No Dirt Unnoticed: Innovations for Cleaner Bathrooms

|Apr 28|magazine8 min read

SINGAPORE, April 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Geberit Rimfree water closets and KeraTect® special glaze for bathroom ceramics create a virtually dirt-repellent bathroom.

How clean is the toilet?

Whether it is in the home, office, shopping mall, school or any commercial building, toilets are arguably the most visited rooms in that place. With toilets being such damp, high traffic zones, unsanitary toilets can be one of the biggest threats to public health.

Commercial buildings can increase the number of cleaning staff or shift frequencies, and you could even commit to cleaning your own toilet at home more frequently. However, no matter how rigorous the cleaning, somehow there is always that stubborn lingering odour.

A clean bathroom is a safe bathroom. There may be areas in the toilet that many would not think to clean or is near impossible to reach even with the harshest bathroom cleaners, therefore allowing bacteria to grow. So, here are two innovative bathroom products you may not have heard of that ensure a more sanitary bathroom.

Dirt-Repellent Bathroom Ceramics

Ceramic surfaces in the bathroom are tricky – they often develop stains but must be treated delicately to prevent scratches.

This is because when examined closely, standard ceramic glazes on bathroom ceramics have jagged surfaces that trap dirt and bacteria.

Ceramics baked with the Geberit KeraTect® special glaze are noticeably smoother than standard glaze surfaces. The KeraTect® surface is non-porous, which prevents dirt and stains from sticking to the ceramic surface. Moreover, the special glaze enhances the durability of the bathroom ceramics and render them scratch-proof, so ceramics remain in their glossy, pristine state for a long time. KeraTect® surfaces clean with just one swipe as dirt and bacteria glide off the KeraTect® surface easily.

The Geberit Citterio washbasins are baked with Geberit KeraTect® and beautifies any bathroom with its puristic contours.

An Unusually Clean Flush

In conventional WC pans, the water flows down from a flush rim and into the bowl. This flush rim promotes deposits for bacteria, lime scale and urine scale, and is very difficult to clean. Over time, black or brown discolouration form in the toilet rim that is unsightly and unsanitary.

With Geberit Rimfree toilets, there is no flush rim. The toilet bowl has an entirely smooth inner surface that can be cleaned with just one swipe without harsh toilet bowl cleaners. Instead of a rim, the WC pans have a specially developed flush guide where the water flows from a centralised point and around the pan.

WCs from the Geberit Acanto bathroom collection have a timelessly modern, soft and organic design. Besides being Rimfree, they WC seats have QuickRelease hinges that makes cleaning quick and easy.

WCs from the Geberit iCon bathroom collection offer different options, such as slim design WC seats and attractive angular options if the standard round WCs are too conventional.

The Ultimate Hygiene Solution

The Geberit Citterio WC is both Rimfree and baked with KeraTect® to ensure maximum bathroom hygiene. What more, its unmistakable, rounded design bring an elegance to any bathroom.
