Maintaining Your Chrome Electric Shower

Creda 53557581 10.5kW All Chrome Electric ShowerChrome is a very popular material for showers, due to its very clean and eye-catching look and feel. However, as it is very sensitive and soft when it comes to certain things, it is a little trickier than other materials to clean and maintain. Trickier, but not impossible, as we will show you in the post below. We have put together some tips and advice for cleaning and maintaining fixtures, especially showers, with chrome finishes and will also briefly review one of our favourite showers made with the smart and sophisticated material.

Cleaning Chrome Using A Commercial Cleaner

The problem with having chrome products and fixtures in your bathroom is because heat and moisture create the perfect environment for bacteria and mould to grow. This is why it is important not only from a cleanliness point of view but also am hygiene standpoint to use a powerful cleaner to prevent lime-scale and other unwanted things growing and spreading.
Apply a small amount of high quality chrome cleaner (whichever you prefer) to a clean, cotton cloth and wipe over all the chrome in your bathroom, Leave this for the time suggested on the product’s instructions and then rinse with ram water. Use either a paper towel or a dry chamois to remove any residue of the cleaner.

Cleaning Chrome Using Home-made Solutions

As well as the commercial cleaning products you can buy in your local supermarket or online, there are some home-made solutions you can use to make your chrome look good as new.

Detergent And Warm Water

Although it may seem too good to be true, detergent and warm water are ideal for chrome.

Important Tip

When you are cleaning your chrome surfaces you need to avoid scratching them, so you should never use anything too abrasive such as steel wool to clean. Test any tools and products on an unnoticeable, small area first.

Maintaining Your Chrome

Once you have cleaned the chrome surfaces thoroughly, you will want them to stay that way. This can be done by using a good quality chrome wax as a protective layer between the material and dirt. Use a soft cloth to apply, following the directions on the product label.
