Slippery Marble Shower Floor
(New York, NY)
The marble shower floor has become slippery, can this be fixed? Yes, it is definitely marble and not a laminate.
Well, if it has "become" slippery then the only reason I can see why it would is a build-up of soap scum or some other film.
The marble itself will not become slippery. If anything it will become more rough from wear by feet and water and therefore less slippery with use.
I'm assuming that you clean it regularly or have cleaned it to try and solve this problem, however soap scum can be tenacious and may not even be that noticeable since it will cover the entire surface. First, I'd recommend
that you clean it with Soap Scum / Hard Water Remover
and a soft bristle brush. I'd bet that will solve the issue. You could then use
the Anti-Slip Floor Tile Cleaner
on the marble floor tiles. This will provide much more secure footing.The only other solution
for slippery marble flooring is to have the marble re-finished so it is more rough to provide better footing.
