Do you like to clean your bathroom but find it hard to do so?

Cleaning bathroom floors should be easy and fast.

However, you need to have the right cleaning products, tools, and techniques.

With 10 years of cleaning expertise under our belt, you will learn that the right cleaning techniques can make this daunting task quick, efficient, and even satisfying.

Knows Your Bathroom Floor’s Type

The first step in cleaning your bathroom floor easily is to know what you’re working with. 

Different materials require different care. 

For ceramic and porcelain tiles, all-purpose cleaners, vinegar, or dish soap are safe bets as they won’t scratch or dull the shine. 

However, for more sensitive materials like marble, granite, or slate, you’ll want to tread lightly with a soft-bristled broom to avoid scratches.

Start with the Right Tools

Before tackling the grime and dirt on your bathroom floor, gathering your cleaning supplies is the first step. 

This includes not just your choice of cleaners but also the right tools for the job. 

Don’t forget to stock up on basics like gloves, brushes, and mops.

For instance, a sweeper-scrubber can be invaluable for removing dust, dirt, and grime, ensuring your floors aren’t just clean but also hygienic.

Step-by-Step Guide on How to Clean Bathroom Floors

Here is our detailed guide that you can follow to clean your bathroom floors with ease:

Step 1: Declutter and Prepare

Begin by removing any rugs, trash cans, and other movable objects from the bathroom. 

This gives you unobstructed access to the floor, making the cleaning process more efficient.

Step 2: Choose Your Cleaning Agent

Now, let’s talk about what you should use to clean your bathroom floor. 

For an effective clean, you don’t necessarily need harsh chemicals. 

Household items like vinegar and baking soda can work wonders, especially for tile floors. 

This combination is not only cost-effective but also environmentally friendly. 

However, remember that these natural cleaners are not suitable for all surfaces, such as marble or granite, due to their acidity.

Step 3: Vacuum the Surface

Sweeping or vacuuming before mopping ensures that you’re not just pushing dirt around. 

You can either use a soft-bristled broom or a vacuum cleaner to remove loose dirt and debris.

Though we recommend using vacuum for hard-to-reach areas or tight corners.

Start with the less dirty areas and move towards the dirtier sections, usually around the toilet and sink. 

This prevents spreading dirt and germs across already cleaned areas.

Step 4: Apply the Cleaning Solution

Choose an appropriate cleaner for your floor type and apply it according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

If you prefer a natural cleaning solution, don’t forget to create a paste by mixing together ingredients like baking soda, vinegar, and warm water.

Let it sit around for 15 – 30 minutes before wiping it down with clean unused cloth.

Step 5: Scrub, Scrub, Scrub!

Use a soft-bristled brush with a long handle to scrub the floor, paying extra attention to grout lines and corners.

Grout lines can be particularly challenging, trapping dirt and changing color over time. 

Using a dedicated grout cleaner or a DIY solution of baking soda and water applied with a brush can slowly restore their appearance.

If you like to mop the floor, change the water frequently to avoid leaving a filmy residue on the tiles

Step 6: Rinse the Floor

Rinse away the cleaning solution and any remaining dirt using clean water. 

For hard-to-reach corners, you can also use a water hose to ensure thorough rinsing.

Step 7: Dry the Floor

After rinsing, use a clean, dry mop or towel to soak up excess water and prevent water spots from forming. 

For best results, we highly suggest you opt for a rotating microfiber mop (with replaceable pads).

This material effectively traps dirt and lint, leaving a streak-free finish. 

Tips for Maintaining Your Bathroom Floors

Believe it or not, incorporating a daily bathroom cleaning into routine can significantly reduce the effort required over time. 

A quick daily or every-other-day vacuum on your bathroom floor can prevent hair and dust from accumulating, making deeper cleans less frequent and less laborious.

Here are some of practical tips for maintaining a clean bathroom floor:

  • Wipe up spills and splatters immediately to prevent stains from setting in.
  • Use a squeegee or towel to dry the floors after each use to minimize water spots and mildew growth.
  • Place a mat or rug outside the shower or bathtub to catch drips and reduce the amount of water on the floor.
  • Sweep or vacuum regularly to remove loose dirt and debris before it can scratch or dull the floor surface.

Also, don’t forget to pay attention to hard-to-reach spots prone to germs, as these get dirtier faster if neglected.

Why is it Important to Clean Bathroom Floors? 

The bathroom, particularly the floors, can quickly become a hotspot for dirt, grime, and bacteria.

Cleaning this area may prevent:

  • Accidents
  • Improve indoor air quality
  • Reduce the spread of germs and bacteria
  • Maintain the appearance of the space
  • Prevent damage to the floors.

Keeping your bathroom floor clean is just as important as cleaning your bedroom, kitchen, and living space, maintaining a safe, healthy, and inviting home.
