Thank you for trusting Armortech Resurfacing with your refinishing project. Below we have listed the best practices in caring for your newly refinished surfaces and will help you keep the newly refinished surface clean and attractive for many years to come. Failure to follow these guidelines may cause you to void your warranty.

  1. DO NOT wet the refinished surface for 18-24 hours after the refinishing work is completed.
  2. DO NOT replace hardware or disturb new caulk for at least 10 hours after work is completed.
  3. DO NOT use any liquids or powder cleansers that contain abrasives, bleach or strong acids.
  4. DO NOT use steel wool, brushes, or abrasive scrubbing pads.   
  5. DO NOT place decorative or anti-slip stickers on the tub bottom or walls.
  6. DO NOT place any type of sticky or suction cup mat on the tub bottom or floor.
  7. DO NOT use or place suction cup shelving on refinished shower stall walls.
  8. DO NOT use steam cleaners. Steam cleaners can cause excessive heat shock which may cause blistering and subsequent adhesion failure.
  9. Regular cleaning is important. To prevent dirt and soap scum buildup clean with soft cloth, sponge or chamois and warm water with either a soft soap or liquid detergent and/or non-abrasive bathroom cleaners. Recommended cleaners you can use are dishwashing soaps like Dawn, Joy. Ivory, etc.…, Simple Green, Formula 409, Fantastic, Windex, Bon Ami, Scrub Free, Soft Soap, and Mr. Clean without bleach; or you if you prefer a natural cleaning solution you can use a clear ammonia and water mix (at 2-3 ounces ammonia per gallon of hot water). Any of these cleaners will clean the refinished surface without dulling the finish.
  10. Repair leaking faucets right away. The constant dripping of a leaky faucet or shower head can cause premature wear, drain rust and coating failure.
  11. Do not use acids on the finish. If using a chemical drain cleaner, carefully pour it into the drain without spilling it on the refinished surface. If spilled, wipe up immediately and rinse thoroughly with cold water. Other chemicals such as hair dyes can also cause damage and should be avoided.
  12. To keep your bathtub in the best condition do not store soaps, shampoo bottles, etc. on the corner ledges. Water can get trapped underneath and in time, this can cause the finish to discolor or fail. A hanging shower caddy works well to store these items.
  13. Protect your refinished finish with a periodic wax. Liquid car wax works well to protect the finish and can make it easier to clean. Follow the directions on the container for use. Waxing around the drain will also keep water and rust stains from forming. Apply wax every 3 months or so. Never wax the bottom of a bathtub, it will make your bathtub or shower very slippery and dangerous!
  14. Accidental chips and scratches. Should the refinished surface become chipped or scratched give us a call to repair it. Though not typically covered by warranty, accidental chips and scratch repairs are quite affordable to repair and should be done as soon possible to avoid any further damage to the refinished surface. Deep scratches and or gouges that penetrate through the decorative layer may require re-coating.

    Follow these steps to keep your refinished tub or shower looking great for years to come.


Caring for your refinished surfaces will take a minimal amount of time, but it will need to be done on a regular basis to keep it shining for many years. If you have questions feel free to ask your coating specialist at Armortech Resurfacing, Inc. to make sure you know and use the right cleaning tools and supplies to clean your refinished surface.

About Armortech


Surface restoration and refinishing is not just what we do, it is our passion and our craft. And, it is our dedication to our craft that allows us to approach each project with enthusiasm and a desire to provide the highest level of craftsmanship each and every time.

Prior to establishing Armortech Resurfacing, the two founders honed their craft, and accumulated decades of experience working for others in the construction industry, including one of the top land-based flooring contractors in the country. Over those years, they not only mastered the multitude of techniques and procedures required to expertly apply a variety of epoxy products to many very different surfaces. They also gained the project management skills needed to successfully run multiple teams of skilled tradesmen and laborers for an interior design firm servicing some of the biggest names in the cruise line industry, in drydocks from Europe to the Bahamas.

After reaching the proverbial glass ceiling, they decided to break out on their own and formed Armortech Resurfacing, Inc. with the vision of bringing their decades of expertise working with specialty coatings and seamless epoxy flooring to their community, friends, and neighbors.

We look forward to the opportunity to earn your business and are confident our meticulous attention to detail, dedication to quality craftsmanship, and service will make us your first choice when considering a specialty coatings contractor.
