The Real Dirt on Canadians and their Homes

    Canada's cleaning professionals, MOLLY MAID offers up fun and filthy
    facts about the dirt in our homes and how to get rid of it

    TORONTO, March 19 /CNW/ - MOLLY MAID, one of the world's largest
residential cleaning companies, offers up the fun and filthy truth about the
germs that lurk on every surface in our homes. Many common household items are
favourite breeding grounds for bacteria and a major cause of illnesses that
affect us year-round. The good news is that cleaning your house thoroughly and
regularly will lower the risk of spreading germs and keep you healthier!

    Did you know that your kitchen sink is likely to be dirtier than your

    Did you know that carpets and rugs hold germs, dirt, skin cells, pet
    hair, fungi and dust mites? Tracking in dirt from the outside can easily
    add infectious germs to an already filthy mix.

    Did you know that bacteria can multiply a billion times overnight in a
    humid environment like the bathroom?

    MOLLY MAID reveals these simple tips to keep your home clean:

    Tip 1. Since the human body sheds 36 million skin cells every day, wash
    your sheets once a week in hot water and bleach.

    Tip 2. Don't wipe your dining table with a dirty kitchen sponge. Cross-
    contamination from meat or other food bacteria is an easy way to contract
    a virus.

    Tip 3. Regularly wipe all surfaces in your house as they may contain an
    array of invisible germs that could lead to stomach viruses and colds.

    Tip 4. Sweep or vacuum floors to collect crumbs and dirt before using a
    damp mop. Start washing the floor in the furthest corner of the room and
    work your way back towards the door.
