It's important to remove all dirt and mould from your tiles and grout for a smooth application. Give your shower a good scrub and wait for it to dry.
Use masking tape to protect any silicone strips, glass walls and taps from Shower Plug. We want to keep these features free of any product build up.
Be sure to open a window or door for ventilation and put on your protective gloves and mask.
Using a natural bristle brush, paint a coat of Shower Plug onto the walls of your shower and wait five minutes before applying a second coat. Apply the second coat and wait another five minutes. Now wipe any excess product off using an absorbent cloth.
Tip: Any spills or equipment can be cleaned by wiping off with a cloth, or by using methylated spirits.
Now we'll seal the floor of the shower. Using the same brush, paint the first coat of Shower Plug onto the floor of your shower. Wait five minutes before painting a second coat. Apply the second coat and wait another five minutes. Now wipe off any excess product with an absorbent cloth.
To complete the project and prevent any cracks caused by building movement, apply a silicone joint sealant along the wall and floor joint. For more advice, watch our video on how to apply bathroom sealant.
You'll need to wait 12 hours from the last application for Shower Plug to cure. The product will dry to an invisible finish.
Once the product has cured, your shower is ready for use. It will now be easier to clean, resistant to mould and repel any water from the tiled surface.
Put your left-over Shower Plug to use by tackling a tiled balcony in need of waterproofing.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
