Mildew and Mold. Yep, that’s what we call Re-Bath Quality!

We have both a fan and a window where the Re-Bath installation was done, and we use the approved and recommended by Re-Bath cleaners daily. We live in a non-humid area, and it is pretty much summer at this posting time of this.
Too bad we have a terrible mildew problem now in our Re-Bath Shower. We point this out after another pain in the backside cleaning of the fungus.

We were told we would never have to worry about mold and mildew in our Re-Bath shower, but we now know firsthand about the level of “integrity” and “honesty” of Re-Bath sales people and franchise operators.

We were told that the adhesive and caulking had compounds (fungicides) in them to eliminate the possibility of mold and mildew. We wonder why it began grow so soon after the installation? Actually we know why, cheap materials poorly installed by people who mislead us when they told us about what we were being sold…

Another word of warning to all potential Re-Bath (or whatever new franchise name your local post Re-Bath "scammer" is using) customers. You would be well advised to not trust them. If you have a mildew or mold problem now and want them to relieve you of that problem, they probably won’t be able to do it. Don’t believe their B.S. promises, do some homework. The system they sold us does not work in our home and they will not honor their “guarantee”. The only possible guarantee is that you too will likely be dissatisfied.

Back to scrubbing… Maybe we will start posting photos to show the crappy work and subsequent reality of one of the worst mistakes we ever made, contracting with our local Re-Bath.

If you find a self cleaning bathtub or shower please let us know! Rebath should come by every now and again so they can clean the body oil and soap scum off you shower. Why dont you just get another fucking shower if you dont like this one you fucking cry baby!!!

I too was told that I would never have to worry about mold, yet my shower is starting to show mold here and there and it is inside their caulking. I know your pain Hal!

We too have problems with mold. Our Rebath contractor came back and fixed it once but the mold is baaaack. The contractor told us that the problem was that the first time they used an older type caulk but that the new caulk would stop regrowth of mold. Not! Also, he told me that bleach is the way to kill mold. Again--not! The more research that I do, the more I find that bleach actually FEEDS mold and should not be used. I am waiting to see what he says when he calls me back this time. I'll keep you posted!

This was posted in response to part of our blog by the person responsible for the original shoddy work and who decided to rip us off instead of adhering to his promises:

"If you find a self cleaning bathtub or shower please let us know! Rebath should come by every now and again so they can clean the body oil and soap scum off you shower. Why dont you just get another fucking shower if you dont like this one you fucking cry baby!!! "

Just a reminder that we are sure this post was made by the owner/manager of the Re-Bath we contracted with.
As you can see, the level of "customer service" is, hmmm, shall we say personal and unique?

How many of you would like to be treated and spoken to this way when the contractor screws up?

"Welcome to Re-Bath... How may we rip you off and cry about when we get busted?"

And yes, sadly the mold is still a permanent part of our "Mold proof shower" by Re-Bath.
