When is a bathtub restoration needed?

Many bathtubs successfully retain their original appearance for many years. However, after 5-7 years of frequent use, it might become necessary to renew the coating. How do you know if your bathtub needs restoration?

  • Cracks

These defects often appear on enamel tubs. Tiny cracks, usually in a mesh pattern, are not immediately noticeable to the human eye. They occur due to the temperature difference between hot and cold water. A bathtub with multiple cracks on the surface becomes difficult to clean. It’s also dangerous to bathe children in these tubs because they might get injured.

  • Chips

Enamel can chip when objects accidentally fall or bump against the bathtub. Deformation happens instantly, and over time the enamel begins to peel piece by piece. Dirt accumulates in the chipped areas, pathogenic bacteria start to spread, and rust begins to form.

  • Enamel changes color

Poor water quality and the use of dyes in the bath can affect the enamel. Enamel may turn yellow or become covered with indelible stains.

Note that the lifespan of the tub generally exceeds that of the enamel finish. Thus, it’s important to monitor the coating: it’s the most sensitive area of the bathtub - and over time can wear off, turn yellow, or crack. Timely restoration can address these issues effectively.

  • Loss of smoothness

If you frequently clean your bathtub with strong detergents or abrasive brushes, the coating will warp and the surface of the tub will become uneven, grainy, and unpleasant.

  • Peeling

Have you noticed peeling on the surface of the bathtub? This could indicate that the tub has been previously restored and the top layer is now gradually peeling away.

  • Worn tub

If you have been using your bathtub for a long time, and there are chips, scratches, or rust, then corrosion and serious damage might develop in the future. To prevent this, restore the bathtub on time. Performing the restoration yourself is challenging due to the need for precise application of the coating.

Materials that effectively seal cracks and cover chips are employed, resulting in a new, shiny finish. These substances are practically odorless, dry quickly, and adhere well. Only high-quality materials are used, increasing the durability of the bathtub and offering up to 15 years of longevity.
