Preventing Soap Scum Build Up On Your Tiles

5 Simple Tips For A Healthy Shower

We know that fighting soap scum build up in your shower and/or bath can be an endless battle, but
in our line of work we have collected loads of little tips and tricks to help make this job a little less

It is especially important to take extra care of your shower following any treatment by The Grout
Guy experts such as regrouting, grout replacement or tile/grout repair, so we hope these ideas
inspire you to keep up the good work caring regularly for your shower so that our hard work
refreshing your wet areas lasts as long as it should!

1. Have a small spray bottle of vinegar and water in your bathroom and spray everything down
after each shower.

2. Consider using liquid body soap instead of traditional bar soap. Using a shower gel or body
wash can mean a substantial reduction in scum build up.

3. Keep a dedicated ‘drying’ towel in your bathroom and quickly dry your bathtub and shower
after every use. The water and soap are what get together to form soap scum particles, so
wiping the majority of the water away will reduce the reaction, and in turn the build up.

4. The more minerals you have in your water, the worse your soap scum problem will be, so
consider investing in a water softening shower head if you have particularly hard water at
your place.

5. Finally, add a little Epsom salts to your bath! They not only help soothe sore muscles (for the
gym junkies out there), but they also reduce the ability for the minerals in the water and
soap to react with one another, significantly reducing soap scum build up!

He worked till 8pm on the second night to finish up and he applied multiple trade skills to make it come together for me. If he’s up for promotion/pay rise anytime soon I couldn’t think of any one more deserving because of his work ethic and skill set. Just thought I’d let the company know how happy I am.

I just wanted to thank your team for an amazing tile renovation that was recently carried out in our home. People are blown away by the transformation and the high standard of the work. I am one very satisfied customer. I would be more than happy for you to use me for a reference. Many thanks.
