Urinals, toilets, and partitions are necessary for the functionality of public restrooms. Over time, these sanitary fixtures and partitions can develop scratches, diminishing their aesthetic appeal.
Our crew at Yourson Construction can fix scratches on your urinals, toilets, and partitions in Albuquerque to keep your bathroom looking fresh and clean. We know how to give your bathroom that smooth and polished finish.
Below, we’ve outlined a practical guide on removing scratches from these fixtures and partitions to ensure longevity.
Before attempting any repair, it’s vital to assess the severity of the damage. Minor surface scratches can often be repaired using simple techniques, while deeper scratches may require more complex measures.
Only a few of these steps might be needed for complete repair, while other damages will require a team of professionals to step in. Assessing the damage beforehand can save you time and resources before you try to fix the scratch.
Start cleaning the scratched area using a mild detergent or a non-abrasive cleaner. Ensure the surface is free from dirt, dust, and other contaminants.
Apply a small amount of automotive polishing compound or toothpaste to a clean, soft cloth. Then gently rub the scratched area in a circular motion, applying light pressure.
Continue buffing until the scratch becomes less visible or disappears altogether.
Wipe off any residue and clean the partition with a damp cloth.
If the scratch persists, try using a plastic polish designed to remove scratches. Apply a small amount to a clean cloth and rub it onto the scratched area.
Be sure to follow the instructions provided with the polish, as different products may have specific application methods.
Clean the partition thoroughly after polishing to remove any residual polish.
You may have to fill in deeper scratches that can’t be fixed using the above steps.
For partitions, this may mean using color-matching epoxy or acrylic-based fillers.
For urinals and toilets, a porcelain wax glaze might conceal the scratch.
Make sure to smooth the filler using a putty knife or a plastic scraper, ensuring it’s level with the surrounding surface before applying. Allow the filler to dry completely before lightly sanding the area with fine-grit sandpaper to achieve a smooth finish.
Finally, clean the partition thoroughly after sanding.
After going through all these steps, your scratch should be less visible or entirely gone.
If the scratches are extensive or the material is challenging to repair, it may be best to consult professional restoration services in Albuquerque.
