- After the spray, squeegee the tile walls with a rubber squeegee to get the walls to dry quicker and avoid mildew.
- Tile needs to be sprayed with an all function cleaner and rinsed as soon as a week.
- Tidy glass panels with industrial glass cleaner and soft tidy fabrics (or absorbent paper towels) after each shower to keep glass sparkling clean.
- Grout lines must be sealed every 6 months to keep mildew and hard water discolorations at bay.
