tips for ceramic sinks
To remove most everyday stains from your sink, simply wipe the sink down with warm soapy water and a cloth after use then dry thoroughly. In most cases china rubbers will clear away marks, which we recommend using with washing up liquid.
In hard water areas limescale deposits can build up on the sink over time. The limescale can also become strongly coloured by drinks such as coffee and red wine, so we recommend the use of a solution of three parts hot water to one part white vinegar to remove the deposits. Simply apply, leave for a few minutes, then rinse away with water. If stains become ingrained in the bowl, an overnight soak using diluted biological washing powder should easily remove the marks.
It’s important strong chemicals such as bleach, ammonia, caustic soda, white spirit and sterilising solutions are never poured down the sink. If this should accidentally happen, quickly wipe the spill away and rinse with plenty of water to avoid long-term damage. It’s also important to avoid dropping sharp objects into the sink, as this may scratch or damage the surface.
taking care of your taps
Due to the more decorative nature of taps, it’s essential you avoid using abrasive powders or scouring pads to clean them. In almost every case, warm soapy water and a cloth will restore them to their original shining glory.
As with your sinks, limescale can have an adverse effect on your tap. In the event the tap nozzle becomes clogged we recommend cleaning it with an old toothbrush in order to brush away the unwanted deposits. We also suggest periodically removing the nozzle and soaking in a diluted white vinegar solution to prolong its life.
Debris, grit and contaminants within the water system should always be flushed through the system prior to the installation and commissioning of your tap to ensure they do not come into contact with, or damage/clog, the valves within the tap.
