Overlooked Spots In Your Home That Are Harboring Germs

by Mignon Lagatta Real Estate Group 11/24/2019

You honestly may not get the chance to deep clean your home very often. When you do clean your house, there are a few places that are harboring many germs that are easily overlooked. Below, you’ll find some of the dirtiest areas in your home that need to be scrubbed well.


Handles And Knobs In The Kitchen


You’re handling everything in the kitchen from dirty dishes to raw meat. After touching these items, you’re grabbing drawers, refrigerator door handles, oven doors, and more. All of the bacteria that is on your hands is transferred to these items. You should scrub these areas down on a weekly basis with a simple vinegar and water solution.


Your Computer And Accessories


If you’re like most people, you spend a lot of time at your computer. You eat drink, talk on the phone, and everything else right in front of your computer. It’s a good idea to rid the bacteria that are collected all over your computer and accessories. You can detach the attachments from your computer a dab them with a mild soapy water solution, or just wipe them down with a pre-moistened anti-bacterial cloth. 


The Toothbrush Holder


You use your toothbrush to clean your teeth, but do you ever clean the place where it sits? You can quickly place your toothbrush holder in the dishwasher once a week, or sterilize it with hot water and soap. As a bonus, you should clean your toothbrushes by boiling them in water for a few minutes. 


The Handrails And Doorknobs 


Everyone uses the railings on the stairways, but it’s a good bet that no one cleans them very often. You can use a simple hot water and vinegar solution to scrub railings and doorknobs down. Wipe them dry, and they’ll be as good as new with less germs. 


The Light Switches


As you go in and out of rooms, you probably don’t think of cleaning off the light switch panel. Germs are easily spread there as people go in and out, turning a light on just to wash their hands. Vinegar and hot water will do the trick here as well. Just wipe switches down with a cloth soaked in the solution and pat dry. 


The Sinks


While you may wipe down around your sink often, the faucet and surrounding areas may need a little love. Faucet handles should be scrubbed on a daily basis with hot soapy water. As a bonus, if you want to make your sink shine, create a paste with vinegar and baking soda. Once you scrub it on the faucet, rinse off for a fantastic shine.

Hi, and thanks for visiting. Please allow me to a share a bit about myself and my background.

I’m a Native Nevadan, born and raised in Carson City, and have resided in Reno for the last 13 years. I have two beautiful children who are my first love next to Real Estate. I love the Reno-Sparks-Tahoe lifestyle and all it has to offer and am very proud to call Northern Nevada my home.

I grew up in Real Estate with my mother owning her own Real Estate brokerage in Carson City. Prior to Real Estate I owned my own business in Reno which provided me the knowledge of how important customer service is and that customers always come first.

With each client I deliver personal attention. I listen to what you want, work hard to achieve your goals, and help you manage the entire process. If you ask my clients, they will tell you they felt as if they were my only client.

With putting you first, my knowledge of negotiating the best contracts, of Nevada real estate practices and of individual neighborhoods from Sparks, Reno to Lake Tahoe, it makes me your best choice to sell your home or find you a new home.

In addition to my license as a Realtor, I’m also a Certified Distressed Property Expert, a Certified Residential Specialist, a member of the Northern Nevada Association of Realtors and of the National Association of Realtors. I am the founder of Thank You Ma’am Reno, a local non-profit giving back to other non-profits in the Northern NV community.

I am happy to provide references upon request. Contact me today and let me help your dream of owning a home in Reno, Sparks or Lake Tahoe a reality. Call or text me at 775-771-1557. Or you can email me at [email protected]
