Check if your home is hiding dirty secrets

Despite your best cleaning practices, there are places in your home that might be harbouring built-up dirt. It is important for you to know about the nooks and crannies in your home that can be a potential health risk or even cause damage to your home.

Top 7 places for hidden dirt build-up in your home and how to fix them

  1. Carpets and rugs – the undersides of your carpets and rugs might be accumulating dirt and dust even when you vacuum regularly. Make sure you call a professional carpet cleaner every 6-12 months to give your carpets and rugs a thorough cleaning.
  2. Kitchen – your kitchen can hide some of the nastiest dirt and grime. Always check the cracks and crannies between the cabinets and under your appliances. Remember to clean your kitchen vent hood regularly to avoid a build -up of smoke and grease.
  3. Ceiling fans, chandeliers and skylights – Dust your ceiling fans and light fixtures with a feather duster or a damp pillow case so that the dust won’t rain on you.
  4. Toilet Tank – you often clean your toilets but sometimes neglect the tank. You may be surprised at what you’ll see when you open the lid. Turn off the water source and flush out the remaining water so you can clean the inside of the tank.
  5. Dryer vents – check the screen or flapper and clean out the lint often because this can be a serious fire hazard.
  6. Garbage disposal – always clean the underside of the black plastic splash guard on the disposal unit because gunk can stick to it, causing a nasty smell.
  7. Crawl/floor space – water from leaky pipes can sometimes penetrate your crawl space, or there could be a buildup of debris.

What happens if the hidden dirt and grime in your home is unchecked?

  • Dirt and dust can attract bacteria and dust mites, causing allergies and other diseases.
