The Dirtiest Spots in the Office

The office, unlike what we may feel about it, is a public place. And because we spend a lot of our time in the office, we often forget about that fact. We tend to think as if we’re at home but we should always be aware that it’s nothing like our homes.

The employees coming from their houses from different places gather here. Every common facility is being used by many people. We don’t know how much germs are lurking on every surface yet we think they’re all clean.

Even though the office looks harmless and clean, you have to think twice. Read on and discover the inconvenient truths in the office. Maybe you have no idea how jam-packed of germs the following are.

  1. Elevator Buttons

Everyone uses the elevator every day. Germs accumulate most especially on the buttons. You might as well nudge them with your elbow to avoid the spread of germs.

  1. Phones and Computer Keyboards and Mice

Talk about the most touched objects. Do you regularly clean yours? It is best to have cleaning tools and sanitizers near your terminal.

  1. Sink Faucet Handles

As we all know, all the hands of all the people in the office touch the faucet handles. You’re just trying to wash your hands but are they really being cleaned in the process?

  1. Microwave and Refrigerator Door Handles

The many hands and the combination of food make these terribly dirty. You have to be careful to become in contact with these germs.

  1. Coffee Makers

Aside from the microwave and refrigerator, let us not overlook the coffee makers. How often are these cleaned, really? Next time you grab your coffee, make sure to clean it after emptying the pot.

Now you’re aware of some of the dirtiest spots in the office, try to be more careful next time. Sneezing and sniffles around the office could be a sign that you have to take part in disinfecting the everyday items you use.

Useful Tricks to Keep a Clean and Dry Home during Bad Weather

Severe weather always takes us by surprise. But in every situation, preparation ahead of time is key. While not every storm damage can be prevented, it decreases the risk of other problems from occurring. Go over these tricks and have a clean, safe and dry home even during bad weather.

  1. Inspect your yard.

Expect the worst to happen. When you see dangerous tree limbs hanging, don’t hesitate to remove them. Yes, trees are good for the nice weather but they can pose risks during severe weather. It’s better to be guided by a professional to make sure that the trees in your yard are in good shape or they need more pruning.

  1. Move in your outdoor furniture.

Just like the trees in your yard, the outdoor furniture you have around can be equally dangerous. Make sure they are stored steadily to avoid future damage and mess.

  1. Put on outdoor and indoor mats.

It is very useful to place outdoor and indoor mats at home. It’s like a filtering system. During bad weather, everyone in your household can welcome so many unwanted things inside the house if you don’t have these mats around. Mud, leaves, germs, name it.

  1. Get rid of the clutter.

When storms strike, it can be quite alarming. When your family needs to retreat to temporary shelter in your home, clutter can get in the way. So before that happens, make sure to inspect and remove these clutter.

  1. Take flood preventive measures.

Water is expected to rise during rainy days. You have to prepare and initiate preventive steps to protect your home from flood. First, you may want to check if there is good drainage outside your house. Make sure the downspouts are pointed away from your house. Climb up your roof and sweep off leaves or other foreign objects. This will stop water from getting stuck in your roof and cause roof leaks.

It is ideal to have good preparations before severe weather strikes to avoid its devastating consequences. Have you thought of other things to prep up before the bad weather comes?

5 Easy and Clever Space-Saving Tips for Your Garage

Many of us will have to agree that the garage is more than just a residential parking space. It can be our own warehouse, workshop, and even a place to chill out.

As homeowners, we usually overlook the garage because we are too focused in every detail of beautifying our homes. But if everything is settled, it is never too late to give your garage the makeover it deserves.

To help you out, here are some brilliant ideas to maximize your garage space.

  1. Free up space by throwing away old, unused and broken things.

This is the first step in optimizing your garage space. You’ll get to know how much space can be saved by throwing away things that you don’t need anymore. Old and broken items just take up space and you have to understand that.

Every once in a while, you need to let go of things to give space for your new stuff. You can have scheduled decluttering it if that’s more effective.

  1. Empty walls? Good.

More often, you’ll see random things on the floor consuming so much space (and energy to look at). Really, it’s about time you hang those things up. You can install wall-rack systems and organizers to hold everything in place. It is best to hang items which are more frequently used.

  1. Invest in good storage containers.

Getting enough storage for all the clutter in your garage will clear up space and prevent you from always looking for lost items. It also adds to the safety of you and your family as harmful tools or substances are being properly kept.

Make sure to use clear plastic storage bins to be able to locate your things easily. You can also stack a mix of shelves. For the toxic items, it is ideal to have lockable storage.

  1. Got more overhead space? Perfect!

Install ceiling-mounted racks or lay down boards across the ceiling beams for additional storage. All those items that are used less frequently can occupy these spaces.

  1. Consider having adjustable workbench.

Folding furniture units are great space-savers. By having a folding workbench, you can have your garage both as a parking space and a workspace at the same time.

Did these tips inspire you to reorganize your garage? Have you thought of more ways to maximize space? Take the time to assess your humble garage and you’ll realize the amount of space you have been missing out.
