Tips For Care!
Always test your cleaning solution on an inconspicuous area before applying to the entire surface.
- Wipe surfaces clean and rinse completely with water immediately after applying cleaner. Rinse and dry any overspray that lands on nearby surfaces.
- Do not allow cleaner to soak.
- Use a soft, dampened sponge or cloth. Never use an abrasive material such as a brush or scouring pad to clean surfaces.
Things to do!
Allow 24 hours for the finish to cure, at which point recaulking should be done if necessary.
Wipe your tub or shower dry after use for the first seven days.
Always protect the surface when any remodeling or the like is taking place around it.
Always use a cutting board and trivets (hot pads) to protect your new countertop surface.
Avoid the following from coming into contact with your new surface:
Hair dyes, liquid bandages, muriatic acid, food colorings, sharp objects, chemicals such as CLR, Lime-Away, The Works or anything else acidic or caustic.
Cleaning your new surface on a regular basis is recommended to insure its high gloss and good looks.
Things not to do!
Do not use your refinished fixture until any necessary caulking has been done and allowed to cure properly.
Do not use a bath mat w/ suction cups under any circumstance. If a non-suction cup type mat is used it must be removed after every use.
Never use a (Draino) type of pipe cleaner w/standing water in the fixture. It should be poured directly down the drain and splashing should be rinsed immediately.
Do not bath your pets in your new finished tub. Dog bathing would almost certainly scratch up your finish and void your warranty. And children’s toys should be monitored to insure only soft plastics, sponge and rubber toys are used.
Stick-on non-skids may be applied to your tub or shower bottom, but must be removed by a professional only! we would recommend a non-skid in the finish or a Surestep mat.
