Deep Cleaning Your Rental Home’s Bathrooms

Cleaning Supplies as the Focal Point of a Bathroom in a Boston Rental HomeOne of the most regarded parts of first transferring into a new home is how clean everything is. A remarkable landlord will see to it that each room of the home, from the kitchen to the bathrooms, have been thoroughly cleaned before move-in day. But after a long period of time and repeated use, even bathrooms that are withheld organized from week to week will entail a good deep cleaning. To make sure that your rental home’s bathrooms sanitary and in good condition, you must accomplish some deep cleaning tasks every few months to ensure that your bathrooms are kept sparkling clean.

Most likely, one of the scopes that will require deep cleaning the most is your tub, shower, and showerhead. Each of these will have to be deep cleaned regularly to remove residue buildup and water spots. One of the coolest ways to disinfect any bathroom surface is by mixing a few drops of white vinegar with a cup of baking soda to make a paste. Spread the mixture over the tub or shower door and let sit for an hour, then wipe and rinse clean. For shower walls, try covering them with an all-purpose cleaner and then run the hot water until the shower fills with steam. Close the shower door and let the cleaner sit for about twenty minutes, then wipe down with a wet sponge or cloth.

Vinegar works perfectly on sinks and showerheads as well. To clean a sink with vinegar, simply pour out a small amount, scrub, and flush with hot water. To clean a showerhead with white vinegar, fill a bag with it and then place the bag over the showerhead so that the entire fixture is soaking in the vinegar. Secure with a rubber band or twist-tie and let sit overnight. The next morning, remove the bag and wipe the showerhead clean.

One more part of the bathroom that you must deep clean in a systematic way is the toilet. While there are countless toilet cleaners on the market, the most fascinating approach to really deep clean a toilet is by using baking soda. Just pour a cup of baking soda into the toilet bowl and let sit for about five minutes. Brush thoroughly with a toilet brush and then flush to rinse.

Categorically, if your rental home’s bathroom has tile, you will need to deep clean the grout regularly to avoid bacteria growth. Bleach and a grout brush are the better methods to lighten discolored grout lines and kill anything trying to grow between your tile. To genuinely keep grout watertight, reseal it every six months or so to keep moisture and bacteria out. Bleach can also be used to confront any mold growing in windowsills or other areas. Simply mix one part bleach with two parts water and scrub any mold spots with a sponge.

Deep cleaning a bathroom doesn’t have to put away a significant amount of time and energy; however, it is critical to bear in mind to execute it regularly. Once you appreciate how to deep clean a bathroom the way the specialists do it, you can readily rest on top of this pivotal conservation duty.
