Regular resealing of your shower is not necessary if you use it less frequently. As long as the sealant has been installed properly, you can get away with replacing it every two years. Regular maintenance will ensure the sealant remains waterproof, but you may need to replace the sealant more often if your shower is regularly used. This can lead to mould growth, which can be prevented by using a good quality sealant and improving ventilation in your shower.
Is it Necessary?
Marble is another type of material that requires sealing. The marble sealer will prevent stains and prevent water from soaking into the stone. However, the sealing will not help white marble tiles, as these tend to have iron deposits, which can cause rust staining. If you want to protect your white marble tiles from rust stains, you should seal them. ADB shower sealing solutions are necessary only if the water gets behind the tiles, which can happen if the tiles are improperly installed or if there are cracks in the grout.
After sealing, you should carefully inspect your stone shower walls for any dark spots. Dark spots on the stone indicate water penetration. Clean the stone shower walls and make sure they are free of dirt and buildup. Use a stone-specific cleaning solution to ensure a clean surface. Sealing the stone in sections is recommended. After cleaning the walls, you can proceed to the next step. You should seal small sections of the stone at a time, as a larger section of stone may require multiple coats.
