Stainless Steel Maintenance

Stainless Steel Maintenance
All exposed stainless steel surfaces should be wiped over with a clean cloth and warm water with a mild detergent on a frequent and routine basis.

For more stubborn dirt or stains use mild, non-scratching abrasing powders such as typical household cleaners. These can be used with warm water, bristle brushes, sponges or clean cloths. For more aggressive cleaning a small amount of vinegar can be added to the powder.

Carbon steel brushes and steel wool should be avoided as they may leave particles embedded in the surface, which can lead to rusting.

Cleaning should always be immediately followed by rinsing in clean hot water and the surface then wiped completely with a dry towel.

The maximum recommendation for routine cleaning is once a month and more often in areas subject to heavy soiling or frequent use.

Where routine maintenance is considered a pre-requisite of compliance with an associated guarantee a 'Maintenance Log' should be kept for each installation.
