Taking care of your shower
Wipe excess water off the walls of the shower after use as this will help in the daily upkeep of your shower. Clean the shower with a mild detergent. Never use products that contain abrasives, strong acids, ammonia or chlorine, as these can damage the shower.
Grease and soap can be removed using alkaline detergents (pH 10–12) and limescale and rust with mild acid detergents (pH 4–5). Colour loss and scratches on the shower tray can be remedied with polish and wax. Deeper scratches can be removed by rubbing with wet sandpaper (approx. 1,200 grit).
The front panels of our shower trays are detachable to make cleaning easier. Our shower cubicles also come fitted with castors, so you can easily slide the cubicle out of the way when you want to clean the floor underneath.
Cleaning your toilet
The surface of the toilet seat is easy to keep clean with regular application of a mild detergent. The part of the toilet bowl where water sits continuously should be cleaned regularly with an antibacterial toilet cleaner. Avoid rubbing too hard, as this can scratch and damage the glazed surface. The flush buttons are plastic and should not be cleaned with strong detergents.
Taking care of your washbasin
Our porcelain washbasins can be cleaned in the same way as our porcelain toilets, with a mild detergent.
Cleaning your bathtub
Regular cleaning with the right detergent keeps your bathtub hygienic and great-looking as well as extending its life. All our bathtubs should be cleaned with a mild detergent and a soft cloth to avoid damaging the surface. Scratches on bathtubs made of sanitary acrylic can be sanded and polished off.
What to do if something breaks?
