The faucets in your home should be cleaned after each use with a soft, damp cloth and if necessary, a mild, non-abrasive soap to alleviate water spotting and/or lime deposits, which may be caused by water conditions in your area. Most newer faucets are manufactured with a clear, protective coating to provide beauty and durability for many years to come, however, improper cleaning products/methods will result in tarnishing or discoloration. Faucets found to have acid burns from cleaning fluids will not be covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. There are products available to help protect your faucets such as Flitz faucet wax, which you can purchase at our store in Trinity or any retail plumbing supply.
Is your faucet pressure diminishing?
Faucet aerators are the screened attachments that are screwed to the spout end of kitchen and bathroom faucets. Aerators, which add air to the water as it leaves the faucet, should be removed and cleared of debris frequently to preserve adequate water pressure at your faucets. Showerheads should also be regularly cleaned of debris to maintain proper water pressure. Soaking the aerators in a vinegar and water solution will help clean slight mineral deposits and help with the flow.
