What Is the Easiest Shower Material to Clean?

Unless you’re the rare person who self-soothes by tirelessly scrubbing bathroom titles, most homeowners do not enjoy spending their weekends deep-cleaning their dirty showers. Fortunately, the squeaky-clean solution is simple: Install a low-maintenance shower system. How can you know if your new shower is easy to keep clean? If you want a shower that is stylish, durable, and also simple to maintain, consider investing in a shower replacement that’s engineered with low-maintenance material. In most cases, the easiest shower material to keep clean is acrylic.

Why Acrylic Showers Reign Supreme

Located in what could easily be the dirtiest room of a home—the bathroom—a shower should be constructed of a material that guards against soap scum, bacteria, mold, and mildew growth. For this reason, acrylic has quickly become the material of choice. Thanks to a single-sheet design, acrylic shower walls are among the most affordable and easy-to-clean shower materials on the market. They only require occasional cleaning with a damp cloth. And because acrylic shower surrounds are installed without grout lines, the threat of mildew growth and leaks is virtually eliminated.

A Closer Look: Acrylic vs. Tile Showers

When compared to traditional tile shower systems that feature seemingly endless grout lines, acrylic showers are significantly easier to clean. Tile showers must be properly sealed and frequently cleaned to extend their lifespan. This design also makes them more prone to leaks as well as mold and mildew growth. And to top it all off, a special grout cleaner must be used to prevent grout lines from appearing dingy and dirty.
