How to Clean A Pebble-Stone Shower Floor
August 2, 2021
Among all the bathroom trends of the past decade, perhaps the most deeply permeating and here-to-stay is the desire for a more spa like space. Especially as recent events have seen more people spending more time at home, many homeowners have sought to elevate their bathroom space to create a more indulgent, relaxing sanctuary.
Pebble-stone flooring is one of the most popular spa-like bathroom trends. Accessible, affordable, and high-impact, pebble stone flooring is a great way to uplevel a bathroom’s overall aesthetic, without having to completely remodel. Even the smallest showers become somehow luxurious with the installation of pebble stone flooring.
But cleaning pebble stones? That’s another matter entirely.
Fortunately, keeping your pebble-stone shower floor clean might not be as tough as you think. Here are some tips to keep your shower feeling luxurious from day to day, without the need for intensive cleaning.
1. Scrub Your Shower Floors Weekly
This isn’t difficult, but it does require a bit of time. Once each week, use a gentle cleaner to scrub your shower and rid the space of shampoo, oil, residue, and dirt. This will keep your shower from looking dirty and cut down on the likelihood for mold or mildew to develop between the stones.
2. Encourage Quick Drying
Another way to prevent mold and mildew is to make sure your shower floor dries quickly after use. Leave shower doors/curtains open to allow air flow, and use an exhaust fan to rid the bathroom of residual humidity if possible.
3. Eliminate Hard Water Stains
Depending on where you live, you may to battle hard water stains on your pebble stone shower floor. If you start noticing white spots on your floors, it’s time to take action. Spray your pebbles with white vinegar and let sit for about 10 minutes. Then, simply scrub and rinse.
Pebble floors can look daunting at first glance, but with relative ease, you can keep yours looking amazing for decades to come.
