Warding off the summer colds

Few things can put a damper on summer vacation like a summer cold, and Charlotte maid services can be your best defense. There are many reasons that people catch summer colds such as:

  • Contaminated air conditioning
  • Crowded facilities such as shopping malls
  • Swimming pools
  • Travel on trains, buses, and planes
  • Playgrounds and amusement parks

However, many of us fail to realize that just like charity, most summer cold begin at home. The best maid services in Charlotte and Kannapolis realize this and work hard to keep on top of germ-friendly places in your home. Consider the following:

Sinks and counter tops

We automatically assume that the sink is generally a clean area in the kitchen. However, sinks are crawling with bacteria because they are constantly in contact with food and bacteria. Astonishingly, kitchen sinks and counters are more contaminated than the bathroom sink.

Coffee machines

The coffee water tank is a damp, dark environment; which makes it perfect for growing molds, mildews, and other bacterium. It is important that you clean out your coffee brewers every 40-80 brews.


Stove handles are some of the filthiest places in your home. In fact, the stove handles have been proven to be worse than the kitchen sink. Think of all the times we handle raw foods and meats and use our contaminated hands to operate the oven controls. This also includes the controls and handles of the microwave.

Toothbrush Holder

Not only is the toothbrush holder a common source of growing bacteria, it is a common way that germs are passed from a sick family member to a healthy one. As bad as it may sound, cleaning the toothbrush holder once or twice a week can help reduce the chance of spreading harmful germs.

Pet food dishes

Even pet-lovers who would never let their beloved pet eat out of a dirty dish, fail to consider the fact that dogs can transmit diseases such as ringworm, hookworms, roundworms and other infectious bacteria. Cleaning the dog or cat dish once a day is sufficient.

Oven mitts

Oven mitts are dirty for the same reason as stove control knobs. Inside the mists may have been used by contaminated hands, and the outside of the mitts are exposed to foods and juices that can grow bacteria.
