In order to keep your walk-in tub safe and functional, it will need to be cleaned regularly. A well-maintained walk-in tub is a tub that will last you for many years to come, and you’ll be able to enjoy it bath after bath as it provides you with all the safety you need. We have plenty of ways that you can keep your tub safe and clean, and these are no more difficult to do than your process for washing out a regular tub!
After Your Bath
After each time you use your tub to take a bath or a sit-down shower, we recommend taking the removable showering wand and rinsing out the entirety of the tub using warm water. What this will do is eliminate limescale, soap scum, and other forms of build-up while it’s still fresh, which will save you from having to really scrub later on! Setting the water to warm will help to melt this residue from the tub’s surfaces and send it down the drain where it belongs!
Once A Week Maintenance
Once a week, you’ll want to give your walk-in tub the real washdown. It’s important not to use any wire brushes or steel wool while scrubbing your tub, as this can actually damage the tub’s surface. What you want to do is thoroughly wash all of the surfaces and fixtures of your tub with a mild, nonabrasive, and acrylic friendly cleanser. With the daily or after-each-use rinsing, the process of a full weekly clean should be pretty easy!
Once per month
Your monthly cleaning should consist of a more deep clean than your weekly cleaning, and you’ll want to purge and clean every system, fixture, surface, and a portion of your tub. To do this, fill your tub to around the first jet with warm water, and then turn the water off and add a cup of bleach. With the bleach in the water, turn on the jets and allow them to run for 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes is up, turn off the jets and drain the tub. Once the tub is drained, repeat the steps again sans bleach, and allow the clear warm water to clean the dirt, grime, and bleach out of the entire system for a truly fresh and clean experience.
With regular cleaning and maintenance, you can expect your walk-in tub to give you a fantastic and safe experience for many years. Cleaning a walk-in tub is simple, and it’s a short process that makes a really big impact!
