Our homes are filled with all kinds of surfaces – bench tops, kitchen sinks, windows, mirrors, glass tables, picture frames, book shelves and many more. It’s no secret that these surfaces can quickly accumulate a collection of dirt, streaks, and grime if they are not cleaned regularly. There’s grease in the kitchen, dust in the living area, and soap scum in the bathroom. Not to mention the barrage of spills, stains, fingermarks and crumbs that family life tends to bring about on a daily basis! It can be easy to overlook surfaces when we’re cleaning the house, but cleaning surfaces should be a regular part of the home-cleaning routine.
The importance of keeping surfaces clean
Cleaning surfaces not only makes your home look sparkling and welcoming – it also ensures proper hygiene and plays an important role in protecting your family’s health. Kids touch an incredible number of surfaces throughout the day and can pick up germs or bacteria quite easily if the areas they play in are not cleaned regularly. If your home is particularly dusty, family members who are prone to allergies or asthma might find their symptoms become aggravated if surface-cleaning is not carried out regularly. All your kitchen surfaces can also affect your family’s health, as food preparation areas must be cleaned daily to ensure a build-up of grime or caked-on food doesn’t occur. Keeping all household surfaces clean can help protect your family’s wellbeing by making sure dirt and germs don’t accidentally wind up in a playpen or on a dinner plate.
