What are some of the top reasons commercial bathroom owners consider stainless steel for their materials? And while maintenance needs are low for these products, there are still a few important basics to keep an eye on – what are these? Here’s a primer in this two-part blog series.
Low Maintenance Benefits
First and foremost, let’s go over why stainless steel is such a beneficial material to work with when it comes to maintenance needs. Stainless steel itself is both non-porous and corrosion-resistant, due to the fact that it’s high in chromium – this means it will not risk rust or other forms of corrosion whatsoever, even when exposed to moisture regularly.
In addition, stainless steel is resistant to minor scratches. And even when a larger scratch does take place, it can be easily buffed out. And when you combine these benefits with the sleek, clean and modern aesthetic that comes with stainless steel, it’s a no-brainer for many commercial bathroom owners.
Our next few sections will go over cleaning and maintenance needs and frequencies for stainless steel bathroom stalls.
Basic Cleaning and Airborne Particles
While stainless steel is easy to maintain, it should still be cleaned on a regular basis, especially in a bathroom setting. It’s important to clean every part of stainless steel bathroom stalls, not just those that are touched by people – this is because airborne particles often move around in a bathroom setting, and they may attach themselves to any part of the steel, not just the sections people touch.
For simple cleaning, we recommend using warm water and a mild detergent that’s appropriate for metal products. We’ll go over some recommendations for specialty cleanup types in part two of this series.
