bathroom before and after restoration.

A bright, sparkling clean bathroom can be a beautiful space in any home. But over time your shower and bath can wind up looking filthy. It doesn’t matter how hard you clean, or what techniques you try, nothing makes a difference. The shower screen still looks stained and nothing gets rid of that discoloured grout. You may have thought your only option was replacement, right? A Bathroom restoration can transform your space at a fraction of the cost, and take much less time and energy.

At Canny Surface Solutions, we’ve restored countless bathrooms to their original look and style. Contact us for a free assessment and discover the results we can get for you.

Below we’ll outline some of the most common problems we find in bathrooms, and tips on keeping your bath and shower clean. Remodel your bathroom into an indulgent retreat, and a beautiful space you feel proud to show guests.

Remove Soap Scum from Showers and Bath

What Causes Soap Scum

  • Soap scum is caused by harsh water (calcium and magnesium ions) mixing with soap 
  • If left for too long, soap scum collects on the surface making it more difficult to remove
  • Soap scum can mix with other mould and mildew causing discolourations and odours

Remove Stubborn Shower Scum

Getting on top of soap scum before it develops is key, which is easier if your shower was in a good condition from the start. Using cleaners that target soap scum can help. But as you may have found, many supermarket cleaners either don’t do what they say or contain harsh chemicals you wouldn’t want in your house. While many natural remedies are just a way to keep the surface clean. What they won’t do is completely remove the build up so that your bathroom truly does look like new. 

Shower and Bath Cleaning Tips

  1. Wipe glass and tiles dry with a squeegee or microfiber cloth daily to make ongoing cleaning easier
  2. Use liquid soap instead of traditional bar soap in the shower. The ingredients in bar soap are what solidifies at the bottom of your bath and shower doors
  3. Remove the shower head and rinse off any soap and product residue after every shower
  4. Adding epsom salts to your bath dissolves oils and dead skin and prevents them from settling on the surface

Revive Tiles and Grout to Their Former Glory

It doesn’t take long for tiles and grout to get dirty, scratched and discoloured. This not only affects the entire look of your bathroom, it is also unhygienic.  

Common Grout and Tile Problems

  • Textured ceramic floors trap dirt making mopping largely ineffective
  • Household scourers and scrubbers don’t reach all the little grooves in the tiles
  • Grout is porous and easily absorbs moisture, oils and sugars that cause discolourations
  • Dirt attracts bacteria which requires harsher cleaners to remove, if at all

Clean and Remove Mould from Tiles and Grout

Keeping tiles and grout free of dirt and grime by hand is near impossible. Chemical cleaners can dilute grime in tiles and grout, but if not done properly it can cause mould to settle into the silicone and grout. Once that happens professionally restoring your tiles and grout is often the only solution.

Tile and Grout Cleaning Tips

  1. Wipe down tiles and grout after showering to prevent mould and mildew growth
  2. Always use extractor fans or have windows open to reduce build up on your grout and silicone
  3. Clean grout every three months with a grout brush and cleaner to prevent mould and mineral accumulation
  4. Ongoing maintenance will slow down the discolouration process

Restore Shine to Natural Stone

Natural stone is a sensitive material that can easily become scratched and dull. But once restored, your natural stone can look luxurious and high-end once again.

Common Natural Stone issues

  • Eventual loss of shine after regular use and acids in cleaning products
  • Items dropped on natural stone can cause superficial cracks and chips
  • Natural stone is porous and stains if water sits on it too long
  • Sand, dirt, grit, or anything abrasive can cause scratches

Caring for Natural Stone Bathrooms

If you’ve ever tried cleaning your natural stone, you’ll know it is a delicate process. Natural stone is a precious surface that requires extra special care and protection, but the results are worth it. 

Natural Stone Cleaning Tips

  1. Natural stone should be sealed regularly to protect against everyday wear and tear
  2. Clean weekly using a gentle cleanser to remove soap scum and oils without damaging the fragile surface
  3. Dry stone tiles daily or after every shower to prevent the build up of soap scum
  4. It is worth investing in a maintenance service so you don’t encounter the same issues again
