Shower Maintenance Tips

Shower Maintenance Tips

You don’t always need to call on a plumber when something goes wrong with your shower: here are some shower maintenance tips and preventative measures you can do yourself to avoid a plumbing emergency.

Shower Maintenance Tips

Prevention is always better than cure, so do remember to take action as early as you can.

Fix a dripping shower head

A leaking shower head is often caused by a build-up of limescale inside the holes that the water comes out of. You can fix a dripping shower head caused by limescale by giving it a thorough clean. Another area to check is the little washer where the showerhead screws in – these can drop out when you clean the showerhead to check it is not missing. If all that does not work then it may be time to replace it or call in a professional for advice.

Tips to prevent limescale build-up

Rinse the showerhead every month to prevent limescale from building up. A daily rinse and dry of your shower tiles and doors, with a squeegee or microfibre cloth, only takes a few minutes but it can help to keep your shower looking great and is easier than an occasional deep clean.

How to protect your shower

It is important to note that your house insurance probably will not cover leaks that are caused by poor maintenance, so it is very important to keep your shower in good condition. Clean it regularly and consider installing a plug guard to catch any hair and bits of soap that might otherwise end up creating a blockage.
