Cleaning and maintenance

How are the different materials maintained?

Stainless steel sinks

Stainless steel sinks are generally very hardy but can become discolored on the surface if dirt is left for a long period of time. Dirt and discoloration can often be removed with all-purpose cleaners or specialty products from the sink supplier, which should be used accoring to their instructions. Scartches in the steel surface are inevitable.

Composite sinks

Boiling taps can discolor composite sinks, due to repeated exposure to boiling water on a concentrated area - avoid this by opening the boiling tap directly where the water is to be used (cup/pot etc.). The respective washing suppliers have special products for maintenance that should be used regularly and according to their instructions.

PVD coated sinks

The respective sink suppliers have specialty products for maintenance that should be used according to their instructions. Avoid prolonged contact with acidic foods such as juice, ketchup, tea, alcohol. Avoid all contact with bleaching detergents. ATTENTION: Basket valves in coloured surfaces must not be cleaned in the dishwasher!


Cleaning that applies to all materials

For daily cleaning, use sulphoric acid on a damp cloth, soft sponge or brush. Rinse with clean water and dry with a wrung-out cloth to avoid limescale deposits.

Cleaning that applies to all materials

Prevent limescale deposits by mixing sulphoric acid and a little vinegar. Vinegar prevents limescale deposits on the sink. Avoid prolonged contact with harsh cleacning products and chemicals, by rinsing the sink with water immediately.

Brass sink

Brass has been very popular in interior design in recent years, if you choose a solid brass sink, you should be aware that the material requires proper maintenance to keep looking good. However, be aware that patina is a prerequisite if you choose a brass sink.

Cleaning and maintenance

Daily cleaning is done with water and/or mild detergent on a damp cloth, soft sponge or dishwashing brush. Rinse with water and wipe with a wrung-out cloth.

Strong cleaning agents such as drain cleaner, oven cleaner, chlorine etc. will discolor the sink. Scouring sponges/scouring powder will scratch the sink.

Pay attention to the following:

  • For the first period of time after use, the sink will be stained, but over time a more uniform patination will appear.
  • The sink can be polished with a brass polish (follow the sink manufacturer’s recommendation), but patination will start again immediately. Polishing should only be done in the abrasive direction of the material.
  • Avoid leaving food in the sink, especially acidic foods such as ketchup, juice, alcohol etc. as these will discolour the surface.
  • Limescale deposits can be prevented by mixing dishwashing detergent and a little vinegar.
Scratch resistance

Brass sinks will get surface scratches when put into use. These are only of visual significance.
