You Asked: Why We Use Acrylic

The Bath Planet Process is all about convenient, affordable and hassle-free bath remodeling and shower remodeling services.

In order to do this, we use thick, high-quality acrylic for things like:

Over the years, many of you have wondered why Bath Planet of Toronto uses acrylic in a majority (if not all) of our projects.

And because you asked, here are the answers.

Acrylic is incredibly easy to clean

Bath Planet Toronto uses high-quality, thick acrylic

You should spend more time enjoying your bathroom rather than cleaning it.

Surface materials like porcelain, fibreglass, ceramic tile or marble can be challenging to clean. You’ll either need to use heavy creams or abrasive liquids to make them shine.

Unfortunately, those industrial-strength solutions sometimes smell and can even scratch the area you’re trying to clean.

Acrylic tubs and showers from Bath Planet on the other hand, can come sparkly clean in just minutes using common household cleaners like:

  • Dish soap
  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar

To clean an acrylic shower wall surround or bath wall surround, just wipe the surface with a damp cloth and then clean using water, whatever cleanser you wish and a soft sponge.

Acrylic is mold and mildew resistant

Acrylic is mold and mildew resistant; tile is not

In case you’re wondering, here’s the difference between mold and mildew:

  • Mold can be black or green, found on just about any surface and is very toxic
  • Mildew is usually white or grey and usually appears on moist surfaces

They do have one common trait, though: They’re both disgusting.

Acrylic walk-in tubs are non-porous, meaning that there are no holes, pores or spaces where water can pass through, get stuck and eventually grow into a mold or mildew fungus.

If you’re interested in updating your bathroom and have breathing and/or respiratory issues, using Bath Planet Toronto acrylic gives you a fresh new look which won’t harm your lungs in the long-term.

Acrylic comes in many styles and colours

There’s really no limit to the look and feel acrylic can give your bathroom.

If you can design it in your dreams, there’s a very good chance it can be brought to life using acrylic from Bath Planet of Toronto.

Acrylic is easy to install

Removing grouted tile and a fully settled bathtub is a long, messy and expensive process.

And so is installing new tiles and a new bathtub too.

Acrylic can be molded and shaped to fit over your existing fixtures perfectly. In fact, that’s how it’s done at Bath Planet.

In a nutshell, here’s how it’s done:

  • Precise measurements are taken of your bathtub and shower
  • The new elements are made to precision using the expert computer software
  • Experienced installers lay them over your old tub or shower and secure them in place.

The entire process can be done in less than a day and can save you lots of money versus a full teardown and rebuild.
