How to Clean a Fiberglass Tub Surround How to Clean a Fiberglass Tub Surround
Fiberglass tub surrounds are easy to keep clean; however, they need to be cleaned properly so that they stay looking great for years to come. Tub surrounds are constantly exposed to hard water stains, soap, and hair products. If not properly maintained, they can take on a dull appearance.
Step 1 - Remove Excess Dirt From Fiberglass
Before you attempt to actually clean your fiberglass tub surround, rinse the material with clean water. Turn on the shower and direct the flow of water to the walls. Doing so will loosen soaps and other products, facilitating the cleaning process.
Step 2 - Spray On Cleaner And Wipe
Spray cleaner on your tub surround and let the solution soak. Then use a soft, clean cloth to wipe the surface of your walls, making sure that you do not leave any streaks or residue behind. Only use cleaning products that are recommended by the manufacturer or products that are safe to use on fiberglass surfaces. Using unapproved commercial products might result in damage to the walls. If your tub surround is new, you risk voiding the warranty if you use unapproved products.
