Things Around the House You Forget to CleanWith your family spending time indoors from the heat, it’s important that your home is clean and sanitized to keep everyone healthy during this fun and busy time of year. While you should keep up with your normal cleaning routine, make sure that you don’t forget to clean and sanitize these things in your home!

And of course, if you ever need anything cleaned or if you’re looking for a sanitizing service in Maple Grove, MN, you know who to call...CJ’s Chem-Dry!


You and your family touch doorknobs multiple times a day, so it’s no wonder why they get so dirty! Bacteria can stay alive on these metal surfaces for up to 8 hours, so it’s important to clean your doorknobs with a disinfectant every few days.

Trash Can

Your trash can is inevitably one of the dirtiest items in your home — it does hold all of your trash! Every month, wipe down the inside and outside of your trash can to keep it free from bacteria. Be sure to use high-quality trash can liners or bags that effectively contain liquids and other materials that may spill.


While vacuuming your carpets once or twice a week helps keep the plushness and freshness of your carpet, your carpet needs to be deep-cleaned to extract all the bacteria and contaminants embedded in the carpet’s fibers. Most carpet manufacturer’s warranty advises that you must have your carpets cleaned once every 12 to 18 months. However, if you have kids or pets, your carpets need about twice a year.

CJ’s Chem-Dry offers affordable and effective carpet cleaning in Blaine, Anoka, Dayton, Coon Rapids, and the surrounding area. Our carpet cleaning service removes 98.1% of allergens* (pet dander and dust allergens) and 89% of airborne bacteria* in the home.


The inside of your microwave contains so much grease and oil from the many foods you have heated up over time. And the outside of your microwave, particularly the touchpad, holds a ton of bacteria from your fingers. Make sure to use soap and water to clean your microwave weekly.

Vacuum Filter 

You are probably already aware of how dirty your vacuum filter gets, but are you actually cleaning it? Many people only clean out the vacuum collector and don’t even touch the filter. Each vacuum model is unique, so check the model’s instructions on how to clean or replace the filter.
