Women washing her hands in Palmetto

 

Microwave touchpad

    • When was the last time you cleaned the oil and food splatters on that bad boy? Exactly. At least 3 months. Gross!

Ice Tray

    • Why should you clean something that only holds water? Letting it sit in vinegar and warm water works great for silicone trays. For plastic, Once a month it is wise to put that tray in your dishwasher.

Carpets

    • Most people are unsure about how often carpets should be cleaned, crazy right? They are in almost every home!
    • To keep that dirt off your carpets, and to keep them plush you should vacuum twice a week.
    • Most carpet manufacturers state in their warranty that every 12-18 months you should have your carpets professionally cleaned. Most experts agree that the number increases to 2x a year if you have kids and pets.
    • If it’s time for your professional clean reach out to Chem-Dry of Palmetto.

Trash Can

    • Have you ever taken the trash out and your trash can still smells? This job is definitely gross, but that is why it must be done! Scrub the bottom!

Cell Phone

    • This is the dirtiest thing in your entire house…and you put it on your face constantly. Studies have shown that 16% of phones have E. Coli bacteria on them. Yeah. I know. It’s time to clean it..like right now. It is recommended to clean your phone 1x a day AT LEAST.

Vacuum Filter

    • Your vacuum does nothing if your filter is dirty. You may think, of course, I clean my vacuum out! However, many people only clean out the bag or collector and forget entirely about the filter. 

Shower Curtain

    • Don’t shower next to mold and mildew! Gross! Throw that curtain in the washing machine 1x a month.

Tile

    • This often just takes a simple wipe down if you stay on top of it. The problem? Most people don’t clean their tile very often resulting in discoloration and grime that takes a lot of scrubbing and product. If the tile really needs a good shine, it’s a safe bet to call Chem-Dry.

Air Vents

    • Pay attention to all that dust build-up on your vents! Really get in there and give them a deep clean so you can breathe easy. 

Door Knobs

    • Bacteria can stay alive on those metal surfaces for up to 8 hours. YEAH. Think about how many people don’t wash their hands that well (yes, I’m talking about your six-year-old), and you should be sprinting to wipe those down.
