Maximizing the value of each of the fixture we buy is something the homeowners always strive. However, this can be very challenging if the objects of interest are the bathroom fixtures. While the furniture in the living room, bedroom, and kitchen are often dry and free from stagnant moisture, the total opposite can be observed to bathroom fixtures.
Everyone knows that water is one the elements that can easily wear off household fixtures, even those that are made of ceramics and wood such as toilet, sink, and even plumbing. When not taken care of properly, these fixtures will lose their aesthetic value sooner than what you expected.
Fortunately, there are ways which you easily implement to ensure that your bathroom and everything in there will maintain their value over an extended period of time. In summary, here are the key takeaways from the infographic below from Luxury Commercial Bath which reveals some tips and tricks you can implement to get more mileage out of your bath fixtures and help this room stay fresh much longer.
- We wary of trickling hard water. Hard water has a high mineral content like magnesium and calcium, which can build up in the pipes. This build up can clog the pipes, as well as the showerheads, significantly lowering the water pressure.
- Consider investing in water conditioning systems. These systems have a specialized membrane which filters minerals, reducing the scale buildup and increasing the efficiency of your water fixtures.
- Avoid overpowering your water pressure. If your pipelines are too fragile, excessive water pressure can damage. Consider turning the water pressure know down to avoid further deterioration.
- Keep your water heater in tip-top condition. Water heater systems suffer the most from mineral build up. Make sure to have it check by a professional technician on a regular basis to avoid any problems and prevent any damages.
