Care tips for a newly refinished bathtub, sink or shower

July 13, 2012

After having a tub, shower, sink or countertop professionally refinished, Todd’s Porcelain & Fiberglass Repair  recommends these care tips:

*To retain the beauty of the surface, Todd’s recommends the following:

* Do NOT use for 48 hours

*NEVER USE ABRASIVE cleaners such as Ajax, Comet or Soft Scrub, as these will damage the surface of any bathroom surface and possibly void your warranty. We recommend the use of liquid soaps or Bar Keepers Friend.

*CLEAN TUB AFTER EACH USE and rinse it thoroughly to eliminate soap haze buildup.  Even though the surface may not look dirty, it should be cleaned at least once a month with a mild liquid soap.

*DO NOT use conventional suction cup bathmats or “stick-on” type non-skid flowers, stripes etc. as this will damage your tub finish and void your warranty. For your safety, Todd’s can apply a non-skid surface coating to your tub or will sell an approved imported bathmat.

*If you must use a bathmat, remove it after each use.  DO NOT hang the mat over the side of the tub, but rather roll it up after each use and put it away.  The bath soap should be kept in the soap tray to avoid soap scum build up in the tub.

NOTE: Ensure the refinishing company uses the finest acrylic polyurethane product and provides a minimum of a five year warranty.

Stay out of harm’s way – make everyday your Personal Safety Day!

October 10, 2011

Did you know each week more than 30,000 Americans over the age of 65 are seriously injured by falling?  According to the National Safety Council, nearly 250 die as a result.

October 10, 2011 is National Personal Safety Day and Todd’s Porcelain & Fiberglass Repair in Phoenix, Arizona would like to share how to reduce your risk of falling:

•    Make sure your footwear fits well, has a non-slip sole and is appropriate for the activity at hand.  Slippers, while comfortable, aren’t a good choice as they can stretch, become loose, and fall off, causing the wearer to fall.  Socks can be ice skates on tile floor, and should be worn with shoes.
•    Take steps to eliminate or fix potential hazards at home including making sure all walkways, stairs, and hallways are free of clutter, removing scatter or throw rugs, making sure all cords are out of the way, and using brighter bulbs and increasing natural light throughout the house.

•    Invest in professionally-installed grab bars at the entry to AND inside the tub/shower, as well as replace the towel rack with a grab bars.  Visit ToddsBathtubs.com for more information.
•    Since two-thirds of the falls occur in the bathroom, consider converting your fiberglass tub to a step-in shower.  Reducing the tub barrier from a typical 16 inches down to 4 inches will help reduce your risk as you enter and exit the shower. Call Todd’s today to schedule this one-day tub cut to make your bathroom safer!
•    Consider starting a regular exercise program to improve balance, coordination and lower body strength, after getting approval from your doctor.

•    Review all prescriptions and over the counter medications with your health care provider as some can contribute to the increase in falls among older adults.
•    Have your vision checked by a professional at least once a year.

Safety is within reach, so prevent falls, not react to them!
