Things We Forget to Clean at Home, A Must-List 

Things We Forget to Clean | PCT Clean

When you look at your home, it’s easy to spot what needs to be cleaned if there is obvious clutter. For example, you have piles of dishes or soiled clothes. However, if you want to ensure a clean, safe, and fresh home, you shouldn’t miss a spot. 

Unfortunately, there are areas in most homes that are neglected during an ordinary cleaning session. If you think you can’t handle deep cleaning, there’s no need to worry because professional cleaners are here to help. 

At Prestigious Cleaning Team, we have the best experts that will leave your home spotless. Call us if you don’t have the time for deep cleaning.

Areas Often Neglected When Cleaning 

Below are a few places in your home that are possibly filthy. Make sure to check these whenever you are doing your regular cleaning. 

Sides of Your Furniture 

Most of the time, we look under our beds or sofas to see if there are dust bunnies, and that’s a good thing. 

The question now is, have you thoroughly checked all sides of your furniture? For example, your table braces and bed frames might accumulate dust over time. Make it a habit to look at these, especially if someone in your home is sensitive to allergens. 

Walls Behind Your Curtains  

We suggest you open your curtains or blinds to see the condition of your walls. If you haven’t paid attention, it’s 100% guaranteed that there will be dust. 

You can work from the top and slowly go down using a duster. Don’t forget your baseboards as well. You may need to use a damp cloth for areas with high humidity, including your bathroom and kitchen. Remember, humidity can turn dust into soil, which might be harder to remove with a regular duster. 

Closet Floors

Cleaning your closet is more than just organizing your clothes and shoes. You must also check your closet floors because it can get dusty overtime. If it’s carpeted, it can be a breeding ground for mold and mildew, which can be harmful to your health if not addressed. 

Once in a while, take everything out of your closet so you can properly clean it. This is also an opportunity to remove clothes you can sell or donate. 

Top Surfaces of Furniture 

When cleaning, most of us try to ignore what we can’t see right away. These include the top of cabinets, doors, ceiling corners, and even picture frames. It’s useful if you have a ladder to give you a better overview. While on top, check your light fixtures as well. 

Vents and Air Filters

To ensure that your air filters and vents are working perfectly, regular cleaning is necessary. This will help your entire household breathe fresher air. 

If this is something you are not confident about, you can always call the Prestigious Cleaning Team, and let them do the hard stuff. 

Cleaning Tools 

This might seem like an odd tip, but believe us, it does make sense. 

When was the last time you cleaned your mops, vacuums, and sponges? Probably never, right? If your cleaning tools are filthy, you can’t expect a safe and healthy environment. Change the filter, wash the mops, or dispose your cleaning tools if needed. 

Indoor Plants

In recent years, many people have embraced green living, adding actual greens inside their homes. That’s amazing. But if not just about watering and giving them enough sunlight. If you want to have a real green and healthy home, you should also clean your indoor plants. 

You can use a showerhead, or if it is too big, you can always have a microfiber cloth. Some are even using a hairdryer on cool setting to remove the dust. 


Let’s admit it. The oven gets all the attention when cleaning. It’s time to give your dishwasher fair treatment. Don’t wait for your dishwasher to stink. Make it a regular task so that your dishes will be thoroughly clean all the time.
