Bathrooms easily get dirty. Even after a lengthy and expensive renovation, steam from your showers can create unsightly mould on your ceiling and tiles. Regular maintenance is important for a spotless bathroom. The same applies to your showers and enclosures. If you want to ensure long-lasting operation of your steam shower, keep up maintenance.
Steam Shower Cabin Maintenance
Modern steam showers are equipped with advanced maintenance features. The Insignia Premium 1000 for example comes with an ozone disinfection system, a leak-free tray and a unique design to keep steam in the cabin. This significantly reduces the amount of maintenance work needed. Vidalux showers also provide useful maintenance features, like an extractor fan and an ozone sterilisation system.
But maintance is still important. However, there are a few things you can do during installation to simplify the process.
Check gaskets and fittings when assembling the tray to ensure it remains watertight. Becuase of the design of the tray, most showers will sit on top of adjustable legs. Double-check the level of the adjustable legs as well.
To make life easier, we recommend leaving some space above and behind the shower cabin. First of all, this gives enough room for the extrctor fan to operate and also provides room for the equipment housed at the rear of the shower unit.
Steam Shower Maintenance Tips
Here are a few tips to help you maintain your shower for a clean and spotless bathroom.
1. Wipe Down The Shower Glass
Limescale build up is common in most showers. As you use soap and shower eveyday, the residue can build up on the glass, especially in the corners and the bottom, near the tray. We recommend using a spray bottle with specialist glass cleaning solution and a microfiber cloth. Spray the solution onto the glass, leave for a minute or so and wipe it down thoroughly. We recommend doing this at least once every few days if you use the shower regularly.
2. Clean The Tray Regularly
