Bathroom cleaning is probably not one of the top favorite activities among people after all, there are very few things more unpleasant than a filthy bathroom. It is one of the most important things that needs to be done. It is important that you thoroughly tackle all the surfaces when it’s time to clean the bathroom which will enable you in keeping the bathroom tidy at all given times. With routine maintenance, it will also not take that long the next time you clean.
Here’s a bathroom cleaning checklist from home cleaning Overland Park professionals which can be of help to you:
Preparation before Clean-up– It is important that you plan your bathroom clean in advance. Set a scheduled day and time for that and stick to it. Neatly fold and hang towels and put the bathmat in the washing machine. Also, pull the shower curtain to one side, so you have no problem reaching all the surfaces in the shower. When using strong cleaning products, do change into clothes that you don’t mind being damaged or stained. Apart from keeping shower scrubs and grout cleaner off clothes, also keep them off your toiletries. Clear the shower of toothbrushes, toothpaste, loofas, shampoos and so forth which you can set on a clean towel on the bathroom floor.
Tub Scrubbing– Although bathtubs are great for soaking, but long baths have a tendency to leave unsightly rings around the tub.
Prior to pulling out the scrub brush and scouring agents, check what is your tub made of. While porcelain tubs are fairly resilient, enamel and acrylic (or plastic) tubs can fade or get scratched if you use overly harsh or acidic chemicals. It is better to test a spot on the bathtub first to rule out potential stains or damage.
Toilet- Of course, you’ll need a toilet brush and toilet cleaner over here. Do wear gloves and get under the rim of the toilet so that you get all of the fun things growing under there out. Make sure to thoroughly wash down every side of your toilet seat using a general cleaner. Finally, wipe the toilet tank, lid and sides.
Sink- Like the tub, you need to see what kind of material your sink is made of prior to deciding on the cleaner. Also, pull the stopper out and give it a good wipe down.
Clean the Shower– You’ll need to be prepared to cleaning the following to make your shower shine:
- Shower walls, floors and doors– Make a scum remover using a solution of ¼ cup vinegar and ¾ cup water. Mix the liquids in a microwave-safe bowl, and heat before loading the solution into a spray bottle. Spray your shower walls, floor and door with the mixture and let that sit for about 3 minutes. Then, wipe everything down. Be careful though, you should never use vinegar on stone floors.
- Showerheads– Getting rid of mineral deposits and gunk is as easy as soaking the fixture overnight in white vinegar. Just mix one-part vinegar and one-part water in a plastic sandwich bag. Secure that to the shower head with a rubber band, and you’re set.
Others– After you are done with cleaning the major parts of the bathrooms, move on and focus on the room’s smaller components like floors, mirrors, grout, fixtures, etc.
Remember, it is important to maintain a regular schedule to keep your bathroom clean. Ideally, you should scrub the bathroom once a week. But prior to starting to scrub, check all your products—from grout cleaner to mildew remover—to make sure they’re safe for the surfaces you’re working on. Also, be aware of the household products that are dangerous when mixed.
