A Kraus Stainless Steel sink is a finely crafted fixture, comprised of the finest materials available. As a combination of 16-gauge thickness for immense durability, and type 304 steel for corrosion resistance and rustproofing, our sinks are incomparable. Like most other fine products, they do require light maintenance to continue optimal performance.
If you ever see white calcification on your sink surface it is generally the result of minerals in your local water supply. It can be easily wiped away using the prescribed cleaning methods below.
Stainless steel sinks should be rinsed and dried after each use, and wiped with a mild cleaner approximately once per week. We recommend Bio-Clean for cleaning all Kraus products.
Kraus Ceramic Sinks are extremely durable. They do however require a certain amount of maintenance to ensure their longevity.
At the end of heavy use, or on a daily basis, the sink should be wiped with a soapy sponge to remove any sort of chemical residues (e.g. tooth paste, mouth wash, etc.). For routine cleaning, nothing more is required than warm water and a mild detergent. While infrequent maintenance is required to protect and maintain the glossy finish of a ceramic sink, for the most part the use of harsh chemicals is not required.
Minimal maintenance is required to ensure the continual performance of your Glass Vessel Sink. We suggest cleaning your sink after each use with a soapy sponge, then rinsing thoroughly with warm water and drying it with a towel or a soft cloth. Keep in mind that a glass sink is similar to a wine glass, and anything impure on the inside will leave streaks that are highly visible on the outside.
Do not be alarmed if you notice stains on your glass sink, minerals in your water supply sometimes cause buildup. In order to eliminate these stain spots, use a non-abrasive or mild-abrasive cleaner as mentioned earlier. Remember not to apply force while cleaning your glass sink. Do not scrub the glass, as you may scratch the surface of the sink. When finished, rinse thoroughly with warm water and dry with a towel or a soft cloth.
Your Kraus product is designed for a lifetime of use with light maintenance. Basic cleaning involves wiping the faucet with hot water and then drying. Regular attention will prevent buildup of stains and grime.
We do NOT recommend using any type of commercial household cleaner on our products. Variations in the chemical formulas of these products can make them harmful to your sink or faucet’s finish. We recommend Bio-Clean for cleaning all Kraus fixtures and accessories.
