Most of us are guilty of this oversight – when we think of clean houses, we only envision clean walls, dust-free surfaces and a pleasant aroma in the home. Very rarely does one think of the floor – and yet, the floor is the most important element because it attracts the maximum amount of dirt and dust.
The first point of contamination for the floor is our footwear. We wear our shoes outside the home, then we walk all over the house in the same shoes. The floor soon begins to get grubby. Then there is dust and dirt from the environment, which settles on the floor during the day. Floor dirt can also be transferred from place to place by our feet and shoes, by air, or by crawling children and pets.
A dirty floor soon loses its pristine shine, and starts looking dull and splotchy. Besides, it has the propensity to make you and your loved ones really sick. The germs on the floor can easily get transferred to your feet, hands and clothes. These germs are remarkably resilient and may cling to the skin and clothes for hours on end. Soon, they enter the body and make us sick.
The dirtiest floors in the house are found in the kitchen and the bathroom. The kitchen floor is subject to food and liquid spills all day, and if these are not cleaned up at once, they can attract flies and bacteria. Also, merely mopping the floor with water is not enough. A good germicidal floor cleaner liquid like Dettol Disinfectant Multi-Use Hygiene Liquid can give you the cleanest, most hygienic floors.
