Tips for Cleaning and Maintaining Your Tub

So, you’ve made a smart decision and have upgraded to a premium walk-in bathtub from Heavenly Walk-In Tubs. You and your family, potentially including any elderly or disabled family members, are ready to enjoy all the benefits of your portable bathtub – from safety to hydrotherapy and much more.

We know you’re excited, but it’s important to temper your exuberance long enough to pay attention to a few basic bits of cleaning and maintenance. You want that beautiful tub to last years or even decades, and we can help you make that happen. Here are some simple cleaning and maintenance tips for your walk-in tub.

Type of Water

Does your home use hard water, or soft water? It may seem like a meaningless distinction, but there are different stains and different cleaners you’ll need to use to clean deposits and other gunk based on which kind of water is running.

Bathtub Material

Specific knowledge of exactly what your tub is made of will go a long way to helping you maintain it. At Heavenly Walk-In Tubs, our walk-in tubs are made using the finest quality premium acrylic surfaces, which are generally more resistant to cracks and water damage over time than any other product on the market. For our products, use a non-abrasive cleaner or even just mild soap and water.

Check for Leaks

Our water-tight seals on doors and other cracks keep leaking issues out of your way, but you can never be too careful. Checking for leaks is smart, both within the tub and outside it – draining hoses can develop leaks as well, and these could potentially be very serious if they cause larger issues in your plumbing.

Know Your Warranty

Just in case there happen to be any issues with your walk-in tub, be well aware of your warranty before you pay a single dime. We offer limited lifetime warranties on all our products at Heavenly Walk-In Tubs, but not all vendors are necessarily so reputable. Know exactly what your options will be in worst-case scenarios should anything go wrong.
