The Best Care For Shower Trays And Enclosures

Once you have installed your enclosure and the tray, you are well on your way to getting a lot of relaxation in your shower. The enclosure provides you with an area to play around with water without fearing leakage while the tray offers you a place to stand and a channel for the dirty water to leave the bathroom.

As time goes by, you will begin to see some changes in both the enclosure and tray, and you can keep these changes in manageable levels by carrying out the following care procedures.

The enclosure walls

The enclosure walls are most probably made of glass and this is a very good thing. This is because it is very easy to take care of glass and all you need to do is to wipe it after every shower. This is because leaving them wet will encourage the settling and sticking of dirt which might very well cause staining. In addition, this wiping action makes it easy for the general cleaning, which you can carry out once in a week depending on how dusty your locality is.

For more care, you can buy a squeegee for use when cleaning the glass as it will be more effective than using a piece of cloth. Additionally, there are some detergents that are designed for use in glass cleaning and you can always buy these for use. Take note when using them as very strong detergents will harm the shower tray and you do not want that to happen.

The shower trays

Shower trays and enclosures are used together and this means that when you take care of one, you must take care of the other. If your tray is white in colour, the need to clean it on a regular basis is more of a necessity to retain the good colour. You will need to buy a scrubbing brush and some tray cleaning detergent to achieve this.

It is important to mention herein that the detergent need not be too strong, as it may corrode the tray surface. The surface of the tray is made of an anti-slip material and corroding this layer will increase the risk of you falling while in the shower. In addition, be careful not to scrub too hard, as this will increase the corrosion.

When you notice a stain, try to soak it for a few hours. It should come off easily with gentle scrubbing. This will leave your shower trays and enclosures in mint condition ready for your next shower.
