The leading properties of stainless steel include long life and low maintenance, so it is not necessary to maintain special stainless steel. Corrosion-resistant material of the appropriate grade with the appropriate surface treatment is used together with suitable design details and an adequate maintenance plan. Important aspects of material selection, production, welding and maintenance are always available from stainless steel manufacturers. It is therefore essential to choose the appropriate material class according to the requirements of the final product.
Routine washing of stainless steel with detergents followed by rinsing with water and drying with a cloth is sufficient to maintain the aesthetic appearance of the surface. It depends, of course, on the aesthetic requirements, location and frequency of surface cleaning. Under no circumstances is it possible to use abrasive materials such as wire wool to clean the surface. If it is necessary to clean heavily soiled surfaces, it is good to turn to experts for help.
When placing stainless steel outdoors, it should be borne in mind that joints and horizontal coating lines accumulate airborne contaminants, which is not desirable. Rainwater helps to clean stainless steel and its modeled or unidirectional surface treatment should therefore be best directed with the lines running vertically downwards, towards the free flow of rainwater.
