How to clean and maintain your toilet bowl
Homeowners nowadays invest a good amount of money on the interiors of their home. However, it is also important to not only be particular on aesthetics but also the overall cleanliness of the area. If you haven’t done proper bathroom cleaning for quite some time, you might notice stubborn stains building up on certain corners of your toilet bowl. Such stains are usually difficult to remove and would require a professional cleaner to get rid of. All SG toilet bowls are vulnerable to such strains regardless of the toilet brand.
A dirty toilet bowl will undergo a discoloration process – from yellow to black – when it accumulates germs over time. This accumulation of bacteria can eventually cause serious health risks especially when the toilet bowl is shared among family members. However, you can always maintain and clean the toilet bowl and other toilet accessories on your own.
Know what makes your toilet look dirty:
Before delving right into the cleaning process, you should first know what makes your toilet dirty. Here are the most common causes of a dirty toilet bowl, according to a professional toilet bowl installation company:
- Organisms in plumbing systems
There are several organisms living in your sewer systems, despite being invisible to the naked eye. These organisms thrive perfectly in Singapore’s hot and humid climate. As you constantly flush your toilet, these organisms can easily spread and be trapped across different parts of your toilet bowl in Singapore, which can then lead to foul smells and a dirty-looking bowl. It can be tough to remove them depending on your toilet design. Specific cleaning tactics can help you in coping with these organisms effectively.
- Build-up of hard water deposits/stains
Hard water stains may build up in taps, shower sets, and toilet bowls. Regular contact with hard water will leave deposits around the toilet bowl and even around the holes in which the water passes through. With this, regular maintenance should be done to prevent the hard water deposits from clogging the water supply holes.
- Mold and mildew:
Mold and mildew typically grow on damp areas like bathrooms. If your toilet is not maintained on a regular basis, you may spot mold and mildew accumulating around your toilet within a few days. You might also reach a point where you’ll need a toilet bowl replacement if the molds become thick and impossible to remove.
How to keep your toilet bowl clean
There are several toilet cleaners available in the market these days, which is why there’s definitely no excuse when it comes to regular toilet maintenance. Purchase a high-quality plastic brush and a sponge so that you can easily remove accumulated dirt like hard water stains or molds. To prevent any foul smells and odour, remember to use a disinfectant along with your usual toilet bowl cleaner. After cleaning the toilet bowl itself, don’t forget to disinfect the toilet tank and the flush handle. Make sure that you scrub every corner of your toilet bowl, especially if it is a 2-piece toilet. This is because they have more hidden corners filled with accumulated dirt than a 1-piece toilet. Lastly, remember to use gloves when cleaning your toilet bowl, surely you don’t want to get in contact with the bacteria from your bowl.
