Daily life keeps us occupied, tired or exhausted, many of us neglect to do the basic sanitizing and maintenance cleaning. Therefore, we only tend to perform spot clean areas which that appear dirty. But this is like the mirage, the main problem is that often, tile and grout don’t “seem dirty” until the grime builds up so much that it’s so obvious that you need to do some cleaning.

For that reason, we have stepped up and we have decided it is the right moment to publish it so many can have access to it. It takes from 30 minutes up to an hour once per week to perform it.
1. CleanING Tub and Shower.
The most burdensome task is to tackle the bathtub and/or shower. If left uncleaned for a long period of time, tile and grout can quickly become a massive task. If you are seeming to struggle with a vast amount of mould, damaged grout, or stubborn water stains, call CCL Cleaners to assist or perhaps send an expert to you. Alternatively, follow these steps to keep your tub or shower clean:

It isn’t essential to stock up or purchase costly and toxically dangerous detergents, Instead, take an empty spray bottle and mix a third cup of vinegar and fill it up with water. Use this ready-mix solution to spray your shower regularly or for hefty cleaning with a rubber sponge once per week.

Vanity and the bathroom sink are a prime locations for the accumulation of gunk. Using products like toothpaste, makeup, hair care products, men’s shaving gels, or soap it can become a plethora of build-up and residue that cries to be scrubbed up for hours or getting a hand to powerful chemicals once again.
How reduce the accumulation of sink muck?
Main point is to wipe it down each day. Deep clean it off once per week even if you use harsh chemicals, this will help to maintain in better shape.
At the end of your makeup routine or shaving procedure, just wipe down the vanity and sink with the already made solution before storming out of the bathroom. Regular vanity wipes down are essential at least once per week, remove all items from top and give the vanity a thorough clean and scrub.
3. WIPE SHOWER RODS AND RINGS

4. CLEAN SINK CHROME ORNAMENTS.
Chrome ornaments are visible to “the naked” eye. Fixtures like the little drain cover in your sink getting heavily lime scaled when constantly run by water. If you remove it you will find a lot of accumulated mould.
