Just like your bathroom needs to be immaculate because that is where you clean yourself, your kitchen has to be spotless since here is the place you cook and eat. However, it’s not always easy to leave everything spotless and sometimes you need expert help. Some of the dirtiest parts in this room don’t even cross your mind, therefore you need a professional cleaning services company to make everything shine again.
It’s the case of HBSOnTime.com (Home & Business Services), a family-owned company operating since 2013 in the Greater Fredericksburg Area, VA.. They offer professional cleaning services (residential, commercial, window, air duct, carpet), as well as home maintenance, handyman services, and turnkey services. When it comes to the kitchen, they have some tips worth sharing, that will help keep it not only a clean place but a healthy one too.
Under and behind appliances. Dust and debris thrive in these places, therefore you need to pay great attention to them. Experts in professional cleaning services recommend pulling out the appliance and vacuuming with the hose and the crevice attachment. Another way to do it is to use a microfiber duster, that should be slid behind the appliance and then pull out as much debris as you possibly can. Although cleaning under and behind appliances is rather optional than critical since the dirt and grime are out of reach and don’t pose a significant health hazard, you should do it for your appliances’ sake since their performance will significantly increase as a result.
Microwave touchpad. Companies that offer professional cleaning services warn that the microwave touchpad is one of the top-five kitchen spots to sanitize after preparing the food since it can become cross-contaminated, and it’s also obvious when it’s grimy. First of all, you have to open the microwave, so you don’t activate any of its settings, then wipe the touchpad with a cotton ball dipped in a water & bleach solution (9 parts to 1). Last but not least, you should clean the frame and the door latch with a cotton swab dipped in the same agent.
Around the sink and faucet. Again, experts in professional cleaning services warn about the cross-contamination risks. The crumbs on the surface should be brushed off by using an old toothbrush, with quick and short strokes, while any gunk remains should be removed with a plastic tool.
Sink drain. After the sponge, the sink is the kitchen’s second dirtiest spot. However, cleaning the sink drain is not problematic if you do it regularly, about once a week. All you have to do is sprinkle with a friendly abrasive, then scrub with the same toothbrush, paying special attention to the grooves. After flushing with water, you should apply the same water & bleach solution, for disinfection, and then buff dry with a cloth.
In conclusion, now you know what are some of the dirtiest spots in your kitchen. However, if you want the job to be done perfectly, our advice is to always opt for professional cleaning services!
