The Care and Keeping of Your New Walk-in Tub

Walk In Tub

A Little Maintenance Will Help Your Walk-in Tub Stay At Its Best.

Walk-in tubs are a fantastic addition to your home. Designed to last for many years, they will provide you with therapeutic and safe bathing solutions for your needs. Just like anything else in your home, however, this system does require some TLC every once in a while to ensure it stays at its best. Knowing how to clean and what to avoid can help you treat your walk-in tub well. At Lone Star Walk In Tubs, LLC, we install quality systems for your home. Here is how you can ensure after installation, your walk-in tub remains in peak condition.

How To Clean

After use, rinsing out your tub is a great idea that will help cut down on dirt and grime. If you happen to have a shower, rinsing the tile and walls with the shower head can help you accomplish this. Salts, oils and more can build up on the side of your tub and shower. You can do a flush of the system along with some dish soap or mild cleaning agent to remove grime. Fill your tub with warm water and allow it to drain, which will clean your pipes as well, preventing blockages. After all of this, you can use a small washcloth or dishtowel to wipe the tub down and get rid of any remaining dirt.

Tips for your Walk-in Tub Care

  • Epsom salt is fantastic and ok to use in your walk-in tub, however, bath oils are not. The exception to this is if your bath has aromatherapy options as a part of the system.
  • Cleaning your bath regularly can ensure it stays at its best and running well, however, take care to not use harsh materials such as wire brushes or harsh cleaning solutions as these can cause more damage than benefit.
  • Have your tub checked out by a professional regularly to keep the seals and pipes stay functioning.
