The bathroom is a part of the house that is guaranteed to be used several times a day. And since it’s a place where the environmental conditions are going to be different to those in the rest of your house, it’s a special case when it comes to keeping it clean. After all, it gets hot and steamy every time you have a shower or run a bath, and this has an effect on the fixtures and fittings in the room. You, need to do everything you can to keep it clean and hygienic day after day. So we thought we would put together a few bathroom cleaning tips to help you keep your bathroom looking and feeling great.
Simply follow the routine:
Wipe your bathroom sink once a week
This essential part of the bathroom gets regular use, from everyone washing their hands after going to the loo, splashing your face after shaving or when you’re brushing your teeth. So don’t let dirt and grime build up here if you want to stay clean and healthy and wipe down your sink at least once a week. It only takes a minute so it’s no major drain on your time, which means there’s really no excuse for not doing it.
Use an extractor fan
An extractor fan is crucial if you want to stop mould and mildew building up in your bathroom, as it sucks out all the steam from your bath or shower unit and helps to keep moisture at a minimum. Many extractor fans automatically stay on for a few minutes after you’ve turned it off to make sure the moisture doesn’t linger, but if yours doesn’t, then make a point of leaving it switched on for a short time.
Wipe down surfaces after a bath or shower
Again, to stop moisture seeping into awkward areas, it really helps to make sure all the hard surfaces, from tiles to shower screens, are properly wiped down after the bath or shower has been used.
Give the bathroom a once-over every week
We’d recommend that a bathroom needs a fairly thorough clean about once a week, so get out the bathroom cleaner and spray your bathtub and tiled walls and give it a good spray and wipe. The bathroom cleaner will really help to get rid of any dirt that has built up in certain areas over the last few days.
Use bleach when necessary
Don’t be afraid of using a tougher cleaning agent if you really need to. For instance, if mildew builds up on the shower head, then use a proper mildew remover or some bleach so you can get rid of it properly.
Bring in a professional cleaning service
If cleaning the bathroom on a regular basis is too much for you, there’s always the option of hiring professional cleaners to do the job instead. Since they will be applying their specialist knowledge and experience, as well as using professional equipment, you can be confident they will do a more thorough job than you could ever manage on your own.
