"Cleaning a toilet – what could be easier, right? Wrong. Toilets are one of the top 3 cleaning complaints any maid service owner will likely receive" - Regina DeCorte
Safety always comes first, so the first step is to move all items from the top of the tank and base of the toilet to a safe area. Items can include: tissue boxes, room deodorizer sprays, and even the toilet plunger! Get them away from the toilet and to a safe area, where they won't accidentally fall or get knocked down. Then pop on a pair of safety goggles and disposable gloves to keep eyes and hands protected.
For more ways to tackle this issue Annie Farron from Annie at Your Service has some great advice:
Make sure the items you relocated at the beginning are clean and then return them to their original spots. Add a nice finishing touch by creasing the toilet tissue in the wall mounted dispenser into a triangle. This will give it a hotel-style look and says "a job well done" to our clients.
Clients will often arrive home, go straight into the bathroom and check the base of the toilet to see whether it’s been properly cleaned. If any residual dirt is found it can set off a chain reaction of further inspection and complaints about the rest of the home cleaning. If you get the toilet cleaned correctly, you’re less likely to hear complaints about other areas of the home.
