Cleaning your house or apartment can sometimes be a daunting task, but you don’t have to do everything at once. Here is a list of suggested cleaning intervals for things around your house to help you keep things tidy year-round.
Sheets: Asthma, hay fever can all be triggered by dust mites. It’s best to clean your sheets once a week.
Pillows: Over the course of time, things like dust, sweat and even the oils in your skin can increase the weight of your pillow as well as gather germs. It is best to wash them every 3-6 months. Fun tip: put a tennis ball or two in the dryer while drying your pillows to maintain the fluffiness.
Mattress: Mattresses can also gather dust and sweat. It’s best to clean them every 6 months.
Carpet: A quick steam once a year, after vacuuming, can help air quality in a room.
Refrigerator: To ensure that your food stays is in a germ-free environment, it’s recommended to clean your fridge at least once a week!
