Frequently Asked Chrome Tap Questions
Why choose chrome taps?
Chrome is a favourite finish for many styles of bathroom or kitchen thanks to its contemporary and clean appearance. The shiny surface glistens thanks to its reflective qualities, bringing a sleek and elegant look to both bathrooms and kitchens wanting to boost their aesthetic appeal. Chrome taps are the way to go if you want fixtures which are not only more affordable than other finishes, but are also very easy to maintain for years.
How long do chrome taps last?
Chrome taps are highly durable, and can last for 10-15 years when cared for and given the correct maintenance to keep them in top condition. How long chrome taps last can depend on a range of factors such as whether you are in a hard water or soft water area, how often the fixtures are used on a daily basis, and how well they are looked after. Cleaning chrome taps regularly with a simple wipe from a damp cloth will keep them looking their best, preventing the finish from tarnishing.
Are chrome taps brass underneath?
Most chrome-plated taps are made with brass underneath due to its resistance to corrosion and durability in frequent contact with water. There are also lots of products which are created with an alloy of brass or zinc as a base which is then plated with a shiny layer of chrome to give it an appealing finish. Brass is an excellent choice as it brings with it strength and hardiness while the chrome plating allows the final finish to match a range of bathroom and kitchen designs.
Are chrome taps the easiest to clean?
Chrome is by far one of the most popular finishes when being used in bathrooms and kitchens as chrome taps are one of the easiest fixtures to clean. They don’t require much maintenance, and a simple wipe with a damp cloth is usually enough to maintain their sparkle and shine for many years. Chrome cleaners are available to remove any signs of tarnishing or water spots, and you should always use a soft cloth as chrome taps can be scratched by abrasive cloths or cleaning materials.
What’s better, chrome or stainless-steel taps?
Both chrome and stainless-steel taps are a great choice whether you want to use them in your kitchen or bathroom thanks to the fact they are durable and have excellent aesthetic appeal. However, chrome has a preferred reflective appearance which is characteristic of modern and fresh spaces, whereas stainless steel taps tend to be more expensive and have a more muted finish. Chrome taps will blend in with just about any décor style you have chosen for your room.
Can you put bleach on chrome taps?
Chrome taps are relatively easy to maintain and don’t need any special chemicals or products to keep them from looking their best. When cleaning with bleach, it is best to avoid using it on your chrome taps as it may have a detrimental effect on the shiny finish. Bleach is corrosive and may cause discolouration of the chrome plating if used regularly on the product. A mild cleaner with a soft cloth is recommended for cleaning chrome. If you do get bleach on your chrome taps, rinse it with water.
