There are tons of tiny tasks that need to be taken care of around the house on a daily basis, and it can be hard to keep up. Bathrooms, which should get a deep clean at least once a month might go three or four without even being touched by a mop or a sponge. Putting together a simple list of cleaning tasks in the bathroom can make the job much more straight forward and easier overall. To clean the bathroom like a pro, you’ve got to hit all of the normal spots including the mirrors, floor, sink and bathtub, but there are often a few key spots that people miss. Make sure you hit these locations on your next bathroom roundup for the most comprehensive clean.

4 Bathroom Cleaning Spots That Often Get Missed

Combs and Brushes
Combs and brushes can get clogged with hair and hair products like mousse and hair spray. To clean them properly, run a fine toothed comb through each tool to get the hair out, then put the items in a large basin filled with warm, soapy water.

Sink Drains
The drain stopper that sits down in your sink drain can get extremely clogged and dirty in no time. To clean it, remove the stopper and soak it in a solution of baking soda, vinegar and water for about an hour. Remove the stopper, and scour it with a sponge to remove the excess gunk.

Light Bulbs and Light Fixtures
Sometimes light fixtures and bulbs can be the dustiest, grimiest areas in a room. Don’t forget about these places in your bathroom by swiping them with a damp cloth each time you clean. If fixtures have dead bugs in them, you’ll need to unscrew the attachments, empty the bugs into the trash, and soak non-electrical items in sudsy water for about twenty minutes before drying and replacing them.

Exhaust Fan
Bathrooms and especially shower rooms often have fans for exhaust. These can get dusty and grimy in no time flat. According to Grimebusters Ltd if you don’t take care of these fixtures often, that dust and grime can turn sticky and hard to remove. Clean exhaust fans by dusting first, and then using a soapy sponge to do the rest.

If you’re still having trouble cleaning your bathroom to the full extent, consider hiring a maid from an Edmonton maid service. Maids have been trained in all of the cleaning methods listed above and more. Follow the advice above or hire a maid service for your bathroom cleaning routine, and you’ll have the most spotless bathroom in town.

    Get list of missed spots indeed. These are the things people tend to forget. Thanks for pointing them out and giving us the reminders.

  2. Oh…my brushes are the worst! I have to clean them at least once a week. It’s amazing how even a little hairspray can show up on the brushes. I could really use some extra help around the house. I used to have a maid service and absolutely loved it.

  3. It’s a great list, fortunately these spots require cleaning once or twice a month.
    Hiring a professional is so convenient, especially when you don’t know how to clean the exhaust fan (like me).

  4. These areas are easy to forget when cleaning and it is not a bad idea to add them in your cleaning schedule for the bathroom. We at Carpet Cleaning Paddington Ltd., often clean bathrooms and we take these areas very seriously as we know that they collect so much dirt. Thumbs up for the post! 🙂

  5. I would like to see more posts like this. I definitely enjoyed every bit of it and I have you bookmarked to see new information on your blog.
