Cleaning Bathtub Challenges

Dane Quittner, from Rebath, shares some thoughts on why bathtubs get so dirty.

The most common area for mold and mildew to grow in the shower is in the grout lines why? ( mold and mildew flourish where there is a constant exposure to moisture and if you have tile walls the best spot is in the grout (porosity) the joints stay wet all the way to the backer and could have more issues behind the tile that we cant see!)

Fiberglass tubs and shower bases (including “one-piece” molded fiberglass units) have been a common bath installation product for years. When manufactured, these fiberglass products are coated and sealed with gel-coat which gives the new product a gloss and sheen. Through normal use and cleaning the gel-coat eventually wears off and leaves the fiberglass material exposed to water.

As a porous material, fiberglass will allow water to penetrate its surface creating the environment for mold and mildew to grow and spread. Abrasive cleaners can sometimes remove the stains and discoloration, but the environment to re-grow the mold and mildew doesn’t change, which means those stains come back over and over again.

There’s a simple connection. Retaining moisture is the key ingredient to mold and mildew growth. By eliminating porous surfaces in the bath we can improve the ability to keep it clean!
Because Re-Bath products are 100% non porous they are far easier to clean.

And remember just because you want your bath to be easy to clean you don’t have to give up the look you have always wanted. With so many color and texture options we can truly give you the bathroom of your dreams.
