3 Places You Forgot to Clean

Many Atlanta, Georgia, homeowners forget to maintain areas that are harder to reach or are out of sight. When these areas are not cleaned, they may cause health concerns, such as allergies and asthma. The following are three spots that homeowners should remember to clean.

Ventilation Hoods

Ventilation hoods are ducts that are installed above the stove and are meant to exhaust the smoke formed during cooking. The majority of homeowners never clean their ventilation hoods, although it is very important to do so. Dust and allergens get stuck on the filters of the ducts, causing many potential health issues. It is best to clean your ventilation hoods once a month. Remove the filters and soak them in dishwashing liquid and hot water. After that, gently scrub and dry the filters before putting them back.

Fan Vents

The fans in the bathroom suck up moisture and a large amount of dust. Within a month, a significant amount of dust and allergens can get trapped on the vent of the fan, which can cause allergies and infections. These fan vents should be cleaned once every three months. The right way to clean fan vents is to remove them and soak them in soapy water for 30 minutes. Then, scrub them to remove all layers of dust. Be sure to dry and vacuum the vent before putting it back.

Windows

Depending on your location, window covers can trap a large amount of dust and allergens. Dirty window coverings can lead to many respiratory issues including asthma and allergies. It’s best that you dust your window coverings every few months with the upholstery tool on the vacuum; more frequently if you have pets. If the fabric is machine washable, you should wash it on gentle cycle; otherwise, dry clean it. If there are pets in your house, wash window coverings and curtains more often.
