After a surface repair, we always advise keeping up an aftercare routine to ensure that the repair stays in place and is perfectly finished. Even though we complete every job with the utmost care and perfection, the area may still be slightly fragile, but this depends on the material the repair was done on. Treating the area with care will ensure the repair to stay seamless and long-lasting.

In this insightful article, we are going to be sharing our thoughts on the importance of maintaining an aftercare routine when we have completed your surface repair. Make sure to continue reading to find out more!

The first pointer is to allow a full 24 hours for the repair to set, this is to ensure that any materials used have completely set in place along with our fixing agents we use. If you don’t allow the full 24 hours, you could risk loosening the bonding agent and therefore removing the repairs. You could also allow water into the area which could cause further damage in the surface material.

By taking good care of your repairs can prolong the sturdiness and seamless effect of the repair. If you do come across the repairs coming loose or another appears, it is important to call a repair service as soon as you can in order to prevent further damage. This way, you can save money without having to replace the whole surface, whether it’s a countertop or a window frame.

Finally, when it comes to cleaning the area, which isn’t always necessary depending on the location of the repair, make sure you select your chosen cleaning products wisely. Any harsh chemicals such as bleach could cause discolouration in the repair therefore removing the camouflage and seamless effect and making it obvious that there’s been damage to the area. Instead, opt for mild liquid detergents like washing up liquid and lukewarm water which will work a treat compared to an ammonia or bleach-based cleaning product.
