Care and Maintenance

Cleaning and Maintenance of Your Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is easy to clean. Washing with soap or a mild detergent and warm water followed by a clean water rinse is usually quite adequate for domestic and architectural equipment.

 An enhanced appearance will be achieved if the cleaned surface is finally wiped dry.

 NEVER USE STEEL WOOL OR OTHER HARSH ABRASIVES AND SCOURERS TO CLEAN STAINLESS STEEL - THIS WILL SCRATCH THE STAINLESS STEEL, MARKING THE LOCAL AREAS AND GIVE A DULL APPEARANCE!
