Cleaning and maintenance tips for faucets

2019-12-13

First, simple cleaning tips

Faucet cleaning is not complicated, as long as you keep it constantly, you can make the faucet last as long as new.

1. If it is a copper faucet, if you want to clean the electroplated surface, you can use boiling water and detergent to scrub it, or you can directly use some strong detergent to degrease.

2. The scale and rust on the automatic faucet, just wipe the surface with a damp cloth or sponge dipped in a special cleaner, and then wipe it with a clean rag or rinse with water.

3. Dip toothpaste with a soft-bristled toothbrush or gently wipe it with toothpaste with a clean cloth to remove scale and oil stains, leaving the surface of the faucet clean and bright.

4. Many people only notice the surface of the faucet when cleaning it, but the inside of the faucet is more important. If the water output from the faucet is reduced or the water fork is generated, it may be caused by a blocked bubbler. Remove the bubbler, soak it in vinegar, clean the debris with a small brush or other tool, and then reinstall it.




Second, the faucet cleaning matters needing attention

Although the chrome plating of the faucet is claimed to be corrosion resistant and not rusty, incorrect cleaning methods can still cause abnormal wear on the faucet.

1. Do not wipe the surface of the faucet with a hard object such as a steel ball, because the steel ball is very hard and it is easy to scratch the surface of the faucet.

2. It is best to use a neutral detergent for cleaning. Strong acid and alkaline cleaners are not suitable for cleaning with a water tap.

3. After the faucet is cleaned, the remaining water on the surface should be wiped with a dry lint-free towel to avoid residual water stains.


Third, the use of faucet maintenance skills

1. Do not switch the faucet too hard, just turn it gently. Even traditional faucets don't need a lot of effort to twist. In particular, do not use the handle as an armrest to support or use it.

2. The shower hose metal hose of the bathtub faucet should be kept in a natural stretched state. Do not coil it around the faucet when not in use. At the same time, when using or not in use, pay attention not to form a dead angle at the joint between the hose and the valve body, so as not to break or damage the hose.

3. When the water pressure is not less than 0.02mpa (that is, 0.2kgf / cm2), after using for a period of time, if the water output is reduced, or even the water heater is turned off, the filter can be removed to remove impurities. Generally can be restored as before.

4. Have experienced and qualified professionals for construction and installation. During installation, the faucet should try not to hit hard objects, and do not leave cement, glue, etc. on the surface, so as not to damage the surface coating gloss. Pay attention to remove the debris in the pipe before installing the faucet.
