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.
