Best method for Cleaning a Shower with Soap Buildup

Best Shower Cleaning Method

This method works great for those who maintain their showers right after using them. A lot of showers need a professional Restorative cleaning from companies like FAST FINISH before they can be maintained properly. One of reasons that soap scum forms on your shower surface is because soap bars contain talc, a mineral that can build up on surfaces and become hard to remove once it cures. It is unsightly and continues to build up if not treated. The easiest way to deal with soap scum is to avoid using soap bars altogether – use liquid or gel soaps instead which do not contain talc.  But if you must use soap bars, here are some tips to keep your shower scum free:

  • For best results, clean your shower directly after it's been used and before deposits have a chance to cure and harden - then you need only water and a non scratch scrubbing pad.
  • an acidic cleaner is the best way for removing soap scum; most common soap scum removers contain some form of acid, be sure to read the labels before applying and do not use an acidic cleaner on an acid sensitive surface, such as marble, limestone or travertine.
  • pour warm vinegar into a spray bottle and apply to the affected area. Let it sit for about 30 minutes and scrub with a sponge or brush. Rinse with clean water. Again, vinegar is acidic and not to be used on acid sensitive surfaces.
