Refinished Bathtub Tips

The bathtub is a major fixture in the bathroom and it is used every day for either traditional baths or for standing in to take a shower.  The consistent use of the bathtub exposes the surface of the tub to moisture which can cause wear and discoloration over time and even mildew growth if not properly cleaned.  When a bathtub becomes badly discolored, the surface of the tub can be restored with bathtub refinishing or reglazing services.  These services involve stripping the original finish of the tub and applying a new bathtub finish to either restore its original color or change its look with a new color.

Refinished bathtubs need proper cleaning and maintenance techniques to help preserve the new finish.  By following these bathtub cleaning tips, you can effectively maintain the new finish of your reglazed bathtub. Read more
