From Chaos to Pristine – A Bathroom Make-Over

“Only a Parent knows the Feeling”!

Today we are going to talk about how to tackle the disaster scenario that hundreds of Australian households face each week – the dreaded Bathroom clean. You know the one I mean, soap scum so thick that it looks like you have installed frosted glass shower screens. Hair from those females who seem to lose more hair than the household cat, that gets stuck in the drain grates, stuck to the walls – yeah that kind of bathroom.

Now, I’m sure anyone who has small children or worse, young teens, knows exactly what I speak of. I’m not sure what happened over the generations, when I was young my mother made me clean the bathroom shower screen while I was in having my shower. Which, today I see the wisdom in doing and still do this till this day. However, trying to explain this to the younger generations seems to fall on deaf ears as they say. They would rather let it build-up to the point that bacteria itself wont take habitat in there.

I know as a parent myself, I have tried my best to train my kids in the technique of, cleaning up as you go, which makes things so much easier to managed. But do you think I can get this idea to sit well with my children – absolutely NOT!

Let’s see what we are up against, but I will warn you and apologise for the state of the bathroom in the before shots.

The stuff you can not see in the above pictures is all the build-up of dust, build-up of make-up on the counter-top, the soap scum coated to the glass and basically a lot of filth covering the tiles, taps etc. We have seen a lot worse in our time, and obviously the older a bathroom is can also present problems with getting that clean look.

It’s very easy to get the clean smell, as you know many people associate the smell of chemicals as being clean. And this is how much of our competitors get away with providing the services they do because most people think the same. At the Redgum Cleaning Company, we use products, but just not like most of our competitors do, and where possible our products are environmentally friendly and have a low to non toxic element to them. Sometimes, something as simple as water is the best cleaner.

When we need to deal with mould and the like, we do engage the stronger stuff which provides that strong scent. On normal occasions we use products provided by our Local Partners – SpotGo –  All SpotGo chemicals in SpotGo premium household cleaning products are free of toxic chemicals. All SpotGo products are free of alkyl phenol ethoxylate common in low quality old technology cleaning products. Alkyl phenol ethoxylates are persistent environmental polluters causing hormone dysfunction in mammals and fish and whilst still available in Australia have been banned for use in the more progressive European nations.

So if you’re into cleaning your own home, please get rid of those harsh toxic cleaners that the major supermarkets are ripping you off on, and get over to the SpotGo website, check out their range and get yourself some premium products that do a better job without having to use much product to get it done fast. If I was to just recommend one of their products, I would suggest getting yourself some Citrus All Purpose.

Now, let’s see what the results are like when we applied the Redgum Cleaning Company touch combined with SpotGo products.

Now that’s how a bathroom should be presented, clean and smelling..well, clean. Much better than the teenage/adult personal odour that engulfed the room before – hey kids!
