Have you heard people saying the bathroom is the busiest room in your house? They could be right. Some popular medical websites state the average bathroom contains thousands of germs and viruses.

Hang on though! Don’t go and lock your family out of the bathroom just yet. There are a few simple steps you can do to prevent the spread of germs and viruses.

Healthy Smiles

First off, keep your toothbrushes dry and clean. Be sure to keep it up on a countertop, away from any splashing water where it can get contaminated. Also, keep each toothbrush separated from the others to prevent cross contamination. If the toothbrushes touch, that can increase the odds of germs spreading from brush to brush. Be sure to regularly replace your toothbrush for a new one as well.

Raising The Bar

Switch out your bar soap with liquid soap.   Experts say bar soap can hold residue from soap dishes and bacteria from the person who used it last. Liquid soaps come in self-contained pumps so each person gets a fresh dose of soap with every pump.

Cleaning The Bathroom

You should clean your bathroom on a consistent basis.   You will need to clean more frequently if you have a large family and a large amount of traffic through the bathroom.

There are a lot of cleaning products out there, but you want to make sure you are choosing the right cleaners for the right surface. Using the wrong cleaning product on certain types of stone will damage them.

You will first need to determine the type of countertop you have. If you have a stone countertop, you will want to use a stone safe cleaner like Marblelife’s Marble and Travertine Cleaner. There is also a stone safe granite cleaner and tile cleaner available. Using the right countertop cleaner will ensure you don’t damage your stone while trying to keep your family healthy.

Another area people tend to overlook is the tub and shower area. Mold, mildew and bacteria love to grow in this environment. To control the growth of these unhealthy elements, clean your tub and shower with a professional grade mold and mildew remover like Marblelife’s Mold & Mildew Remover. This is the same product used by the largest stone care company in the North America.

Now that you have clean countertops and a clean bath and shower, it’s time to move onto the bathroom floor. To keep your floor looking its best, use Marblelife’s Tile & Grout cleaner. This will help keep germs and viruses off your floor and spreading when people walk in and out of your bathroom.

You may want to consider having your bathroom floor sealed with a professional sealer too. Your local Marblelife office can clean and seal this area of you home or even your commercial location to help prevent the spread of germs and viruses. This service has been used by some of the top medical facilities in the country. If it is good enough for them, it is worth doing for your own family. They offer both a penetrating sealer and an advanced sealer that is colored to match your grout. The advantages are that when their ColorSeal Technology is applied you can visually see areas that are sealed or need further attention. This makes this process unique in being able to signal the floor has indeed been properly sealed. Doesn’t hurt that you can also change colors to match you new tiles, so safe, clean and accents well.

These are just a few simple tips to helping you keep your family happy and healthy throughout the cold and flu season.
