How to look after your stainless steel
Stainless steel is a great alternative to wrought iron and is seen as more of a modern alternative to the traditional black, wrought iron railings you often see. Here at Sykes Bespoke Steel we are able to offer both
Benefits of Stainless Steel
One of the benefits of stainless steel, as well as it giving a more modern look, is that it is relatively easy to clean. Although not maintenance free it is low maintenance. Washing it with soap or mild detergent and warm water followed by a clear water rinse is usually quite adequate for most stainless steel.
Here at Sykes Bespoke Steel we only use marine grade 316 stainless steel which gives a better quality finish and is more resilient than the alterative 304 grade stainless. As the name suggests 316 is marine grade so it can be used at sea (on the decks of ships) and in coastal areas without fear of erosion
We use this grade of stainless steel in all our products not just ones which are potentially open to erosion from nearby water, wind, harsh elements etc.
Cleaning Your Stainless Steel
Where stainless steel has become extremely dirty with signs of surface discolouration (perhaps following periods of neglect or misuse) then alternative methods of cleaning will be needed. A full list of these can be found on the British Stainless Steel Association website at https://www.bssa.org.uk/topics.php?article=77
Of course if you take advantage of our quality stainless steel you may also have our toughened glass panels fitted too and these will need to be cared for just as you would any other type of glass surface you have at home
So if you are thinking of having stainless steel in your home, know that it can offer you a different kind of look for your home, is easy to maintain and looks amazing!
