Housekeeping is something that all of us do either daily, weekly, or even once in a while, most importantly is that it is something we all share and it is something that most of us make mistakes while doing it without even realizing it.
That’s why in this article we will see some mistakes that we do in housekeeping that can affect our health and home in a bad way.
Read below to discover the 10+ mistakes in housekeeping that harm both our homes and our health!
1. Using a broom instead of a vacuum cleaner
When you are cleaning your house, the easiest way is not always the correct way. Using a broom to remove dirt and dust from the floor is not very effective, because the dust particles are too small, and the broom does not collect them instead it spreads them in the air and into your furniture.
That is why it is recommended to use the vacuum cleaner or a mop to remove dust and dirt from your house, even though they might take a longer time than the older broom method but they are more effective.
2. Pouring grease and oil into the drain or toilet
We all know that pouring hard items through the drain can make it clogged and it leads to pipes problems, but what most of us do not know is that even smaller things can clog our pipes and of those things is grease.
Yes! When you are washing your dishes you can easily remove grease using warm water and dishwashing products but when the grease goes down the drain it will solidify when it gets cold and hence it will be stuck on the pipes and will release a bad odor.
3. Not using a humidifier
Usually, when you move into a new house you worry about the house having a high humidity level, but nobody worries about the low humidity level.
High humidity can ruin the wallpaper in your house and make the floor damp, but it can only affect your house, on the other hand, the low humidity level is what you should worry about the most because it can affect your health, it can cause allergies and dry eyes, that is why you should always have a humidifier in your house.
