The first place that you never really clean is your gutters. It’s not a fun job, and it usually involves you getting mucky and having to go up on a ladder to reach your gutters in the first place. There are professionals that you can call to do this, but when the time comes that you do clean out your gutters, you are likely going to ask a family member to do it, if not yourself. The gutters are particularly unpleasant, not just because they are hard to reach but because depending on how long you have left it, what comes out could smell. Also, you never know what you are going to find up there which is another reason people don’t want to do it.
The carpets in your home capture so much stuff that you probably don’t even realize. Hairs, skin cells, and literally everything else is currently living between the fabric of your carpet, and ideally, you want to get rid of all of this. Nobody wants carpets that are full of these things and smell because of them, which is why you should be cleaning them every couple of months or so. If you don’t want to do this, or you simply don’t have time, then there are carpet cleaners out there who do this for you. It saves you a job, and you know that you are going to get a professional service, so it’s a win-win.
Under Heavy Appliances
The last place that we’re going to talk about is under heavy appliances. This includes things like the refrigerator, or the oven if you have a free standing model. It can be tough to get underneath and behind these areas, but they can be pulled out so make sure that you do. Depending on when the last time you cleaned it was, there is likely going to be a lot of gunk under there waiting for you.
Instead of allowing this to happen next time, simply move the appliances, and if you get stuck, ask for help.
