. When caring for your marble shower it is important to remember a few simple rules.

First off, water and marble don’t get along, especially polished marble. Water deposits soap, oil, and other elements into your stone which becomes soap scum. Mold and mildew can also grow on marble and start to eat through the stone seal. Even something like bar soap can affect your marble, and make marble cleaning more difficult.

When you use bar soap in your marble shower you are converting a solid to a liquid during your scrubbing then allowing it to convert back again to a solid as it dries. After each shower, you should squeegee the walls and glass. This practice will prevent nasty hard water stains from occurring over time and will save you money by reducing the need for professional marble cleaning services in Manhattan Beach.

Marble Shower Cleaning Tools

Here are some tools to clean your marble shower that you should use on a daily basis.

  • Nylon Handle Brush
  • Small nylon grout brush or a toothbrush
  • A marble safe, pH neutral cleaner
  • Microfiber towels
  • Appropriate Safety Gear

Check all grout areas carefully.  If you have gaps or missing grout repair it as soon as possible to avoid water damage.  Be sure to check your marble surfaces for water absorption. If you have dark tiles that once were light, especially in high water exposure areas, it is time to apply a stone sealer.

Squeegee walls and glass after each shower. Dry corners and edges to remove water. This will help prevent mold. Leave the shower door open and if possible and window open to allow the surface to dry.

If you have marble, don’t let this list of instructions daunt you.  Marble is a beautiful stone, but like a lot of beautiful things, it requires some effort to keep it beautiful.  If you feel marble cleaning is beyond you, then it is time for you to make a phone call.
