Maintaining cleanliness at home is mandatory, so that the occupants remain healthy. But, is it true that the way to maintain a clean house is to sweep and mop the floor every day?
According to experts, it’s really important to clean the floor of your house every day. But, not only the floor, table surfaces, especially in the kitchen and around the sink, must also be cleaned every day. This is because the kitchen, especially if it is always used, is the dirtiest part of the house.

Then, for those of you who have a bathtub at home, then Elizabeth Scott, Ph.D., co-director of Simmons College in Boston, suggests cleaning it every week. According to him, the bathtub keeps more bacteria than the trash so it needs to be cleaned regularly.
Mattresses and pillows also have to be cleaned regularly. Even though it has been coated with sheets, it does not mean that the two objects are free of germs. Carolyn Forte from Good Housekeeping Institute recommends cleaning the mattress every two months, by sprinkling with baking soda and using a vacuum cleaner to clean it. For pillows, clean every three months to prevent dust mites.
Other things in the house that are also rarely cleaned are refrigerators. The scientists say, you just have to clean the refrigerator at least once a month, especially drawers that hold fruits and vegetables. The reason, because the place can accommodate up to 750 times the level of bacteria.
