Cleaning Tips for your Bathroom Countertops in Denver

January 3, 2018

Do you dread cleaning your bathroom? Are you looking for ways to make sure the money you have spent on your space provides a good return on your investment? The best thing you can do is to make sure you are cleaning your bathroom to maintain its quality. If you have recently updated your home and bathroom countertops in Denver, use these time and money saving cleaning tips. From your showers and mirrors, to floors and counters, a few changes to your routine will keep your bathroom looking fantastic.

Showers, Backsplashes and Mirrors

To ensure mold and mildew do not grow in your shower, make sure you wipe it down at least once per week. You can use the cleaning solution of your choice that is safe for your particular surface. If you have backsplash in your shower, make sure you know what you can use on it so you do not ruin its finish with a harsh chemical cleaner. If you have grout, be sure to clean that weekly as well. For your mirrors, there are a few ways to clean them without leaving streaks or spots on the surface. To help avoid this, use a glass cleaner, or a mixture of water and vinegar. Investing in and using a microfiber cloth also helps to keep particles from being left on the surface.

Floors and Ceilings

Over time, much can collect on your bathroom floors—especially in corners and along trim. Make sure you are sweeping your floor weekly to gather some of these particles. If you have a vacuum that can work on non-carpet flooring, you can do a few passes on the space. Make sure you either use the small suction tools or a broom to sweep out debris from those corners and along the wall. Also, don’t forget to care for your ceiling. One area many homeowners forget is the ceiling exhaust. It is crucial to know how to clean that neglected bathroom exhaust fan. This is an important piece to keep mold and mildew from building up in the space. Next, make sure you remove dirt and mold that accumulates on the ceiling over time. Since you will need a bleach cleaner, make sure to use a mask when cleaning.

Caring for Stone Counters

Unlike many areas of the home, you will not want to use an abrasive cleaner on your stone counters. Your go-to bathroom counter cleaner should be light and mild. A mixture of a mild dish detergent and warm water is all you will need. Make sure to clean your counters weekly. It is also important to make sure you clean any spills as quickly as possible to ensure your counters do not stain. If you do not have stone counters, they are a top choice that will increase the value of your home. Use some of these color and décor ideas for your new Denver bathroom countertops.
