Standard ceramic finishes
Geberit bathroom collection ceramics are coated with a thin glaze, creating a smooth and easy-to-clean surface, making it very durable. However, harsh impact by various objects such as dropping deodorant cans, perfume bottles, electric razors or any other bathroom accessories can damage the glaze and can lead to irreparable cracking to the glazed surface.
For daily cleaning we recommend using standard household sanitary cleaners.
Lime scale deposits and residues can be removed with standard lime scale removers or vinegar-based cleaning agents.
Abrasions on the bathroom ceramics caused by contact with metal utensils such as steel, titanium, brass or copper can be identified by grey and black dots or lines.
- These traces look very similar to cracks and cannot be removed with conventional cleaning agents. To eliminate them, we recommend using sandpaper or ceramic cooktop polishes.
- However, the repeated use of these products can damage the entire ceramic surface – it is therefore recommended that they are solely used on the affected area rather than the entire ceramic surface.
Important note: Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when using cleaning products.
Ceramics with KeraTect® ceramic glaze
Geberit has developed KeraTect®, a protective glaze for ceramics that ensures a beautiful smooth surface, optimising hygiene and ease of cleaning. KeraTect® is a durable, non-porous, fired ceramic glaze which is glossy, very smooth and durable, helping prevent staining and dirtying of the ceramics.
All products glazed with KeraTect® require no special cleaning instructions. Even abrasive cleaning agents cannot harm this easy-to-clean surface. The smooth surface facilitates safe regular cleaning.
Rising vapours from cleaning agents or disinfectants can attack plastic toilet seats and lids, therefore the toilet seat should always be lifted or, if necessary, removed when cleaning the ceramic pan. The surface of our toilet seats is non-porous, meaning they already offer optimum hygiene. Consequently, mild and preferably, natural cleaning agents are recommended for cleaning and care. Abrasive and aggressive cleaning agents containing chlorine and acid must not be used.
