Have you noticed unsightly orange stains in your shower? Many homeowners experience this issue, but few understand what causes it. In this article, we'll explain why orange stains appear in showers and how a new vinyl tub or shower with Microban protection from Matrix Home Solutions can keep your new tub or shower clean and free of stains.


Iron in the water


One of the main causes of orange stains in showers is iron in the water. If your water supply contains high levels of iron, it can react with the oxygen in the air and create orange rust stains. This is especially common in older homes with outdated plumbing systems.


Hard water


Another common cause of orange stains in showers is hard water. When water contains high levels of minerals like calcium and magnesium, it can leave behind orange or brown stains on surfaces like showers, tubs, and sinks. Hard water can also cause soap scum buildup, which can make cleaning even more difficult.


Lack of ventilation


Poor ventilation in the bathroom can also contribute to orange stains in showers. When moisture gets trapped in the shower area, it can create a breeding ground for mold and mildew. These organisms can produce orange or brown stains, which can be difficult to remove.

So, how can you prevent orange stains in your shower? The answer is simple: install a new tub or shower with Microban protection from Matrix Home Solutions. Our tubs and showers are resistant to mold, mildew, and bacteria growth, making them easy to clean and maintain. Microban technology is infused directly into the vinyl material, ensuring that your tub or shower remains clean and free of stains for years to come.
