HOMEPLUS SHOWERS - CARE & MAINTENANCE
HomePlus Showers are manufactured from toughened safety glass, durable hardware and the finest aluminium, providing a top quality product for your bathroom. With proper care and maintenance, your HomePlus shower will provide many years of worry free use.
Maintenance of these high quality showers requires regular cleaning, which will counteract any limescale build up or calcification. This will increase the longevity of the shower and help to maintain its good looks.
Shower doors/enclosures are designed to be leak proof under normal shower conditions. However, they can leak if excessive water pressure is directed at the door, so care should be taken not to do this.
Excessive force should not be used when opening or closing the shower door, as this may damage the door.
For the very best cleaning results your shower should be cleaned with a squeegee or clean dry cloth everytime it is exposed to water, ie at the end of every person’s shower.
Proper ventilation is also vital for the ongoing durability of your shower.
1 - Clean the shower lining with a neutral/mild cleaning liquid such as HomePlus Shower Clean and warm clean water. Only ever
use a soft clean cloth or sponge for cleaning.
2 - Rinse well with warm clean water.
3 - If you prefer, a general glass cleaner or HomePlus Shower Clean can be used to clean your shower glass.
DO regularly rinse your shower enclosure to prevent build up of soap, shampoos etc.
DO NOT use solvents or harsh detergents on any of the shower enclosure as this can scratch and damage surfaces, including the glass.
POWDER COATED / ANODISED ALUMINIUM - CARE & MAINTENANCE
To comply with warranty requirements and to extend the effective life of anodised/powder coated finishes, very simple maintenance and regular visual inspections should be scheduled and undertaken.
In general, anodised or powder coated aluminium in urban areas should be cleaned every three months and every six months in rural areas. In industrial and marine environments (within 1km of the sea), monthly cold water washing as well as six monthly washes, with warm water & detergent, is necessary.
1 - Carefully remove any loose deposits with a wet sponge.
2 - Wash down using a soft brush (non abrasive) and a mild household detergent solution to remove dust, salt, dirt and other deposits.
3 - Anodised finishes with greasy deposits or hard to remove grime, should be cleaned with a soft cloth dipped in white spirit, turpentine or kerosene, then wiped with a dry rag.
4 - Rinse off with lots of clean fresh water.
DO remove obvious deposits as they occur.
DO NOT use abrasive steel wool, scrapers, scouring liquids or powders to remove paint splashes - these will damage your anodised/powder coating.
DO NOT use aggressive solvents, thinners, petrol etc, on powder coating as these solvents will attack gloss levels and reduce its life expectancy.
DO NOT let any solvents used on anodised finishes come in contact with any rubber components as they can degrade them.
DO NOT expose your anodised/powder coatings to excessive heat, heaters or hot air guns - these may damage the coating.
