Bathtubs of different materials also have different maintenance methods. If they are not properly maintained, they may even have the opposite effect. Here, the editor of Jiuzheng Building Materials Network will give you a brief analysis of the maintenance tips for bathtubs of different materials.

When the bathtub is maintained, you can choose a suitable polishing machine, a wool polishing disk of around 1900 rpm, apply wax to the polishing disk, and then polish the polished part. Before sanding, the surface should be repaired with sandpaper (No. 1000 or No. 1500), repeat it many times, and then get a bright surface.
The polishing wax is selected from high-quality products. Car polishing wax can be used. For small scratches or getting old, manual polishing can be used: After polishing with 1500 water-resistant paper, use car surface abrasives to rotate repeatedly. Actions to brighten the surface, and even toothpaste can be used instead of abrasives, but the grinding time is relatively much longer. The surface of the acrylic bathtubs of major brands has been specially treated, which is more abrasion resistant than ordinary acrylic bathtubs. In case of accidental scratches on the surface, if the scratches are light, lightly brush with toothpaste and a toothbrush; if the scratches are deep, it is recommended to seek professional advice and ask professional maintenance personnel to deal with it.
The paint gelatin on the bathtub can be cleaned with turpentine water. Many chemicals can cause acrylic to lose its luster, such as thinner. Usually only need to clean with No. 1 detergent, do not use corrosive detergent.
Cast iron bathtub
Cast iron bathtub is a very heavy and durable material. The enamel on its surface is generally thinner than that on steel bathtubs. Abrasive components should not be used when cleaning this bathtub. The disadvantage of this bathtub is that the water will quickly become cold. Cast iron bathtubs are usually bulky (except for tens of thousands of high-end products), expensive, and not very good in heat preservation. But its advantage is its long service life.
The bathtub can be cleaned with acid-free detergent, and the non-abrasive soft sponge pad can be used to clean the dirt that is difficult to remove on the non-slip surface of the bathtub.
Cast iron bathtub** is prone to scratches. If there are rusty scratches, first remove the rust spots with a decontamination powder, then wipe with a dry cloth, and then apply a special adhesive for repairing the bathtub, and the scratches will not expand. To clean the bathtub, you must use a sponge and detergent instead of a hard brush.
Wooden tub bathtub
When the wooden barrel leaves the factory, it will be coated with a layer of tung oil, so in the first few days of purchase, you must keep the bathroom ventilated and open the window regularly. , So as not to make the home full of pungent smell. **Water seepage occurs in the initial test. This is a normal phenomenon. After filling the water, you should soak for more than 12 hours to fully infiltrate the wooden barrel. The seepage phenomenon of the wooden barrel will stop. If there is any problem, you should contact the manufacturer in time.
Because the wood itself will expand and contract with heat, it should not be directly exposed to the sun or exposed to cold wind. If it is not used for a long time for more than two months, the wooden barrel can be soaked and sealed with a large plastic bag to avoid The air takes away moisture. It is best to put a little water when not in use to make it absorb water and keep the wood saturated and moist, but not too much water, because the bathroom itself has a certain amount of humidity. Pay attention not to keep the dirty water after bathing, so as to prevent the wood from absorbing sewage and accelerating aging or producing mildew.
After the barrel is used for a period of time, the iron wire fixed on the outside of the barrel will be a little loose. At this time, the barrel can be upside down first, then the iron wire is tightened, and hot water is added to continue using. The thickness of the wood on the wall of the wooden barrel will vary. Generally, a wooden barrel with a wall thickness of 2 cm to 3 cm is selected for the best heat preservation effect.
