How to Deep Clean Your Bathroom

by Nathan Ripley - June 6, 2019

As one of the top home cleaning services in San Diego, we know that one of the biggest problem areas is the bathroom. Getting that space looking as good as new, with gleaming tiles and sparkling taps, can be quite difficult. You often must deal with the marks left by shower steam and if you have porcelain sinks and enamel baths these can quickly get marked by soap and steam.

Here are some simple cleaning tips to help you keep your bathroom looking great:

De-gunge the Shower Head

Your showerhead can get clogged up with lime scale and become less efficient over time. To get rid of this you simply need to unscrew it, soak the head in some white vinegar overnight and you’ll find it looks as good as new in the morning.

Put the Shower Curtains in the Washing Machine

If you have a shower curtain and want to make sure that it’s hygienically clean, take it off the rail, and pop it in the washing machine with a couple of towels. This is great if you have mildew gathering on the bottoms of the curtains. If you have a shower mat it can go in at the same time.

Make those tiles gleam

Tiles can start to look dull and dirty in no time at all so giving them a steam clean or using a good cleaning product on them is perfect. The grout often gets discolored and you should be looking to top this up every 6 to 12 months to help keep it looking good. You can also use a brush dipped in bleach to clean the grout area. If you want to be a little greener, a solution of vinegar and water is just as good. Make sure you ventilate the area well while you clean.

Get sparkling taps

If you have chrome taps they can become dull and discolored over time. Adding a little toothpaste to the metal areas and then giving it a good buff can bring up the shine again. If you’ve got a build of lime scale, a little vinegar and water does the trick to get rid of it. Lemon works as well and smells much nicer.

Cleaning the Toilet

One area where germs and bacteria do gather, obviously, is around the toilet. Don’t just clean around the pan, but make sure you give the sides and the back a good going over regularly to maintain good hygiene standards. Keeping up with this means that your bathroom stays smelling and looking fresh all the time.

Working in and around the San Diego area, we find that most households want to keep their bathroom as spotlessly clean as possible. With all that steam and people going in an out it can be quite difficult to keep up though. Developing a good cleaning routine helps and the more regularly you do it the better you can maintain this area of your home and keep it looking great.
