4 Common Spots That Are Missed When Cleaning Your Home
Cleaning Your Home

As a homeowner, you probably already have a cleaning ‘system’ that you follow. For instance, you may start with the bedrooms before proceeding to the living room, the kitchen, and the bathroom. As much as possible, you want to ensure that every nook and cranny of our home is cleaned. Yet, there may be times that you can’t do a thorough job, and you end up missing certain areas untouched. 

Sparkle n Sheen Cleaning Services is here to share four common spots that are often missed by homeowners when cleaning, plus some helpful tips to make cleaning them easier:


You may be guilty of this: The house is cluttered, and you need to tidy up fast, perhaps because you’re having guests or want to get it done as soon as possible. So, you pick up all the clutter and throw them somewhere in the closet. You might have the intention of dedicating a whole Saturday to “deal” with the closet, but it’s been weeks or months, and it’s still waiting for attention.

Tip: If the clutter in the closet has gone far beyond what you think you can handle in one cleaning day, don’t get pressured to do it all at once. Instead, tell yourself that this will be your project for a week or two. Every single day within that period, you are going to come in, pick a spot in the closet that you’ll declutter and organize. Do this for just 10 to 20 minutes a day until you finish the entire closet. That’s going to be less tiring and frustrating than having to deal with it all at once!

Trash Cans

Among the many tasks at home, cleaning and taking out the trash cans may be one of the most dreaded ones. However, there’s no going around it. Sure, trash cans can get gross. But remember that they will get worse if you let them sit for days, especially when you start smelling the unfavourable odour!

Tip: Make it a daily habit to take out the trash. This way, nothing will rot or smell. It’s also going to be easier to clean the trash cans if you do it daily. Spray some disinfectant as well to help eliminate the germs and the foul smell!

Light Switches

You may be keeping your chandeliers and lamps shiny and sparkly at all times, but how about the switches? If you are like most homeowners, you probably often forget about light switches when you clean, too. Perhaps it’s because they’re not exactly things you look at when you check the room if it’s clean.

Tip: Start with the switches when you clean a room, that way, they won’t be forgotten!

Spaces Under Furniture Pieces and Appliances

It is not uncommon for homeowners to overlook those areas that are under their heavy furniture, like the sofa or the piano. Those are definitely hard-to-reach spots but that doesn’t mean you should leave them out when you are cleaning.

Tip: Wrap a strip of cloth or a rag around the broom handle and use that end to reach those areas under your furniture. That way, you can help avoid dust accumulation!


If you want to achieve a truly healthy home, every room must be cleaned thoroughly, from floor to ceiling and everything in between; no spot should be left neglected. However, it’s understandable that not all homeowners have the time, energy, or the patience to do a thorough cleaning. If you find it impossible to regularly deep clean your house, it will be better for you to get house cleaning services from a reliable cleaning agency.
