Yes! Bathtub Refinishing, Reglazing and Resurfacing is an essential business under the shelter in place orders of covid-19. Dallas Bathtub Services in the process of making the old outdated and worn surfaces look good again. Also provides the valuable service of sealing off lead from deglazed and chipped porcelain tubs. Lead that can leech into the bathwater and yes there are documented cases of lead poisoning caused by lead in bathwater. Dallas Bathtub Services also repairs cracks in fiberglass, acrylic and cultured marble that can cause mildew under the old surface or leaks on a second story ceiling if the tub or shower is upstairs. I always check for rust around drains and will find rusted areas under the flange of the drain which is always repaired before refinishing. Bathtub refinishing is not only a way to maintain, and restore the old surface but also prevent future damage from leaks and most important, health complications due to lead exposure or mold from leaks.

Confusing Times In Deed
Most of us are confused by the orders of non essential businesses being closed. I mean we can not get our hair cut but we can still stand in line at the grocery store. While at the grocery store we pick up items off a shelf that was probably just touched minutes before. We hear the virus lives for up to 48 hours on some surfaces like plastic and rubber,,, so are rubber gloves holding more of the virus than bare hands, If you practice hand washing like we should? Also this last question just hit me as I was combing my hair today. What happens if I step into the bathroom just to comb my hair... does my comb hold the virus for 48 hours? What about my hair? So I wash my hands...again.. then comb my hair.. then turn off the sink... but I turned the sink on before I washed my hands... so now does my comb still have the virus? Now smokers... do you open the cigarettes then take the cigarettes our by the butt of the cigarette then put them in your mouth ... and me .. I mean I dip snuff so that can of snuff that was handed to me... is the virus on that as I dip snuff? My point is simple. Let's keep people in business. Practice caution, not fear. Understand we cannot live in a bubble. Practice the 20 second hand washing guideline set forth by the CDC and not over think things like who touched those to go boxes we order at the drive thru ;)
I'm looking back at some of the pages on my website and some of my blogs. I just noticed I had not updated several of them in two years! I see one that started out "Here we are Starting a new year in 2016" I actually remember setting at my parents house visiting them and writing that blog while my wife took my mother to get her hair done. I had no Idea it had been over 2 years ago! Dallas Bathtub Services Contact Information

Bathtub painting is sometimes what people mistakenly call bathtub refinishing. However, if you are talking about the epoxy d.i.y. paint kits then it really gets confusing because they call themselves bathtub refinishing kits but are simply epoxy paint. (LOL) I am literally laughing out loud trying to explain this because I feel like I'm doing the old Abbott and Costello skit of Who's on first!
Yeah It's like that! Especially, when we throw in the terms of refinishing, reglazing, resurfacing then as I'm researching key terms for my website I find ones that i'm honestly not sure if they are legitimate words! Like reporcelain, What? What's on second! Okay so I also find repurpose which throws me for a loop because I thought when you repurpose something it would change what it was meant for. Example, If you own land, cattle and horses and use an old clawfoot bathtub for a water trough then you repurpose that tub. Who? No, who's on first!
Okay so then we have refurbish which does make sense I completely understand that one. Bathtub refacing okay I absolutely get that! In fact, That is exactly what it's all about!
Maybe an explanation would help of how these terms came to life.
Bathtub Painting - This would be because in the past even when I started in the refinishing business in 1992 we only had one choice to redo (another term!) a bathtub or tile and that was epoxy paint. It looked dull, the customer could not use bleach on it because it would yellow and it lasted about 6 months to a year depending on how often it was used. This was great for Apartments because a lease term was usually 6 mos. to a year and then they would turn the unit for the next customer.
Bathtub reglazing - because people did not know what to call it they would simply say my bathtub is not shiny, it is missing the glaze. (Which was the result of using comet or any abrasive cleaner and scratching up the surface.)
Bathtub Resurfacing, Bathtub Refinishing - These were brought about and made popular around 1999 because the bathtub refinishing Industry had made changes. There was a coating called synthetic porcelain made especially for bathtub and tile refinishing. So professional refinishers were trying to teach consumers that we no longer simply painted bathtubs with epoxy. This was complicated by the fact that some professionals refused to change coatings and still used epoxy and the d.i.y. kits started calling the kits tub and tile refinishing.
