3. Underside Furniture

You always clean the floor your home that is visible. But you do not clean the underside of the furniture like bed or sofa on a regular basis. Go to the actual deep side under your furniture as this place would defiantly have a layer of dust.

Small spaces like under the fridge or inside the oven can collect lot amount of dust, dirt and even food. Clean the under area of your fridge by pulling your fridge out and use a cleaning brush and vacuum, then wipe down the walls, floor and all sides of the refrigerator.
