Cleaning the computer keyboard - Toronto House Cleaning

If you want to keep your house clean and tidy at all times (and who doesn’t?), you have to clean it fairly often. In some cases, it means dusting on a daily basis, not to mention general weekly or bi-weekly cleaning.

The more often you clean, the more likely you are to overlook certain areas, mostly the inaccessible or hardly accessible ones. Or maybe there are areas that you simply neglect. But, if you want your Toronto house cleaning sessions to have enough effect, here are the often neglected areas you should also be cleaning.

Computers and other electrical appliances

We spend a lot of time on or around our personal computers, working or using our free time to enjoy a movie or look something up on the internet. During this time, we tend to grab a snack directly in front of the screen and above the keyboard. So, it is no wonder that crumbs and other leftovers weasel their way between the keys on the keyboard and elsewhere on your desk.

Whether you have a laptop or a desktop computer, you should clean it thoroughly to eliminate all dust which can irritate you. This is also a way to avoid unnecessary heating or malfunctioning. This also applies to mobile or stationery phones, which can be the source of many bacteria, as well as remote controls for TV sets, also in frequent use.

Lamps and lampshades

There are dozens of different types of lampshades, but they all have one thing in common. They attract a lot of dust, whether you use them every day or not. Since we usually put lamps next to our beds, for reading light, that dust can really affect us. The lampshade upholstery should be vacuumed with special attachments and they need to be wiped with a microfiber cloth for complete coverage.

Door handles and knobs

Every room has a door and also a door handle or a knob. They are areas which you touch every single day. At the same time, these areas are a breeding ground for bacteria. You need to pay special attention to them during cleaning, and this is especially important if it’s flu season. The spreading of germs can be stopped with a strong anti-bacterial agent.


This is another area which is really close to your face, since headboards are next to where we sleep. Even though clean sheets are the most important, cleaning the headboards themselves should not be neglected. If not regularly wiped or brushed, they can accumulate dust which can affect your breathing while sleeping and cause respiratory problems.
