CLEAN STAINLESS STEEL IN 3 EASY STEPS

Stainless steel is meant to be stain proof, however, in the cleaning field, we have found this theory to be semi-true. During manufacture of the protective film used in covering the surface of stainless steel, this sometimes does not cover the entire surface. This means that the uncovered areas are open to discolouration and dirt from building sites.

Other stains can come from a lifetime use of the stainless steel, either as part of a POS (place of sale) unit or the kitchen cabinet. Food stains and watermarks are some of the many things that can stain stainless steel. If you want to remove this stain, and you have the time and desire, you can follow the steps we describe below. These pictures are from our recent commercial builders and sparkle cleaning of Marks and Spencer in Bedford.

STAGE 1
Apply any good cleaning paste along the grain lines.

STAGE 2

Rub the paste into the surface along the grain lines. If the rubbing motion is across the cleaned areas will look odd (scratch finishes) after the cleaning is completed.

Use a soft sponge to press the paste against the surface in order to scrub off the outermost layer. Do this along the grain line so that the cleaned surface will be consistent with the rest of the surface finish.
