What is Wetwall Technology?

If you aren’t familiar with the ins and outs of wetwall technology, you’re not alone. A wetwall is a style of shower wall made of waterproof panels cut to the exact specifications of your unique space. The wetwall panels consist of two layers, one made of laminate and the other of high-quality composite, which is tightly bonded together. They are also mold and odor-resistant and create a water-tight barrier that keeps the structure of your home free of unwanted moisture or leaks. Wetwalls can even be installed around other walls in your bathroom and are an excellent way to make sure areas like backsplashes and shower surrounds are completely waterproof.

Cleaning a Shower Wetwall 

Shower walls and surrounds can be made from numerous materials including ceramic tiles, stone, and even glass. While each material offers its own unique style, when it comes to maintenance, wetwalls are an excellent choice if you want your cleaning routine to be a piece of cake. This is because, unlike other options, shower walls made of wetwall have no grout to contend with and respond amazingly well to a simple cleansing routine. 

Wetwall Cleaning Dos

Ready to make the switch or already have wetwall installed in your home? Use these options on your shower wetwall for easy cleaning:

  • Warm soapy water and a soft sponge or cloth
  • Your favorite gentle household cleaner
  • Magic erasers
  • Diluted bleach solution
  • Solution of white vinegar and water (add a few drops of essential oil for that extra fresh factor!)

Wetwall Cleaning Don’ts

While wetwall is incredibly durable, there are a few simple steps you should take to prevent damage. To keep your shower wetwall in mint condition, avoid cleaning with the following:

  • Cleaners with abrasive textures, which may damage the panel surface
  • Textured/scratchy sponges like Scotch-Brite Pads
  • Scouring powders 
  • Solvents or other strong chemicals

Extra Benefits of Shower Wall Panels

Aside from the ease of keeping them fresh and clean, there are other great benefits to choosing wetwall panels for your shower. Shower wetwall panels are a less invasive way to remodel and can even be installed over existing tile walls without the need to remove the tile. They are easy for us to install for you, with installation usually only taking a few hours, so you can enjoy your new shower even sooner! Wetwall panels also come in a huge variety of colors and patterns. The sky’s the limit on your creativity and aesthetic. Finally, wetwall shower wall panels won’t break the bank, and are one of our most affordable options for bathroom remodels.
