The pan, or base, of a shower can become soiled with dirt, grime, mildew and soap scum. It is hard to feel clean after stepping out of a dirty shower and showering in a dirty shower is not very hygienic. Clean a shower pan thoroughly at least once a week to remove stubborn dirt and soap scum. Wipe the pan down and rinse it well after each use to maintain a clean shower.
