One of the nice things about first moving into a rental home is that everything is so clean. A quality landlord will have thoroughly cleaned each room of the home— from bathrooms to the kitchen— all before move-in day. However, because of time and daily use, there is a need for a good deep cleaning, even for bathrooms that are kept tidy regularly. To keep your Avalon Park rental home’s bathrooms sanitary and well-maintained, you should have some . This would see to it that your bathrooms are kept sparkling clean.
Probably, the things that would need deep cleaning the most are your tub, shower, and showerhead. All of these will have to be deep cleaned regularly to remove residue buildup and water spots. A good and simple way 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 it sit for an hour. This allows the mixture some time to work. Then wipe and rinse it clean. For shower walls, try spraying them with an all-purpose cleaner and then have the hot water run 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, just pour out a little 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. Make sure it’s secured; you can use a rubber band or twist-tie. Then let sit overnight. The next morning, remove the bag and wipe the showerhead clean.
Another part of the bathroom you should consider giving a deep clean regularly is the toilet. Whilst there are many different toilet cleaners on the market, using baking soda to deep clean a toilet remains to be the most effective method. Simply pour a cup of baking soda into the toilet bowl and let sit for about five minutes. When the time is up, get a toilet brush and brush thoroughly. When you’re done, flush to rinse.
If your rental home’s bathroom has tile, it’s important that you deep clean the grout to avoid bacterial 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, it’s suggested that you reseal it every six months or so to keep moisture and bacteria out. Bleach can also be used to address any mold growing in windowsills or other areas. Prepare the solution by mixing one part bleach to two parts water and scrub any mold spots with a sponge.
