The restoration process of old enamel or damaged acrylic bath is usually done in a matter of 6-8 hours and the bath is usable again the next day.
Here are a few main steps of the process (and these are similar steps for shower trays resurfacing also) :
- partial masking of your bathroom walls and floor, setting up the ventilation system and my workspace. If your bath is built-in, the silicone is cut out and new silicone will be applied free of charge at the end of the process;
- chemical (2 steps strong cleaner) and mechanical cleaning to remove any scale, residue and loose materials.
- further preparation including etching (if needed), filling chips and scratches and other repairs, followed by final masking;
- one more chemical cleaning/degreasing, applying the bonding primer and topcoats;
- drying the surface;
- colour sanding and machine polishing for extra smoothness and gloss;
- de-masking and tidying up the bathroom, silicone application for built-in bathtubs;
- a run-through of aftercare instructions and guarantee with the customer;
The safety steps and equipment I use, guarantee that the tenant and myself are safe during the application process and afterwards. I’m also covered with liability insurance and have been checked for DBS. I do all the bath resurfacing projects myself, so there’s the same person looking after you from start to finish and you can be sure that the quality will be at the top level every time. All baths restored by me are covered with craftsmanship or product fault warranty.
