Cleaning the home can also avoid the spreading of germs as well as removing dirt and dust. However, according to professional cleaner Dani Palikarova, there is one item in the home which is often over cleaned: the bathroom mirror. The Fantastic Services expert warned that cleaning a bathroom mirror too often can result in it becoming damaged.
Dani said: “Bathroom mirrors are constantly exposed to moisture which causes damage over time to the silver backing.
“That’s the reason black spots and darkened edges appear over time.”
Bathroom mirrors can become dirty very easily and fingerprints and smears can build up over time.
This means a lot of people clean them almost everyday, but the expert recommended cleaning a mirror just once a week.

With millions of fibres, microfibre cloths help to lift dirt and bacteria and can be used wet or dry.
When it comes to cleaning carpets, the expert said that carpets will not last long if they are not looked after properly.
Vacuuming weekly is advised and steam cleaning should be limited to twice a year.
Dani said: “Some people steam clean their carpets after every stain or party, which is not the best idea.
“It leads to discolouration, weird-looking patches and snags.”
