The good news is that maintaining your granite shower is actually quite simple. Simply make an effort to follow these guidelines on a regular basis. If you have questions, or want help with professional granite care, contact Fuller Stone Care at 310-944-9099 for help.
Spray your granite shower
Spritz your granite with a shower spray particularly made for natural stone every time you take a shower. This will keep soap scum or mildew from building up to the point when cleaning it on your own becomes impossible. It also aids in the reduction of water spots.
Squeegee your granite shower
Allowing standing water to sit on your granite tile is not a smart idea. Use a squeegee to remove extra moisture from the tile after you’ve showered and used your spray. This will remove enough water to allow it to dry naturally.
Scrub your granite shower
Hopefully, the grout used to build your granite tile was mildew and stain resistant. Even so, you’ll have to clean your grout on a regular basis. Scrub the grout lines carefully with a toothbrush after using a non-abrasive, non-acidic cleanser that is appropriate for stone. After rinsing with water, pat dry with a soft towel.
Seal your granite shower
A sealant should have been applied to your granite shower when it was built to help minimize the pores in the stone and prevent water penetration and stains. To keep your granite appearing new and making it simpler to maintain, you should reapply sealant every 12 to 18 months. Get a professional stone care contractor like Fuller Stone Care to seal your granite for the finest results.
Do you want to save time cleaning?
Allowing soap scum to accumulate is one of the quickest ways to create unsightly granite. The component that makes bar soap solid causes soap scum. Switch to a liquid soap or shower gel if you’re weary of dealing with soap scum. This allows you to take a break from daily cleaning.
