Chart Shows You How Often You Should Clean Neglected Parts Of Your Home

How often do things like ovens, pet beds and more really need to be cleaned?

Some areas of our home we clean frequently, like our kitchen counters or bedroom floors. But other parts of our house we leave neglected until absolutely necessary, which means there may be places in your home that you’re forgetting altogether.

I don’t know about you, but I definitely forget to clean my oven. It’s just not top of mind. It can be difficult to keep up with everything and keep track of what needs to be cleaned, but luckily, you don’t have to figure this out all on your own. We’ve got a chart for that!

Thanks to housewares provider Moshells, you can reference the handy chart below that helps you determine how often you need to tend to the neglected areas of your house. For example, you may not have realized that you should be cleaning your garbage disposal once a week along with your light switches and door knobs. Something like a dishwasher or the shower needs to be tended to monthly. And you do need to clean your air conditioning unit and your chimney once a year.

It might seem like a lot, but using this chart can help you develop a routine so you can keep your home clean and up to date. Thankfully, the chart also provides information on how to clean each of these areas of your house, along with a brief explanation of why it’s important. Did you know that dirt, food and grease all build up in dishwashers over time, which could cause them to smell and keep your dishes from getting clean?

Print it out, keep it on your fridge, download it on your phone—whatever it takes to keep your house sparkling clean, you’ll be grateful you have this handy-dandy chart to help you along the way.
