When you’re cleaning your home in Orange NSW, there are always those areas that you absolutely dread doing. The bits that are hard to reach or stubborn to clean and you can spend hours trying to clean them properly. But the good news is, there is usually a way around it. These are some of the trickiest areas to clean and how you can make it easier for yourself.
Hard To Reach Dust
Trying to keep on top of the dust around the home is a bit of a pain. It’s not a problem in most places because you can easily polish the tables and other surfaces, but there are always those tough to reach spots or even the areas that you forget about entirely. For example, around the edges of picture frames or on the top of kitchen cupboards tend to get missed out when you’re cleaning. Anything that is hanging on the wall should be taken down and dusted every once in a while and you should invest in a duster with an extendable handle so you can get to those hard to reach spots. Cutting down on the amount of dust in the first place is the easiest way to keep on top of those tricky areas so make sure that you’re vacuuming as much as possible and dusting other areas regularly. The less dust there is in the house, the less will settle in those frustrating spots.
A Greasy Hob
When you’re cooking, there’s always bits of grease and food that splash out of the pan and end up on the stove top. If you’re a particularly messy cook, you’ll know this problem all too well. When that stuff gets burnt on, it’s a real pain to get off and you’ll spend ages scrubbing at it to try to get it clean. But it doesn’t have to be that hard if you don’t want it to be. Often, it’s so hard to get off because you’ve left it until it’s dried on and you have to go at it with a scourer to get it up. But if you give it a quick wipe to get the excess off and then spray some kitchen cleaner on there as soon as you’ve cooked, you can let it sit for a while until you’ve eaten. Then, when you come to do the washing up afterwards, all of that grime and grease should wipe off easily. If the grease is particularly stubborn, you might need a stronger degreaser to get it off. You should also use a microfiber cloth because it’s the best for soaking up the grease. Rinse it out between each wipe to get any excess grease out and it’ll pick up more with each wipe
The Oven Clean system and products are totally caustic-soda free, so there are no nasty fumes (unlike most DIY oven cleaning products) and it is totally safe for children and pets to be around whilst the clean is being done. The oven is also ready and safe to use as soon as the clean is complete.
Behind The Toilet
This is definitely one of the worst places to clean in the entire house because it’s so hard to get into. It’s the area that gets neglected the most but that’s dangerous because the bathroom is one of the most dangerous areas for germs. If you’re going to keep your home germ free, you’re going to need to find a way to tackle it. The easiest way to get around it is to install a floating toilet bowl and eliminate the space altogether so next time you’re redoing your bathroom, you should definitely consider one. In the meantime, you might just have to suck it up and get down there. You can get a mop with an adjustable head that makes it easier to get behind there but the best way to clean it is to get on your hands and knees and give it a good scrub. As long as you do it regularly and don’t leave the dirt to build up, it should only take a few minutes. It only gets bad when you avoid doing it until it gets really bad.
This may say sound obvious, however when it comes to beating the winter germs it’s all about the consistency of cleaning and making sure that germs are not spread by cleaning equipment. Ensuring that the surfaces in all rooms are regularly disinfected is one of the best ways to combat the spread of germs.
A Mouldy Shower Curtain
When your shower curtain starts to get wet and damp, it’ll grow black mold spots on it and start to give off a musty smell. It’s pretty unpleasant and you might think that you just need to throw it away and get a new one, but if you start doing that every time you’ll be changing it every couple of months. Luckily, it’s actually easier than you think to get rid of that mold. First off, you need to stop it from happening in the first place. The best way to do that is to dry it out properly after you shower. Always pull the curtain across so it’s not bunched up and if you’ve got an extractor fan in the bathroom, leave it on for a while after you shower. But even then, you’re going to get some mold growing on there sometimes but you can get rid of it. Most shower curtains are machine washable but normal detergent won’t cut through the mold properly. Put the curtain in the machine with a bit of baking soda and vinegar as well as normal detergent and let it soak for a couple of hours, then put it on a normal cycle. If the mold is quite bad, you’ll probably need to do it a couple of times. If you’ve tried it a couple of times and the mold is still persistent, then you might need to get a new curtain.
