Tips for Keeping Your Linear Drains Clean

Now that you’ve had your linear shower drains from LUXE Linear Drains for a while, you may be wondering how to keep them clean and looking as great as the day you had them installed. Keeping your linear drains clean and cleaning them on a regular basis will ensure that they are allowing water to drain through as it should, so today we’re going to share a few tips with you on how you can keep them clean.

The following tips are adapted from

  • Carefully remove the drain cover. Then, wipe the linear drain down with a paper towel to remove hair, soap scum, etc.
  • Next, use a scrub brush and water to thoroughly clean the drain cover. If you want to use a cleaner, use a product that will not harm stainless steel or tile. Also, be sure that your scrub brush isn’t too stiff – a stiff scrub brush can scratch tile and stainless steel (No-curb suggests a glass cleaning brush).
  • Lay the drain cover aside and clean the gutter or drain base in the same manner as you did the drain cover.

A clean linear drain will ensure that water will drain away quickly, so make it a point to clean your drains regularly. Waiting too long could result in a host of problems.

    Thanks for this advice for keeping linear drains clean. I’m glad you mentioned that you should try to use a scrub brush to clean the drain cover. I’m interested to learn if the brush has to be of a certain size or if it just needs to be as big as the drain.

      Hi Taylor! The best way to keep one of our drains clean is to scrub with the scrubby side of a sponge and use mild soap. I hope this answers your question!
