Are you a lazy cleaner? If the answer is “yes”, you have probably faked clean your home quite a few times already. Well, as much as that could work when your landlord visits, you should keep in mind that fake-cleaning doesn’t always mean germ-free.
Many believe that if it looks clean it probably is. That is the number one reason why your kitchen sink has more bacteria than the toilet! When you finish washing dishes, you simply rinse and leave, right? That’s fake cleaning! Well, in fact you don’t see it, but a simple rinse doesn’t remove germs and bacteria, neither it prevents the grease build-up in the drains where the bad smell comes from.
Secondly, many people also believe that if it smells good it’s most likely clean and that is another misconception. Many detergents leave a strong smell, but that doesn’t mean they are efficient enough to clean the bacteria. The chemicals may be able to cover up the nasty odour, but the bacteria is still lingering around. Actually, the strong fumes are the one reason we would advise you to use more natural products such as baking soda, vinegar, salt and lemon juice. They not only get the job done, but leave a nice smell, without polluting the air at home.
Even if you somehow manage to fool your landlord every once in a while with a quick cover-up of the problematic areas, in order to get your bond back during the end of lease final inspection, you need to do better than that. When it comes to end of lease cleaning and your deposit is at stake, we would suggest you to hire professionals to do it for you. They know how to clean and where to clean and in most cases they guarantee you’ll get your lease money back.
Now in order, to keep a healthy home always thoroughly disinfect kitchen and bathroom areas. It’s where bacteria lingers the most as these places are often damp and dark. In addition, kitchen sinks, counters and other areas are where you prepare meat and meat is risky too. Keep your oven sparkling and thoroughly clean your carpets. The carpets are the filters of your home and can make or break the quality of the air indoors.
