. Keep your house tidy, not allowing clothes and furniture to be laid about unattended. Apart from being a safety hazard, that might cause people to trip and fall, it is also a cleanliness hazard and might harbour germs and bacteria. Clean, disinfect and sanitise any open surfaces or objects that you see, especially contact points such as doorknobs, handles, locks, light switches, faucets etc.

Radon poisoning

Radon is an odourless, tasteless and potentially deadly naturally occurring gas. It is the second-largest cause of lung cancer in humans. The only way to discover this issue is by conducting a radon test. If you do find high levels of radon in the air inside your home, then you can install a radon mitigation system to reduce it safely and harmlessly.

Air quality

While we might invest in gym memberships, a balanced diet and try to follow a regular sleep schedule we often overlook the air we are breathing. Studies show that long-term exposure to air pollution can cause damage to our nerves, brains, kidneys and other organs. We might not be able to control the air outside our home but it is our responsibility to ensure that the air inside is clean and safe to breathe. Frequently change your home’s HVAC filters, open a window once in a while and don’t be afraid to invest in plants and air purification systems. Good quality air purification systems have been proven to trap airborne particles, bacteria and viruses as a safety measure to ensure that the air remains clean and safe at all times.

The best way to take care of these invisible dangers is to take measures in advance. To do so you need to stay up to date with your cleaning, laundry, dry-cleaning, and organising duties. Preparing in advance is the most effective way to keep these unseen dangers away from your home.
