Many, if not most, homeowners clean their kitchen sinks and bathtubs because these are frequently used places. You prepare meals and snacks as well as wash the pots, pans and dishes on the kitchen sink and counters, while you take baths every day in your bathroom. You keep them as clean as possible because you want our food to be safe and your baths to be enjoyable.
Dirty Despite the Clean Appearance
But you will be surprised that despite regular cleaning, the kitchen sink, countertops and bathrooms in your home may not be as clean as you think! If you can use a microscope on their surfaces, you will be grossed out by the presence of pathogens from bacteria and fungi to mold and mildew.
There’s good news, fortunately, as these potential pathogens can be removed safely and effectively by professional cleaning technicians. Ask about the Chem-Dry prices for tile and grout cleaning services now! Your kitchen sink, countertops and bathroom will be clean as a whistle when the technicians have completed the job.
Indeed, you shouldn’t be complacent about the level of cleanliness in these areas of your home. You will not like it that these are still dirty deep down, so to speak, despite being clean on the surface.
Quick Fixes for Dirty Surfaces
Experts recommend professional tile and grout cleaning for these areas at least once every 6 to 12 months. This should be sufficient to remove the buildup of grime on these surfaces and restore their attractive appearance.
Between professional cleanings, you can perform these steps to clean, disinfect and deodorize these surfaces.
- Clean your kitchen sink and countertops with clean rags after each use so that stains and spills will not soak through the tiles and grout. Sanitize these areas by washing them with a water and bleach solution once a day; let the solution stay for a few minutes before letting it run down the drain. Remove the drain plug for cleaning and sanitizing, too.
- Clean and disinfect bathtubs with either a bathroom cleaner or a bleach solution after every bath – or as often as possible, if your busy schedule doesn’t allow for daily bathtub cleanings. Be sure to dry the bathtubs with a clean towel afterwards.
- Clean the tiles and grout lines of your bathrooms on a regular basis so that mold and mildew growth can be reduced.
Again, these are quick fixes to dirty surfaces. You should still contact the nearest professional cleaning service company like Chem-Dry for better solutions to your dirty issues.
