Tub Maintenance Tips
To keep your newly refinished fixtures sparkling clean, follow our care and maintenance tips. With proper attention, they should last for 10 to 15 years. Call Tub Tile & Tops at (402) 971-0023 if you have any questions or to request a quote for refinishing in the Omaha, NE, area.
While these simple suggestions take only minutes, they can help ensure you enjoy your refinished bathtub for years to come.
- Turn on your bathroom exhaust fan when showering or bathing to reduce humidity and lessen the chances of mold forming along the new caulk lines of your bathtub or shower.
- Rinse your tub or shower after each use. Soap scum can actually eat away at the surface over time, so a quick spray down with an extendable shower head, including under soap dishes and shampoo bottles, is a simple way to protect your investment.
- Use only non-abrasive cleaner and non-abrasive scrubbing pads to clean your new surface. Stay away from powders or soft-scrub gels, as they can deteriorate the surface (e.g Comet, Ajax, Soft-Scrub, Brillo Pads, and steel wool should be avoided).
- Do not use bleach or products that contain bleach.
- The best choices are liquid cleaners and soft cloths or sponges.
- We suggest these products: Blue Scotch-Brite pads or microfiber cloths; Zep- Shower, Tub & Tile Cleaner; 409; Lysol Tub & Tile Cleaner; Scrubbing Bubbles; or a DIY mixture of equal parts vinegar & water.
- Watch for leaking or dripping plumbing fixtures in your tub, shower, or sink. Drips can have a negative effect on any surface over time.
- If the water in your area has a high iron count, treat it with the proper conditioning services to avoid rust stains.
