How To Properly Clean A Bathroom

Posted on October 19, 2022

Bathrooms tend to get full of germs and other grime very quickly, so you should always keep your Anaheim home’s bathroom clean. But there’s so much to clean that sometimes it can be hard to know where to start. 

How do you clean your bathroom in a way that guarantees everything is as clean as it could possibly be? Here are steps to take the next time you clean your bathroom.

1. Organize

Your first step should be to ensure everything is in the right place. Look at the items you have stored in your Anaheim home’s bathroom, and figure out the best place to put them. You might even want to temporarily move some of them out of the bathroom to make way for cleaning. Just do a general visual inspection and pick up everything that needs to be picked up.

2. Sweep and dust

Now you should get all loose dry debris out of the way. You might have a buildup of hair or dust starting to accumulate in your bathroom, and you should get rid of it before applying wet cleaners while it’s still easy to sweep. Make sure you dust the countertops, toilets, showers, and anywhere else, not just the floor.

3. Vacuum

Now it’s time to pick up any remaining loose debris. Run vacuums along the floor and use smaller vacuums for the countertops and other surfaces. You never know what may be hiding between your tile grout, so try to be thorough. Double check that the vacuum itself is clean before using it, too, or else you could just spread dirt around.

4. Disinfect

You should kill the germs directly before going after the more visible grime. Use disinfectants on any surface that tends to accumulate germs. This isn’t just the toilet – be sure to disinfect the sink and shower as well, as both of these can get very germy very fast. Also, disinfect the doorknobs and soap dispensers.

5. Use cleaning products

Now it’s time to bust out any all-purpose cleaners and go for all the surfaces in your bathroom. You might want to look into specialty cleaners for tougher stains and messes. If you plan to use multiple cleaning products, ensure they mix well and aren’t dangerous. Try to be as thorough as possible – get the mirrors, sinks, floors, tubs, toilets, and anything else.

6. Restock

Put back anything you removed from the bathroom, and check on your other supplies. Do you have toilet paper, shampoo, or hand soap? Is there enough body soap or conditioner in your shower? What else do you need in your Anaheim home’s bathroom? Head to the store if you find that you’re missing anything.

7. Deep clean professionally

Have your tiles deep cleaned at least once a year. If it’s been a while since you’ve had your bathroom professionally cleaned, it might be a good idea to hire a Anaheim cleaning service. A professional Anaheim tile cleaning is effective at making your bathroom as clean as possible without you needing to do anything.
