Two things are essential for a relaxed bathing experience: maximum comfort and reliable hygiene. Hygiene is particularly important if the washroom is used daily or by multiple people. Germs and dirt spread easily and settle quickly on bathroom surfaces. The right cleaning product is important for a clean bathroom – but modern technologies can prevent dirt and breeding grounds for bacteria from developing in the first place. Find cleaning tips for your bathroom here.
Refreshing, invigorating, pure
Since the beginning of time, crystal clear water has been the symbol of cleanliness and freshness. We use it in the bathroom every day for personal hygiene and grooming, from brushing our teeth to invigorating showers and hot, relaxing bubble baths. Cleanliness and hygiene are at the heart of Villeroy & Boch’s bathroom designs. This is why we offer high-quality, durable ceramics and bathroom fittings made from hygienic stainless steel for an all-round refreshing bathing experience. The new Villeroy & Boch shower toilets provide a fresh and clean feeling by cleansing gently with fresh water after using the toilet.
Hygiene topics at a glance
Bathroom ceramics - ViFresh
If you can no longer detect any fresh fragrance and the foaming effect in the toilet bowl disappears or is greatly reduced, you should replace the rim-block / refill the toilet gel.
The lid is made from hard-wearing plastic and therefore very robust. In normal use, the lid should not break. However, only flush the toilet if the ViFresh lid is closed as otherwise water could escape.
Please ask your plumber or wholesaler.
The ViFresh adapter is very tough. However, in the unlikely event that something is not working correctly, we offer replacement parts. In such cases, please contact your plumber or wholesaler.
Rinse the holder thoroughly under running water each time you refill toilet gel or replace a rim-block to guarantee lasting benefit. Use a mild soap solution to clean the toilet. Do not leave the toilet seat or hinges damp. Dry them with a soft cloth. Contact with toilet cleaners or chlorinated, abrasive or corrosive cleaning agents may lead to damage or surface rust on the seat/lid and hinges. You should therefore always keep the toilet seat and lid raised until the cleaning agent has been flushed away.
Simply turn the ViFresh lid to the left or right until you hear a soft clicking sound. Lift the lid and remove the holder. Clean it under running water to remove any residue. Refill the holder with a new rim-block / toilet gel. Then return the holder to the flushing pipe and close the lid. Make sure that the seals have been cleaned and are dry and positioned correctly.
You will find a wide selection of products in supermarkets, pharmacies or online. We recommend the use of standard toilet fragrance blocks no larger than the size of the ViFresh holder or standard gel cleaners.
The process has been designed to be as intuitive as possible in order to eliminate virtually any risk of error. However, to ensure you can enjoy the benefits of the ViFresh toilet for as long as possible, we recommend that you rinse the holder under running water each time you replace a block or refill gel. When you replace the basket, please make sure that the seals are clean and in the correct position.
Thanks to a special process, the surface of CeramicPlus is dirt-repellent, so that water and oily substances form droplets and run off the surface, conveying dirt and scale particles into the drain. If something should get stuck, then CeramicPlus is much easier to clean.
Standard all-purpose cleaners and a sponge with a soft, non-scratching surface or a microfibre cloth are best for the regular care of CeramicPlus. Abrasive cleaners should not be used as they could impair the beading effect.
All CeramicPlus products have a "Cplus" stamp. On some products the lettering and stamp are combined: A capital C with the supplement "CeramicPlus Villeroy & Boch".
CeramicPlus is resistant to all standard cleaning agents. This also applies to products that contain acids, solvents and tensides. Exceptions are scouring powder and prolonged contact with alkaline products (pipe cleaner, mould remover).
CeramicPlus is available for our entire range of bathroom ceramics and ceramic sinks. The colours Starwhite, Beige, Manhattan and Edelweiss are only available in the CeramicPlus version. White and Pergamon are available both with and without CeramicPlus.
CeramicPlus is resistant to disinfectants. The manufacturers' instructions for these products must be observed. Exceptions are products with pH 12 and chlorous products, which can impair the effect of the CeramicPlus surface after prolonged contact.
We give an availability warranty for all colours in the ceramic sink range at the time of purchase. The warranty is valid for 10 years from the date of purchase and is based on the ceramic models in the current range at the time when a further purchase is to be made.
Furthermore, we offer a 10-year availability warranty on some products in the O.novo and Omnia Architectura series. You will find further information here.
If you have a complaint, please contact your specialist dealer. The wholesaler or your contractual partner will then notify the responsible staff member for the complaint to be processed. Your concern can thus be dealt with as quickly as possible.
Minor damage or chipped glazing on the ceramic surface can be touched up with a repair pen. To order, please contact info.b(at)villeroy-boch.de by e-mail.
