Guest Post Bathroom Cleaning After A Renovation
As well as a place to freshen up, the bathroom is also often used a place to relax for a while and forget about the dynamic everyday life. That is why many people try to give their bathrooms the best look in order to make them extremely comfortable and pleasant to spend time in. They invest in nice designs and renovate them, turning their bathrooms into a beautiful part of the house. However, after being renovated, every bathroom becomes a challenge to clean, especially if there has been a lot of construction work done. In such cases, there is a lot of dirt, dust and grout haze, all of which might appear extremely hard to remove sometimes. The good news is that nothing is impossible and, having the proper planning and right techniques, cleaning your bathroom after the process of renovation will be carried out much more easily and effectively than expected. Here are our suggestions on how to deep clean your bathroom after renovating it and quickly put it back in use.
After remodelling your bathroom, there are usually layers of dust that have to be removed from the area before you continue with the next steps to clean your bathroom. To clean dust, it’s not a good idea to sweep it, for the fact that in this way you won’t remove it but rather just spread it in the air and then it will fall back on the floor again. A better idea is to use a vacuum machine to trap the dust and thus get rid of it. Another useful idea is to dampen a mop and wipe the dust away. The moisture of the mop will also trap the dust instead of spread it into the air. To remove dust from the walls of your bathroom, use a wet towel and wipe it away. Then wash the entire bathroom, using the remote shower, as you firstly clean the tiles with a sponge and soap or another detergent, and then rinse with warm water.
One of the most important things you have to consider after having your bathroom renovated, is to improve the quality of air in the area. Since bathrooms have a high level of moisture, and adding a lot of dust after the process of remodelling, the air quality might significantly decrease. After remodelling, dust might be stuck in the vents, which only helps making the air worse. That’s why it’s important to check your bathroom vents and clean them. If you can’t clean them by yourself it is good to hire a professional cleaning company like Deluxe Flat Cleaners to do that job for you. Or, if necessary, replace them with new once, in case there are build-ups of dirt trapped there.
Grout haze are the white spots left on the tiles after grouting the area. Grout haze is usually hard to remove and can’t be simply wiped off. To remove grout haze, start by using a sponge, dampened in a warm detergent solution. The heat will soften the haze and make it a bit easier to break. Then use the blunt side of a knife to scrub to scrape the haze. You can use a haze cleaner, which you can most probably find in your local store. However, if you want to go a bit more natural, you can make a solution of one part white vinegar and baking soda each and two parts water.
To disinfect the entire bathroom, clean every item separately, paying attention to the sink, tap, mirrors, tub and windows. Don’t forget to wash the shower curtains and the door, including its handle. You can use the commercial cleaning product you usually clean the bathroom with or make another portion of the same white vinegar-baking soda solution if you want to try a greener method. Freshen up the smell of the bathroom as you open the windows and let fresh air come in. Then you can use a solution of lemon grass essential oil mixed with water in a spray water to give the bathroom a great scent.
