Keeping Your Bathroom Clean At All Times

The bathroom is one of the most important parts of a house and must always be kept clean and hygienic. This can best be achieved by rigorous cleaning, on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis. The frequency and intensity of cleaning should be determined by the intensity of usage.

Daily Cleaning

It is of the utmost importance that you thoroughly clean a bathroom after each use. Keep in mind not every usage requires a full cleaning but the amount of TLC a bathroom receives after a single use should determine what gets cleaned. Toilets, sinks, and tubs absorb the most abuse in their usage and neglecting these after using them can lead to problems later. A simple scrub, wipe down, and/or rinse is all that's needed after a single use. A bathroom's walls on the other hand require more care. They tend to be sensitive to stains that must be removed before they stick. These can be often be removed with a squeegee and a solution made of vinegar and ammonia. It is of the utmost importance that you also keep a small vacuum in the bathroom in front of the bathroom floor, especially if the bathroom in question is carpeted. If the bathroom is shared, it is advisable to encourage each family member to clean up after themselves, especially when it comes to shower enclosures and toilets.

Weekly Routine Cleaning

Apart from the daily cleaning of a bathroom, it is recommended that you also perform a thorough weekly cleaning. In this phase, mix the daily routine, i.e. compress the walls and vacuum the floor, plus thoroughly clean the bath / shower, the surfaces and the toilet. The floor should be cleaned weekly without exception. If you are usually a busy person, you should consider hiring a professional maid or house cleaner for a professional touch and great end results.

Monthly thorough cleaning of the bathroom

Although you may have adhered to the daily and weekly cleaning schedules, it is very important to also arrange a major overhaul type of monthly cleaning for your bathrooms. Every month you'll want to spend some time organizing your cabinets and cupboards in your bathrooms. All types of bathroom related and unrelated items can end up in medicine cabinets, drawers, and cabinets. Organizing them ensures that there is order in the bathroom and that things stay clean and ready to use.

Annual Intensive Cleaning

If you've adhered to the daily, weekly and monthly cleaning of your bathroom but notice that you're bathroom's could still use something more, an annual cleaning may be in order.  During an annual cleaning, things like blinds and shutters should be cleaned and inspected for decay. Fans should be disassembled and cleaned as well to ensure they remain in proper working order.  If you have plastic shower curtains, they should be taken down and put through a wash/dry cycle. Those with mold, cracks, or other types of wear and tear should be replaced. Sinks and toilets should be inspected so as to ensure they do not need replacement parts. Even the flooring in a bathroom should be considered for either repair or replacement on an annual basis.

By adhering to routine bathroom cleaning you are guaranteeing yourself a clean and hygienic bathroom all year round. Perhaps most importantly; if you do not have the time to clean your bathrooms regularly or lack the drive to do so, there are always maid services you can consider. The vast majority are inexpensive and offer fantastic and friendly services.
