Cleaning Guidelines

Ceramics

Ceramics should be cleaned regularly with warm soapy water. Rinse, dry and polish with a soft clean cloth. Regular cleaning will prevent the build-up of lime scale.
Be aware that some cleaners can damage the surface of ceramics and fittings – particularly if left on for a long period of time. We particularly advise against the use of strong cleaners that contain abrasives or chemicals.

Seats

The surface should be cleaned regularly with warm soapy water. Abrasive cleaning agents may damage the surface.

Chrome plated fittings

Clean regularly with a soft cloth and warm soapy water. Rinse, dry and polish with a soft clean cloth. Do not use household cleaners that contain abrasives or chemicals.

Commitment to water saving

At Lecico we are aware that water is a unique and limited resource. We are committed to reducing the amount of water used in the operation of our WC’s; and all now come with a dual flush mechanism as standard. In addition we are now able to offer an increasing number of products within our ranges which only require 4/2.6 Litres of water. This represents a significant saving on household bills.

3L-water-label

BMA Water Label

We’ve also pledged our commitment to the European Water Label scheme, which was initially developed by the Bathroom Manufacturers Association and is now operated by the Water Label Company. This voluntary scheme provides comparative information on the volumes of water used between similar products to help inform consumers who wish to choose more water-efficient products for their homes. All of our WC’s are independently tested and have a green water label score.

Environmental Policy

Lecico seeks to:

  • Minimise the use of all materials, supplies and energy – and wherever possible use renewable or recyclable materials.
  • Minimise the quantity of waste produced in all aspects of our business.
  • Adopt an environmentally sound transport policy.
  • Communicate our environmental policy to all staff and encourage them to participate in the achievement of our goals.
  • Supply and promote, wherever possible, those products, which contribute to energy conservation and do not damage the environment.
  • Ensure that the Company continues to meet present and future environmental standards and legislation.

Packaging and Waste Reduction Policy

All Lecico companies seek to:

  • Purchase recycled and recyclable packaging where practicable, including pallets and cartons.
  • Return reusable pallets to suppliers.
  • Reuse packaging opened at branch level for internal transfers and deliveries.
  • Actively take part in recycling and reclamation schemes.
  • Within its businesses embrace electronic communication aimed at significant reduction in internal paperwork throughout the Company.
  • Ensure that the Company continues to meet present and future environmental standards and legislation.
