Tile can look elegant in your shower. However, it takes some effort to keep a shower tile clean. The key to keeping your tile shower clean is to stay on top of cleaning your shower and work on keeping it clean over time.

#1 Get Rid of Stains Right Away

If you think something was spilled in the shower, like perhaps you were trying to wash something down the drain, you want to deal with the stain right away. Wipe up the material that caused the stain and flush the area with water. Never let a substance that could stain, such as red wine, soak into the tile for an extended period.

#2 Keep the Air Circulating

Make sure you keep the air circulating when you take a shower. Use the exhaust fan in your bathroom and run it before you take a shower and continue to run the exhaust fan until all the moisture is gone from the air.

When you fail to run the exhaust fan, you create a moist environment in your bathroom, where mold and mildew are more likely to develop and grow in the porous space left behind by the moisture in your bathroom.

#3 Clean up After a Shower

Next, after you take a shower, you are going to want to clean up your shower. Keep a squeegee in your shower. Use the squeegee to remove moisture from all surfaces in your shower. Start at the top of your shower and bring the squeeze down as low as you can. Work around your shower until you have removed as much water as possible from your shower. Removing water from the shower will help prevent mold and mildew as well.

It is also a good idea to spray down your shower with a mist of vinegar and water. This mixture will help keep your tiles clean and will prevent mold and mildew from growing in your shower.

#4 Use Gentle Cleaning Solutions

At least once a month, really scrub the tiles in your bathroom. When you do, don't go with the harshest cleaner you can think of first. Instead, start with the simplest cleaner that you can use. One of the simplest cleaners you can use would be a mixture of baking soda and water or a mixture of baking soda, vinegar, and water. These natural cleaners should help remove any built-up grime on tiles that are well taken care of.

If you stay on top of cleaning the tiles in your shower, you shouldn't have to engage in deep cleaning of your bathroom shower tiles. For more information, get in touch with an interior cleaning service such as Fresh Start Cleaning.
