Tub Maintenance Tips
- Run your bathroom exhaust fan when showering or bathing to reduce humidity and lessen the chances of mold forming along the new caulk lines in your refinished tub.
- Rinse your tub or shower after every use to keep it fresh between cleanings. Soap scum can actually eat away at your new surface over time, so a quick spray down, including under soap dishes and shampoo bottles, using your extendable shower head, is a simple way to protect your tub.
Clean your tub, shower, tile, and sink regularly with these tips in mind:
- 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).
- 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.
- Keep an eye open for leaking or dripping plumbing fixtures in your tub, shower, or sink. Drips can have a negative effect on any surface over time.
