SAN JOSE — Whether you do your own house cleaning or contract the services of a professional, there are certain aspects of cleaning that can be easily overlooked. While visible surfaces tend to get cleaned on a regular basis, when it comes to hidden or hard-to-reach areas, it’s often a case of “out of sight, out of mind.” However, many people don’t realize that neglecting these areas can lead to sanitation issues, especially in rooms like the kitchen and bathroom.
In the kitchen, areas such as behind the refrigerator, beneath the stove or in the range hood can provide a place for dust and grime to build up. Likewise, in the bathroom, areas like behind the toilet, under the sink, or in high ceiling corners can harbor unseen mold or bacteria. In either case, if bacteria are allowed to accumulate, it can pose a potential health hazard.
A good way to avoid sanitation issues in your home is to hire a house cleaner to perform deep, detailed cleanings on a seasonal basis. Having thorough cleanings performed three or four times a year will ensure that both visible surfaces and less prominent ones get cleaned.
