Metal surfaces and accents create texture and intrigue to the office environment, as well as adding a modern and sophisticated look. With a little in between care, your janitorial team can help preserve that look between professional restoration and maintenance from Stone Building Services. Here are some basic cleaning tips for some of the most common metal surfaces.
For normal cleaning, wipe coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in mild soap and warm water. Rinse and wipe dry. Don’t use harsh cleaners, solvents, or abrasive cleaners to keep from removing the finish.
Wipe clean with a dampened, soft cloth. Dry with a clean soft cloth. A pre-softened paste wax can protect the polished aluminum finish between professional treatments.
Bright, shiny chromed surfaces can be easily scratched with abrasive cleansers or cleaning tools. Choose a soft damp, cloth and a mild detergent for cleaning. Rinse and wipe dry.
Durable and resilient, a soft touch with a Scotchbrite pad can remove superficial scuffs and restore the surface to like new. Be careful, though, as more damage could occur. Best leave that to the pros! Clean with a soft, damp cloth.
Caution! Beware of multi-surface cleaners. Many leave residues that will at best leave a surface coating that attracts dust, prints, and dirt; and at worst, create a dangerous slip hazard. Rather than take chances, talk to the pros at Stone Building Services first.
