How do I clean and maintain my wet room?

Regular Cleaning #

  1. After Each Use:
    • Rinse the entire area to wash away soap residue and hair.
    • Use a squeegee or dry towel to wipe down walls, floors, and fixtures, preventing water spots and mildew.
  2. Weekly Deep Cleaning:
    • Use a non-abrasive cleaner suitable for the surfaces in your wet room (tiles, glass, etc.). Avoid harsh chemicals.
    • Clean the showerhead, faucets, and any other metal fixtures with a suitable cleaner. For mineral deposits, a vinegar solution can be effective.
    • If there are glass panels, clean them with a glass cleaner to keep them clear and free of streaks.

Drain Maintenance #

  • Regularly clear the drain of hair and debris to prevent clogs.
  • Use a mild drain cleaner or a baking soda and vinegar mixture, followed by hot water, for deeper cleaning.

Floor Care #

  • Wet rooms often have non-slip flooring. Clean it with a soft brush and non-abrasive cleaner to maintain the non-slip properties without causing wear.

Water Sealing and Silicone Joints #

  • Regularly check and maintain the water sealing and silicone joints to prevent leaks and water damage.
  • Replace or repair any damaged seals or caulking.

Ventilation #

  • Ensure good ventilation after use to reduce moisture, a common cause of mold and mildew. Use an exhaust fan or leave the door open.

Regular Inspections #

  • Periodically inspect all components of the wet room, including fixtures, seals, and tiling, for signs of wear or damage.

Special Features #

  • If your wet room has additional features like underfloor heating or special shower systems, follow the manufacturer’s maintenance instructions.

Maintaining a wet room requires diligence in cleaning and regular inspections to prevent water damage and mold growth. By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your wet room remains a functional, hygienic, and aesthetically pleasing space in your home.
