I spend a lot of time at home doing odds and ends.
I like to clean my house about once a week from top to bottom.
I first vacuum the floors of all of the sand that is brought in from the beach. Then I mop all of the floors because we track a lot of bad stuff in from the streets if we forget to remove our shoes. There are a lot of dogs in this town so you can imagine what gets onto the bottom of your shoes after a long walk. It is not very pleasant. I try to make sure the air quality in this place is good and have a very good HEPA filter that removes most of the things in the air that makes me sneeze. The problem is when we track bacteria in with our shoes, the best air filter systems in the world won’t remove that. I think it’s a good idea to tell everyone to remove their shoes before coming into your house. If you are serious about having good indoor air quality, you should also be serious about having a clean floor because they can cause just as many problems as a bad air filter. I also like to clean all of the windows in the house each week and make them nice and shiny for the sun to come in and light up the house. We even put a furnace filter on our heater to keep any dust from coming out of it.
