Do you love soaking in a tub after a long day at work? Well, you are not alone! Those soaks in the tub is the one reason why bathtubs are still being sold and installed in homes all around the country. A jetted tub is a wonderful addition to your home, especially if you’re starting to feel age catch up with you at the end of the day.
Here are 4 factors that will help you decide if it is time for a new bathtub:
- Stains: Stains can make your bathtub look really bad, but that is not the worst of it. Those stains also become a breeding ground for harmful germs and bacteria. Scrubbing and sanitizing your tub is a great place to start, but if those stains will not come out, then it is time to replace your tub.
- Leaks: If your bathtub is leaking, then you have a major problem. It can be difficult to fix the leaks in a bathtub and the result can be a buildup of mold and mildew. While it is cheaper to fix the leak, it may be more expensive long term by the time the leak is found. Plus, the leak will most likely re-open and need to be repaired once again.
- Mold and Mildew: If you have mold and mildew growing inside your tub, you do not even want to attempt to clean it. Your tub is already causing respiratory problems, allergic reactions, and nervous system disorders with everyone inside your home. You will want to have it removed immediately and replaced with a brand new one.
- Difficult to Use: Taking a bath should be a relaxing experience, so if your bathtub is difficult to use, it needs to go. If you are having a hard time getting in and out of your tub, you may want to consider a walk-in bathtub. Adding grab bars to your tub is another option that will make it easier for you to get in and out.
There is no reason for you to skip your evening soaks in the tub, so if your bathtub is showing signs of age, you should replace it with a newer tub that is more conducive to your need to relax.
