Top Tips for Dealing with Dirty Bathrooms


Bathrooms are one of the most difficult and challenging areas at home to deal with. Bathrooms have multiple components that are usually poorly ventilated. Because of the poor ventilation, moist is built up. Because of the build-up in moist, mould, bacteria and pests find the necessary nourishment to thrive in the environment.

Here are some of the commonly used tricks by Cleaning Services or Part Time Maids to deal with bathroom and toilet cleaning challenges.

Mould Gaps

The most difficult areas in the bathroom are the floor, walls, and tile gaps. If not cleaned regularly, these surface areas are prone to mould and fungi due to stagnant water and moist.

To deal with mould and fungi in these areas, simply apply 1:5 diluted bleach to water to these areas, wait for 1-2 hours, and wipe with a toothbrush or a scouring pad. This method can also be used if you need to clean the kitchen floors as well.

For the tiles, wipe the surfaces of the tiles in a circular fashion, then rinse with water.

Recommendation: After using the bathroom every night, you should try to wipe away water stains to prevent water stains from staying in the tiles for a long time, which helps prevent mould.

Sinks and Washbasins

Dip a thin scouring pad with detergent and wipe the wash basin in a circular motion. If the plastic edge of the wash basin has black spots due to mouldy due to stagnant water, you can wear rubber gloves then a damp cotton wipe with a small amount of bleach, spread it on the mouldy area, and wash it after about 2 hours.

Reminder: Long-term use of decontamination powder or liquid decontamination powder will affect the surface finish and service life of the basin. The decontamination powder is also not easily to dissolve in water, it may cause the sewer pipe to block.

Keeping the Bathroom Dry

Tips: What can you do to keep the bathroom dry? After taking a bath on weekdays, use a scouring pad to moisten the bathroom walls and floor with a proper amount of detergent. Rinse it then use a wiper to wipe away the water stains. Turn on the exhaust fan for at least 1 hour to help keep the bathroom dry.

If you don’t have time to clean the bathroom thoroughly after taking a shower, you can wash the dirt on the walls and floor with hot water first, and then use a wiper tool to wipe away the water stains, which will help keep the bathroom dry. During the waiting period, clean and tidy other parts of the home, such as the living room and bedroom. First remove the unnecessary sundries. If you buy the items that are not used or not frequently used, they can be discarded decisively; the ones that are still in clean state can be donated.
