How to quickly clean your bathroom with a bathroom steam cleaner and a few tips to decrease the “gross” factor of your toilet. We also look at the steam grout cleaner & why your tiles need it.
Cleaning a bathroom or toilet isn’t the most pleasant of tasks. In fact, I go out of my way to avoid it and get someone else to do it! These areas are prone to much more than a little dust and dirt (which I can handle mind you.) They are usually the home of all types of bacteria, viruses, grime, mold and “other” undesirables.
No one likes a dirty bathroom, so it is wise to clean it at least once a week. If you have a large family, you might want to increase the number of cleanings. Before you begin cleaning, there are a few changes you might want to consider to reduce the number of bacteria floating around your bathroom.
The first tip is to put down the toilet seat and then flush it. Why? Whenever you flush the toilet (with the lid up), a spray of contaminated water droplets fills the air. These droplets float around and settle on all the surfaces in your bathroom. Yes, I know… gross! So please, do remember to put down those toilet seats.
Another item in your bathroom besides the toilet which is particularly vulnerable to bacteria is your bathtub. Yes, this may or may not be surprising to you, but the place where you clean yourself every day, may not be very clean itself! In fact, bathtubs seem to attract bacteria like a magnet. They have tested positive for a wide range of harmful bacteria including: staphylococcus, fecal matter bacteria, fungi and staph bacteria.
Seeing that the majority of threats stem from bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms, what is the most effective cleaner to use? A bathroom steam cleaner is particularly effective in these cases and best of all, is not limited only to your bathroom.
These bathroom steam cleaners emit steam at high temperatures which kills all of the bacteria and microorganisms leaving your bathroom clean and sanitized. The best part of this for me is that it is very low contact (the steam does all the hard work) and no chemicals are used, which I have severe allergic reactions to.
You can use the steam cleaner to clean faucets, door knobs, both inside and outside your bathtub, the shower stall, around the toilets, sinks, shower curtains, the floor and even your grout. The use of a steamer is unlimited. Not only does it clean and sanitize your bathroom, but it also improves the air quality and gets rid of bad odors which bathrooms are famous for!
The use of steam cleaners for cleaning tile is endless. Many steam cleaners come with concentrated nozzles which you can use on your grout lines. You’ll be surprised at the amount of dirt and grime that will lift off. It is also a much better method for cleaning them than breaking your back using a brush!
When you buy a steam cleaner for your bathroom, make sure that you purchase one with multiple attachments. The reason for this is that these will allow you to clean all the surfaces in your home and not just the bathroom. Make sure to read the instructions carefully so that you use the correct attachment for the job. This will make you life and cleaning easier.
