We often speak to clients who say they have polished brass taps, but when they tried to polish them, found the colour changed to a dull silver!
“What have I done and what can I do?”
All this time they have possessed gold plated taps, but now they have buffed off the gold to expose a base-coating of matt nickel plating. At this stage the choice is yours…
A gold plated tap will require no buffing to keep the shine, but cleaning should only be carried out using a piece of chamois with a weak soapy solution and a duster to dry any water spots.
A polished brass tap will need a bit of Brasso to take back the oxidisation, but generally however bad they get, it won’t take too much to bring them back to a deep lustre.
Gold plating is a 3 layer process of copper, nickel and gold. We have a few different shades, to suit most tastes.
Tell us which you prefer when placing your order. Keith – 07583 406 571
