Once you have gone through the effort of having your tub refinished, taking care of your newly refinished tub can help you extend its life and get the most out of your investment. Here’s what our bathtub refinishing experts recommend when it comes to properly caring for a newly refinished bathtub.
Bathtub Refinishing: How to Care for a Newly Refinished Tub
1 – Wait a little bit before using the tub.
In fact, it’s best to wait 48 hours before using a newly refinished tub.
2 – Clean the tub after each use.
After the first 48 hours after the refinishing has passed and you are ready to start using your tub again, be sure to rinse it thoroughly after each use. This will prevent the buildup of soap scum and other debris.
3 – Do NOT use abrasive cleaners on your tub.
When you clean your tub more thoroughly (than just the rinse after use), avoid using any harsh or particularly abrasive cleaners that could start to deteriorate the refinish. For some recommendations on cleaners, contact our trusted bathtub refinishing professionals.
4 – Avoid using suction mats or stick-on, non-skid items.
Suction mats and stick-on items can damage the newly refinished surface of a tub. If, however, there are safety reasons for using mats while showering or bathing, be sure to remove the mat/stick-on items after each use of the tub (and before rinsing out the tub).
