There are some apparent signs that your home needs a good cleaning. Dust, piled dishes, and items on the floor are clear indicators that it’s time to clean or organize your house or call us to do so. However, it wouldn’t be in true Misty Clean fashion if we didn’t challenge you to think about the things that aren’t so obvious. Here are some surprising signs that your home is not as clean as you think.
Sign #1: Your Socks Pick Up Dirt and Hair
On the surface, your home may appear clean, but take a thorough look at your socks. Do you notice hair? Are they discolored? What this means is that your floor needs a deep-clean. An effective way to take care of your flooring is by using a microfiber mop. Microfiber cleaning products pick up dust and dirt more effectively than traditional cleaning products and use less water.
Sign #2: Your Sponges Don’t Smell the Best
One way to ensure that your cleaning sponges or rags don’t leave behind an unpleasant smell is not to leave them soaking in water. Make sure to ring out sponges and rags after each use. Another common cleaning mistake is not replacing scrubbing pads. Scrubbing pads are detachable, you can switch them out, and you should.
Sign #3: The Grout in Your Bathroom is Discolored
So, maybe this is one of those signs that isn’t surprising. Still, we’d like to shed some light on this issue. Typically, a bathroom with discolored grout has moisture issues and improper ventilation. As a result, black mold can form. When black mold forms, this goes deeper than being a cleaning concern. It is a health concern. Grout brushes exist, and of course, it’s always best practice to clean your shower and tub after each use.
Sign #4: You Never Take Your Shoes Off When You Enter the House
Sign number 4 is another one of those signs that probably didn’t make you gasp, either. Still, we can never express enough why shoes and carpets don’t mix. When we leave our homes, our shoes pick up a plethora of bacteria. Bringing dirt into your home is devastating. It’s helpful to have a rug right at all of the entryways of your home, and of course, to never wear shoes in the house. Plus, certain types of shoes, like high heels, can damage a hardwood floor.
