The Guide to cleaning your shower enclosure
It's amazing the effect a good bathroom cleaner along with a bit of elbow grease can have on your shower enclosure. We have seen shower heads and accessories that require just a little care and attention to be transformed and brought back to look as good as new.
Not only will shower cleaning transform your bathroom but it will also play its part in helping you maintain good health. In fact, some visitors would rather go dirty than step into a mould and dirt-ridden shower enclosure. Let your guests talk about your beautiful bathroom and not the unsightly, mould filled shower. Please study this guide for some tips that will help you keep your shower sparkling.
Regular Shower Cleaning
Due to the damp, moist environment, the bathroom is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria and mould. It is essential that you try and maintain a good airflow through your bathroom and if necessary install an air extractor fan. Even with a well ventilated bathroom you will need to regularly clean your shower enclosure.
If you let your shower enclosures deteriorate too far then the chrome plated parts of the shower may eventually get affected making it difficult to get back to a shiny chrome finish.
Shower Cleaning - Maintaining a healthy environment
Mold grows in a moist environment and can be found all around us. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) mold poses a threat to health. Some people are more sensitive and prone to the health concerns associated with mold while others are more resistant. The CDC states that the health risks of breathing when in a moldy environment include: coughing, sneezing, nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, wheezing, eye irritation and skin irritation. In fact, the effect for people who have mold allergies or lung illnesses could be at serious risk and should completely avoid mold environments.
The CDC notes that health risks may be present if you can smell or see mold spots in your shower. These are most common on silicone sealant and on the grout between shower tiles. Regular shower cleaning can help reduce any health risks associated with a dirty shower.
