Cleaning Your Wet Room Tiles

Cleaning your Wet Room Tiles

Installing a wet room can really transform your bathroom – as well as providing a beautiful aesthetic, they also can be the best choice for easy cleaning.  

Soap scum can quickly gather inside showers, but one of the benefits of tiling these areas in a wet room is the fact that they are resistant to moisture – the smooth surface of the tiles can be easily wiped clean, provided they are regularly maintained. To ensure your wet room tiles are kept sparkling, implement a cleaning routine to preserve their condition.

Prepare and Protect

When using any type of cleaning product, even natural ones, it’s important to wear protective clothing to avoid damaging your skin. Wearing good quality rubber gloves that cover your forearm will help ensure that your hands don’t come into contact with the cleaning solution you’re using. It’s also important to make sure your bathroom is well ventilated so that you’re not breathing in concentrated chemical fumes whilst cleaning.

Hot and Steamy

In order to loosen any grime that’s deep set on your tiles, it’s advised to run your shower on a high temperature so that the room becomes steamy. The steam allows the pores of various materials to open, much like your face during a beauty regimen. Steaming will make the whole cleaning process much easier, so that you’ll be less likely to spend ages scrubbing away.

Products and Cleaners

You can use a variety of solutions on your tiles, but make sure you dilute your cleaner according to the instructions on the packaging. This will help you avoid damage to your tiles and keep you safe as well. If your bathroom has been prepped with steam, you should only need to wipe your surfaces clean with warm water and a mild to medium-concentrate solution. Make sure to use a non-abrasive sponge or cloth, as you don’t want to scratch your tiles’ finish.

Grime in the Grout

The smaller crevices are always the hardest to clean, which is why you may need to spend more time on your tile’s grouting. Mould and mildew tends to gather in this area, so you may want to arm yourself with a toothbrush or something similar to target these spots. Using bleach or grout-specific cleaners (again according to instructions) should work a treat, and with regular cleaning you can easily avoid any discolouration or mould from growing.
