Why Kitchen & Bathroom Cleaning is More Important in the Summer

Plus 9 Tips for Tackling these Rooms

Having a clean kitchen and bathroom is important for everyday health and wellness. However, it takes on a new priority in the summer. Here’s why, along with some summer kitchen and bathroom cleaning tips.

Summer Kitchen and Bathroom Cleaning

Some rooms in your home are more widely used and prone to harboring dirt and germs. Kitchens and bathrooms are two of these hot spots. From food spills and taking care of daily business, it’s important to keep these areas clean for more than just your health. This is especially important in the summer when the heat and humidity creates ideal conditions for bacteria, mold, and pests to thrive. Keeping food out too long in the heat can cause it to spoil quickly and also attract pests. Ants, flies, and cockroaches are some insects actively on the hunt for food and water. Plus, moisture from steamy showers are attractive to silverfish, cockroaches, and mold. Keeping the kitchen and bathroom dry and clean can help prevent these problems. Here’s how:

  1. Sanitize countertops, cutting boards, and other surfaces to help reduce the spread of bacteria
  2. Disinfect high-touch surfaces like faucets, handles, and toilet seats
  3. Check the area under the sink, behind the refrigerator, and around windows for signs of mold
  4. Wipe down kitchen surfaces to clear crumbs and spills
  5. Sweep floors to collect crumbs and dirt
  6. Securely store food off the ground
  7. Clean exhaust fans, stovetops, and ovens to help keep your kitchen air fresh and clean
  8. Scrub tile, grout, and other bathroom surfaces to help reduce moisture
  9. Declutter kitchens and bathrooms to make it easier to clean and give pests less places to hide

While summer is often seen as a time for rest and relaxation, it would be more relaxing to rest in a fresh, clean area not infested with mold and pests. Establishing a quick cleaning routine can help prevent buildup and make deeper cleaning easier.
