Walk in showers

How do you clean these huge walk-in showers without falling. I was standing on top of their bench seat removing mold that was growing at the top near the ceiling and I just moved my foot the wrong way and fell and it killed major big time pain,drove me to tears now I have this huge bruise across my back and my butt hurts and my shoulder feels really bad today. I wish I had a hose attachment but I dont have one

  • I use a ladder to reach those places. It provides better footing and choices in height so as not to have to stretch to reach and possibly falling like you did. Please use a step-ladder next time. It could have been more serious. Glad you are okay.

  • Dh uses a step stool for ours. I must say we've never gotten to the point of mold growing, ewwwwwwwwww. I am sorry you had to clean that at all. I hope you're okay. :)

  • I am probably going to get tomatos thrown at me for this thought but I clean the best I can and then I have a housekeeping company with all the right equipment come it for the nitty gritty stuff like that once a month to do a deep clean.

  • Whoever takes the last shower each day uses a squeegee to wipe the water off the walls. Then I (or my husband) follows that with a wipe down with an old towel. Then we squeegee most of the water from the floor towards the drain. We still have to clean the floor occasionally, but our walls never need to be cleaned. We also keep the exhaust fan on throughout the shower and then for about 15-30 minutes after.
