Shower Cleaning and Repair
Custom showers are complex systems, there are several areas and materials that need to be properly selected and installed in order to have a leak-proof shower system for many years of service.
Causes of leaks in showers
- Loose, broken grout lines and wall tiles – This situation allows water to leak behind shower walls and under the shower floor, causing water damage to bathroom floors.
- Separation of shower wall and shower floor seams – Large gaps around the shower floor and at the corner of shower walls is the second cause for water leaks in showers.
- Clogged Shower Drain System – Once water makes its way into the wall and down the shower pan and shower liner, it should be able to exit via the weep holes in the shower drain system. Many times the weep holes are clogged, keeping water in the pan.
Marble Limestone Travertine Granite Showers
Marble, limestone or travertine shower walls can lose their polish due to hard water and low ph soaps and shampoos as well as wrong marble cleaning products. Specialized Floor Care Services, restores stone showers by grinding, honing and polishing the marble, granite, or travertine to its original intended look.
Shower Pan Construction
Tiled shower floors have four major components that need to be addressed during installation.

- Correct floor drain and weep holes – The drain system is one for mud base beds.
