Sparkling Bathrooms Sell Houses!


Keep your bathrooms in ‘sparkling condition’

Most sellers under estimate how much their bathrooms play a role in how their homes are judged by buyers. It’s true, it may not be as ‘public’ as your living room, your home’s exteriors, landscaping, etc., but your bathrooms can make or break a good sale.


Just imagine a guest who’s impressed with everything he has seen on a tour of your home, but is confronted with a less than clean bathroom Yuk!  An sparkling bathroom contributes enormously to how your home is ‘scored’ by visitors. Here are some ways to keep your home in sparkling condition.


Soap scum is a no no for buyers especially on shower doors, etc.  Here's a tip, coffee filters can be used as an effective cleaner for bathroom mirrors. A simple toothbrush dipped in a solution of baking soda and vinegar can be used for cleaning the grout between tiles.


The combination of baking soda and vinegar works well even for clogged drains – pour a cup of each down the drain, cover the drain with a drain-cover or cloth, followed by pouring boiling water down the drain. Make your taps sparkle by wrapping them in paper towels soaked in vinegar, followed by using a dry paper towel to buff the taps.


We are always willing to give clients tips on what they need to do to "sharpen" the appearance of their home but remember that keeping your bathroom in ‘sparkling condition’ need not be a chore – just make sure that you go about it regularly so that stains do not get a chance to build up.
