Slate Shower Soap Scum and Other Problems

It’s no secret that soap scum buildup can be a problem in showers, but for this particular shower, cleaning the soap scum was a real challenge. Homeowners in La Jolla, California contacted us because the textured finish in their slate shower made scrubbing awkward and ineffective. In some places, their aggressive cleaning methods had caused damage to the caulk. The normal daily care was no big deal, but these homeowners were fed up with deep cleaning wanted to leave it to properly equipped professionals.

Our Slate Restoration Process

To remove the soap scum and deep clean the textured surface we used high-quality professional cleaning solutions and an antiquing brush designed for safe, yet heavy-duty cleaning. Once the stone was completely sanitized, we applied a resin-based, color enhancing sealer. We also recaulked in any areas where the caulk was damaged or missing.

The homeowners loved the deep, rich color and shine of their like-new slate shower.
