One of the questions I get most often after people buy a bidet seat from our store is “how do I take care of it?”. In order to prolong the life of your seat you will want to avoid using harsh chemicals on it. Here are a few tips that will help you get your bidet clean so that it lasts a long time.
1. Regularly change air and water filters. This helps extend the life of your bidet and keeps water deposits from building up on the nozzles. If your bidet has an air filter changing it on schedule will keep bathroom odors from becoming a problem. I recommend that you put the water and air filters changes on your calendar.
2. Gently clean all the parts of your bidet with a non-abrasive cleaner. I recommend using an old toothbrush to get in around the bolts that attach the bidet seat to your toilet. Otherwise a washcloth or paper towel and your cleaning solution will work just fine. Don’t forget to wipe down the remote as well.
3. On most bidets the nozzles are self-cleaning, but if you want to clean them they often have a quick release feature that allows you to clean them easily.
4. Sometimes people ask me whether or not dirty water from their use will end up on the bidet nozzles. Bidets are specifically set up to avoid cross contamination from different users. So this is something you never have to worry about. Especially if you are purchasing a high-quality bidet toilet seat from bidet-toilet-seat.com. We only carry high-quality units where this is never a concern.
Cleaning your bidet is very much like cleaning the rest of your toilet. Gentle cleansers will do a great job and maintaining the filters will keep it in good shape and functional for a long time.
