Even the most diligent, tidy people can't clean every surface in their home. Sometimes messes are out of sight, and out of mind, and other times they are hiding in the everyday details of life. These sneaky places can harbor germs, bacteria, and allergens that can ultimately affect your overall home health. According to the experts at Zerorez®, here are the 8 dirtiest things in your home that you'll want to clean ASAP:
1. Kitchen Sponge:
Your sponge is one of the dirtiest things in your home. It can harbor millions of bacteria, including E.coli and salmonella. A dirty sponge seems almost counterintuitive. Sponges are cleaning utensils in nature, but they get dirty quickly. Make sure to sanitize it regularly by microwaving it for a minute or running it through the dishwasher.
2. Shower Curtains:
Your shower curtains are also a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Just like how your towels need to be washed, your shower curtains do, too. If you can't figure out why your bathroom has a weird smell, try checking your shower curtains out. Wash them regularly or replace them every few months to keep up with your home's needs.
3. Toothbrush Holder:
Your toothbrush holder can also be a hideout for bacteria and mold. Make sure to clean it regularly with soap and water to protect your toothbrush and your oral health.
4. Remote Control:
Your remote control can also harbor germs and bacteria. It's one of the things in your home that gets used often, and not many people think to wash their hands before picking up their TV remote. Make sure to wipe it down regularly with a disinfectant wipe to keep things clean.
Doorknobs are another surface that gets daily use without much thought. For that reason, they also have plenty of bacteria. Pay attention to how often you, friends, and neighbors use the doorknobs and make it a goal to clean them off once or twice a week.
6. Light Switches:
Light switches are often overlooked, but are yet another source of bacteria and germs in your home. What's the surface you usually touch before washing your hands? The bathroom light switch. Just like doorknobs, you'll want to clean these once or twice a week to ensure that you stop bacteria and germs in their place.
Carpets can hide allergens, dirt, dust, and other grime. Zerorez® can take care of that chore for you! Minimize your to-do list and improve your home health with a carpet cleaning to ditch the dust and dirt.

Every time you run the air, you spread these pollutants all throughout your home. Get your air duct cleaning with Zerorez® to rid your home of the messes that hide out of view.
