Bathtub cleaning and maintenance is very important to hotels, motels, schools and others who have just had their bathtubs refinished or have bathtubs installed. Bathtub refinishing, in addition to saving money, time and the environment, restores old worn out, scratched, dulled bathtubs to look like they came from the factory of a bathtub manufacturing company like Kohler or American Standard. The ambiance of a remodeled bathroom is different and your personal experiences there feel different too. You are ecstatic, you have always wanted this day to come. Here is what you need to know about your refinished bathtub.
How long a refinished bathtub lasts depends on the bathtub refinishing company and the hotels, motels, apartments or nursing homes that have just had their bathtubs refinished.
First, bathtub refinishing companies. The most common complaint from people that have had their bathtubs refinished, is peeling. Coatings peeling off of a refinished bathtub after perhaps weeks or months of use comes from how the bathtub was prepared before the spraying, how it was sprayed and the quality of the coatings used. That is the responsibility of the bathtub refinishing company. At Refinishing Stars, we use quality and long lasting superior coatings that are designed to restore your bathtub to its wonderful luster.
Finally, Hotels, motels, nursing homes, apartments, or homeowners who have just had their bathtubs just refinished, need to follow the following recommendations so that they don’t void their refinished bathtub warranty and importantly, to get the maximum service from their tubs.
Refinished bathtub cleaning and maintenance
Because the surface of a refinished bathtub is non-porous, we recommend that abrasive cleaners, bleach, or any cleaning solution that contains strong acids not used on the refinished bathtubs or any bathtubs for that matter. Any aggressive rubbing with a rough brush, steel wool, or abrasive pads will ruin your coatings and void your refinished bathtub warranty.
Bathtub mats with suction, will suck up the coatings on a refinished bathtub and should be avoided.
Since you know what not to use in cleaning and maintaining your refinished bathtub, knowing what to use should be pretty easy. We recommend that you use non-abrasive cleaning solutions that you use in your kitchen that are environmentally safe. The best way to care and maintain your refinished bathtub is to wipe it down with a towel after each use.
Waxing a bathtub will make it last longer for the same reasons that a waxed car or boat lasts longer, and we might add looks better than one that is not waxed. Wax your bathtub every 6 months with a urethane polish that you find in your friendly auto store. We recommend polishing a bathtub five days after it has been refinished. Be careful when using a waxed bathtub. They are slippery.
