How Often Should You Clean Your Shower?Nov 22, 2022
Nothing makes you feel fresh and clean quite like stepping out of a hot, steamy shower. However, your shower—be it a bathtub shower combination or walk-in shower—can actually harbor germs and bacteria, making it a rather unclean place to be if you’re not cleaning it often enough. Wondering exactly how often you should be cleaning your shower? While the standard answer is typically at least once a week, in reality it tends to depend on a couple of key factors.
The first item that will determine if you need to clean your shower weekly is how often you use it, as showers that get a lot of traffic will require more frequent cleaning. The next is what your shower is made from, as a shower made with durable surface layers—such as those in the Jacuzzi® Shower Collections available from Jacuzzi Bath Remodel—doesn’t require as much or as intensive cleaning as a traditional shower would.
Why Is Cleaning Your Shower Important?
Whether you’ve been cleaning your shower regularly already or have let this chore slide for a little too long, you might be wondering why cleaning your shower properly matters to begin with. Along with keeping yourself and your family healthy, frequent cleaning can also help ensure that soap scum, germs, and even mildew don’t build up. If you have a Jacuzzi® shower at your home, however, you won’t need to worry so much about bacterial buildup, as the silver ions that are embedded into the shower surface layer protect against the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria.
How to Clean Your Shower
If you have a traditional shower system, cleaning should include a decent scrubbing with a disinfecting agent and sponge. You’ll want to get deep into grout lines if you have tile shower walls, as these small crevices can be a preferred spot for dirt and grime to collect. If you have a shower with a door, this may require cleaning more frequently to prevent soap scum from building up. Shower curtains, on the other hand, should be cleaned about once a month to every three months (cleaning for both enclosures can include spraying them and wiping them down, ensuring that you rinse them off when done).
Cleaning a Jacuzzi® shower, however, can be as simple as wiping down your shower walls and surfaces with mild soap and water. Crafted with a high-density PVC core and two layers of aluminum backing, these innovative shower systems from the renowned Jacuzzi® brand are resistant to fading, scratching, and damage from impacts, not to mention bacteria and mold as mentioned above. Thanks to this exceptional craftsmanship, Jacuzzi® showers are about as low maintenance as a shower can be.
