For many homeowners, removing germs, grime, and mold on the surfaces of bathroom fixtures is never a fun chore to spend time on. That’s not the case for those with KOHLER® walk-in baths because the easy, stress-free cleaning process is the same as that of a traditional bathtub. This allows you to focus on soaking the surfaces instead of scrubbing.
Today, Elite Bathrooms LuxStone™ of Long Island, one of the top bathtub and shower contractors, discusses what you need to know about cleaning the walk-in tub.
The Cleaning Supplies You Need
A KOHLER walk-in bath deserves exceptional care, and that means using only the basic cleaning tools and products such as the following:
- Soft cloth or squeegee
- Windex® or any brand of glass cleaning fluid
- Non-abrasive bathroom cleaner or all-purpose spray.
A soft cloth or squeegee is enough to make the walk-in tub surface shine. Using a bristle brush or scouring pad will leave marks and scratches. As for the cleaning products, you have the option to skip the commercial ones you buy at the store. Bathtub and shower remodeling companies recommend a mild detergent diluted in water for a gentler cleaning solution.
Walk-In Tub Maintenance
The walk-in tub’s handrails and seating are designed for stress-free cleaning. So, after every soak, make sure to wipe the surfaces of the walk-in tub with a damp cloth to prevent the build-up of mold and soap deposits.
As for the decorative bath walls, they don’t require scrubbing since the material is engineered without tile or grout. With no mold growth to worry about, you can just use a mild cleaner and cloth to keep the walls looking good. The same can be said for the walk-in bath’s hand shower, faucet, and grab bars. To make them shiny, you can polish them using Windex or any gentle glass cleaner.
