In the bathroom, the shower area is the most attractive according to interior design professionals.
This is corroborated by the architect Fernando Ron, who indicates that for this reason, the area requires constant maintenance to ensure the cleanliness and durability of the tub or cabin, which “must be as aesthetic as it is functional.”
In the bathtub or cabin, indicates Esteban Enríquez, an expert, maintaining the walls that form the outside is important to prevent them from losing their neatness and shine due to the accumulation of scale and impurities.
To achieve proper maintenance, he clarifies, it is important that this is carried out with a certain periodicity. “For example, exterior cleaning should be done every week to avoid staining.
In the case of cabins and tubs with a jet system (specific points where the pressurized water comes out for a massage, which are part of the interior system), maintenance must be done every 6 months ”.
For Ron, this maintenance is essential in the interior harmony of the bathroom, since it is from the appearance of this equipment that a style is applied, as in any other space in the house.
“Details and finishes are always applied based on the largest resources, in the case of the bathroom, the tub or cabin is the starting point of the setting, together with floors and walls.”
Enríquez explains that the maintenance of bathtubs and cabins, both indoors and outdoors, consists of cleaning the walls and checking the faucet parts, in addition to the electrical system in the case of alternatives that have a system. jets or hydromassage.
For tubs with or without a jet system, the recommendation is to clean with a neutral PH soap and then remove all the product from the surface with a damp soft towel or cloth. Also, the best way to keep tubs or cabins in good condition is to dry immediately after use, to prevent water residues from causing stains.
– To maintain and restore the shine of the bathtubs, it is recommended to clean the entire surface with neutral-colored car wax. Let dry and remove the wax with a towel or soft cloth, until the surface is polished and a natural shine is obtained.
– To remove aggressive stains caused by the presence of mold, hard water (water stains on the surface), or soap, it is recommended to use sandpaper number 2 000, and rub the surface gently until the stains are removed, and immediately soak the surface with PH neutral soap. Finally, the soap must be removed with plenty of water.
– Another alternative to stains is to smear the surfaces with car wax without color, with the exception of the floor, since the consistency of the wax will make it slippery. On the walls of the tubs or bath cabins, the wax will act as a kind of waterproof and the water will slide without drying on the surface, avoiding the generation of stains by hard water.
