   stainless steel cleaning and maintenance

Stainless steel is widely in used for balconies and handrails. Stainless steel is known for its ability to be a clean surface that resists corrosion and rust. Dirt, dust and grime, however, put stainless steel at risk for corrosion, contamination and rust. Appropriate cleaning and maintenance is necessary.

Here are some tips you may need.

1) General cleaning :
Plain old warm water and soap, work well to remove fingerprints, smudges, etc. and restore shine. Just be sure that your cleaner does not contain chlorides. If you have any question about this, there are stainless steel-specific products available at most hardware and big box stores.

2) Maintenance :

1. Water and a cloth. Routine cleaning can be accomplished by using warm water and a cloth. This is the least risky option for cleaning stainless steel handrails. Dry with a towel or cloth to prevent water spots. Wipe in the directions of the polish lines.

2. Mild detergent, (dish washing liquid) and cloth. If the stainless steel handrail exhibits corrosion marks or contamination marks, or has been a long time since last clean and for cleaning that needs more power, mild detergent and warm water can do a great job without damaging the stainless steel. Make sure you rinse the surface thoroughly to prevent staining and spotting d using a towel to prevent water spots which can be caused by minerals such as calcium in water (hard water).

3. Glass cleaner for fingerprints. Fingerprints are one of the biggest complaints about stainless steel handrails and parts, but can be taken care by using glass cleaner. Rinse thoroughly and towel dry. There are some newer types of finishes for stainless steel that resist fingerprints.
