Natural stone has become an increasingly more popular material choice for the interior of showers. This is because natural stone is gorgeous and has the potential to last a lifetime when cared for properly. Additionally, natural stone showers are much less maintenance than fiberglass showers and ceramic tile showers.

We help homeowners keep their space looking great, while also protecting the natural stone surfaces in their home. In addition to having routine professional maintenance performed to your natural stone, there are things you can do on your own to keep your natural stone showers looking great. Listed below are a few tips you can use to care for your natural stone shower:
Clean The Natural Stone Weekly: Once a week you should be using a stone-safe cleaning product, such as Pure Stone Streakless Countertop & Shower Cleaner. This cleaner will help you to remove and avoid the build-up of grime, water deposits, mildew, and soap scum- that can damage your stone surfaces, leaving them unsightly. It is important to avoid any acidic cleaning products or abrasive cleaning tools on your natural stone surfaces. Most common bathroom and household cleaning products are not safe to use on your natural stone surfaces because they contain ammonia or acidic compounds that can permanently impact the health of your stone in a negative way.
Dry Your Shower After Use: This may seem like a lot of upkeep but in reality drying your natural stone shower after you use it takes about a minute. By taking this extra step you are able to reduce your risks for developing water spots and mildew. Additionally, by drying your natural stone shower after use, you are able to keep the stone looking vibrant and avoid it becoming dull.The easiest way to remove the excess water from your shower is by using a squeegee or microfiber towel.
Keep Your Natural Stone Sealed: Whether you have natural stone floors, countertops, or showers- one of the most important steps to protecting the material is by having it sealed regularly. A clear seal on your natural stone creates an invisible barrier on your stone, preventing liquids, cleaning chemicals, and soap scum from penetrating deep into the stone. Whenever you have natural stone in your shower, it is even more important to maintain a strong seal on your surfaces. This is because your shower faces high exposure to moisture, hair products, and other soaps. Sealing your natural stone is also a great way to prevent bacteria and molds from developing on and in your natural stone.
