Scientists have carried out a study which shows that shower heads can conceal the most harmful germs. Few people enjoy cleaning the bathroom, but it is a vital part of the home care routing and an integral part of our daily lives. Maintaining proper hygiene standards help prevent the spread of germs which in turn helps prevent the spread of diseases and contamination in the family. There are many things you can do to stop the spread of germs, and in this article, we will mention some of them to you.
Remove all unnecessary items from the bathroom itself. The shower head is a comfortable place for germs and you need to clean it regularly. Run only hot water at least once a month to get rid of the gathered bacteria. You can even use powerful detergents to clean the shower head by soaking it. Scrub the bathtub to get rid of germs and use detergents for it as well. Make sure you prevent long term moist as it will enhance the spread of the germs.
Shower curtains are known as the best place for germs to settle and spread. Instead of buying shower curtains, opt for a glass shower enclosure for health reasons. Glass can be easily cleaned using gloves and disinfectant detergents. The curtains take a long time to dry up completely and become the perfect home for the bathroom germs. The cup we use to hold out tooth brushes is also a good place for germs. It needs to be cleaned at least once a week for improved cleanliness. When designing your bathroom, make sure the sink and toilet are separated from each other. This will reduce the spread of germs a lot.
Make sure you close all shampoo, shower gel and similar bottles. They get dusty, and along with the dust come the germs. Use liquid soap rather than the solid one, to reduce germs spreading. In most home bathrooms, the walls are tiled. Where these have congregated mold colonies, use water spray mixed with a solution of bleach and leave it to rest for a few minutes before trying to remove it. This is also effective on ceilings and window frames. Tile grout can harbor germs, so be sure to thoroughly scrub these areas.
Bathrooms fitted with hygienic cladding do not have this problem, as the smooth joins and impenetrable finish make them easy to clean. Bacteria find it difficult to colonize such a surface, making them an increasingly popular choice for new bathrooms and commercial sites. You need to spray detergents on the faucets and other stainless steel components as well. Clean your bathroom sink together with the faucet and taps.
The toilet is the part of the bathroom that requires the most attention. Urine and faeces attract a lot of germs and that is why your toilet needs to be clean all the time. Pour some toilet disinfectant into the toilet bowl and use a brush to scrub it completely. Clean both the interior and the exterior surface of the toilet bowl for a more effective result. Not perhaps necessary on a regular clean, but nevertheless important, is to remove the layer of deposits which often congregate behind the toilet and the layer of scum in the bowl. Use a special cleaner to remove these.
A lot of people don’t realise what bathroom germs can cause. Regular cleaning of the bathroom will help reduce and remove germs. Preventing the spread of bacteria and germs is even more important when you have small kids around, as their immune system is not as strong as ours.
