How to Clean a Bathroom
November 4th by VitroAdmin 0 0
Remove all the items that don’t belong in your bathroom. Take all other items out of the bathroom. This includes items that don’t belong in the bathroom, such as trash and remove everything that is standing on the floor.
Pour a bleach or another disinfectant into the toilet bowl. Pour a bleach or another disinfectant into the toilet bowl and put the toilet brush inside the toilet with the actual brush inside the hole. This will help to sanitize the brush and get dirt off it.
Sweep the floor. Start by sweeping the floor. (Alternatively, you can wait until everything else is clean before you sweep in order to make sure you get rid of the dust or other bits that fell on the floor while you were cleaning.)
Clean the walls, windows and/or ceiling. If you have mold on the ceiling start with spraying a water bleach/disinfectant solution on it and let it rest for a couple of minutes, do the same with the walls ( if they are tiles) or use another cleaning product. Clean the bathroom window on the in and outside. Go back to the ceiling and start scrubbing you will see that any dirt or mold easily come off. Rinse it carefully to avoid any stripes and dry it with a clean rag. Do the same with the walls.
Spray disinfectant product or apply scouring powder on the faucets. Be sure to use an appropriate product for it otherwise this could damage them. Test it out on a non-visible spot before you actually use it. Spray the product on any material that is made out of stainless steel. Let it work for a couple of minutes.
Clean the shower. Spray an appropriate cleaning product on the shower walls,and the shower head and let it rest for a couple of minutes. Spray cleansers made especially for getting rid of soap scum work very well on tubs that haven’t been cleaned in a while. For hard water areas that are prone to green and rust-colored stains, a cleanser made for eliminating calcium, lime and rust is probably what you need. Never use abrasive cleaners or green abrasive scrub pads or steel wool on porcelain fixtures, as they will quickly dull the finish. While you are waiting do the same with the tub.
Go back to the shower and scrub the walls,faucet and shower head, rinse well with the hottest water and or dry with a chamois, you can use the squeegee also to make them dryer. You can shine the faucet with a paper towel or a towel. Do the same thing for the tub.
Don’t forget the shower curtain; it is also prone to mildew. A solution of about 2/3 water, 1/3 bleach in a spray bottle (designated for this express purpose!) can be handy for getting rid of mildew spots. Or you can take it down and wash it in hot water with a small amount of soap and bleach.
Clean the sink and counter area. You may use whichever cleaning product you used on the tub, but use it sparingly as it is harder to rinse the soap off a counter. Scrub all the soap scum and tooth paste off, rinsing your sponge thoroughly as you go along. A toothbrush or cotton swabs can be handy for getting the junk out from between the tap and handles. Be sure never to clean the sink and counter area with the same rag or paper towel you used to clean the toilet. This can spread leftover disease-causing germs to your sink and counter area. To prevent this you can use a specific rag which you use to clean only the toilet.
Clean the toilet. Wipe the exterior of the toilet, starting with the flush handle so as not to re-contaminate it, with a cloth soaked in disinfectant cleaner. Don’t forget to use a cloth specially assigned for cleaning the toilet, or a paper towel (throw it away, don’t flush it). Scrub the bowl with a toilet brush and flush.
Mop or scrub the floor, starting with the farthest point from the door. Hot soapy bleach water will work best. Remember to rinse the floor with clean water to remove slippery soap residue. Be sure to get along the sides of your toilet bowl where it is anchored to the floor. This area is notoriously dirty. Don’t forget to clean the base boards or base molds these places usually accumulates a lot of dust.
Dispose of your mop water and throw away any dirty cloths and or sponges.
Place all the items back that you took out once the floor is dry.
