Everyone with a home has some sort of cleaning routine that they usually will do in the same order to not forget anything. But what they don’t realize is there are plenty of spots that are overlooked when cleaning.
Although these places are frequently overlooked, when cleaned they can actually make a huge difference in the overall cleanliness and comfort of your home. Take a look below to see what you’re missing when you’re cleaning your home!

Air Vents

Air vents are something that is easily overlooked when cleaning. You may notice the floor registers when you are cleaning the floor because you’re looking at them, but what about the ones on the ceiling? When was the last time you looked at them?
These registers in the ceiling can become caked with dust, causing it to blow all over the house. The dust can be a major cause of allergies for some people, so cleaning these vents not only looks better, but can actually help you feel better as well. In the case that you haven’t cleaned your vents before, here are some awesome guides on the internet for tips and tricks.

Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are another ceiling thing that will easily accumulate dust and is not often remembered when cleaning. Similar to cleaning your air vents, cleaning your ceiling fans will help to eliminate dust and allergens from the air in the house. To clean them, use a duster on an extending pole or use a ladder to get close enough to use a regular duster.


Doorknobs and handles are some of the most touched surfaces in your whole living space. It is for this reason that they should be cleaned more often than they generally are. With the number of people that touch the same door handle in one day, it’s a good idea to make a habit out of cleaning them.
When you hire a professional cleaner, this is something that will definitely be cleaned, so you should make a note to wipe them down whenever you’re cleaning. A simple disinfecting wipe should do the trick, but professional cleaners, like The Clean-Up Crew, are using electrostatic fogging in this time of pandemic to make sure and get rid of all COVID-19 related germs.

Remote Controls

Other heavily touched objects in the household are remote controls for a video game system, T.V., ceiling fan, or anything else you can think of. Everyone in the house touches them, and it’s not commonly thought of to clean them habitually. They can accumulate germs just as well as the doorknobs and should be wiped down with a disinfectant wipe every so often.

Even if you feel like you clean very well and don’t miss anything, most of the time there is something that’s missed. If you want to be certain of everything being cleaned as good as it can, the best idea is to hire a professional cleaner like The Clean-Up Crew. We’ll make sure to get all the spots most people would miss.
