scrubbing hard to make tub shine


Your bathroom is probably the most important place when it comes to your personal hygiene, relaxation and guests taking a peak around. A neat, clean, and sparkling bathroom speaks volumes about the homeowner’s personal attention paid to every single aspect of his house.

Read on to know more about it.

1. The chipped finish

Chips might come off your bathtub’s glaze if something heavy falls on it or bumps against it. Since plumbing repairs are required every now and then, there are chances your plumber might have his tools and equipment brushed against the tub, or your toilet might have bumped against it during replacement which can cause chipping. The chipped surface is an eyesore not just for you but for your guests too.

2. Changing colors

Your beautiful white bathtub has now become a pale yellow bathtub and the main reason for it is that the finish becomes water or rust-stained over time. This is a clear sign that you should consider getting high-quality bathtub re-glazing.
