With minor scratches, discoloration and slight imperfections on acrylic, plastic made bath or shower it is often possible to restore the surface with chemical cleaning and polishing. I often propose to restore the bath or shower instead of resurfacing. Acrylic bath repair doesn’t always mean spraying a new material on top. If the bath or acrylic shower tray is in moderately good shape and it can be treated with the surface saving method, I’m proposing it to the clients as it can save them money, while the solution is durable and effective. However, not every item I can restore this way. I don’t polish or chemically clean the vitreous enamel or offer it as a long term solution. Glass made, the vitreous enamel surface is too hard to be polished, and if it’s rough, cleaning is only a step towards a full resurfacing job. Even if temporarily clean, without resurfacing, etched, rough and dull enamel will catch the dirt within days all over again.
Please contact me for the recommended solution, if you’re not sure what type of repair would help. A quote is always free and can save you hundreds of pounds compared to replacing the damaged bath or cracked porcelain sink that is not in production no more.
