Why You Need to Maintain a Clean Kitchen
Following a routine weekly or biweekly maintenance clean schedule for your home, it is helpful not only for your sanity, but also for creating a clean healthy space for you and your family to eat, sleep, and live your daily life in harmony and happiness. Today, let’s focus on one room in particular that commonly gets a lot of use yet not enough care.
It’s one of the most frequently-utilized rooms in your home (unless you live by ordering takeout every night and dining on the couch). We wish we could say that wiping the counters down a few times a week could cut it, but the truth is that grime and bacteria accumulate in the kitchen rather quickly and often go overlooked amidst our busy lives. Avoiding routine cleaning of your kitchen is a recipe for disaster. Here’s why!
Behind Closed Doors
Your kitchen is full of appliances and cupboards that are kept closed the majority of the time. What’s behind them?
- Beautifully shined glassware
- Silverware you can see your reflection in
- Perfectly alphabetized spices
- Pantry items organized in groups of the meals you’ll be preparing over the next week
- Fresh refrigerated foods that are definitely not spoiled or making the shelves sticky
Okay, maybe that’s all just in our dreams. Realistically, it’s tough to keep every part of the kitchen clean 100% of the time. Why? Because we use it!
Some of us are in there at least three times a day just preparing meals. But when we don’t keep the kitchen clean on a regular basis, we’re essentially inviting bugs to move in rent-free and they begin to feed their little in size but large growing “family” of pest. These pests love to feed off our spills. Crumbs, food scraps, spilled drinks, and even old wet dishes in the sink can attract these little pests and foster bacteria.
So Much To Do, So Little Time
When you clean your kitchen, there are many areas that need your attention, including:
- Black splash
- Wall decor
- Light fixtures
- Blinds and window sills
- Large and small appliance exteriors
- Microwave interior
- Cabinet fronts
- Floors and baseboards
- Table and chairs
…and the list, unfortunately, doesn’t end there. Feeling overwhelmed? That’s why Immaculate Clean is here!
