Bathroom Cleaning Checklist

That time has come once again – you have to clean your bathroom. It’s reasonable to say that bathroom cleaning is probably the least favorite part of the home cleaning for a vast majority of people.

Still, it needs to be done, and there’s no way around it. There is, however, a way to simplify and expedite your cleaning.

Cleaning professionals at Mulberry Maids share how their cleaners approach bathroom cleaning and share some tips.

So, if you want to clean your bathroom as quickly and effectively as a professional, follow these basic tips.

Make Sure You Have All the Supplies You Need

You’ve cleaned your bathroom before, you generally know what you will need; some cleaning products, gloves, mops, sponges, the whole thing. If you are being extra careful, you can include a mask and even goggles to this, but that part is up to you.

The reason why you want to account for all the things you will need well before you start is to ensure that you will be able to work without interruptions.

If not, you might have to stop in the middle of cleaning your bathroom to go to the store and get a cleaning product. That means taking a shower, changing into different clothes, driving to the store and back.

Optimistically, that’s a half an hour break. Do you have the mental fortitude to go back to cleaning? Most people wouldn’t. Prepare everything beforehand, and you will spend less time in the bathroom cleaning.

Prepare Yourself Mentally

As mentioned before, most people don’t like cleaning the bathroom. So, when the time comes to do it, you need to give yourself a proper mental motivation.

Tell yourself in advance that you will finish the task in a certain amount of time, and try to keep up with the timeline you set up.

If it helps you, play some music or an audiobook which can distract you and help pass the time quicker.

Aerate the Bathroom

Whether we like it or not, the most effective cleaning products are strong chemicals which produce some fairly strong and sometimes toxic fumes (hence the face mask as optional safety equipment).

That means that your bathroom will pretty soon smell quite strongly and if you don’t ventilate it properly, it will certainly make you noxious if you spend too much time inside.

Make sure that the door is always open, and if you have a window in your bathroom, prop it open, too. No matter how cold it is outside, it is far preferable to the nasty smell of chemicals.

Start with Bathroom Walls

If you are not sure where to start, professional home cleaners will always tell you to start from the top and work your way down.

This way, you won’t have to do the same job twice and you will spend less time cleaning.

The first thing on your list should be the bathroom walls and other large surfaces, like your bath or shower.

Another hint from cleaning pros is to use a squeegee to clean large flat surfaces such as your walls, the mirror, and your shower.

Look for Mold

Bathrooms tend to be a bit damper than the rest of your home, with the possible exclusion of your basement, that is simply the nature of the room.

However, damp and dark places are the favorite place of mold, especially the black mold. The underside of your toilet, the back side of your sink, and similar places offer both of these factors, and if not cleaned regularly might be a welcome home to an unwelcome pest that is mold.

Luckily, it is fairly easy to get rid of mold in the bathroom, since most surfaces there are flat and sleek, and the mold has nowhere to hide.

Try out these bathroom cleaning tips and see whether they work for you and whether they make your bathroom cleaning just a little bit easier and more comfortable.
