Keeping Your Shower Looking Brand-New
Our 5-star rated team of professionals has decades of experience in providing superior quality services that help you get the most out of your bathroom space. If you want to ensure your shower looks new for as long as possible, let us help you figure out where to start.
Here are 6 tips from our experts:
1. Clean Regularly
Your shower will likely be exposed to soap scum and hard water stains, so it’s important to clean it regularly. Use a mild detergent and a nonabrasive sponge or cloth to wipe down the grout and tile surfaces each week. For tougher spots, spray with an all-purpose cleaner and wait at least five minutes before wiping clean.
2. Seal Grout Joints
Grout joints are more prone to wear and tear than other parts of the shower, so it’s important to seal them on a regular basis. Sealing helps prevent water from seeping into the grout lines and causing damage over time. We recommend applying a silicone-based sealant once every 12 months.
3. Use A Shower Squeegee
After each shower or bath, use a squeegee in your shower stall to remove excess water from the surfaces. This will help prevent hard water stains and soap scum buildup. Make sure to squeegee after every use!
4. Replace Old Fixtures
Fixtures like faucets, drains and shower heads can become corroded or rusted over time, so make sure to replace any outdated fixtures when needed. This will ensure your shower remains looking new for years to come.
5. Invest In Durable Materials
When building your new shower, invest in durable materials that will hold up over time such as porcelain tile or natural stone. These materials will resist staining and discoloration better than other options and ensure your shower looks great for years to come.
6. Repaint When Needed
The walls of your shower may need repainting every few years depending on usage and exposure to moisture. Make sure to use paint that is designed specifically for use in wet areas as this will help keep moisture out while ensuring your paint job looks its best for longer.
