Cleaning & Maintaining Stainless Steel

Cleaning & Maintaining Stainless Steel

Stainless steel products should be kept clean at all times. The secret to stainless steel’s ability to maintain a high quality finish and promises of a long life expectancy is the invisible chromium-oxide film that sits on the surface and protects the steel beneath. To maintain this film it is essential that the surface remains clean and in constant contact with oxygen. If this film is penetrated (either by abrasion or chemically) and dirt, liquid, grime contaminants embed themselves in these micro chasms for an extended period of time, the chromium-oxide film is not regenerated and the steel below will eventually become damaged and discoloured.
