We asked our maids to share their best tips on common bathroom cleaning challenges. Here are the professional bathroom cleaning tips they shared plus every pet-owner's problem... getting pet urine out of the carpet.
1. Keep a small vacuum near the bathroom and give the floor and any carpets a quick once over every day.
2. Use a small squeegee after your morning shower to slow the development of water marks on glass and walls.
3. Keep a deodorizer, or a fresh candle, in the bathroom for a good scent.
4. A simple nylon netting over the drain in the shower or tub can significantly reduce hair clogs.
How Do You Unclog Shower Heads?
It’s a common bathroom cleaning issue – a low-flow shower head that isn’t designed to be low-flow. Fortunately, unclogging a shower head is easy with our professional and safe cleaning tips.
Simply remove the shower head, and place it into a mixture of vinegar and hot water for about 15 minutes. This will loosen the calcium and other materials clogging the mechanism and allow you to experience a full force flow once again! It’s that easy. Repeat monthly and you'll never deal with this problem again.
These are just some of the tips we have for keeping a bathroom clean. Our years of professional cleaning have taught us a lot more, and the best way to maintain a bathroom is to clean it consistently.

How To Get Pet Urine Stains Out Of Carpet
`There are a few sites online that advise the use of a vinegar and water solution to get pet urine stains out of carpet. While that may work to get the stain out the Humane Society warns that the strong odor of vinegar may "encourage your pet to reinforce the urine scent mark in that area."
Other sites suggest you rent a steam cleaner to clean the carpet. Wrong again! "The heat will permanently set the stain and the odor by bonding the protein into any man-made fibers," informs the Humane Society.
So what should you do? If the stains are old, your best bet is to call a reputable professional carpet cleaner. If you don't know a good carpet cleaner in St Paul, we suggest St. Paul's Best carpet cleaners .
Steam Away Stains In Your Microwave
All you need is a lemon, vinegar and a measuring cup. Squeeze the lemon into a measuring cup, pour quarter a cup of white vinegar into it and dilute it with a pint of water. Microwaving the mixture for not less than 3 minutes, then keep the door close for at least for 10 minutes to soften the caked-on grunge inside. Finally, wipe your microwave with a paper towel. The gunk will wipe off easily. Remember to wipe the inner side of the door and then leave it open for fresh air to circulate.
Dusting Your Bathroom Exhaust Fan
Have you ever thought about dusting the exhaust fan in the bathroom? A lot of people don’t. But it collects dust and dirt, just like a ceiling fan does. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem as easy to clean as a ceiling fan. Surprise! It actually is. Compressed air which comes in the form canned air is the easiest way we’ve found to clean out the exhaust fan in the bathroom. It’s also a good idea wear a mask when doing this as the dust is sure to fall.
Keep The Metal Faucets, Handles And Taps Sparkling
Do your metal faucets, handles and taps look a bit dingy? Have they lost their luster? Want that “new” look back? No problem. It’s easy to get it back with used dryer sheets. Simply rub the metal fixtures with a dryer sheet (I use the ones that have already been used in the dryer) and they’ll sparkle and shine.
How To Clean Pet Hair Off Furniture Or Carpet
A squeegee is surprisingly the best tool when it comes to getting rid of the pet hair efficiently and is faster than other common methods. Whether you’re removing pet hair from the furniture, the bed, the carpet or even your car, your basic shower squeegee works wonders.
Steam Away Bathroom Stains
It’s common for soap grime and hard water to build up on your tub surround/tiles. But it’s really important to clean that off. The more it’s left unattended, the more the surface becomes a fertile breeding ground for bacteria where they feed off the dead skin cells that have landed on your bathroom surfaces.
What you need to do is thoroughly spray the surfaces with a cleaning agent preferably one with a sweet smell. Turn off the fan, turn on your shower to the hottest temperature, and make sure all openings are closed to maximize the steaming effect. Let the steam make the cleaner work on the layers on the surfaces for about 10 minutes (obviously, the larger your bathroom, the longer it will take to steam up your bathroom.) Once it’s hot and steamy in there, go in and wipe the surfaces clean with a dry.
