Why Clean Your Toilet?

It is a given that your toilet should be clean. But why is this? A dirty toilet can cause a lot of problems for your bathroom and your home. It can create bacteria that can get on your toothbrush and other surfaces of your bathroom.

It is important to clean your toilet the proper way. For that you will need the following;

● Toilet bowl cleaner.
● Toilet brush.
● Gloves.
● Microfiber cloth.

You are going to want to use these items once per week, if not more. You should clean in and around the bowl, on the bottom of the toilet itself and under the lid. This will help create fewer bacteria and it will keep your bathroom smelling fresh and clean. It will also keep germs at bay.

The American Standard Toilet

As we take a more in-depth look at the American Standard toilet, we will see that there are more features about it that make it more desirable. First, it has a top-rated performance in flushing. In recent testing, it received the highest rating for maximum performance tests. It can take on 1,000 grams of solid waste in just one flush, making it dependable for one-flush routines.

It has water-saving abilities. It meets EPA WaterSense criteria with an impressive 1.28 gallons per flush. This can save 20 percent more water than that of a traditional 1.6 GPF toilet. This makes it a great ecological and economical investment. The less water you and your family use, the more money and energy you will save in the long run.

One feature that this toilet has that a lot of others do not, is the PowerWash rim. This technology allows air to become trapped in the rim. This allows pressurized water to wash the bowl. This means that your toilet bowl will stay cleaner for a longer period of time. There is a 3-inch opening that allows water access into the bowl at a rate of 80 percent quicker than that of a traditional toilet.

To go with the PowerWash rim is the EverClean surface. This technology is applied to both the inside and outside of the toilet. This helps combat the growth of bacteria that can stain your toilet and create odors.

Lastly is the extra-wide flush valve. This 3-inch chemical-resistant valve allows water to get into the bowl at a quicker rate of speed. This creates a cleaner flush to go with the PowerWash rim technology.
