The bathroom is one room in the house that is used every day and germs, dirt and grime of every imaginable variety can collect easily. This is reason enough why the bathroom needs frequent deep cleaning.

1. Mould makes the bathroom look dirty

Bathroom mould is an unhealthy problem that should be addressed as soon as you spot it.

Mould grows in the crevices between the tiles and in the corners and it can be difficult to remove if it is not done regularly. To remove mould, wipe your bathroom walls with a gentle cleaner.

2. Bathroom odours are a complete turnoff

A smelly toilet bowl and mouldy towels can be embarrassing and very unhygienic.

Bathroom odours are a common source of embarrassment and can be hazardous to your health as well.

Spots of dry urine on the floor around the toilet bowl are not only highly unhygienic but makes your bathroom look filthy and smell like a public restroom.

Dark brown spots of mildew on your towels are unhygienic as well and leave a nasty, musty smell lingering in the air.

3. Sticky floors are disgusting and dangerous

Spraying perfume and hairspray leaves a light residue on countertops and other areas of the bathroom like the floor and mirrors.

Soap residue meanwhile can leave the floor sticky, leaving the tiles looking dull. When the floor is wet, soap residue poses a danger as it can leave the tiles slippery, increasing the risk of you slipping or falling in the bathroom.

Scrubbing the floors regularly and wiping off all wall, mirror and counter surfaces at least once a week will maintain a shiny, clean bathroom that’s a delight to spend time in.

Taps and shower heads can harbour harmful bacteria so keep them clean always.

4. Harmful bacteria can threaten your health

Do not let your bathroom become a hot spot for germs, mould and grime. Experts have found that bathroom taps and shower heads can harbour drug-resistant bacteria such as E coli, which can damage your immune and respiratory systems.

If you cannot do it yourself, get a cleaning team to come in and help rid you of these harmful bacteria and germs. Kaodim provides home, office and shoplot disinfection along with many other services.
