Actually, faucets don’t require daily maintenance, but you could maintenance daily for long-lasting use.
How to maintenance the kitchen faucet?
The first thing to do if you want to replace your old kitchen faucet with a new one is to make sure to turn off the water supply through the stopcock.
The next thing you will have to do is turn on the faucet and wait for all the water in the pipe to come out.
You need to place a bucket or cloth under the pipe before loosening the hose nuts because accumulated water will most likely run off.
You will then need to loosen the connections using tools like an adjustable wrench.
You must remove the old faucet by loosening a nut that holds it under the sink or counter.
The nut usually comes with a backing plate and washer. After loosening all the elements and removing them it will be easy to remove the tap from the top.
To place the new tap, you must insert the tube at the bottom of the tap into the holes in the countertop.
This faucet will also have a nut, a support plate and one or more washers that you will need to tighten with a socket wrench.
You must verify that the tap points in the correct direction and that it is fixed in the corresponding position.
Now you will have to reconnect the two hoses, one corresponding to the cold water supply and the other to the hot water and tighten them well so that there are no water leaks.
Once you have placed it correctly and have tightened all the connections and joints.
You will have to open the direct water supply again and verify that there are no leaks to ensure that you have correctly installed the tap.
How to clean the tap?
Faucets are an accessory that is given constant use. At first, when they are new.
They look very beautiful and radiant. But over time they lose their shine and accumulate dirt.
For this reason, it is essential to clean them regularly to keep them in good condition for longer and to look neat.
Cleaning the taps is not a particularly difficult task. You will not need many things either.
It will be enough to have a cloth or a soft sponge, an anti-scale product or vinegar or lemon.
Remember that water tends to have lime, some in a greater or lesser proportion, and this accumulates in the tap, leaving stains that are difficult to remove.
If you buy an anti-scale product, you must make sure that it is suitable for the material of your kitchen tap. You can also use vinegar or lemon to clean them.
In the case of vinegar, you just have to dilute a little in water and then with the help of a cloth apply the mixture on the tap.
If you use lemon, you can cut it in half and rub it all over the faucet. Then you just have to rinse it and dry it with a clean cloth.
