A Guide To Proper Kitchen Hygiene

File:2008 kitchen.JPGThere’s a lot that goes on in your kitchen; from food preparation to storage and waste disposal. It’s estimated that the average UK household throws away 7.2 million tonnes of food a year.

As much fun as you can have around the kitchen, there’s a lot of hidden dangers you’ve got to be wary of. Unhygienic spaces are a breeding ground for bacteria, which can cause anyone who comes into contact with them to become horribly ill. Food that’s left past its ‘use by’ date, or not stored or cooked properly, can act as a platform on which germs can rapidly grow. (more…)

A lot of life’s little tasks become infinitely more difficult when you suffer from allergies or asthma. With respiration issues, you have to be extremely careful about the products you use and what tasks you’re able to do around the home. Oven cleaning is certainly no different.

 

If you’re planning to clean the oven yourself, then you’ll have to think carefully about the type of agent you’re going to use. For instance, there are plenty of shop-bought products that come in the form of aerosols. This kind of airborne application can trigger a number of allergies, making it difficult to breathe – let alone complete the job.

 

As a result, it’s incredibly important that you take the time to choose a cleaning product that is going to cause you the least irritation. Liquids are often preferable, simply because they don’t have the same form of chemical reaction, nor are they airborne. This means that they are far less likely to cause any form of reaction.

 

These eco-friendly solutions are equally effective and are readily available from stores and specialist providers. They are also safer for others in the home too. This is simply because they won’t generally include any form of corrosive elements, meaning that any contact with the skin or enamel surfaces shouldn’t be as damaging. Although, it is still important that you rinse the affected area thoroughly if it should come into contact with your hand or arm.

 

If you are particularly sensitive to cleaning chemicals then you may be advised to use a protective face mask when removing dirt from your oven. This will prevent any fumes from reaching your throat and nose. However, if you are particularly susceptible to allergies, it’s important that you choose a mask that provides the most effective protection. You can never be too careful, so don’t take any unnecessary risks.

 

Another solution of course is to choose a professional cleaning service. We regularly provide help to people who simply aren’t able to clean their oven effectively due to health reasons.

So the most important thing to remember if you have allergies is to take care and ensure that you have the right type of cleaning product. As mentioned, aerosols can be hazardous, even to those without any form of respiratory issues or medical conditions. Make sure your skin is protected, to avoid any contact and steer clear of irritation. If you have a mask for filtering out air particles, this would also be incredibly useful just to protect your face and lungs. Otherwise, if required, we’re always on hand to provide expert assistance.
