Kitchen faucets are often exposed to heat and cold as well as alkalis, fats or acids. This is why hansgrohe manufactures high-quality faucets that retain their function, design and shine for many years to come, without time-consuming care. Use the care tips shown to continue enjoying your faucet for many years to come. Just clean it now and then and free it from limescale!
Depending on the variant, our kitchen faucets are characterized by high-quality, shiny chrome plating or a durable stainless-steel look. Both materials stand for durability and make cleaning easier. Cared for with the right method and good cleansers, you can keep the wonderful shine for a long time to come. Whether chrome or stainless steel: It still pays to take a few basic rules to heart when cleaning.
Properly eliminating limescale deposits can prevent lots of annoying consequential damage because limescale is not just aesthetically problematic, it can also impair functions, such as the spray pattern.
Correctly cleaning the faucet is quick and easy to do. The pull-out hose of your kitchen faucet is also easy to clean and, if need be, replaced (instructions are included with each spare part). Please observe our cleaning recommendations, because damage due to improper handling is not covered under our warranty.
The aerator is also known as a perlator, jet regulator or spray insert. This is the nozzle located at the faucet spout. Many of the aerators on hansgrohe faucets are equipped with anti-limescale function (QuickClean). They can be cleaned without additional cleaning agents: by hand.
A hansgrohe kitchen faucet with QuickClean technology features flexible silicone nozzles on the aerator. Limescale deposits accumulate here over the course of everyday use (in greater or lesser quantities, depending on water hardness). These are a breeze to remove: Simply rub your finger over the silicone nozzles. The water will then flow uniformly and fully from the aerator once again.
If a more involved cleaning of the aerator should be required, unscrew it and place it in a container with decalcifying citric acid-based cleaning agent. After a maximum of 10 minutes, you can remove it and rinse thoroughly under clear water. Repeat the cleaning as necessary, and then you can screw the aerator back in place on your kitchen faucet.
