Linear Drain Cleaning & Maintenance

Now that your beautiful LUXE shower drain has been installed for some time, you may be wondering how to clean it? We will give a quick run down right here.

As a rule of thumb, avoid abrasive cleaners such as bleach when cleaning your LUXE Linear Drain. To aid in the longevity of the drain, it is best to use more mild cleaning agents. For our standard linear drains, constructed of 100% stainless steel, we recommend mild soap, Bar Keepers Friend or Soft Scrub [*the one with no bleach*]. For our polished stainless, Matte Black, Oil Rubbed Bronze and other custom finishes, we recommend mild soap and a soft cloth – microfiber cloths, an old washcloth, or dish towel – all great options.

So cleaning the grate seems easy enough, but what about the channel? All LUXE Linear Drain kits come with a lifting key. Yes, that little plastic or metal piece in the box that you might not have been quite sure what to do with. Threw it away? Not to worry, contact us and we will be happy to send you another. OR if you would rather, you can simply use a flathead screwdriver.  Totally a matter of personal preference. We are just here to offer you of a simple solution with items you probably have laying around the house.

We would also like to note that stainless steel does not rust due to the metal composition. “Hard water” can cause small, speckled deposits on the stainless steel that have the appearance of rust. These pesky specks can easily be cleaned with soapy water and the backside of any dishwashing sponge, Bar Keepers Friend or Soft Scrub. For more information on hard water and how it can affect your drain, please see our blog post here.
