Home Maintenance Tasks You Keep Forgetting About

Let’s face it – you’re busy. But you managed to chisel some free time out of your busy schedule to tackle a bunch of spring cleaning tasks and your significant other is quite happy about it. However, there are a bunch of maintenance tasks that you keep forgetting about and the longer you neglect them, the dirtier your place is becoming. If you can squeak out a few extra minutes this weekend, here are the spots you need to hit:

Bathroom Floor

Sure, you vacuum the bathroom floor regularly and you might even mop it from time to time, but are you making sure you pay extra attention to the area around the toilet?

It’s dirtier than you think…

Just think about how many germs and gross things splash out of the toilet each time you pull the lever for a flush. Focus on this area in particular the next time you remember to clean the floors.

Tile Grout

While we’re on the topic of floors, when was the last time you scrubbed the grout in between the tiles? This is another area that commonly gets overlooked, so we advise you to take a look at how dirty is really is.

You can use a toothbrush and water or vinegar mixed with a bit of baking soda and give it a good scrub. When you’ve finished with the floors, take your supplies to the shower, too!

Fan Blades

Warmer weather is on the horizon and that means you’ll be using ceiling fans to keep the house cool for the next couple of weeks. If you forget to clean the blades however, you guessed it…

…all of the dust and dirt that has built up on them throughout the fall and winter will take off into the air and then into your lungs as the blades whirl through the air.
