Matters needing attention in faucet cleaning

The cleaning finger joint of the faucet affects our usual water health. The general faucet has a filtering effect. If you do not pay attention to cleaning and maintenance, the faucet may bring more bacteria. However, cleaning is not a simple matter. It is impossible to clean the exterior. There are many things to pay attention to when cleaning the faucet.

Clean both inside and outside

Experts revealed that if you want to clean the electroplating surface of the copper faucet, you can wipe it with boiling water and detergent, or you can directly use some degreasing and decontamination detergent to clean it.

For scale and rust on the faucet, just wipe the surface with a damp cloth or sponge dipped in a small amount of special detergent, and then wipe it dry with a clean cloth or rinse it with water.

Although the chrome-plated layer of the faucet claims to be resistant to corrosion and rust, improper cleaning methods can still cause abnormal wear of the faucet. Do not use steel balls or other hard objects to wipe the surface of the faucet. Because the steel balls are very hard, simply scratch the surface of the faucet.

Generally speaking, the faucet should be cleaned with a neutral detergent instead of a strong acid or alkaline detergent. Dip toothpaste with a soft-bristled toothbrush or wipe it with toothpaste with a scouring pad, which can also eradicate scale and oil.

In addition, many people only notice the appearance of the faucet when cleaning the faucet, but the inside of the faucet is actually more important. If the water output of the faucet is reduced or the water output forks, it may be caused by blockage of the bubbler. The aerator can be removed, soaked in vinegar, clean the debris with a small brush or other things, and then reinstalled.

The maintenance of the faucet is very important, you can grasp the following four key principles:

1. Don't switch the faucet too hard, just roll it quietly.

2. The metal hose of the shower head of the bathtub faucet should be naturally stretched, and do not coil it on the faucet when not in use.

3. After using for a period of time, if you find that the water output is reduced, or even the water heater is turned off, you can quietly unscrew the screen cover at the water outlet of the faucet to eradicate impurities, and you will generally recover.

4. Please have experienced and qualified personnel for construction and installation.
