To worry that hoovering the bathroom is unhygienic

I have a guy painting my bathroom today and when I came back from the shops he was hoovering the floor where he'd been doing some sanding.

AIBU to feel a bit squeamish at the thought of hoovering my kitchen and the rest of the house with a hoover that's been used near where the toilet's been flushed?

For once really hope I get told I'm being daft.

Um yeah, you're being very very daft.

Dermymc Thu 16-Aug-18 16:04:02

WTF of course you are being daft. How do you normally clean your bathroom?

Oh for goodness sake.

I normally wash it with eater and disinfectant.

Yes, you are being daft. You should put the lid down when you flush the toilet anyway.

V daft lol

Yes you are being daft. Its easier to mop before vacuuming though. Mop, use the wet mop broom style then when its dry vac up the detritus.

Yes, you're daft. smile I regularly hoover dust from my bathroom fittings. Hoovers are meant to clear crap off floors and other places. Just don't drop the nozzle down the toilet pan!

Charles what now?

MrsTerryPratchett Thu 16-Aug-18 16:05:37

Eating it is far more unhygienic grin

WTF? How do you pick up fluff and pubes if you don't hoover the bathroom?

Lydiaatthebarre Thu 16-Aug-18 16:05:54

Water I meant. Yeah my mum's just told me I'm daft as well.

What exactly do you think is going be the problem with using the same hoover for the whole house.

I sweep my bathroom and kitchen floors and use a mop to wash them. I don't have separate brooms and mops for bathrooms and kitchen.

I do hoover in there when I'm too lazy to sweep but I do occasionally have the same thought. Then I tell myself off for being daft.

Completely different issue, but please take into account that if you hoover very fine dust, such as brick dust, etc it can clog the motor of the vacuum cleaner and ruin it.
A bit of sanding dust is probably fine, though.

Lydiaatthebarre Thu 16-Aug-18 16:07:40

I always put the lid down but I'm not sure others do. Does that change anyone's opinion shock

You’re being daft

You’re being daft. Empty the hoover if it makes you feel so squeamish confused. Pat him on the back for actually tidying up for you, I’ve never experienced this from a workman.

MrsJayy Thu 16-Aug-18 16:12:42

I am assuming your floor was not swimming in pee before the hoovering? I have a hairy dog i have to hoover everywhere you are being a bit daft it is honestly normal to hoover a bathroom floor
