Your bathroom is one of the most often used rooms in the house, so it is always important to keep it in top shape, even if you are not expecting visitors. A shower cubicle is an excellent addition to your bathroom and one of the solutions that you can do to maintain the cleanliness of your bathroom. You may already experience showering in an open shower, spraying water and soap all over the bathroom, which leads to soap scum, watermarks, mould and bacteria.
Keeps the bathroom clean
Shower pods keep water inside the pod, so it doesn’t splash all over the bathroom and give you a hard time to wipe down and dry. A shower pod is an excellent addition to a bathroom regardless of size, but it is most suitable for small bathrooms because they are compact and only occupy a small area while still giving you ample space to move inside the shower. Watermarks look annoying, and when you don’t wipe them right away, they harden and become hard to remove. Having a pod prevents this from happening.
Prevents mould and bacteria from causing illnesses
A damp, wet and moist environment is the perfect breeding ground for mildew and bacteria that can wreak havoc on your respiratory system. Not cleaning and drying the entire bathroom after each use is the ideal opportunity for these culprits to propagate inside the bathroom. They love the areas that are always damp, which are the shower and sink. Having a shower pod provides you with only a small area to look out for mould and bacteria.
Keeps musty smells at bay
Mould also produce a musty smell. A damp environment also makes a room smell terrible. Having a pod will prevent this from happening, as you can easily wipe it dry with a clean cloth every time after you shower.
Keeps your bathroom ready for visitors
There is nothing more embarrassing than having unexpected guests over to your house, and your bathroom looks like a disaster – mouldy, musty, dirty and wet. If your bathroom is always dry and clean, you don’t need to panic when visitors come unannounced.
Your bathroom needs adequate ventilation to stay dry and clean. An exhaust fan gets rid of the hot air and smell inside the bathroom. If you don’t have one yet, you may want to consider installing one. You can also keep the bathroom door open after you shower to let the air out and to help speed up the drying process. If you have windows in the bathroom, keep them open as well. Without proper ventilation, the bathroom will stay damp, which will subsequently result in the development of mould and bacteria.
There are a lot of commercial cleaning agents that you can use for your bathroom, but it is better to use natural ingredients to keep your bathroom clean and dry. Kitchen staples such as lemon, vinegar and baking soda are your best bets for keeping your shower heads and taps clean and rust-free, and your sink and floors shining.
