4 bathroom cleaning and maintenance tips
After months with working with bathroom contractors to achieve the perfect space, you might be excited to finish renovations and start enjoying your investment. However, one key fact that you shouldn’t forget is that everything from acrylic bathtubs to sinks need regular maintenance in order to last for an extended period of time. Even if you aren’t the type of person who needs to see mirrors shine, cleaning is critical to keeping everything operating efficiently for longer.
That being said, there’s no better time to take up a bathroom cleaning and maintenance routine than after a renovation. Whether you’re used to scrubbing toilets after your family or you’re new to it, here are some tips that can make the chore easier.
1. Keep your showerhead intact
To ensure that calcium deposits don’t interrupt the flow of water in your new shower, it’s critical to keep a close eye on your showerhead, especially after extensive use. Calcium deposits can build up and make it challenging for water to flow. That being said, one easy way to clean your showerhead regularly is by removing it and soaking it in white vinegar
, according to Better Homes and Gardens magazine. The vinegar will make it easy to scrub away the debris after it’s been soaking for a couple of hours. Best of all, this is a natural way to disinfect and clean the item.
2. Invest in a squeegee
A good, reliable squeegee can come in handy when you’re cleaning your bathroom, according to Martha Stewart Living magazine. Keep one nearby in your bathroom to tackle unsightly streak marks on your mirror or build-up around your bathtub – you’ll thank yourself later! Just don’t forget to replace it every week or so to prevent the bacteria from developing.
3. Turn it into a habit
Just a minute or two a day can go a long way when it comes to maintaining your bathroom. Wiping down your shower and areas around your sink can not only make the space look better, but keep debris from caking and becoming tougher to remove. If you live with a large family, ask them to pitch in and put forth an effort into keeping your newly remodeled bathroom sparkling.
4. Spray down your tub daily
The shower is one of the easiest places for bacteria and mold to grow. Not to mention, soap scum can be downright unsightly! To make sure that you never have to deal with this problem, spray down your tub and shower with a disinfectant or cleaning solution daily, then rinse it away. These days, there are many no-scrub products on the market that can allow you to spray and go – no bending over and hurting your back to clean your shower.
By taking these tips into account, you can keep your bathroom looking like new for longer.
