Healthy living starts with consistent cleaning, but there are some places we forget

Most of us spend at least half of our day at home, so it is important to ensure that the home environment is conducive to our health. So get rid of anything that can be harmful to you, especially dust, moisture, bacteria and toxins. Some places in your home that you might not think to look into are covered in an alarming amount of bacteria. We’ll reveal what these are and how to clean them properly.

Often neglected and bacteria-rich places

Things we use and touch every day. Places that we often forget about in our normal cleaning routine. Such places are ideal for bacterial growth.


You touch them at least ten times a day, so take the necessary care to keep them clean. Wipe down switches daily, ideally disinfecting them, and maintain good personal hygiene, especially on your hands.


Remote Control

Did you know that there are usually 10 times more bacteria on its surface than on the toilet? So clean your remote control daily, antibacterial hand gel will do the trick.


According to research, a computer keyboard can harbor up to 10 million bacteria. So clean it thoroughly at least once a week.

Watch out for cleaning products!

When buying cleaning products, reach for the less harmful ones. Those that contain vinegar and citric acid are ideal. If you use cleaners containing ammonia, be sure to open the window when using them. Ammonia irritates the respiratory tract and can lead to lung disease.


How to dust?

Dust in the home is a potential source of health problems. It can contain not only dust mites, which are dangerous for allergy sufferers, but also bacteria and fungal spores. Do you only get coughing fits or stuffy noses when you are at home? Do these problems disappear when you leave the premises of your home? The cause is certainly settled dust. Some dust particles remain in the room even after a thorough cleaning. Wet cleaning or a vacuum cleaner with a good filtration system (e.g. HEPA) that does not allow dust particles to escape with the exhaust air can help.
