Keeping your kitchen clean is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also plays an integral role in preventing the harmful spread of bacteria and germs, which ultimately keep you and your family safe…. So what are you waiting for? Don’t let the family of grease living on your kitchen bench, run your life (and kitchen) anymore.
Reason #1: Saving you Food Costs:
Maintaining the food that you have in your fridge can help to reduce food spoilage. For example, have you noticed that when one potato goes off in your crisper, that all the other potatoes go off shortly afterwards? To prevent a spread like this you should throw away all spoilt food immediately, so that all remaining food does not go off also. Vegetables such as potatoes, pumpkin and onions should always be kept separately to other foods to stop the spreading of naturally occurring gasses in these vegetables, called ethylene gas which causes them to turn quickly.
Reason #2: Safety:
Who doesn’t love a clean kitchen; it looks beautiful and it makes you feel good! However, a clean kitchen isn’t just about the aesthetic benefits, it’s also about keeping your kitchen safe too. With the combination of electricity, extreme heat and sharp utensils all in one room, keeping an area clean has never been more important. So, clean up that bubbly you drunkenly spilt on the floor last night, to prevent someone else slipping over; and make sure to wipe up that grease splattered on the stove top from the steak you just cooked, to stop a fire from starting. Don’t be that person who has to go to the emergency room due to a silly kitchen mishap, so please, just keep your kitchen clean!
Reason #3: Saving You Embarrassment:
They aren’t wrong when they say that the kitchen is the heart of the home. Whether you like it or not, the kitchen is always full, including when your friends come over for the weekly dinner party. This is why it doesn’t surprise you that all your friends gravitate towards having a drink or two in the kitchen, rather than hanging around your living room. So before your Mum in law keeps bringing up the time she opened up your kitchen cabinet, and a cockroach flew out and hit her in the face, simply keep a clean kitchen. Come on? 10 minutes a day ensuring your benches are looking beautiful can’t be that hard?
Reason #4: Save you (and your family) from the adverse use of harsh chemicals.
It’s easy to think that you have to bring in the big guns when things get dirty. The reason why cleaning agents used in the kitchen kills germs so easily, is due to the harsh and concentrated chemicals that are within them. Oh, and not to mention, most of the time, these chemicals leave a trail of residue behind, making your kitchen look like a greasy oil slick, even though you just cleaned it. Although we might think it, as humans, we aren’t actually safe from the detrimental biological effects these harsh cleaning agents have on our health. So let’s at least try and minimise HOW MUCH of these products you’re using. With regular maintenance, you can limit the amount of product you use, whether you choose to go with green cleaning products, or the more powerful type of cleaning agents. If you’ve ever spent a weekend of heavy-duty cleaning only to have your home smell like you’re preparing a chemical stew, you know what we mean.
Don’t worry, a few crumbs here and there is nothing to obsess about, simply 10 minutes a day can save you a whole weekend of pain. Or if you would rather, we offer kitchen cleans in our house cleaning services. Book Now
