One of the most used rooms in the home is the bathroom. It serves many functional purposes, of course—and is also a great source of relaxation. When done right, the bathroom also represents the look and feel you want for your house. However, when the bathroom becomes older and harder to maintain, it can have homeowners reaching for the phone to call bathroom remodelers for help.

Brand-new bathroom products such as showers, tubs, and tile are made with high-quality acrylic or fiberglass materials that resist build-up and grime. These updated materials feature advanced technology that even fights bacteria like mold and mildew, which can be terribly hard to keep away on older surfaces. 

Newer materials are much easier to clean and maintain as a result, which is a good incentive for those considering the replacement of their bath products in the near future. With the help of an expert bath company like Luxury Bath of Tampa by your side, bathroom remodeling is quick, easy, and affordable—and offers a lifetime of benefits. However, if you’re holding off on bathroom remodeling at the moment and struggling to clean your aging bathroom, here are some tips to keep it clean and sanitized before beginning your next bathroom remodeling project.

Top Tips for a Perfectly Clean Bathroom

Just like other rooms in the home, basic cleaning needs to be done regularly. In newer bathrooms, cleaning is extremely simple. With a few sprays from a bottle filled with a homemade solution of half vinegar and half water, and a quick wipe with a cloth, and you’re done. 

Aging bathrooms, however, will need a bit more work to keep looking as good as possible. As you probably know by now, there are issues that come up that make it difficult to stay on top of the cleaning effort. With that in mind, we’ve put together a handy list of tricks to make the bathroom cleaning process a whole lot easier.

  • No More Moisture: Mold, mildew, and other bacteria thrive in a wet environment. That’s why it’s a good idea to leave a squeegee in the shower so you can wipe down the shower walls. Don’t forget to turn on the exhaust fan and leave the door open to dry out the room as quickly as possible. A dry bathroom is a clean bathroom.
  • Use Pump Soaps: One of the easiest ways to mar the bathroom is with regular hand soap. Bar soap takes a while to dry and leaves behind a residue that can be difficult to clean. With a pump-action soap dispenser, that’s one less problem to deal with.
  • Establish Order: This means organizing your cabinets, vanities, and shelves. By keeping things where they should be, you can let your bathroom shine as the showpiece it is. Don’t forget to install towel bars and shower caddies if needed to keep everything off the ground.
  • Remember the Shower Curtain: This is the one part of the shower that’s often neglected. Don’t fall into the trap of forgetting to clean this piece! If you spritz the bottom of the curtain with a cleaner that contains bleach, you’ll remove soap scum and other materials. 
In addition, it’s recommended to wash the shower curtain every couple of months. It is important to mention that shower curtains can be upgraded with beautiful glass shower doors or shower enclosures—made with easy-to-clean, durable materials that will look like new for decades without the heavy maintenance. Unless you’re in love with your shower curtain and the bacteria it attracts, consider tossing the shower curtain and replacing it instead for a healthier bathroom environment.
  • Refresh the Grout: Dingy or grimy grout is a turnoff for anyone. Fortunately, it’s simple to make the grout look like new instead of springing for a complete tile replacement. All you need is a grout brush and bleach. Combine the two and scrub away at the buildup and mildew stains. Just remember that bleach is really strong and you’ll want to ventilate the room while doing this.
  • Inspect the Vent: Dust, moisture, and other concerns can build up heavily over a short period of time, infiltrating your air vents. Regularly clean and inspect the vent to ensure the bathroom remains perfectly ventilated going forward.
