Does a newly installed tub or shower require ongoing maintenance?

After the installation of your new shower or tub, adhering to a regular maintenance routine is crucial to ensure its longevity and optimal performance.

Here are some maintenance tips we recommend at Mainstream:

  1. Regular Cleaning: Use non-abrasive cleaners to clean your shower or tub. Harsh chemicals should be avoided to preserve the finish and integrity of the surface.
  2. Drain Maintenance: To prevent clogs, use drain strainers. They help catch debris and hair that could otherwise block your plumbing.
  3. Leak Prevention: Consider installing leak detectors to monitor for water leaks. Address any detected leaks promptly to prevent water damage.
  4. Mold and Mildew Control: Maintain proper ventilation in your bathroom, especially after showers or baths, to reduce humidity levels. This helps prevent mold and mildew growth. Ensure the caulk around the base of your tub remains intact and sealed.
  5. Fixture Inspection: Regularly inspect your fixtures for any signs of wear or damage and repair them as necessary to avoid leaks and other issues.
