The Ultimate Guide to Care and Cleaning for Your Isenberg Faucets and Rain Heads

As a luxury homeowner, it's essential to maintain your faucets and rain heads in pristine condition. Your faucet is not just a functional piece of your bathroom or kitchen; it's a centerpiece that adds to the aesthetic appeal of the space. Proper maintenance goes a long way in preserving its appearance and functionality. They're an expression of your refined taste and an integral part of your home's aesthetics. But even the most premium fixtures require regular care and attention to retain their luster and optimal functionality.


Revive The Shine Of Your Taps

If your lackluster taps have started to lose their shine and look unappealing, this could be due to the following reasons:

Limescale Buildup:

With time, limescale, a solid, off-white deposit primarily consisting of calcium carbonate, begins to gather in the tap's filters, resulting in a reduced water flow.

Dirt On The Handle:

The handle is the most frequently touched part of the tap, and thus, it accumulates dirt that requires cleaning.

Hard Water Stains On The Faucet:

Hard water, rich in calcium and magnesium, can leave behind unsightly brownish discolorations on the tap.

Grime At The Tap-Sink Junction:

This tricky-to-clean location, perpetually moist, is an ideal spot for dirt and grime to collect.

In this guide, we'll walk you through the best practices for maintaining your Isenberg faucets and rain heads:

Regular Cleaning and Drying

The best way to keep your Isenberg products shiny and spotless is by incorporating their care into your daily routine. Whenever you use your faucets or rain heads, remember this simple mantra: 'When you dry your hands, dry your faucet.' Use a soft, damp cloth and water to gently wipe away any residual water drops on the surface. This prevents water spots and keeps your fixtures looking brand new.

Avoid Harsh Chemicals

Preserving the finish and overall look of your Isenberg fixtures means avoiding the use of harsh or abrasive cleaning chemicals. These can degrade the surface over time and diminish the luster that sets Isenberg faucets and rain heads apart. Instead, a soft damp cloth and water are your best cleaning tools.

Weekly Wipe-downs

If you live in a hard-water environment, your fixtures may be prone to calcium deposits. To prevent this buildup, it's recommended to give your faucets and rain heads a weekly wipe-down with a soft, damp cloth and water. This simple task helps maintain the health and appearance of your fixtures.

Periodic Deep Cleaning

For those times when you need to combat hard water deposits or stubborn grime, consider using a solution of equal parts white vinegar and warm water. Dip a soft cloth into the solution and rub it gently over the faucet. Rinse it off with warm water and pat dry. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaning materials, which can damage the finish of your faucet.

Maintenance of Rain Heads

Your Isenberg kitchen spray heads, shower heads, and hand showers are designed with flexible spray jets. These jets allow you to easily dislodge small calcium deposits by rubbing your thumb or fingers over them while the water is running. Regularly performing this action will keep the waterways clear and ensure a smooth water flow.

Aerator Care

The spray pattern of your faucet is determined by the aerator. If you notice any changes in this pattern, it could mean debris has made its way into the water lines and clogged the aerator. Don't worry – you can easily find out how to remove, rinse, and re-install the aerator — Visit the specification pages and parts diagram on our website for the faucet that you’ve installed. Take for example, the Pull Out Kitchen Faucet, Dixie™ - K.1230, on its Product Info page, you’ll find Product Docs besides the description (bottom right corner of the screenshot). These documents will help you understand the product parts and how to install the product once you’ve cleaned it.
