TIPS FOR MAINTAINING YOUR BATHROOM – If you have recently remodeled your bathroom then you will be fully aware of the expense involved. Creating a good quality bathroom, of any size, can be expensive and therefore you will want to keep it looking its best for years to come.
Here’s my top tips for maintaining a bathroom.
Bathroom Cleaning Products
Never use abrasive cleaners or sponges to clean your bathtub, shower screens or any other part of your bathroom. While these products may be extremely good at removing stubborn stains or tide marks around the bath they will leave scratch marks and become very unsightly and ruin the whole look of your bathroom.
Bathroom Shower Screens
If you have a bathroom cabinet in then keep a Window Cleaning Squeegee or Blade in there. After you use the shower just whip this out and give the glass a quick once over and you’ll find that not only does it leave the glass looking pristine it cuts down on any real effort to clean the glass periodically.
Bathroom Tile Grout
Keep an eye on the grouting on your tiles. If it becomes a little grubby looking then use a grout tile cleaner. If on the other hand the grout begins to crumble then re-grout the tiles without delay. If you leave this then water will soon penetrate behind the tile and cause you no end of damage to your walls and ceilings below – this will end up causing you no end of grief and the cost of repairing your walls and ceilings will leave you feeling extremely unhappy.
Remember it’s not just your wall tiles that need attention – if you have tiled your bathroom floor then regularly inspect this for any damage.
Quick Tip: When you tile a bathroom wall or floor always make sure you have a few spare tiles as you can use these to replace any tiles that become damaged.
Give your waste pipes a quick once over now and then to make sure you have no leaks. Remove the bath panel and check to see if the flooring is completely dry.
Tap washers become worn over time so if you spot a tap that’s leaking, replace the tap washer or if you want to spruce up your bathroom then consider replacing the taps altogether.
Check your toilet cistern on a regular basis to ensure that the ballcock and float valve are in good working order. A cistern that over fills simply wastes water which ends up costing you money on your water bills. Be conscious of the water you use and learn ways in which you can save water.
The simple tips above will certainly help you to keep your bathroom looking great and free of any real major issues for years to come.
