How to maintain your bathtub after reglazing

Updated: Mar 19




Although the finish is very durable please see the following: Surface Conditioning: Please do not use surface for a full 8 Hours. All newly refinished surfaces will have surface dust, which will have settled into the new surface. There is no way to prevent this, as we are not working in a 100 percent dust free environment. DO NOT BE ALARMED, normal use and regular cleaning will remove all minor surface dust marks and particles within a few weeks. DO NOT TRY REMOVING ANY PARTICLES BY PICKING AT THEM.


After your bathtub has been painted it needs special care to last longer.

These tips will help you to maintain it in its good condition for a long time:


Do not scrub clean your newly refinished tub for at least one week. Even though the coating is dry enough to use after 8 hrs, it is still curing (hardening) for a week after.


Clean your bathtub every 2 weeks. While taking a shower, a person washes sebum/oil and dead skin cells off the body. They settle and form yellow oily stains. We recommend these non-abrasive cleaners:

Lysol Tub & Tile Cleaner, Fantastic, Dow Bathroom Cleaner, Simple Green.

DO NOT USE TILEX! DO NOT USE Bleach! DO NOT USE CLR either.

Do not use abrasive scrubbing pads, such as Scotch-Brite, or any similar scratch pad.  Clean the surface with a sponge or a cloth.


Rust from shaving foam cans may stain the surface.


Ventilate your bathroom. It will prevent mold from growing on the walls. If you have a window, keep it opened to speed up drying. If you don’t have a window then keep the ventilation or a fan on for > 30 minutes after taking a shower


Destruction of the surface may occur by using acid compounds such as drain openers or tile grout cleaners. All harsh chemicals should be kept away, including hair dyes and nail polish removers and perfumes.


Owner must maintain caulking. Make sure the caulk you use is water soluble (LAYTEX). No Silicone types unless you are very good with it. These are solvent based and very dificult to work with and won't clean off with water. Don't use clear. Use a Bathroom caulk that is designed to resist mold.


Don’t use shampoos in glass bottles. They can break when falling down and hurt you. Indeed, the glass can scratch the paint and it may become the reason causing the layer peel off.


Don’t wash your pets in the bathtub. The pet’s shampoos contain active chemicals that can damage new paint. Your pets can also scratch the paint with their claws.


Damage may occur to any refinished surface when exposed to extreme heat. Please keep hot objects away from the refinished item.


Do not use any bath mats with suction cups. We are not responsible for any accidents, which may occur. IF YOU WANT TO USE A BATHMAT PLEASE USE ONE MADE FOR REFINISHED TUB. YOU CAN GET ONE ON AMAZON.


Warranty

Adamov Reglazing LLC, warranties refinished tubs against the failure of adhesion of the Primer or Finish Coat, to the original consumer, during normal residential use.
