Cleaning Bathrooms and Children: What You Need to Know

Where Are Germs Hidden in Your NYC Apartment Bathroom?What’s the most dangerous room in your house? Can you guess?

Perhaps you guessed it. Otherwise, you might be surprised to learn that the most dangerous room in your home is considered to be the bathroom. For a few obvious reasons, such as sharp razors, electronics, hard surfaces and large amounts of water, it’s understandable why the bathroom is considered a high-risk place to be.

Beyond the observable, there are a few pieces of vital information that you should become aware of when it comes to the topic of dangers lurking in your bathroom—especially if you have children.

How Is A Bathroom Properly Cleaned

Whether you clean your own bathroom or hire a professional service to do it, there is generally a process to follow when cleaning a bathroom.

Typically, it’s best to start from the top and work your way down. All unnecessary items should be removed from the area so every appliance can be cleaned properly and thoroughly.

It is important to disinfect the toilet bowl and the shower, while not missing the hard to reach places—like the base of the toilet and the showerhead. The especially dirty areas should be scrubbed and sometimes it is helpful to let cleaning products sit for a while in order to break up lime and build-up.

When you’re in your bathroom, you should always keep an eye open for suspicious substances, because it could be mold and that does affect the health of you and your family.

What Danger Lurks In Your Bathroom

Just thinking about what takes place in the bathroom should raise any red flags that you might have. There are probably a lot of unhygienic hands touching faucets and flushing toilet handles. Furthermore, bathrooms tend to be dark, warm and moist places—which is the ideal home for mold to grow and prosper.

We’ve all learned that there are bacteria everywhere, but did you know that mold spores are everywhere too? Mold is usually noticeable, so if you see anything suspicious, address it straight away. It can be hidden, however. For example, it is easy for mold to be hidden behind old wallpaper and underneath floor tiles. Mold is not always life threatening but for people with weakened immunity, like asthmatics, babies and the elderly, it can be.

How To Prevent Mold

To prevent mold, it is important to let some light into your bathroom. Open the curtains or leave the light on every once in awhile. Fresh air and proper circulation prevent mold spores from populating. Another useful tip is to squeegee excess water away from your shower doors and walls.
