Bathrooms are notorious for being slippery, and one of the best ways to prevent accidents in the bathroom is by installing anti-slip bath stickers. These stickers come in various shapes, sizes, and colours, and are designed to provide traction and grip to prevent slips and falls. In this article, we will provide a detailed guide on how to install anti-slip bath stickers.
Step 1: Choose the Right Stickers
The first step in installing anti-slip bath stickers is to choose the right stickers for your bathtub. There are different types of stickers available in the market, and it's important to choose the right one that suits your needs. Factors to consider when selecting stickers include the size of your bathtub, the material of your bathtub surface, and your personal preferences.
Stickers come in various sizes, and it's important to measure the flat surface of your bathtub to determine the right size of stickers. You also need to measure the curved surface of the bathtub to ensure that the stickers fit properly. If the stickers are too big or too small, they may not provide sufficient traction, which defeats the purpose of installing them.
The material of your bathtub surface is also an important consideration. If your bathtub is made of porcelain or ceramic, you can use any type of anti-slip stickers. However, if your bathtub is made of acrylic or fibreglass, you need to choose stickers that are specifically designed for these materials. Using stickers that are not compatible with your bathtub surface can damage the surface or cause the stickers to peel off.
Lastly, consider your personal preferences. Anti-slip bath stickers come in various colours and patterns, so you can choose stickers that match your bathroom décor or your personal style.
Step 2: Clean the Bathtub Surface
Before you install the anti-slip bath stickers, you need to ensure that the surface of your bathtub is clean and dry. Any dirt, soap scum, or other debris can prevent the stickers from sticking properly, so it's important to clean the surface thoroughly.
Start by wiping the surface of the bathtub with a damp cloth to remove any loose debris. Then, use a bathroom cleaner to remove any dirt or soap scum. Rinse the surface with water and dry it with a clean towel. Make sure the surface is completely dry before you proceed to the next step.
Step 3: Apply the Stickers
Once the surface is clean and dry, it's time to apply the anti-slip bath stickers. Start by removing the backing from one of the stickers. Place the sticker on the surface of the bathtub, pressing down firmly to ensure that it sticks. If the sticker is too large, you can use scissors to trim it to the appropriate size.
Continue applying stickers in a pattern that provides good coverage and traction. You can apply the stickers in a straight line, in a grid pattern, or in a random pattern, depending on your personal preference. Make sure that the stickers are evenly spaced and that there are no gaps between them.
Step 4: Smooth Out the Stickers
After you have applied all the stickers, use a credit card or a similar tool to smooth out any air bubbles or wrinkles in the stickers. This will ensure that the stickers adhere properly to the surface of the bathtub.
Step 5: Let the Stickers Set
Once you have smoothed out the stickers, let them set for at least 24 hours before using the bathtub. This will give the stickers time to adhere properly to the surface and ensure that they provide good traction and grip.
Step 6: Test the Stickers
After 24 hours, test the stickers to ensure that they provide good traction and grip. You can do this by stepping into the bathtub with wet feet and checking if you can stand securely without slipping then your bathtub and shower will be ready to use.
