Also, I've had some good success with ammonia based poultice on water borne stains in showers

Don,

 

I agree with Fred, fans or dehumidifiers would also help dry the floors. If there is moisture in the shower pan it wouldnÂ’t hurt to cut out the grout to make it easier for the moisture to leave the pan. Once dry then re-gout.

Remember where the wall and floor meet use a caulk in those areas, and in the corners of the shower. If you were to grout these areas the grout would crack and the moisture would get back into the shower pan. Also around the drain be sure to caulk , do not grout this area.

Try applying a dry poultice..If this shower has been wet for very long it may have way too much water laying in the pan. I would place some fans in the shower and get the air circulating. Can they not use the shower for a while or is this the main shower.

Hi all:

Limestone shower floor, had very poor caulk lines which led to moisture stain on wall. Drying it out but the floor has staining also, see pic. Went down to 50 grit metal which convinced me there is nothing on surface. Water damage or should I continue trying a poultice. Thanks in advance.
