Everyone has those hard to reach cleaning areas in the home. Sometimes, it’s because we don’t have the right tools for the job. 

In this article, we’ll point out some of those hard-to-reach areas, how you can clean them, and the right tools to use.

How to Clean Hard-To-Reach Areas In Your Maryland Home

Cabinet tops

Cabinet tops, for a lot of people, are hard to reach. It could be due to the height of the cabinet, or they forget about the area entirely. Either way, dust will always find its way there, build up and form a sticky substance that can be tough to clean, over time.

Trying to clean this area with a dry cloth will make the matter worse. Apply a grease-fighting soap on a wet sponge to soften the sticky substance, then wipe the area with a clean rag.

The dishwasher

It is easier to clean a dishwasher if you have a free-standing variety. If not, you need to take out the unit from underneath your countertop completely. If you must clean behind your dishwasher, we advise you to leave it to the professionals. Especially if it isn’t the free-standing variety.

The ceiling fan

When the fan spin, they throw dust around the room as well as accumulate dust on the blades. You could use the vacuum cleaner attachment to remove dirt or use a long-handled ceiling fan brush to reach the blades.

The best way to clean the fan is to get on a sturdy ladder and wipe the blades with a little soapy water. You can still vacuum afterward if you didn’t get all the dust.

Behind the toilet

The area between the toilet bowl and the wall is usually hard to reach, especially if you are using the regular broom and mop. And this is the area prone to mold growth or mildew issues. 

To get this area thoroughly clean, you have to play in the dirt. Go down on the floor wearing a pair of plastic gloves and clothes you can afford to get dirty. 

First, use a strong-bristled brush to sweep the dust and dirt away. Then use a wet sponge and an eco-friendly cleaning solution to wipe the area. After that, wipe the area dry with a clean, dry rag.AA Restoration is your professional restoration company in Maryland. We take care of mold problems, water/flood damage, fire, and smoke damages.
