Are you looking for ways to clean your bathroom and keep it spick and span? Do you find it difficult to keep up with cleaning the bathroom for as much as your family uses it? If so, then you need to learn all that you can about how to clean a bathroom thoroughly.

Doing so will help you understand the best way to clean it quickly, efficiently, and (more importantly) keep it that way throughout the busy week.

See below for an in-depth guide explaining how to clean a bathroom the right way, as well as how to get the help you need with maintaining a tidy house.

1. Hire Professional Cleaning Services

Why settle for anything better than the best? You’re strapped for time as is. You have a career to focus on, a family to feed, children to provide for. The last thing you need is to worry about cleaning your bathroom.

Not only do you not want to, but studies show that you don’t have the time to. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, studies show that the average American has less than a half-hour of free time each week. Not each day; each week. Don’t use that free time being bogged down by chores.

Instead, hire a professional cleaning service to do the work for you. They’ll be able to thoroughly clean your bathroom, as well as every other part of your house. The best part? You control how frequently or infrequently that they stop by.

Here at Dirt Busters, we have all of the resources and cleaning solutions necessary to ensure a disinfected and sparkly clean result. Our entire crew has years of experience in residential home cleaning, meaning you get a higher return on your investment.

Let us know what chores you need to be done around the house. We have different tiers of services to ensure we can meet virtually any budget.

2. Break It Into Segments

Just saying the phrase “clean a bathroom” sounds overwhelming, doesn’t it? Why is that? It’s because, subconsciously, we all know the same truth: there are a lot of components inside a bathroom.

If you simply aim to clean the bathroom, then you’ll be unsatisfied with the results. You or one of your family members will focus more on tidying it up and giving it a thorough clean.

That’s another way that Dirt Buster’s professional cleaning services can benefit you. We focus on disinfecting and getting rid of stains, dirt, dust, and grime. We don’t settle for “good enough”, we keep going until the place is spotless!

If you’re going to do it yourself or alternate between a professional cleaning every other week, then here’s our advice: break up the bathroom into segments. There are four main segments to focus on—sinks, toilets, showers, and glass.

Think of each of these as different “levels”. Once you successfully defeat one level, you can move on to the next one. Then the next one. You get the idea. This can also help you distribute the responsibility to many different family members, putting one person in charge of one segment.

3. Let Cleaning Solution Do Its Thing

This is by far the biggest mistake that most homeowners make when they go to clean their own bathrooms (or any other room, for that matter). 

For example, they spray a glass cleaner on their bathroom mirror, then immediately wipe it up. Then they wonder why there are streak marks left behind. Because it didn’t have time to break down the dirt and dust that you made the streak marks with!

Any time that you go to disinfect your bathroom, be sure to spray/apply the cleaning solution, then give it time to works its magic. 

One of our favorite techniques is laying the solution on one segment (on the sink, for example), then wiping up another segment (such as the shower) while the sink gets a thorough clean. Then, it’s as easy as wiping it up!

4. Focus on High-Touch Areas

What if we told you that the dirtiest part of your bathroom wasn’t the toilet? What if we told you that the handles on your sink had more germs crowded on them than your shower?

Everyone touches the different handles and knobs in/on the bathroom, and yet they still go uncleaned by most people when cleaning a bathroom.

Take a walk in your bathroom and assess all high-touch areas in it. Take a keen interest in disinfecting those areas. This can greatly reduce the likelihood that your family gets sick.

5. More than a Scrub

Many homeowners have the misconception that they can walk into their bathroom with Clorox and a sponge, and face any cleaning needs head-on.

Contrary to popular belief, efficient bathroom cleaning is so much more than scrubbing things with a sponge. 

For example, you need to remove any growing cobwebs, you need to empty the trash, you need to wipe down the inside of the sliding shower door, etc. Dusting is especially important, as it can complicate your family’s breathing and lead to sickness rather quickly. Take the time to assess it for your situation.
