Yes. We recommend a 50/50 mixture of White Vinegar and water, with a little added dish soap. Mix in a spray bottle. Spray onto the surface and let set for 3 minutes. Wipe clean with a wet wash cloth. If you wish to use store bought products please refer to the Care and Maintenance document for approved cleaners.
No. Once the coating has cured most people cannot tell the difference between a regular tub and a refinished one.
We do use ventilation fans to exhaust air from the bathroom to outside the home. However it is recommended for any young children, pregnant women or people with respiratory conditions to not be present during the time of refinishing and in some cases for the duration of the curing time. When in doubt, play it safe.

We strive to protect our environment as much as possible. Also many of the products we use are Low VOC to ensure as little impact as possible.

“You don’t park a brand new car in a garage that is being built.” We always recommend to do other plumbing or remodeling work first. This is to limit the chances of extra repair charges. The only thing we recommend to do after the bathtub resurfacing is installation of glass shower doors.
