Bathrooms, in particular, require special maintenance so that all of the components are functional and remain in good condition. Bathrooms are complicated and it’s a space that is used several times a day, every day. From getting ready to bathing to looking at yourself in the mirror, it is an environment that sees a lot of action and the vanity especially is an element of this space that is used constantly. In order to be able to use it often and maintain its durability, you must follow a few specific steps to protect this component and be able to use it worry-free.

Cleaning your bathroom vanity is the most obvious step you need to follow because keeping it clean means you can enjoy it for a longer period of time. Don’t use any strong detergents or products that have harsh chemicals because you may damage the material. Scrub the cabinet portion gently with a soft cloth and clean your vanity regularly so that dust and dirt do not build-up.

Your bathroom cabinet should not be placed in a location where the sun will shine on it directly, so select a spot that makes sense visually but remember functionality and practicality matter too and are just as important, so think it through before deciding on where your vanity will be placed. If you ever have to move your bathroom cabinet, do it gently so that you don’t scratch your flooring or ruin the vanity.

The vanity top should be wiped down regularly because this will help keep your bathroom sanitary. Remove any items you store or display on your vanity so that they’re not in the way and use a sponge or rag to remove dust and dirt, including makeup stains and hair, which should never accumulate. Use an appropriate cleaning product that is suitable for your vanity top based on the material you have. Using the wrong product could damage or stain the surface of your vanity counter, so choose wisely based on what your vanity top is made from like marble, stone or concrete, for example.

The cabinets and vanity top are important to clean as are the faucet and sink where bacteria can form. Hard water can leave stains and deposits on the faucet, so use a product that can soften those spots and dissolve them so that you can then wipe them off. Do not let hard water deposits sit for long periods of time because they will become very difficult to remove over time, so act quickly to help your vanity remain in good condition.

Once you’ve cleaned thoroughly and the surface is completely dry, you can place your personal items back on the vanity top and continue to use and enjoy your bathroom once more.
