Daily cleaning and maintenance of faucets
Posted on February 10 2023
After a period of time, the faucet will produce a lot of stains, which will greatly reduce the aesthetics of the faucet. In addition, if you do not pay attention to the maintenance of the faucet, it will also affect the normal use of the faucet. The following editor will introduce to you the precautions for cleaning and maintenance of kitchen and bathroom faucets.
The cleaning and maintenance precautions for kitchen and bathroom faucets include the following three points:
Gently open and close
Don't use too much force to switch the faucet, just turn it gently. The metal hose of the shower head used in the shower should be kept in a natural stretch state, and should not be folded into a dead angle to avoid breaking.
Even high-quality faucet products must rely on proper cleaning and maintenance to exert their maximum function. The correct way is to wipe with a neutral cleaning solution and a soft cloth. Avoid using alcohol-based and acidic cleaners when cleaning, because they will damage the surface of the faucet.
Develop good cleaning and maintenance habits
- Because the water contains a small amount of carbonate, it is easy to form scale on the metal surface and cause corrosion on the surface of the faucet. Therefore, it is necessary to wipe the surface of the faucet with a soft cotton cloth or sponge with neutral soap water, and then dry the surface with a soft cloth. And the cleaning outlet is equipped with a screen to clean the impurities and scale in the screen.
- After taking a bath, it is best to clean the water in the shower, and then hang it up. Do not put the shower directly on the switch to form scale. If scale has accumulated, gently scrape it off with a pencil tip or chopsticks, and then wipe it clean with a rag.
- For scale, rust, etc. on the faucet, just wipe the surface with a damp cloth or sponge dipped in a little special detergent, then dry it with a clean rag or rinse it with water. Dip in toothpaste with a soft-bristled toothbrush or wipe gently with a scouring pad dipped in toothpaste to remove scale and oil and make the surface of the faucet clean and bright.
- Many people only pay attention to the surface of the faucet when cleaning the faucet. In fact, the inside of the faucet is more important. If the water output from the faucet is reduced or the water is forked, it may be caused by a clogged bubbler. You can remove the bubbler, soak it in vinegar, clean the sundries with a small brush or other tools, and then reinstall it.
There are many reasons why the faucet leaks. If it is just a simple leak, you can repair it yourself. If water leaks at the water outlet, it is caused by the wear of the shaft gasket. Simply unscrew the gland with pliers, remove it, and replace with a new axle spacer. If there is water leakage in the lower part of the safety bolt, it is caused by the wear of the triangular gasket in the gland. Take out the triangular gasket inside the gland and replace it with a new one.
