Cleaning Tricks to Make Your Home Healthier throughout the New Year

1. Clean countertops regularly. Countertops aren't only where food is prepared, but it’s also where dirt, dust, bacteria and allergen particles floating in the air often settle. If you've got a countertop with granite or tile, it’s best to choose a mild cleaner and preferably one that will refresh the sealer. It is important to keep sealer fresh to avoid bacteria from entering the porous areas of the stone.

2. Keep carpets and rugs clean. Vacuuming and routine cleaning are beneficial in maintaining cleaner carpets,
but aren't really enough. For that reason, the EPA recommends getting carpets cleaned professionally at least one time every year. Homes with pets and/or children, it is recommended to choose a cleaning service, such as Chem-Dry, two or three times every twelve months. For homeowners with pets, it’s advisable to have a professional cleaning service which has an effective urine detection and removal process. To eliminate absolutely the most germs from your own own carpets and rugs, request adding a sanitizer in the cleaning process to kill off and eliminate bacteria plus a protectant, which puts a protective coating for the carpet fibers and makes it much easier which ensures you keep carpets cleaner for a longer period of time.

3. Don’t
forget about your upholstered furniture. Vacuuming upholstered furnishings are nearly as easy is just as important as carpets, especially in the high-traffic areas like family rooms. It’s recommended to vacuum the upholstery in your home once every other week and also have it cleaned professionally once per year.

4. Sanitize high touch points
of your home, including door knobs, toilet handles, faucets and switches. Spending several minutes sanitizing those areas, particularly pre and post guests come into your home, could go a long way toward minimizing multiplication of germs. More preventive techniques to minimizing multiplication of germs include being vigilant about washing your hands regularly in the day and placing a bottle of hand sanitizer in your high-traffic areas of your home, that makes it convenient and easy to have your hands clean and germ-free.

5. Use door mats or area rugs in entry ways and high-traffic areas,
these may do a great job of trapping dirt and allergens before they get into the heart of the home. The reality is that carpets and rugs end up as filters that capture and trap dirt, dust and allergens and stop them from going into the air and spreading within the home. On hard surfaces, these particles simply settle then are stirred back into the air next time there's traffic and activity in the area. Using door mats and area rugs is a great and inexpensive technique to prevent unwanted and unhealthy particles from getting deeper in your home or from residing in the air where they may spread easier to members of your family.

6. Check and replace your heating and air conditioning filters. While furnaces
are necessary to keeping homes warm during the colder months, it’s important to change the furnace air filter at regular intervals in order to avoid dirt, dust and other unhealthy particles from being distributed around the house. Follow the recommended replacement timing for each and every filter which is located on the package. To remember when it’s time to change the filter, write the date that you’re performing the replacement on the outer edge of the new filter that you’re installing to make it easy to know whenever your next one is due.
