Revitalize Your Bathroom Oasis: The Transformative Power of Upgrading to a Beautiful Replacement Tub
Bathtubs are a great way to relax and unwind. However, stains, chips, cracks, and mildew can ruin the look of your tub and damage your home. The average bathtub remodel includes subfloor repair or replacement and floor reinforcement to support heavy tubs, like cast iron. Rerouting pipes or electrical wiring also costs money.
Efficient & Attractive

Using laundry detergent is an easy way to get rid of mold growth, soap scum residue and other grime on your bathtub.

This will remove any germs that might be lodged there. Once you’re done, fill the tub with warm water and run the jets on high for 10 to 15 minutes in order to flush out the remaining gunk.
Add Value to Your Home
