There are many people out there who may not be aware that there are many spots in a kitchen that are neglected. Many of these spots are neglected because they are hard to reach, or the homeowner may not be aware that the spot can harbor dirt and debris. By taking a few minutes to check certain areas of the home, a homeowner can ensure that their kitchen will be cleaner than ever.
Under and behind the refrigerator
There is a great deal of debris and dust buildup that can accumulate behind and underneath a refrigerator. Many people think that this is not the case since they do not intentionally push or place any of this material under or behind this appliance. A person would be surprised to know that small food items, packaging, and even pet food can find its way under or behind a refrigerator. This debris, depending on the composition, can start to produce an unsavory odor. This is why it is a good idea to clean behind the refrigerator in order to add a new level of deep cleaning to the kitchen.
Behind the Stove
Just like with the refrigerator, there are many times that food and packaging materials can find its way behind or underneath the appliance. Typically, more food will be found underneath and behind this appliance since this appliance is used for preparing meals. It is a good idea to sweep out all of the debris from underneath and behind this appliance and then wipe out the area with a mixture of one part bleach to four parts water to make sure to kill any bacteria that may have developed on the floor or walls due to the food decaying.
Inside kitchen cabinets
It is a great idea to remove all of the items that are in kitchen cabinets and give them a good wipe down with the same concentration of bleach and water that was recommended for behind the stove. This is because there are times where small rodents and insects can become attracted to food that is housed in the cabinets and they can leave waste that is not only unsightly but also unhealthy.
It is a good idea to deep clean a kitchen at least once a month to ensure that the kitchen is free from bacteria and other harmful contaminants to increase the beauty and cleanliness of the area.
