Speaking about the little nooks and crannies, these are often the areas the collect the most dirt or gather mould and dust.

The bathroom is the worst culprit because of all of the moisture that gathers in this space. Make sure that once you are done showering or bathing, you dry every surface. Also clean your shower head regularly, wipe down the taps and scrub the bathroom tiles.
