Bathroom Cleaning and Maintenance Tips

Cleaning your bathroom might seem like a mean task, but if done routinely it will keep the bathroom not only clean but also germ free…

The bathroom is the most damp and humid place in the house, providing ideal conditions for mold, bacteria, viruses, etc to grow. A regular cleaning regime and measures will ensure that your bathroom remains a dry, clean and healthy space.

Paradise Sanitary ware offers a range of sanitary ware, in various shapes and designs that will match your conventional as well as contemporary bathroom designs. Following are a few tips to help you maintain your bathrooms and keep them sparkling clean.


General Maintenance Tips

The bathroom should be cleaned once a week and even more frequently if you are a large family. Fortunately, most bathrooms are made of materials that are easy to clean.

Make it a firm rule in your home to rinse out the tub or shower stall immediately after you use it. Spray water (use the shower head) on all interior surfaces, then lather soap onto a damp sponge, swish it around the tub or stall, and rinse.

To discourage mildew growth in the bathroom, increase air circulation and light to decrease moisture. Keep the exhaust fan on during a hot shower and for roughly 30 minutes after.

Always start cleaning the bathroom from the top and work your way to the floor. Begin your cleaning by dusting the ceiling and light fixtures so that the dust settles down and can then be washed off. The floor should be the last area to focus on.
Install and properly maintain dehumidifiers, vents and exhaust fans.

After handling soapy cleansers and cleaning solutions please make sure you wash your hands clean and wipe them dry.

Ensure you wipe the bathroom floor dry with the help of a wiper every time after a bath, to prevent slipping and falling.

Ensure that all electrical appliances in the bathroom, like geysers, lights and exhaust fans, are installed away from direct sources of water. (Handy cleaning materials that you should have to maintain a clean bathroom are a pair of rubber gloves, soft cleaning cloths, cleaning sponge, nylon scrub, an old not-in-use toothbrush, long-handled brush, a floor wiper, liquid soap, a plastic bottle with a spraying top, disinfectant, toilet and floor cleaners, etc. Also make sure you store these items away from children’s reach.)

You can use liquid cleansers available in the market to clean your sanitary ware. There are various solvents available that can be used to not only clean but also disinfect your sanitary ware. Keep a long handled brush and a nylon scrub handy. Always wear rubber gloves while using cleaning solutions and keep the cleansers out of children’s reach.


Toilets

You can use strong cleansers available in the market to clean the toilet bowl (Avoid using acids in any form. Acids are not only dangerous to handle but could also discolour the ceramic material).

Apply the cleaning solution on the insides of the toilet and let it remain for 15 to 20 minutes. Then slightly scrub with a long handled toilet scrubber and flush to clean. Do not forget to clean the outside of the toilet as well. (When using ready cleansers, make sure you read the ‘instructions/directions to use’ on the label.)

Do not use harsh chemical solvent to clean the plastic toilet seats as they might damage the material. Use a mild soapy solution and scrub with a soft scrub to avoid leaving scouring marks. Wash off the seat with an anti-septic solution to disinfect it.


Wash basin

The wash basin is the most frequently used sanitary ware in the bathroom (brushing teeth, shaving, washing hands and face, etc). It is important that it is kept clean at all times to insure it is germ-free. It is advisable to gently scrub it clean after every use, or at least once a day.

Readily available cleansers can be used, provided they are not harsh. Even soap solution works well, but would require some scrubbing. Using an anti-septic solution is a good idea. Make sure you clean the outside of the basin as well. (Avoid using chemical solutions while cleaning a wash basin made of glass.)


Tiles

Tile is known for its water resistance and easy cleaning. With the right maintenance routine, your tile floors, walls, and countertops will look great and last for years.

1. Basic Maintenance

Sweep or vacuum floors to remove any dust or debris before using any cleaning products. Damp-mop your tile floor at least once each week (more frequently for heavy traffic areas) to decrease wear and abrasion from grit and soil.

2. Glazed Tile

Clean regularly with an all-purpose, non-oil-based household cleaner that's compatible with cleaning grout joints. Use an everyday multipurpose spray cleaner to remove soap scum, hard water deposits, and mildew on wall tiles in your bath or shower.

3. Glazed Tile

Clean regularly with an all-purpose, non-oil-based household cleaner that's compatible with cleaning grout joints. Use an everyday multipurpose spray cleaner to remove soap scum, hard water deposits, and mildew on wall tiles in your bath or shower.

4. Matt Tile

Use concentrated tile cleaners that have a neutral pH for regular cleaning. These will safely remove grease, oils, and normal spills—just check to be sure the cleaner is intended for the application, use, and traffic level. Clean glass tile with any nonabrasive cleaner recommended for either glass or tile.

5. Tips for Preventing Damage

Test scouring powders and sealants on a small area before cleaning the full area. Use a sealer on grout joints shortly after installation and use products compatible with cleaning grout joints. After cleaning, rinse the entire area with clear water to remove any cleaning solution residue. Have any damaged or broken tile removed and replaced only by a qualified tile contractor.

6. Extra Protection

Invest in high-quality floor mats and protective pads under heavy furniture for an extra layer of protection to your tile floors. Place floor mats at entrances and exits—they collect and trap corrosive substances that can be tracked in, like dirt, sand, oil, grit, asphalt, or even driveway sealer. Placing mats in high-traffic areas—in front of vanities, kitchen sinks, and stoves—is an effective way to reduce tile wear.

7. What to Avoid

Any cleaners containing acid or bleach shouldn’t be used for routine maintenance. Avoid wax-based cleaners and oil-based detergents, and use sealants on grout joints only. Harsh cleaning aids like steel wool pads or any scouring pads containing metal shouldn’t be used on tile. Unglazed tile should not be cleaned with an agent that contains color.
