Unhappy 2018 XC60 Inscription door chrome tarnished

The chrome strips on the bottom of the doors are tarnished. The car is less than 2 years old. I clean it regularly. Do members know of the best way to clean and protect them?
The car is garaged 95% of the time and has only done 7600 miles.
Has anybody got the same problem? Other plastic/chrome items on the car are ok. It doesn't seem right. Maybe there was a problem when the decals were made originally?
Any comment would be welcome.

Is the tarnishing similar to what Matt @Carwow experienced with his long termer? See

He got it sorted under warranty

For what its worth my V90 has similar defect on the chrome window trim. I have raised it with the dealership when next in for service to investigate and hopefully replace under warranty.
