Door Knobs and Light Switches

As these are high touch point areas of the home, they are prone to be dirtier than most. As they are so small, it is easy to overlook them when cleaning the home. They have a huge germ concentration because everyone in the home must touch them to get around.

Pet Bowl

Your dog or cat’s food bowl should be wiped daily in order to keep it germ free. Your pets may be outside and bring many germs and bacteria. The bowl is a feeding ground for not only germs, but mold and yeast too. Ensure to wipe it daily and disinfect it every week to keep you and your animal’s health in tip top shape.

Kitchen Sponge

With the moisture from cleaning dishes, the food particles and the warmth of the kitchen, a kitchen sponge in fact can hold more bacteria than anywhere else in a messy home. Replacing your sponge weekly and disinfecting it daily is essential to keep a healthy kitchen.
