Hello, friends and hopefully future clients of Mel Cleaning’s steam cleaning London services!

Learn how to prevent your bathroom and toilet from dirt. Mel Cleaning bathroom cleaning services and its qualified cleaners in London will help you with that.

 

You might think the bathroom is the place you go to when you want to be squeaky clean, but it’s also the place for harboring a lot of bacteria.

 

Bathroom Hygiene

Humid and warm atmosphere provide ideal conditions for proliferation of bacteria, most of which can be found in the washbasin.

 

Bathtubs and showers are far from bacteria and germ free, given the fact that soapy water, which is usually full with bodily bacteria, forms layers on all bathroom surfaces and the shower curtains. 

 

The perfect breeding ground for bacteria is usually sponges and towels, which happen to remain moist during a most of the day. And let’s not forget face cloths, which are usually more wet than dry, forming a real disgusting nest for microbes.

 

Handlers and taps are one of the most common sources of contamination. They collect a great number of bacteria with the help of moist or wet hands. 

 

Types of bacteria found in the bathroom:

  • Staphylococus aureus
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • E.Coli
  • Enterobacter 
  • Salmonella

 

 Tips and advice:

  • Vinegar could be one of your most powerful allies when it comes to fighting bacteria. Using a clean cloth soaked in vinegar, wipe all bathroom surfaces and even pour some down the drains. Every week the washbasin needs to be rinsed with two cups of vinegar.
  • Each family member needs to have their towels for different parts of the body – hands, feet, face. Germs thrive in dirty, moist environment, so be sure to clean and air the bathroom.
  •  The toothbrushes need to be kept separated from everything else. Don’t share them and change them every 3 months. 
  • Regularly clean all surfaces that you are most often in contact with – handles, taps.

 

As often as possible, wash your hands with soap in warm water for at least 15 seconds.

 

 

Toilet Hygiene

Very much like the bathroom, the toilet is a similarly humid area, thanks to the water in the cistern. And we all know how much germs love humidity. Toilet bacteria absorb organic waste and in turn release gases with an awful smell. And this is where the importance of hygiene steps in.

 

Bacteria can be found in the toilet bowl, the seat, floor, the door handle and even the flush. There are traces of bacteria in limescale deposits as well.

 

With every flushing of the toilet, you spread bacteria up to 1.5 m high, which cover all surrounding surfaces. Of your toilet and bathroom are in the same space, bacteria lands on your toothbrush as well.

 

Always close the lid before flushing!

 

Don’t forget to clean the toilet brush as well, as it spreads germs much like sponges, face cloths, cloths, etc.

 

Types of bacteria in the toilet:

  • Salmonella
  • Listeria
  • E.Coli
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Staphylococus aureus
  • Listeria
  • Enterobacter

 

Tips and advice: 

  • Flush the toilet only with a closed lid to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria.
  • Frequently air the toilet to reduce humidity
  • Be sure to make daily cleaning of your toilet with specifically designed products. Do the same with your child’s seat/potty.
  • After every use of the toilet, be sure to wash your hands, using a push-pump soap as it does not allow the collection of bacteria.
