Bathroom Cleaning Tips and Tricks

The bathroom is one of the most-used rooms in the house. Because of this, it’s also one of the hardest to keep clean. In addition to frequent use taking a toll, steam from the shower and sink create the perfect atmosphere for dust, soap scum and spotty mirrors. Molly Maid is here to help you keep your bathroom clean and reduce germs.

About Our Bathroom Cleaning Services

As part of our house cleaning services, Molly Maid thoroughly cleans all surfaces throughout the bathroom. This includes wiping down windowsills, baseboards, blinds and more. Our experts scrub and remove soap scum from your shower, tub, tile and grout. Next, we focus on the sink by wiping down the vanity, mirror and countertops to remove all water spots, toothpaste and buildup.

Perhaps most importantly, we clean the entire toilet inside and out – you’re welcome! We finish by vacuuming bathmats and mopping the bathroom floor to remove hair and debris. We even go the extra mile by polishing faucets, drains caps and towel holders.

Bathroom Cleaning Schedule

  • Daily: After each shower, use a small squeegee to help prevent water marks on the walls. Also keep a small handheld vaccum to use on the floors each day.
  • Weekly: Once per week, combine the above duties with a thorough cleaning of the shower, tub, toilet, and surfaces. Mop the floor weekly as well.
  • Monthly: Once per month, be sure to organize all your cabinets and closets within your bathroom spaces. This helps maintain an easy order within these storage spaces.
  • Yearly: With regular maintenance, a bathroom should not require a deep, yearly clean. Tasks to do occasionally include taking down blinds and giving them a soak in all-purpose cleaner, and washing your plastic shower curtain in cold water. You should also clean the vents or grilles on the exhaust fan within your vacuum upholstery brush.
