The bathroom may not be the most popular place in our home – but it is one of the most used. Can you imagine what life would be like if we didn’t have at least one of them built into our home? I shudder to imagine the type of life that my grandparents had to go through and the mess they were constantly cleaning up.
While plumbing and privacy may have been invented since those dark times one thing still remains the same. The mess that our bathrooms can accrue is crazy. One thing in particular that always seems to stay dirty is the bathtub. It is the thing that everyone uses and each morning we wash off all of the dirt, grime, and even hair that is falling from our bodies.
It is gross to think about so I won’t even bother to go into detail about it. One thing that we need to be thinking about more is what we will do to make sure that it stays clean and free of mildew, scum, and other dirty details. Many people slack off on cleaning their tubs unaware of all of the germs that could be growing inside of it.
Importance Of Cleaning Tubs
It is important to clean your tubs because dark and wet places is the one place where germs tend to thrive in over abundance. The whole place is always wet because it is being used on a daily basis. When mold and mildew is allowed to grow and is not removed it will grow and spread fast.
Before long you will have it everywhere and will have an unusual and rather unbecoming odor coming from the tub that is hard to get rid of with a simple rub down. Also it can hurt the air that you breathe. The mildew can be carried through the air – which means that you and your children are hurting your lungs – which could cause respiratory problems and hurt those with asthma.
