Below are some tips to keep your stainless steel products looking like new
For the preservation of stainless steel, regular maintenance is strongly recommended. The following provides a guide to preserving stainless steel, grades 304 and 316.
As for all surfaces, stainless steel requires cleaning to remove dirt and grime. The level of cleaning, maintenance and inspection required depends primarily on the environment. In some exterior instances, normal rain washing is sufficient.
In more polluted or corrosive environments, particularly in coastal situations and swimming pools, the surfaces require regular washing to maintain their good looks. We recommend regular washing of stainless steel surfaces.
Stainless steel does not rust as normal carbon steel does. Rather, corrosion is generally caused by contaminants settling on the surface of the stainless steel. Therefore a well-managed environment, including maintenance and inspection, is integral to the appearance and longevity of stainless steel.
