Caring For Your  Bathtub:

Although the finish is very durable please see the following:

Surface Conditioning: Please do not use surface for a full 24 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.

Use the same care you would use to wash the hood of a new car. Never use abrasive cleaners! The refinished surface is non-porous; a mild, non-abrasive soap
combined with a soft cloth and water will clean your tub.

The best way to keep your tub clean is to wipe it down with a towel after each use. This will pick up soap residue so  it won't end up drying on the surface of the
tub. This goes with any tub.

Do not scrub clean your newly refinished tub for at least one week. Even though the coating is dry enough to use after 24 hrs, it is still curing
(hardening) for a week after. A good rinsing after each shower or bath will keep soap from building up on the surface in the mean time.

Clean the surface with a sponge or a cloth. Scouring pads can scratch the surface which could cause soap build-up.

Always use non-abrasive cleaners to clean any refinished surface. We recommend the use of any of these non abrasive cleaners:
Lysol Tub & Tile Cleaner, Fantastic, Dow Bathroom Cleaner, Dow Scrubbing Bubbles,  Simple Green.

1. Do not use abrasive cleansers – this includes, but is not limited to, SOS® pads, Comet®, and Soft Scrub®.

DO
NOT USE TILEX!!!!  DO NOT USE Bleach!!!!!  DO NOT USE Lemon Cleaners either.

2. Do not use abrasive scrubbing pads, such as Scotchbrite, or any similar pad as this will scratch the new surface.

3. Please maintain faucets and plumbing.   Do not  subject the surface to any dye.

4. Rust from shaving lotion cans may stain surface if allowed to sit for long periods of time.

5. 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 from
the finish Including hair dyes and nail polish removers and perfumes. Please keep toys from chipping bathtubs. Use rubber toys only not hard plastic.

6.
Use of liquid soap or body washes is recommended as they rinse easily with water and help prevent the buildup of soap scum. Also a quick wipe with a towel
when done will help keep soap residue at bay.

7. Owner must maintain caulking.
Make sure the caulk you use is water soluable (LAYTEX). No Silicone types. These are solvent based and very dificult to work with and
won't clean off with water. I recommend Phenoseal or Polyseamseal. Don't use clear.

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

9. Do not use any bath mats with suction cups. I install a slip resistant surface YOU MUST STILL USE CAUTION when using the bathtub. The slip resistant
surface will only aid to prevent slips and falls and we are not responsible for any accidents, which may occur.

10. Don't clean your dogs in the tub. Their nails can scratch the finish.

The use of bleach does not clean a bath tub. It will kill mold, make your white clothes white and wreck everything else. Bleach should not be used to clean a bath
tub because it is an oxidizer (bad). Using a wash cloth, wash the inside of the bath tub and rinse out.

You can wax your tub every four months with a urethane polish (like Turtle Wax® 2001) to maintain its luster. This will also help protect your tub against dirt.

If you treat your new surface with respect, clean it regularly your fixture will stay shiny, bright and should give you many years of trouble free service.

How to unclog a drain.

As stated above harsh chemicals are a no no. If the water is not going down and you put
chemicals in the water the chemicals will dissolve in the water and eat away at your finish
whether the tub has been refinished or not.  

Having a snake is a good idea.

1) Take off the over flow plate and pull out.

2) Take a snake. ( I recommend one that you can attach to a drill ) I got mine at home depot.

3) With some water in the tub run the snake down the drain via overflow slowly until the
water starts to go down. If you just have a somewhat slow drain you may be able to get
away with chemicals but if its a real slow drain or clogged altogether use the snake. If you
are uncomfortable doing this than hire a professional.

4) Back the snake out slowly hopefully with a glob of hair.

5) Replace the over flow plate.

Using chemicals on this would only have  
made a bigger slimy mess in the drain.
