Deep Cleaning Your Fremont Rental Home’s Bathrooms

Cleaning Supplies as the Focal Point of a Bathroom in a Fremont Rental HomeWithout a doubt, one of the best moments when first moving into a new home is how clean everything is. A good landlord will make sure that each room of the home, from the kitchen to the bathrooms, have been thoroughly cleaned before move-in day. However, after some time and because of everyday use, even bathrooms that are maintained every week will eventually need a good deep cleaning. To keep your rental home’s bathrooms sanitary and in good condition, you should perform some deep cleaning tasks every few months to ensure that your bathrooms are kept sparkling clean.

You have to remember that one of the areas that will need deep cleaning the most is your tub, shower, and showerhead. Every one of these will need to be deep cleaned regularly to remove residue buildup and water spots. One of the proven ways to clean any bathroom surface is by mixing a few drops of white vinegar with a cup of baking soda to make a paste. Spread the mixture over the tub or shower door and let sit for an hour, then wipe and rinse clean. For shower walls, try spraying them with an all-purpose cleaner and then run the hot water until the shower fills with steam. Close the shower door and let the cleaner sit for about twenty minutes, then wipe down with a wet sponge or cloth.

Vinegar works great on sinks and showerheads, too. To clean a sink with vinegar, simply pour out a small amount, scrub, and flush with hot water. To clean a showerhead with white vinegar, fill a bag with it and then place the bag over the showerhead so that the entire fixture is soaking in the vinegar. Secure with a rubber band or twist-tie and let sit overnight. The next morning, remove the bag and wipe the showerhead clean.

One more area of the bathroom that you should deep clean on a regular basis is the toilet. Even though there are several different toilet cleaners on the market, the most effective way to really deep clean a toilet is by using baking soda. Simply pour a cup of baking soda into the toilet bowl and let sit for about five minutes. Brush thoroughly with a toilet brush and then flush to rinse.

Lastly, if your Fremont rental home’s bathroom has tile, you will need to deep clean the grout regularly to avoid bacteria growth. Bleach and a grout brush are the best ways to lighten discolored grout lines and kill anything trying to grow between your tile. To really keep grout watertight, reseal it every six months or so to keep moisture and bacteria out. Bleach can also be utilized to address any mold growing in windowsills or other areas. Simply mix one part bleach to two parts water and scrub any mold spots with a sponge.

Deep cleaning a bathroom doesn’t have to demand so much of your time and effort, but it is essential to remember to do it on a regular basis. As long as you understand and know how to deep clean a bathroom the way the pros do it, you can more easily stay on top of this vital maintenance task.
