Use the Right Cleaning Solution

When it comes to cleaning your shower or bath, it’s essential to use the right cleaning solution. Avoid using any abrasive or acidic cleaners that could damage the surface. Instead, opt for a mild, non-abrasive cleaner that’s specifically designed for natural stone surfaces. Before applying the cleaner, always test it on an inconspicuous area to ensure it won't damage the surface.

Wipe Surfaces Immediately

After applying the cleaning solution, wipe surfaces clean immediately with a soft, dampened sponge or cloth. Don’t allow the cleaner to soak, as it could damage the surface. Rinse and dry any overspray that lands on nearby surfaces. If you let the surfaces air dry after cleaning, you may notice water spots, which can be difficult to remove.

Remove Soap Scum Regularly

Soap scum can build up on your shower or bath over time if not cleaned regularly. To remove soap scum, you can use a mild, non-abrasive cleaner or a mixture of vinegar and warm water. Apply the cleaner to a soft sponge or cloth and gently scrub the surface. Rinse thoroughly with water and dry with a clean cloth.

Be Careful with Sharp Objects

Showers and baths are durable, but they can still scratch if you're not careful. Avoid using sharp objects like razors or metal tools on the surface, as they can scratch the finish. Also, be careful not to drop any heavy objects like shampoo bottles or soap dishes on the surface, as they can cause chips or cracks.

Schedule Professional Maintenance

To keep your shower or bath looking new, it’s essential to schedule regular professional maintenance. A professional cleaning and sealing service can help remove any stubborn stains or buildup that you can’t remove yourself. They can also help to repair any chips, cracks, or other damage to the surface.
