Aside from a place to throw out your garbage, you may not often think about your trash can. But did you know that it can be home to some serious hidden dangers? Mr. Clean Can is here to help you learn more about the dangers in your trash can and explore why professional cleaning is so crucial in keeping those pesky dangers away.
What’s That Smell?
We all know that trash is smelly, especially when it’s full of leftovers and food you found in the back of your fridge that’s been there for who knows how long. But did you know that the foul odor can be more than just a reason to pinch your nose when you take it out? It can attract pests like flies, rats, and other critters.
These unwelcome visitors not only spread diseases, but can also cause damage to your property. When you have your cans professionally cleaned, we will make sure that your trash can is properly deodorized, reducing the risk of infestations and keeping your cans fresh.
The Invisible Threats: Bacteria
Believe it or not, your trash can is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria. The combination of organic waste, moisture, and warm temperatures creates a perfect environment for bacteria to multiply quickly. These bacteria can lead to various health issues, including stomach ailments, respiratory infections, and skin irritations.
Hiring someone to regularly clean your cans will ensure that your trash can is sanitized and eliminate these invisible, dangerous threats to you and your household.
The Dangers of Mold & Mildew
Another lurking danger in your trash can is the growth of mold and mildew. When food scraps and other organic materials decompose, they release moisture, which creates an ideal home for these fungi.
Breathing in mold spores can trigger allergies, worsen asthma symptoms, and even cause respiratory problems in some. Professional can cleaning not only removes existing mold and mildew, but also prevents them from coming back, keeping you and your family safe & healthy!
Did you know that dirty trash cans can easily cause cross-contamination? When germs and bacteria from your trash can come into contact with your hands or other surfaces, they can easily spread to other areas of your home or workplace. This can lead to the rapid spread of illnesses among your family members or colleagues.
By relying on professional can cleaning services, you can rest easy knowing that your trash can is thoroughly disinfected, lowering the risk of cross-contamination.
Trash cans aren’t just dangerous for our health; they also have an environmental impact. Overflowing and improperly maintained trash cans can attract wildlife, disrupt ecosystems, and contaminate soil and water sources.
Having your trash can professionally cleaned helps prevent all of these things, and helps to keep our environment safe.
