We Have a Reputation for Cleaning Old Stainless Steel

Cleaning old stainless-steel components restores the original condition of the material and increases its longevity. Even though it’s highly resistant, there is a possibility of surface damage through oxidation, corrosion and rusting. You have to properly maintain stainless steel for it to remain intact. Old 2 New Stainless is a company that assists in cleaning and polishing stainless steel components.


Common Mistakes People Make Regarding Dull Stainless Steel

Stainless steel contains a little chromium that creates a shield called the passive layer, which delays the onset of corrosion. Naturally, the higher the content of chromium, the more resistant the stainless is to damage. When that protective layer wears out, the stainless steel becomes exposed to external factors, thus causing it to corrode. People attempt restoring the material and then make these mistakes:

  • The immediate reaction to clean stainless steel is to use a particular bleach. However, stainless steel and chlorine aren’t a great combination, and it compromises the durability of the material. If you spill bleach by accident, rinse it out with water immediately.
  • When you come across a dull stainless-steel item, the reflex action is to grab a piece of steel wool or a hard steel brush to scrub out the top layer of grime that you assume is prohibiting the shine. If you decide to use these elements to clean the surface, it leaves little particles which then turn to rust. You’re better off using a microfiber cloth or sponge.
  • On the other hand, not addressing a stain or residue will eventually damage the stainless steel. Hence, you must take action immediately by using water and a mild cleaner to remove any stains. If you don’t have success, then it’s time to call in the professionals.
