Professional Tips to Clean and Maintain your Shower Tub and Tile:

1. Clean Mold Buildup and Stains:

If you find mold and mildew on your shower tile and grout, you need to clean it immediately using a natural stone cleaner. Mold quickly spreads on porous grout and tile causing health hazards. Similarly, stains may form on the flooring and tub surface due to dirt, grime and soap scum. These when left ignored, form into dense stains that are hard to clean.

Floor Cleaner - pFOkUS - Impeeria Deep Clean

Imperia Deep Clean from pFOkUS is a deep cleaner that helps you get rid of stains and mold at the root level. Imperia Deep Clean is the best floor cleaner that performs a thorough cleaning by removing all these deep-rooted stains and mold. It removes hidden mold and mildew from the corners as well as from the porous surfaces.

2. Never Use Abrasives:

Never scrub the shower tile and tub with harsh scrubs or pointed tools as this will remove the sealer coat and will lead to scratches. Metal scrubs or other harsh brushes with pointed bristles can easily destroy the top smooth coat of your floorings and walls and lead to unsightly scratches. You can use the grout brush from pFOkUS to remove the stains from your grout lines.

Our grout brush is not only a very practical cleaning accessory but it also gives your cleaning a boost with its perfectly placed V-notched bristles. The brush swivels perfectly in the direction you require, to give you a seamless cleaning experience.

3. Refrain from Using Acidic Cleaners:

Do not use harsh liquids or acidic cleaners on the tile or tub as these will wear off the existing natural stone sealers and also cause etching.

4. Keep Your Tile and Tub Surface Sealed

Only cleaning mold buildup from natural stone does not guarantee that it will not form again as they are porous. After you clean your tile, you should use a sealant to seal your grout and tile. High-quality stone and grout sealers form a waterproof layer on the surface. As water is no longer absorbed by the porous natural stone, it does not lead to mold growth. But before you seal your stone, you should use a grout sealer to seal the grout lines.

You should seal your tub with Saponi – an impactful tub sealer that offers a strong coating on the surface that never peels.

5. Light Daily Cleaning:

A hard surface sealer provides good protection against moisture. But you also need to clean and wipe your surfaces regularly to keep them free from grime and stains. Use Valore Maintenance Cleaner– a fresh cleaner, which can be used weekly to remove stains and sticky grease on the shower areas.

Valore Maintenance from pFOkUS is an impactful weekly cleaner that can be used to remove superficial stains and mold settling on the sealed surface of your showers.

6. Keep your Shower Tile and Tub Dry:

Natural stone tile and grout are highly porous. They absorb water into their pores and lead to mold and mildew breeding. Moreover, hard water stains and soap scum also lead to stains on the surface. You can prevent such staining and mold breeding by ensuring that your floor is dry after use. After every shower use, you should keep your surfaces dry using absorbent cloths, else you could face issues with hard water stains, soap scum and mold buildup.

    I’m planning on remodeling my bathroom, but I want to make sure that it lasts a long time. It makes sense that having preservers installed on the caulk and the grout. That seems like a good way to ensure that it doesn’t wear down or anything.

      Yes, it is a noble thought to remodel your bathroom in such a way that it lasts for long. But with pFOkUS products, you do not need to remodel, only restore! We have an excellent caulk substitute that replaces the need to use a caulk and then a preserver on it. We recommend you to use Sentura – our flexible solvent-based epoxy/resin built on 1200 psi adhesion that can be used to seal your grout at the corners, instead of using caulk. Caulk is anyways a very temporary solution and tends to wear off or deteriorate after some time. Our Sentura can seal your grout joints at the shower corners permanently, without appearing bulky. It can be pigmented in more than 40 shades so that you can match it to your desired shade. For restoring your grout, we recommend first using Sentura over cracked, missing or damaged grout. You should then use our Grout Sealer Caponi – a titanium solvent-based epoxy/resin sealer that seals the grout and creates a water-proof barrier on it. Caponi is available in more than 40 hues, and so, you can easily match your grout to the surrounding tile surface.
