How to restore chrome commercial faucets?




May 4, 2010

Hello
My name is Keith Fuller, I live in the mid west and own a Commercial cleaning service, a lot of my buildings bathroom faucets are in good working condition but look bad because the chrome plating is gone. I see a business opportunity for a new business if there is a inexpensive way of restoring these faucets, which are the best systems and processes? please help.

No such animal as "cheap" chrome that you would want your name attached to. That and it is a dirty nasty business with all kinds of tree huggers after you.

For starters read the FAQ on chrome plating www.finishing.com/chrome.shtml

It is almost certainly cheaper to replace the old faucets than it is to properly refurbish them.
