Regular cleaning and maintenance of your shower walls is necessary for various reasons. For one, it keeps your shower walls clean and hygienic. Second, it helps to maintain the pristine and like new look of your shower walls. Lastly, this helps to protect your shower walls from damage and make it last longer. Suffice to say that if you want to protect your investment, then regular upkeep of your shower walls should be part of your routine and schedule.
Cleaning and Maintenance of Tile Shower Walls
Tile shower walls can be easily wiped clean with a damp rag, and perhaps some detergent when necessary. It is the grout though, that will require more attention. The grout is basically more porous than the tile itself. As such, it absorbs moisture much quicker than the tile. This can lead to mould and mildew growth. This does not only ruin the look of your shower walls, but it also poses some health risks.
Thus, you should include a good grout cleaner along with your cleaning materials. You should also have the grout properly sealed to keep moisture out. If the grout is damaged or has chipped, it must be replaced.
One good thing about tile shower walls is that if one tile is damaged, you don’t have to replace the whole wall. Instead, you can simply have the damaged tile removed replaced with a new one.
Cleaning and Maintenance of Acrylic Shower Walls
In most cases, acrylic shower walls are easier to clean and maintain than tile shower walls. All you need to do is wipe them down with a damp cloth as you would with tile shower walls. However, when it comes to cleaning soap scum, be sure to use a non-abrasive cleaner. This is to prevent any scratch marks from being made on the acrylic shower wall. Remember, even if high quality acrylic shower walls made by plastic fabricators in Sydney are coated, they are still prone to scratching to some extent.
The biggest problem with acrylic shower walls is the replacement. When you have acrylic shower walls installed, they are usually installed as one large piece. Thus, when a portion of the acrylic shower wall is damaged, you only have two option left. One, you can have the whole shower wall replaced. Two, you can learn to live with the damage.
