Bathtub Stain Removal

Bathtub stains can happen for a variety of reasons. Bacteria can grow on the surface due to moisture. Or hard water can cause mineral deposits that stain the surface. Bath bombs can leave a stain as well depending on the color.

Depending on the severity of the stain, sometimes it can be scrubbed off quite easily. Using cleaning supplies such as Comet, Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, baking soda, and hydrogen peroxide can get mild stains out of bathtubs most of the time. If the stain has gone untreated for a longer period of time, it may be harder to get off the surface. Also, the cleaning supplies listed above can be abrasive and harsh, causing damage to the bathtub surface.

If the bathtub is stained and no matter how much scrubbing is done, they won’t leave, the surface could be permanently damaged. If that’s the case, refinishing is a good option. Refinish First can repair and refinish the bathtub surface and make it look brand new.

Replacing the bathtub doesn’t make sense unless a complete bathroom renovation is being done. Refinishing costs less and takes way less time than replacement. Give Refinish First a call for a free estimate or visit their website.

Cleaning Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tile needs to be treated gently when cleaning. No abrasive cleaning products should be used on ceramic tile surfaces. To properly clean the surface, gather these items:

  • Water
  • Spray bottle
  • A cloth/rag
  • Dish soap
  • Toothbrush or scrub brush

Use a cloth to remove loose dirt and dust from the tile. Fill the spray bottle with warm water and add a drop or two of dish soap spraying the surface liberally. Use a cloth or rag to wipe down the tiles. To clean the grout, grab an old toothbrush and scrub to get it bright white again.

After getting all of the dirt, dust and food particles off of the tile, rinse the surface with water and wipe dry. To make the tiles shine even more, buff them with a soft cloth.

Avoid using vinegar or any acid based cleaners on ceramic tile. These can fade and dull the surface. Also, regular soap can leave a residue, making tiles appear dirty.

If the ceramic tile has become cracked or grout is missing, contact Refinish First. They can repair and refinish ceramic tile surfaces.

Refinishing Science Labs

Science labs are notorious for spills and stains from experiments. Some chemicals can even ruin the tabletop in the science classroom. Getting new tables and counters for science classrooms would be expensive, but refinishing those surfaces could save some money.

Refinish First can tackle those stained, scratched and chipped surfaces and make them look like new. They can refinish many surfaces including laminate, Formica, tile, solid surfaces and cultured marble. While refinishing the surface, they will also repair chips and cracks.

They offer almost endless color options for surfaces and even offer stone finishes. Have Refinish First match the existing surface color, or create a new one.

If the refinished surface gets damaged in the future, Refinish First can repair it unlike other surfaces. Their bonding technology can extend the life of a surface for up 20 years. They even offer a five-year limited warranty against adhesion failure on countertops.

Update those old science labs surfaces while school is out for the summer. Refinish First can get the job done in no time.
