Renovating Bathrooms & Maintenance

Congratulations, you found the right Bathroom Renovator and you completed your reno!

Bathrooms are constantly in need of maintenance. Bathtubs, sinks, and toilets collect dirt and layers of film very easily and for this reason they need regular cleaning to keep them looking their best. Toilets and wash basins should be cleaned at least once every two weeks, depending on how frequently they are used. However, there is more to bathroom maintenance than just scrubbing the tub, washing out the sink, scrubbing the toilet and washing the bathmats. Below you will find some maintenance tips that will help your bathroom perform and look its best.

Caulking:

For those of you that have tile in your bathroom, always check that the grout is solid and not full of holes or missing in some spots. You want to make sure to secure the whole area and prevent water from seeping into the cracks between tiles. It’s a good idea to caulk at least once year, or whenever you notice an area where the caulk’s integrity has been compromised. Furthermore, check to see that you have a good seal around the fixtures. Renovating your bathroom  can sometimes cause problems, so make sure you do your homework and get the right bathroom renovators on board!

Bathroom Showers:

Showers are constantly being used by a household. Typically there will be at least one shower taken a day, depending on how many people share the bathroom. For this reason you will notice the shower becoming filthy quite fast. Whenever you notice white film or black mold be sure to scrub it down with an abrasive cleaner. You will typically find this on shower curtains or on shower doors.

If you have a shower door, it is a good practice to take the door out regularly and check the tracks for mold or standing water. If water is standing in the tracks, try drilling small holes at an angle in discrete areas so that this water can drain back into the tub basin. Also, be sure to check the caulking in these areas because it receives heavy wear and tear.

Bathroom Exhaust Fan:

Exhaust fans are a very important element to a bathroom. Without proper ventilation, the bathroom will become susceptible to mold and mildew growth. Dust will collect in the bathroom fan quite easily with the moist environment and the nature of this fan so it is best to clean out the filter in the bathroom fan and vacuum out the intake panel at least once a month. This will ensure that the fan functions better as well.

Toilets:

Toilets should be cleaned at least once a week. If you let the toilet collect filth for a long period of time, the task of cleaning it will not be very easy. However, if you stay up with the maintenance, the task will not take very long or be much work. Not only should you scrub out the inside, but you should also take a rag around the base of the toilet to test for water.

Sometimes you will find a small amount of water seeping out from the base. If you do notice water, fix this small leak immediately because it could lead to a much bigger

Bathroom Floors:

Bathroom floor mats collect a great deal of dirt. Dusty feet, muddy feet, wet feet, you name it. They are typically designed to hide much of the dirt that they collect, but this doesn’t mean that they aren’t in fact very dirty. Also, because of the amount of water that they absorb, these mats should be washed at least once a month. The regular floor will need to be cleaned just as often as your kitchen floors.problem. Call a plumber at your earliest convenience because it is their job to fix such leaks, and they can fix most problems quickly.

Bathroom Sink:

Bathroom sinks often get dirtier than kitchen sinks due to the fact that they do not have a garbage disposal breaking debris down. Everything from toothpaste, spit, blood, makeup, hair, and shaving cream to the occasional cotton swab, Q-Tip, toothbrush and jewelry all go down the bathroom sink at sometime or another. For this reason it is a very good practice to pull the drain stopper and clean it thoroughly. Furthermore, clean around the sink and check around the fixtures for leaks.
