Whilst nobody looks forward to getting on their hands and their knees to clean a shower, those which have been designed with the physically impaired or mobility-conscious user in mind are much easier to clean than traditional designs.
This is one of the major reasons that disabled showers are actually becoming more popular amongst a wide range of users, no matter their physical state. Walk-in showers of this kind also offer luxurious styling and very effortless entry and are ideal for bathrooms of all designs and styles.
The Importance of Keeping Your Shower Clean
Like any other piece of equipment or furniture in your home, you need to make sure that you keep your shower clean in order to ensure that it works as reliably as possible. This can also increase the working life of your shower, meaning that it can last longer than an ill-maintained alternative.
If you can, try to fit your shower cleaning into your monthly routine. Whether you’re able to clean it yourself, or get a friend or family member to clean it, or you require professional help, looking after your shower is the key to ensuring its longevity.
Cleaning Your Disabled Shower
To clean your shower, you don’t need any truly specialised items. Instead, all you need is a sponge, a bristle brush and any cleaner of your choice – choosing a scented one can often be a good choice as it will stop your shower from smelling of unpleasant chemicals afterwards. It is always best to choose a cleaning agent that isn’t too strong, as these may provoke skin reactions or be unpleasant to deal with whilst cleaning the shower.
- Create The Perfect Surroundings – Although you don’t need to schedule time to clean your shower – you can do it whenever you want – one of the best times to clean it is whilst you’re actually in the shower yourself. As you are already steaming the inside of the shower, any grime or grease in place will already be loosened, and dirt will be more easily movable.
Another advantage is that you don’t need to avoid getting wet during the procedure, which can be really awkward – especially if you aren’t completely physically fit.
- Clean The Shower – During your shower, take some time to use your sponge to wipe down the glass – do it evenly and this will help to reduce the likelihood of streaks developing. After this, use your bristled brush to clean between the tiles, scrub in the corners and any other spaces which your sponge cannot reach.
Lastly, scrub around the edges of the drain and give the walls a good wipe down after moving the shower head.
