People often mistake bad habits as not a big deal but as time goes by these little habits can potentially be big problems. Here are 3 bad habits that are causing bacteria growth in your home and how you can break it! 

Not washing bed sheets regularly

Even though your bedsheets don’t get visibly dirty or smelly as clothes do, they still need to be washed regularly. This is because bed sheets can be a hot-bed for breeding germs and viruses. As you know these microorganisms love damp and warm spaces, and what better than your bed. 

Experts suggest you wash your bed sheets, pillowcases or blankets at least every other week, but weekly is ideal. Otherwise, you will continue to sleep with germs and viruses which can cause you allergies, fatigue and headaches.

Defrosting raw meat on your countertop

As harmful microorganisms can thrive quickly at room temperature, leaving meat or poultry to defrost on the kitchen countertop allows millions of microorganisms to flourish! These harmful microorganisms could easily lead you to food poisoning, diarrhea, vomiting and other diseases. A quick hack to defrost meat or poultry is leaving them in the refrigerator overnight. 

Since the researchers have found that Coronavirus can live on the surfaces of countertops for several hours or even a day! Be sure you sanitize surfaces on a daily basis. If you need help with cleaning, you can book Kaodim deep cleaning service.

Using too much cleaning product
