Common questions about a refinished tub are….Does it need special treatment? Is it going to be durable enough? How long will it last? How do I clean it?
The hi-tech acrylic resins used by Miracle Method are so hard and durable that we have seen jobs that still look great after 15 years or more. Our finishes are strong and bonded onto the original surface with a proprietary bonding agent, called MM4, that has a 30 year track record. It is because of our MM4 that we can offer a meaningful 5 year warranty that guarantees against any delamination of the new finish.
Our finishes do not need special treatment. In fact, our care and cleaning instructions are very similar to the care and cleaning instructions you will find with brand new bathtubs from Kohler or American Standard. These manufacturers recommend non-abrasive liquid cleansers such as Fantastic, 409, Simple Green or even Scrubbing Bubbles. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or corrosive chemicals like bleach as well as any product with strong acids such as Lime Away or Draino.
With proper care your Miracle Method Tub should last 15 years or more.
Some cleaners are more effective than others. Miracle Method produces and offers a very effective bath and shower cleaner called Mira-Clean. It is safe for refinished tubs, yet equally effective on non-refinished tubs and showers.
Whichever cleaner you select, spray your tub and let it soak and penetrate the dirtier areas for several minutes. After 3 to 5 minutes, use a soft sponge or a brush designed for Teflon surfaces to scrub the surface, then rinse thoroughly. Products like steel wool, abrasive sponges, and aggressive scotch bright pads will quickly damage most any tub finish…don’t use these!
These simple tips will extend the life of your tub while keeping it free of harmful bacteria, soap scum, and mineral deposits. Call 855-212-7337 to find a Miracle Method professional near you.
