Cleaning Recommendation for Hansgrohe Products
Modern lavatory faucets, kitchen faucets, and showers consist of very different materials to comply with the needs of the market with regard to
design and functionality. To avoid damage and returns, it is necessary to consider certain criteria when cleaning.
Cleaning Materials for Faucets and Showers
Acids are a necessary ingredient of cleaning materials for removing lime, however please pay attention to the following points when cleaning
faucets and showers:
•
Only use cleaning materials which are explicitly intended for this type of application.
•
Never use cleaning materials which contain hydrochloric, formic, phosphoric, or acetic acid, as they cause considerable damage.
•
Never mix one cleaning material with another.
•
Never use cleaning materials or appliances with an abrasive effect, such as unsuitable cleaning powders, sponge pads, or micro fiber
cloths.
Cleaning Instructions for Faucets and Showers
Please follow the cleaning material manufacturer’s instructions. In addition, pay attention to the following points:
•
Clean the faucets and showers as and when required
•
Use the amount of cleaning product and the amount of time recommended by the manufacturer. Do not leave the cleaner on the fixture
longer than necessary.
•
Regular cleaning can prevent calcification.
•
When using spray cleaners, spray first onto a soft cloth or sponge. Never spray directly onto the faucet as droplets can enter openings
and gaps and cause damage.
•
After cleaning, rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove any cleaner residue.
Important
Residues of liquid soaps, shampoos, and shower foams can also cause damage, so rinse with clean water after using.
Please note: if the surface is already damaged, the effect of cleaning materials will cause further damage.
Components with damaged surfaces must be replaced or injury could result.
Damage caused by improper treatment is not covered under the warranty.
