HOW TO CARE FOR WET SURFACES AT HOME

Every home - small, big, apartment, or vacation home - gets damp and dirty. There's not just one way to keep your house clean, dry, and tidy. There's a lot, but tell you what, there is a smarter way to get this job done. We assure you - the more you use them, the easier it gets. If it starts to overwhelm you, don't be. Let's get this one step at a time.

In this article, we will focus more on the wettest area in your house. You will learn how to keep these areas clean and dry along with the most effective and recommended cleaning products from Caesarstone and Lithofin.


The Road to Domestication

Cleaning and maintaining your house can seem like one of the biggest challenging tasks - but it doesn't have to be. You can't clean the entire house all at once. In fact, you don't need to. You can clean specific areas of your house and still maintain high hygiene standards. Start with the Bathroom & Shower followed by the Kitchen and Laundry.


Bathroom and Shower

The bathroom and shower require a deep clean at least twice a week to keep it healthy and safe. No one wants to take a shower in a dirty and damp bathroom or soak themselves in a germ-infested bathtub. A lot of things can go wrong when you don't maintain your bathroom clean. Aside from exposing yourself to harmful bacteria, a dirty bathroom and shower can significantly reduce the lifespan of the stone surfaces around the toilet, shower tub, drains, and faucets.
