Tub Cove Surround Walls Care & Cleaning
Cleaning & Maintaining your new bath or shower wall is simple and will add to the life of your surround.
DO NOT clean surround with ABRASIVE CLEANERS
Comet or Soft Scrub type cleaners will scratch the surface of the laminate, reducing the life of the product.
DO NOT clean surround with BLEACH
This will cause discoloration of the laminate.
RECOMMENDED SURROUND CARE SCHEDULE
EVERY 2ND WEEK – Surround Surface Cleaning
Spray or apply a mild liquid or foam cleaner such as Scrubbing Bubbles, 409, Fantastic, or Pinesol to the surround wall.
Using a soft sponge or cotton cleaning cloth, wipe the surface off after applying the cleaner.
EVERY 2ND MONTH – Caulking Cleaning
We advise preparing a solution of:
4 cups of warm water and 1/2 cup of household bleach
or, you can substitute
1 part white vinegar to 1 part water.
Using a soft sponge or cleaning cloth soaked in the solution, gently wipe down all the caulking around the edges of your bath or shower wall particularly where the bath or shower wall meets the tub or shower pan.
This will prolong the life of the caulking.
Cleaning your laminate or solid surface surround
When it's time to clean your laminate or cultured stone surround, do so after you've taken a long, hot shower. This serves to soften any soap scum on the walls making it easier to remove while cleaning.
Simply spray the surface down with a liquid spray cleaner such as Scrubbing Bubbles, 409 or my new personal favorite, Clorox Bleach Free Bathroom Cleaner. Leave this sit for a few minutes before wiping down with a cleaning rag or towel.
