Cleaning your bathroom can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be.
At AAA Handyman Sydney, we are not only able to execute an aesthetic bathroom renovation service, but we also want residents in greater Sydney to be equipped with knowledge on how to maintain a modern, functional and clean bathroom.
With the right tools and a smart plan of attack, you can clean your bathroom in the most efficient way possible.
Here are some tips to help you get started:
Gather your supplies
Before you start cleaning, make sure you have all the necessary supplies. You will need a toilet brush, a scrub brush, a sponge or cloth, a bucket, and cleaning products such as disinfectant spray and toilet bowl cleaner. There are many different cleaning products available for bathrooms, but not all of them are created equal. Be sure to use products that are specifically designed for cleaning bathrooms.
Clear the clutter
Remove any items from your bathroom that are not essential for cleaning. This will give you more space to work and make it easier to clean.
Start with the toilet
The toilet is usually the dirtiest part of the bathroom, so it’s best to start there. Use a toilet bowl cleaner and a toilet brush to clean the inside of the bowl. Then use disinfectant spray and a cloth or sponge to clean the outside of the bowl, the seat, and the lid. Don’t forget about the toilet brush: After using your toilet brush, be sure to rinse it thoroughly with hot water and let it dry completely before putting it away.
Move on to the sink and countertop
Spray disinfectant cleaner on the sink and countertop and wipe them down with a cloth or sponge. Be sure to clean around the faucet and handles.
Clean the shower and tub
Spray disinfectant cleaner on the shower walls and tub and scrub them with a scrub brush or sponge. Rinse with water when finished. Use a squeegee to remove excess water from the walls and floor after each use. This will help prevent the growth of mould and mildew.
Finish with the floor
Sweep or vacuum the floor to remove any loose dirt or debris. Then mop or wipe down the floor with a disinfectant cleaner.
Additional tips in maintaining that invitingly clean bathroom look:
Clean your bathroom regularly
To keep your bathroom clean and fresh-smelling, it’s important to clean it regularly. Aim to clean your bathroom at least once a week. Clean your bathtub regularly: To keep your bathtub clean, use a non-abrasive cleaner and a soft cloth or sponge to wipe down the surface after each use.
Don’t forget about the grout
Grout is the material that fills the gaps between tiles in your bathroom. Over time, grout can become discoloured and dirty. To clean grout, mix baking soda and water to form a paste and apply it to the grout. Let it sit for a few minutes, then scrub with a brush and rinse with water.
Don’t forget about the details
Clean any mirrors or windows in your bathroom with glass cleaner. Also, be sure to wipe down any light fixtures or other accessories in your bathroom.
Keep your bathroom well-ventilated
Proper ventilation is important for preventing the growth of mould and mildew in your bathroom. Make sure your bathroom has a window or fan that can be used to circulate air.
