There isn’t much that feels better after a long day at work than coming home to a clean house. Adversely, stepping into clutter and dirt can put a real damper on the rest of the evening.
In fact, an estimated 98% of all homeowners feel better about themselves when their house is clean. Who can blame them when there are so many things that the average person must worry about each and every day, such as work to complete in the next few days, or bills to pay, without needing to worry about the junk around the house?
Unfortunately, cleaning clutter is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to cleanliness. The hidden, microscopic germs would be enough to make anyone cringe if they were actually visible. These germs can end up causing illnesses for adults and children.
One of the most hazardous elements of bacteria is how long it can stay alive if not properly disinfected. Some germs can live on dry surfaces, such as childrens’ toys, for up to several hours. In conjunction, bacteria can survive on moist surfaces, including bathroom fixtures, for as much as three days. Without powerful cleaning agents or professional help from maid services, it can be difficult to eradicate these germs.
Knowing where to look is also important to maintaining a clean home. While there are obvious areas that need attention, such as the bathroom, even objects people use on a daily basis can hold substantial amounts of bacteria. The average kitchen dishcloth, for instance, can contain up to four billion living germs. All of those get rubbed across dishes after they’ve already been washed.
For some extra insurance, maid services and other professional cleaning services can use powerful sanitizers and will know the nooks and crannies where germs hide. Instead of sitting anxiously in all of your clutter, maid services can offer some peace of mind so you can go on with your everyday life.
