Top tips on how to maintain a spotless washroom with plastic wall cladding.
How hygienic is your bathroom or washroom? Keeping your bathroom clean and tidy is vital for your personal health and wellbeing and that of your employees. Germs can hide in all sorts of places and they especially prefer and environment which is warm and moist to breed. With that in mind it is easy to see why the common bathroom is a haven for all types of nasty bacteria which can cause numerous forms of illness if you don’t keep the area clean. Studies have shown that a dirty bathroom sink can host more bacteria than the toilet and that many types of bacteria can grow on any bathroom surface, including your walls and ceilings including the common Streptococci bacteria which causes sore throats, infections and fevers. The implications for businesses are even more severe. You could be leaving yourself open to litigation if you are seen to be irresponsible with hygiene requirements so don’t take the risk.
It’s not all about health however. A dirty looking bathroom is sure to put off anyone who visits your home and can even lower the value of it. The fact remains that we spend an awful lot of time in our bathrooms and as a result we should look after them. Mouldy bathroom tiles and walls are an eye-sore yet a surprisingly familiar sight for a lot of homeowners. Mould is caused by excess condensation in your bathroom and can turn from a small spot to large growth in next to no time.
If your bathroom tiles have been taken over by a colony of mouldy bacteria it might be time for a change. Plastic wall cladding in your bathroom could solve many of your problems. When a mould infection takes hold you will need to clean an area three times as large in order to fully decontaminate the surface. Bathroom tiles are notoriously difficult to clean and mould will easily infect the grouting between the tiles. Retiling is an expensive option and not a long term solution. Plastic wall cladding is smooth and easy to clean which means you can effectively remove bacteria and keep the area contaminant free.
Bathroom mould lives off organic materials and importantly, water. If you remove one of these the mould cannot survive. Water easily passes over plastic wall cladding leading to drier surfaces and less chance of infection. Plastic wall cladding is excellent for bathrooms, shower enclosures and washrooms and can be a perfect solution.
