Keeping Your Bathroom Spic and Span in 2017

Keeping Your Bathroom Spic and Span in 2017It doesn’t need to be emphasized that apart from the kitchen, the bathroom is one area in your home that is prone to picking up inordinate grime and dust in a short span of time. Understandably enough, since cleaning the bathroom space is a back-breaking task most homeowners keep on postponing the job whenever a home cleaning project is due. Since getting rid of all the filth that accumulates in the tiles, grouts, windows, cabinets, and other areas of the bathroom can be an arduous activity, couples or roommates take turns in accomplishing the job.

What most householders find exasperating is the fact that a house cleaning scheme that invariably involves rinsing out the bathroom becomes overdue sooner than they’d like it.
However, cleaning up the washroom area is a necessary evil that cannot be deferred indefinitely from the standpoint of health. Following are some practical and easy-to-follow tips that you can abide by to keep your bathroom spic and span without stressing out yourself.

1. Keeping your bathroom airy and free from moisture

The bathroom is an area in your home that is susceptible to becoming damp faster than other areas simply because of the purpose or purposes for which space is used. Moisture takes a heavy toll on your bathroom (as far as its cleanliness is concerned), causing mildew or moss formation, staining the grouts, leaving behind musty odors and water spots. So, moisture is evidently the biggest hurdle that can disrupt any house cleaning or bathroom washing project. Carry out the ensuing steps to keep moisture at bay in the washroom.

  • Take advantage of water repellants-Water droplets left behind on the soap, shower, tiles, and other areas that don’t drain away immediately lead to the buildup of moisture. The best way to tackle this issue is to take advantage of the same water repellents that you use on your car’s windshields.
  • Get into the habit of using a bathroom squeegee-You might already be making the most of a shower or bathroom squeegee following a bath or shower. In case you’re not, you should cultivate the habit of using one regularly after taking a shower. Scrub clean the tub, shower glass door, walls, floor tiles, walls, and the shower head with the squeegee to check mildew or bacterial growth.
  • Switch on exhaust fan during or after a bath-Turning the exhaust fan before you step into the shower and letting it run for a short while after you’ve emerged from the bathroom will keep dampness from setting in.
  • Pull shower curtains close for fast drying-After you’re through with your bathing, ensure to pull the curtains of the shower so that the accumulated water drops evaporates quickly.p

2. De-clutter to keep the spaces clean and tidy

You know how untidy and messy your study or living room looks when the surroundings are cluttered with objects or articles. No wonder then, the bathroom too will appear disorganized and muddled, if the medicine chest, cabinets, drawers, and shelves are overflowing with items that are long past their use-by dates. Just get rid of the unnecessary clutter and clean up the spaces to restore the original cleanliness or tidiness of the areas.

3. Stick to your schedule

There’s no gainsaying the fact that the home cleaning dates you’ve marked on the almanac or calendar add an artistic touch to it. The million dollar question is whether you’re abiding by the schedule in letter and spirit. Cleaning the bathroom spaces once weekly spares you from the grueling labor if you tidy up the spaces after a long interval.

4. Engage cleaning services occasionally

Using the services of a professional cleaning agency once yearly is perfectly all right as the firm will have the resources and the personnel to complete a bathroom cleaning job with greater perfection.
