How to Clean Your Bathroom: What the Professional Cleaners Recommend

February 19, 2015 / admin

More than just a place to sanitise ourselves, bathrooms are comfort zones where we can simply be ourselves and do the things we love doing. This is one of the reasons why bathrooms are alternately called “restrooms”.   But this is only possible if our bathrooms are squeaky clean, as if they were professionally maintained. So RPC Cleaning Service explain how to clean your bathroom – what the professional cleaners recommend!

Whether these bathrooms are at our homes or at the offices, having the bathrooms cleaned by professionals at least twice a year is ideal.  Plus, there are many ways to clean the bathroom just like a pro.

How often should the bathroom be cleaned? Once or twice a week is good enough for residential units while it is recommended for bathrooms in commercial establishments to be cleaned at least once or twice a day.

The Cleaning Routine 

“Up to the ceiling, down to floor. Right to the window, left to door…” Following this line means that no part of the bathroom should be skipped by the brush and broom.

1. It is usually the floor area that gets noticed while cleaning. Don’t forget to look up to remove the cobwebs from the ceiling.

2. Dust the cabinets, shelves and other fixtures.

3. Along with the fallen cobwebs, sweep or mop away the fallen hairs and dirt on the floor. Empty the rubbish bin too.

4. Disinfect the sink, toilet bowl and the bath. Remove soap scum and other accumulated dirt.

5. Remove damp and dirty rugs before they begin to smell and cause the spread of germs. Replace them with dry ones.

6. Pay attention to the tiles, corners and hard to reach areas. You will need a disinfectant and grout cleaner for this task. The longer the build-up is allowed to stay, the more difficult it will be to remove them.  Stronger cleaning agents might be needed to remove solidified build-ups. However, when working with strong or poisonous substances, always ensure that there is enough ventilation in the room so that you don’t inhale the toxins.

7. Mop away excess water on the floor or at least put a “wet floor” sign to prevent accidents especially in commercial areas.  Alternately, open the window or door or turn on the exhaust fan to dry up wet surfaces faster.

Dressing for the Job 

Professional cleaners wear comfortable and washable clothes that are intended for the job. Appropriate shoes, the ones that adopt well to wet surfaces are extremely important.  We don’t want you or your cleaning crew to slip over on a wet floor while on the job.  Remember your gloves and eye protectors, too.

Tools for the Job 

Professionals use appropriate tools – brushes, mops, and scrubbing cloth – to do the job right. There is no one tool-does-it-all gadget in cleaning bathrooms.

You should be equipped with the right cleaning substances as well. There are all-natural cleaning products available on the market today that will not harm your health and the environment.

Put all of your cleaning tools and materials in a bucket or cleaning tray, so that you don’t waste time and energy going to and fro to get all that you need.

If you can afford it, have your bathroom checked by cleaning professionals.  Moreover, consult them about which materials or cleaning agents are suitable for your kind of bathroom.
