Proper cleaning of hand sprays and overhead showers: Remove limescale, avoid damageMaintaining shower heads, even large overhead showers: It’s not rocket science. However, the wrong means and methods can damage the high-quality surfaces or even the inside of the products. At worst, this will reduce their function.
To avoid this, your customers should do the following:
- Always use a soft, clean cloth – but never abrasive items such as pad sponges or microfiber cloths
- Don’t use steam cleaners – high temperatures can damage the showers
- Only use gentle cleaning agents, based on things like citric acid
- Never use cleaning agents containing hydrochloric acid, formic acid, chlorine bleach, or acetic acid – they're much too aggressive. Cleaners containing phosphoric acid can also only be used under certain conditions
- Never mix cleaning agents
- Do not spray cleansers directly on showers – spray mist can penetrate into the shower and cause damage. Instead, pour cleaning agents on a soft cloth and wipe the surfaces with that
- Finally, rinse the showers thoroughly with clear water.
