Keeping Tile Showers Free of Mildew

If you've been looking for an effective way to purge tile showers of mildew once and for all, you'll be pleased to learn that it's a fairly simple undertaking. With a little bit of consistency and elbow grease, you can easily keep your tile showers mildew-free.

Tools You'll Need

  • Commercial mildew cleaner
  • Sponge or scrub brush
  • Cleaning gloves
  • Paper breathing mask

Step 1 - Apply Your Mildew Cleaner

As regular cleanings are the only sure-fire way to keep mildew out of your tile showers, you'll need to incorporate the aid of a commercial mildew cleaner. Once a week, spray your tile showers with your cleaner of choice and allow it to set in for the amount of time specified on its packaging.

Step 2 - Scrub Your Showers

After applying your cleaner, don a pair of cleaning gloves and, if you're particularly weak against fumes, a paper breathing mask. Next, use a sponge or scrub brush to thoroughly clean the showers. In addition to preventing future mildew formation, this will help get rid of any little bits of mildew that may have already found their way into your showers. Once the showers are fully clean, use water to rinse away any remaining traces of your mildew cleaner.

Step 3 - Be Consistent

For the previously discussed steps to keep your showers free of mildew, you will need to perform the cleaning process on a weekly basis. So, in the fight against shower-based mildew, remember that consistency is key.
