Dirtiest items in your home and how to clean them

There’s no place like home to cosy up and just chill. However, some areas of your home can potentially be a breeding ground for harmful bacteria and germs. Here are 5 dirtiest items in your home that we think you should take note of.


Carpets are comfy and practical for any home but they can also host up to 200,000 bacteria per square inch, yuck! Carpets are known to be approximately 4,000 times dirtier than a toilet seat! Therefore, you should vacuum and disinfect it frequently to kill the bacterias and germs.

Sheets & Mattress

We spend more than 8 hours on our bed, sleeping, playing with our phone, watching movies and even sometimes snacking. This eventually causes sweat, bacteria, mites and other microorganisms to accumulate on your pillow and mattress. It’s important to freshen up your sheets regularly to keep the place where you rest your head clean and odour-free. You can book our UltraCare Disinfection with Mattress Cleaning now to get rid of dust mites and germs for a healthier bedroom environment.


Doorknobs are something we touch every day and according to a study, one-third of the doorknobs tested positive of having a bacteria that is commonly related to the common flu. During this pandemic, the germs or bacterias on your hands can be easily transferred to your doorknobs. Hence, disinfect your doorknobs frequently to ensure the safety of you and your family. The good news is that doorknobs are incredibly easy to clean. To create an eco-friendly spray, you need to prepare vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and several spray bottles and spray away!

Kitchen Sink & Sponges

It goes without saying that your kitchen requires a good cleaning on a daily basis. This is because both kitchen sink and sponges are known to trap food particles and tons of bacteria, which can easily transmit during food preparation. These bacterias can cause diarrhea, food poisoning, fever and other diseases. Don’t let your dirty kitchen damage your immune system!
