Most of us use the shower every day. It is an essential feature of the home and this means that it needs a lot of care and upkeep. How we use our shower and the things that we decide to put in them can do a lot of the health of your shower. What do we mean though? Grout Restoration Works has cleaned many showers and have seen the damage that shower caddies and sitting bottles can cause. They can greatly reduce the health of your shower without you ever knowing it or seeing it. How is that possible though?
Shower organizers can be a little tricky because they either use suction or a sticky backing in order to hold it in place. The trouble comes though in the placement of where you put the shower caddy. Water and moisture are what causes mold and mildew in any place, but this is especially true when it comes to suction cups or a sticky backing. In removing many shower caddies, we have seen the mold and mildew that has grown underneath and around what is holding it to your shower wall. This can be shocking knowing that even in an immaculate shower you can have mold growing without even realizing it.
There is another aspect to consider as well when it comes to the health of your shower, that is rust. Rust can easily form when you have a metal shower caddy. This is also true if you keep a metal shaving bottle sitting in there. Once you have rust marks on your tub or shower floor there really is nothing that will take it off. With that in mind, it’s important that you get the right shower caddy.
When you think about getting a shower caddy, you’ll want to do research and make sure that you’re getting an organizer that can’t rust. After you have narrowed it down this much, you’ll then want to narrow it down even more so by making sure you get a shower organizer that uses suction to keep it stable. When having to choose between a sticky pad or suction cups, you want to pick the one that can remove to clean. This will help to make sure that mold and mildew doesn’t begin to grow.
