Showers may be the most difficult area to maintain in a home. In addition, to being a moist environment, we introduce additional variables such as water quality (rust, hard water), scented soaps, shampoos, moisturizers and conditioners, plus mold, soap spatter, soap scum and we quickly realize its not just about a little dirt. That said, we can help. Good shower maintenance means maintaining seals on grout and stone to keep all contaminants on the surface where they are easier to clean and remove (than when they are allowed to seep into grout pores). Then selecting appropriate surface specific cleaners designed for effectiveness without doing damage – or depositing waxes, oils or acids. As we like our personal hygiene products, from time-to-time we may need to address their potential shower unfriendly aspects in which cases we have products for that as well. When in doubt call.
MARBLELIFE Shower Care Products have been developed and optimized over 30 years of field service assisting our clients in addressing issues that were beyond the capability of a cleaner. 20% of our restoration service business is a direct result of use of an inappropriate cleaner. Damage often appears Dirty. Check out our CLEANER FRUSTRATION page to assess whether you may be looking at damage versus something a cleaner can address. HINT: If you have shower products that are citrus scented, lemon scented, vinegar infused or have attempted to remove hard water stains you have likely damaged your grout seal and will see grout staining issues, or etched your marble. MARBLELIFE can restore your “CLEANABILITY,” but it will require a service. MARBLELIFE products are engineered to be effective without creating damage. Once restored, we can provide custom guidance as to the best way to maintain your beautiful surfaces. Generally, good care begins with maintaining a good seal on stone and grout surfaces so that we keep everything on top of the tile were it is easy to clean-and-disinfect. If your surfaces has gotten away from you give us a call. We can help get it under control, then seal it to keep mold spores out and keep it “cleanable,” before providing you an effective cleaner that will not damage your surface, deposit waxes, oils, or acidic scents that can do damage over time.
