Keeping your hot tub clean is important!

4 Reasons to Keep Your Hot Tub Clean

Most people cherish their hot tubs. Slipping into its warm waters and between its jet streams is the perfect end to a long day or a strenuous workout. Some people like to entertain guests in hot tubs for a safe and fun activity which releases stress and toxins all at once. Others need them to relieve the symptoms of certain health issues.

To continue enjoying your hot tub, SERVPRO of Rutherford County has some suggestions on how you can keep yours in optimal condition.

Maintain Clean Water

Pure, clean water adds to your experience. It also keeps your body clean during and after use. Clean water can also save you from embarrassment that is sure to come by inviting guests into dirty water. More importantly, cloudy, grayish and brownish water can signal a problem in your tub's operating and filtration system. A good cleaning will often identify and flush out old problems as well as prevent new ones.

Prevent Mold and Bacteria

Mold is a health hazard. So many homeowners neglect its buildup in their homes, and subsequently, friends and family members fall ill. When your tub is dry, freestanding mold releases invisible spores which can embed in the lungs,but when the tub is in use, the steam's vapors can carry the harmful effects of mold. You want to make sure your family and guests breathe good, clean air.

If you run a business with commercial tub usage, this suggestion cannot be stressed enough. Customers affected by mold can lead to lawsuits, heavy fines, stiff penalties and even the closure of your business.

Reduce Slime Buildup

Pink and white slime are more than unattractive. They multiply fast. Bacteria, algae and other microscopic organisms are responsible for the sticky film left underwater in your tub. This contamination can cause odors, feel nasty, and signal a deeper problem in your system.

Avoid Permanent Staining

One of the most unpleasant outcomes of poor maintenance and servicing is staining. It is a shame to invest so much money in something you enjoy only to let it diminish in value, if not use, because of a bad appearance.
