How to clean resurfaced bathtubs and resurfaced tiles:

Many people are unsure of how to clean a resurfaced bath tub or are worried about the correct way of cleaning resurfaced tiles in order to ensure maximum durability.

By following the below instructions, you will keep the finish clean and attractive for many years:

  1. Do not get the bathroom surface wet for 24 hours after resurfacing work is completed.
  2. Carefully remove masking tape and paper after 4 hours.
  3. Replace bath-tub hardware and caulk after 4 hours.
  4. Regularly cleaning resurfaced tiles is important to prevent dirt and soap scum build-up that will hide the beauty of the finish.
  5. Clean with warm water and liquid detergents or bathroom cleaners which will clean the fixture without dulling the finish. Suggested products are:
    – Spray and Wipe.
    – Shower Power.
    – Easy off Bam.
    – All purpose liquid dish soap (Palmolive or Earth Choice).
  6. Liquid car wax works well to protect the your resurfaced bath finish and makes it easier to clean. Follow the directions on the container. Waxing around the drain will also keep water and rust away from the surface. Apply wax every 3 months or so. Do not wax the bottom of the bath-tub as the wax will make the tub slippery and dangerous.
  7. Always rinse well and dry new surfaces as often as possible after use to prevent standing water.

Tips on how to clean resurfaced baths:

  • Do not scrub resurfaced bath tub excessively, or use force when removing dirt and grime as this may scratch
  • Do not use abrasive cloths such as scourers.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaners in powder or cream form.
  • Do not use acids on the finish. If using a drain cleaner, carefully pour into the drain
  • NEVER use suction cup bath-mats or any suction cups on the finish.
  • NEVER allow nail polish remover to come in contact with the finish.
  • To keep your resurfaced bathroom (link to /bath) looking great for years, do not store soap, shampoo, bath oil etc on the corner ledge. Water gets trapped underneath and in time, this can cause the finish to discolour. A hanging shower caddy works well to store these items away from the surface. 

How to clean your resurfaced kitchen:

  1. It is important to ensure your resurfaced kitchen dry correctly: do not get the surface wet for at least 4 hours after resurfacing work is completed. Longer periods may be required depending on the size of your kitchen resurfacing project and drying conditions. For example, newly resurfaced kitchen bench-tops may need 24 hours to fully harden and cure before it can be used
  2. Once dry, carefully remove masking tape and paper.
  3. Clean with warm water and liquid detergents or cleaners which will clean the resurfaced kitchen fixtures without dulling the finish. Suggested products are:
    – Spray and Wipe.
    – All purpose liquid dish soap (Palmolive or Earth Choice).
  4. Always rinse well and dry new kitchen surfaces as often as possible after use to prevent standing water.

Tips on how to clean resurfaced kitchen cabinets, benchtops and sinks:

  • Do not scrub excessively, or use force when removing dirt and grease as this may scratch the finish.
  • Do not use abrasive cloths such as scourers.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaners in powder or cream form.
  • Do not use acids on the finish. If using a drain cleaner, carefully pour into the drain without spilling on the finished surface.
  • NEVER allow nail polish remover to come in contact with the finish as this causes damage.
  • Always use a temperature controlled board (eg: chopping board or pot plate) when placing hot plates, pots or utensils on your bench-top.
  • Do not use sharp utensils to chop, slice or dice food directly on the surface. Ensure that a chopping board is used.

NB: Failure to follow these instructions on how to clean your resurfaced bath and resurfaced kitchen may void your warranty.
