Showers feel wonderful, unless yours is dirty and dingy. But don’t worry, there are a number of ways to keep a sparkling clean shower throughout the year in San Marcos, Texas.
Catch Discoloration Early
Let’s get the most involved solution out of the way first. Discoloration is the most difficult shower stain to get rid of and can make it difficult to keep your shower looking clean. Most often, discoloration comes from your water supply. It’ll leave brown smudges on your shower surface and other areas.
Discoloration is often the product of corroded pipes or problems with your water heater. The best way to solve this problem is to schedule a plumbing professional to check your pipes and fix the issue before it ruins your shower’s interior.
Use White Vinegar
White vinegar is your shower’s best friend. Spray it on your glass shower door to prevent the door from fogging. Use it as a cleaner to eradicate black microbial growth in your caulk lines. Pour it down your drain to prevent bad odors.
Our favorite use is placing some vinegar in a plastic baggie and attaching it to your shower head. This will melt away any mineral build up on your nozzle, improving your water flow with little effort.
Utilize Spray-and-Leave Cleaners
Spray-and-leave cleaners are especially handy for showers with glass doors or if your water supply is heavy with minerals. They’re a great way to keep your shower fresh in between deep cleans. Simply spray on the product after a hot shower and leave it. These products are designed to prevent the buildup of hard-water stains and soap scum.
Pumping issues can make it hard to keep your shower clean, especially when they create discoloration. Give Woods Comfort Systems a call at 512-842-5066 to set up a plumbing consultation today.
