How to Care for Your

Refinished Bathtub

Proper care for your refinished bathtub is essential to maintaining its beautiful, glossy finish and ensuring its durability. Here are some easy-to-follow instructions to help you keep your bathtub in excellent condition:

  • Avoid Harsh Cleaning Products
- Use non-abrasive, gentle cleaners. Avoid products with bleach, ammonia, or any acid-based ingredients that could damage the finish.
- Ideal cleaners include mild dish soap, liquid bathroom cleaner, or a homemade solution of water and vinegar (in small quantities).

  • Daily Maintenance
- Rinse the bathtub with warm water after each use to remove soap residue and prevent buildup.
- Wipe the surface dry with a soft cloth or sponge to avoid water spots and mildew

  • Weekly Cleaning Routine
- Use a soft sponge or cloth to apply a mild cleaner to the tub's surface.
- Gently scrub to remove any dirt or soap scum, then rinse thoroughly with warm water.

  • Prevent Damage
- Do not place sharp or heavy objects directly in the tub. Use rubber mats if needed, but avoid suction cups, which can cause peeling.
- Avoid dropping heavy items in the tub, as this could chip or crack the finish.

  • Address Stains Promptly
- For stubborn stains, let a mixture of baking soda and water sit on the stain for 10-15 minutes before gently scrubbing and rinsing.
- Never use steel wool or abrasive pads.

  • Regular Inspections
- Check for signs of wear or damage. Address small chips or cracks immediately using a repair kit designed for refinished tubs.

  • No Harsh Chemicals
- Do not use any products containing bleach or harsh chemicals, as they can discolor and damage the finish.
- Keep colored bath products, like hair dyes, away from the tub to avoid staining.

  • Ensure Proper Ventilation
- Maintain good ventilation to prevent mold and mildew. Use a fan or open a window during and after bathing.

  • Prolong Durability
- Refinishers like Armoglaze are designed to be durable and long-lasting. Regular maintenance helps ensure your tub retains its new look for years.

  • Professional Advice
- For any persistent issues or maintenance questions, contact professional refinishing services, such as LCM, to ensure the longevity of your bathtub. They offer expert advice and services tailored to keep your tub in optimal condition.
