Keeping Your Shower in its Best Shape
It’s important to keep your shower looking new for a number of reasons. First, it’s one of the most used rooms in your home and it deserves to look its best. Secondly, a new shower can add value to your home if you ever decide to sell. And finally, maintaining your shower will help extend its life so you don’t have to replace it as often.
Here are 5 tips to keep your shower looking new:
1. Clean it regularly
You should be cleaning your shower at least once a week to prevent soap scum and mildew build-up. Use a mild cleaner and scrub the walls and floor with a soft brush. Rinse well and dry completely after each cleaning.
2. Protect the surfaces
To help protect your shower from scratches and stains, apply a clear sealant or coating to the tile, grout, glass, metal, and plastic surfaces. Reapply every 6 months or as needed.
3. Don’t use harsh chemicals
Harsh chemicals can damage your shower’s surfaces so avoid using them whenever possible. If you must use a chemical cleaner, be sure to rinse well afterwards and ventilate the area by opening a window or running an exhaust fan.
4. Keep it dry
After each shower, squeegee the walls and glass door to remove excess water. This will help prevent soap scum build-up and mildew growth. Be sure to also open up the door or window to allow air circulation which will help keep things dry.
5. Repair any damage promptly
If any of the surfaces in your shower are damaged (e.g., cracked tile, chipped paint), repair them as soon as possible to prevent further damage and deterioration.
