What Is in Your Home that May Have Caused Your Sickness?

What-Is-in-Your-Home-that-May-Have-Caused-Your-Sickness

What are the things that make you physically unwell? Is it the cafeteria door handles? Can it be the subway railings? How about the dirty forks from that restaurant you just ate in?

Generally, when we think of the things that have been making us sick, we look into the places we went to. We did not realize that our own homes may have been breeding harmful microorganisms.

Greenforce Clean Team, a provider of Cleaning Services in San Francisco, California, lists some common household items that may have caused your sickness. These items are:

  • The trays and drawers on your fridge

    We put our leftover foods in our fridge that is why nobody seems surprised when one sees spills on drawers and trays in your refrigerator. These spills may be harmless but if it has been sitting there for months, they may attract bacteria and collect molds. After, they could sneak into your fresh foods and poison the entire household.

  • The sheets of your bed

    It may be unpleasant for you to hear but those white sheets you have been sleeping on may make you sick. These sheets are havens for bed bugs and dust mites. They can easily trigger your allergies or cause hay fever.

  • The molds hidden from your sight

    Your house is a big mold magnet. Molds can grow on wallpaper, drywall, and even wood. So no place in your abode can be safe from these little guys. They can cause sickness and trigger an allergic reaction.

  • The bath mat

    The reason why you put that fluffy mat outside your bathroom is so you can wipe your wet feet dry. But how would you feel when we say that the mat you think is clean is the breeding ground of harmful bacteria that could be making you unwell now?

  • The vacuum cleaner you have been using to clean your house

    Sometimes, the dirtiest objects are the ones we use for cleaning. Your vacuum is your best friend when it comes to cleaning your house. But did you know you also have to keep your best friend clean? The accumulated dirt in the vacuum may pose a threat to you and your family.

  • The products you use for cleaning your house

    Aside from the equipment we use in cleaning, your cleaning products may be threatening your well-being. Some of these cleaning products are not environment or human-friendly. It can cause irritation and be hazardous to your health. That is why we use eco-friendly products as we deliver our Home Cleaning in San Francisco.

There are numerous reasons why we get sick and our home is not exempted from it. But what if you don’t have time to clean? We strongly recommend you invest in House Cleaning Services. As they say, prevention is better than cure.

How Often Should You Clean This? (Bedroom Edition)

How-Often-Should-You-Clean-This-Bedroom-Edition

As providers of House Cleaning Services, we have seen enough surprises in the bedroom – dirty sheets, unclean mattresses, the list goes on! And along with the surprises, we have learned quite a lot from our cleaning experience.

The Greenforce Clean Team has listed off the things you have in your bedroom and the number of times you should be cleaning it. How often should you be cleaning the following?

  • Sheets

    Answer: Once every week

    Many people claim that it is already good to wash their sheets and their pillowcase after two weeks. Others even say once a month.

    Every night, we shed our skin and if we leave that unclean for weeks, it could mess with our sheets. Have you noticed that once you put on a clean sheet on your bed, the sheet feels lighter? The additional weight of your sheet is caused by the dead skin you shed every night. That is why it pays to clean your sheets weekly.

    And if that does not convince you, then we still have one in store for you: bed bugs. You don’t want them to sleep with you, right?

  • Mattress

    Answer: Once a year

    Mattresses are heavy that is why people overlook it. But you should not do so because mattresses gather sweat, pollen, dead skin cells, food particles, dust mites, etc. It is a haven for bacteria to thrive.

    But how does one clean his or her mattress? As providers of Cleaning Services in San Francisco, California, we guarantee you do not have to squeeze your mattress in your washing machine. Vacuum it. And if there are stains, sprinkle baking soda on it and let it sit for 20 minutes. Re-vacuum afterward and follow up with a damp sponge and a mild house cleaning solution. If you can, dry your mattress under the sun.

  • Pillows

    Answer: Every three months

    Just like your mattress, your pillow magnets dusts, pollen, sweat, etc. It provides comfort not only to you but also your microscopic friends. This is probably the reason why your allergies continuously irritate you.

    There are a number of ways how you can wash your pillow. We recommend following the instruction on your pillow’s tag.

  • Under the bed

    Answer: clean thoroughly once a month

    If you clean under your bed, do it weekly. It is also advisable for you to clean it thoroughly once a month. Do not forget to include under the dresser.

    Your carpet may look clean but notice once you vacuum it. It will reveal all its hidden secrets. If you have a carpet in your bedroom, vacuum it once a week.

    Cleaning your bedroom needs to be done regularly. If not, you may be in for the toughest cleaning in your life.
