Cleaning the bathroom is a chore none of us like to do and it can sometimes lead to heated discussions about whose turn it is. However, it is a necessary evil that Sunrise Cleaning knows about all too well. Although this task may seem tedious at first, deep cleaning your bathroom is crucial and we have put together all the reasons why you should invest in deep cleaning.
Maintain a Healthy Environment
Every bathroom is a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. This is why it is important not only to clean your bathroom every week, but to do a deep clean of your bathroom at least one a month. By doing this, you are preventing the spread of illness and infections that may affect you in the long run.
Bacteria in your bathroom can grow at a faster pace and live on your surfaces, which cause stomach and bacterial viruses. You can avoid this problem by ensuring you clean your bathroom regularly with bacteria killing solutions.
If you don’t get into the routine of giving your bathroom a deep clean every once in a while, you could also run the risk of mould developing, which can lead to all kinds of issues including respiratory problems if left untreated. Mould in your bathroom can lead to chronic health problems. Deep cleaning your bathroom either by yourself or by a cleaning service every month will be beneficial to you in the long run.
Avoid Unpleasant Odours
Due to the nature of bathrooms and what they are used for, it is no surprise that if not cleaned thoroughly, they tend to smell. This is why using deep cleaning services like Sunrise Cleaning is important in keeping your powder rooms and bathrooms odourless. Basic restroom cleaning can help to ensure that your bathroom is always smelling fresh and clean. Deep cleaning your bathroom helps you get rid of the lingering odours from general bathroom usage by:
- Cleaning the grout
- Washing the floors
- Disinfecting tiles, bathtubs, and showers
- Scrubbing sinks, toilets, and vanities
- Sterilizing countertops and backsplashes
Make Your Bathroom Safer
Deep cleaning your bathroom regularly can also make your restrooms safer for you and your loved ones. Whether you are using a cleaning service or doing it yourself, ridding your bathroom of clutter is a part of any deep cleaning process. Having things around your toilet, shower, or bath tub can be hazardous to you, your family, or friends. It increases the risk of slipping on spilled products and tripping on things that aren’t put away. By deep cleaning, you can make sure things like bath and in-shower mats aren’t outdated so that you don’t slip and fall getting in or out of the shower or bath. Decluttering while deep cleaning is just as important as disinfecting, especially if you are sharing your bathroom with seniors or children who are more prone to slips and falls.
Ensure it is Presentable
Everyone loves a clean bathroom. So making sure you provide your guests with a clean one is key. When you’re entertaining, you don’t just want your house to look nice, but you want your friends and family to have a pleasant visit to the loo as well. With bathrooms, first impressions definitely matter. People using your bathroom will notice the level of cleanliness. If they think that it is sanitary, they will feel more comfortable, which can translate into their level of comfort in coming over in the future. However, if your bathroom is not well maintained, they may start to feel as if you may not be the most hygienic person, which could also influence their perception of you. A deep clean of your entire house can go a long way to show friends and family that you have everything under control.
Boost Your Mood
Aside from how other people may feel about your home, what is more important is how you feel about your home. General dirtiness and clutter can be a major stress factor in your life without you even realizing it. Maybe you want to take action, but don’t know how. This can make you feel self-conscious and perhaps anxious, leading you to avoid the problem altogether, which only continues the cycle. Not only will this apply to your house in general, but having a dirty bathroom as well. Studies have shown that having a clean house leads to healthier, more active people and increasingly positive moods. By deep cleaning your house and bathroom, you will feel more organized and have the energy and drive to do more.
Maintain Your Property Value
If you are looking to potentially sell your home in the future, it is important to keep it consistently clean, especially the bathroom. If you ensure that it is deep cleaned regularly, you will not have to worry about it as much when the time comes to put that for sale sign on your lawn. It is proven that clean homes have a higher selling value and prospective buyers value bathrooms greatly when they are looking to purchase. Many real estate agents concentrate on general cleanliness as one of the most important aspects when it comes to putting your home on the market. Investing in regular deep cleaning yourself or through an agency such as Sunrise Cleaning can result in a return on investment.
