An epoxy coating is one of the modern methods for restoring and renewing bathrooms. It is a liquid substance based on synthetic resin that, when hardened, forms a strong, smooth, and shiny layer. Epoxy coatings give bathtubs a beautiful appearance and improve their performance characteristics. However, to maintain the perfect condition of such a tub, proper and regular care is required.
Here are some tips for caring for your bathtub after applying an epoxy coating:
- Careful Use Epoxy coatings require careful handling, especially within the first 48 hours after application, when the full hardening process takes place. During this time, avoid exposing the surface to water and any stresses.
- Regular Cleaning To maintain the shine and cleanliness of the tub, it should be washed regularly. Use mild, non-abrasive cleaning agents to avoid scratching the surface. Suitable choices are liquid glass cleaners or gentle foaming solutions.
- Avoid Abrasive Cleaners Scrubs, powders, and other abrasive cleaners can scratch and damage the epoxy coating. Therefore, their use should be completely avoided.
- Soft Cleaning Tools Use soft sponges or microfiber cloths. Refrain from using metal brushes, hard sponges, and scrapers that can leave scratches on the smooth surface.
- Careful with Hot Items The epoxy coating may be sensitive to high temperatures. Avoid contact with hot items, such as not placing hot hair dryers or irons directly on the surface of the tub.
- Protection from Dyes Colorants, such as hair dyes or certain cosmetic products, can stain the epoxy coating. Try to prevent them from coming into prolonged contact with the tub’s surface.
- Prevent Moisture Buildup Prolonged accumulation of water or moisture can have a negative impact on the epoxy coating. After taking a bath or shower, wipe the surface dry to prevent possible degradation of the coating.
- Immediate Stain Removal If grease, oil, or other substances have gotten onto the surface of the tub, they should be immediately removed using a gentle detergent and water.
- Avoid Harsh Chemicals Solvents and strong chemicals, like acetone or bleach, can harm the epoxy coating. Avoid using them for cleaning the tub if possible.
- Regular Inspection Periodically inspect the tub for cracks, chips, or other damage. If problems are detected, contact professionals promptly for repair or correction of the coating.
Proper care for a bathtub after epoxy coating will help maintain its appearance and functionality for many years. Remember that gentle and attentive handling is the key to the longevity of any coating.
A Client’s Perspective: John’s Story
“Before I reached out to “Ekoglaze,” my bathtub was in a dreadful state. I always thought that using common cleaning agents was enough, and everything would be fine. How wrong I was! Due to abrasive powders and harsh brushes, the tub quickly deteriorated: it developed chips and scratches, and the enamel turned dull and lifeless. But everything changed when I met Alex from your company.
Alex not only restored the tub by applying a layer of epoxy resin but also explained in detail how to care for it properly. He strongly advised avoiding harsh cleaning agents and using gentle glass-cleaning gels instead. Thanks to his advice, I began to wipe down the tub with a soft cloth after each use and became more cautious about choosing cleaning products.
A year after the epoxy treatment, my bathroom hasn’t just maintained its good condition—it looks as if I’ve just installed a brand-new tub! No trace of the previous problems remains: no scratches, chips, or dullness. The epoxy coating really works wonders, and now I know for sure that proper care can significantly extend the life of plumbing fixtures.
I am sincerely grateful to Alex and “Ekoglaze” for their professionalism and attention to detail. This company didn’t just repair the condition of my tub; they taught me how to preserve its perfect state for many years to come. I can confidently recommend their services to anyone looking to restore their bathtub and learn how to properly take care of it”.
