Qualicoat ensure that the decorative and protective properties of your coated material are maintained
To ensure that the decorative and protective properties of your coated material are maintained, it is recommended that a regular cleaning program is undertaken.
The timing of such a program will be dependent upon a number of variables. Some of these include:
- The geographical location and surrounding environment; e.g. marine, humidity, prevailing wind.
- Atmospheric Pollution (industrial / rural).
- Protection by other buildings and / or surrounding vegetation.
The best method of care is by regular washing of the coated surface using a solution of warm water and a mild detergent, washed with a soft cloth or sponge. Rinse thoroughly with water to remove residue.
In no circumstances should abrasive cleaners containing ketones, ethers or alcohols, or harsh materials such as steel wool, be used. For stubborn stains use mineral turps or methylated spirits on a soft cloth.
Coated surfaces can be cleaned at the same time as glazing for convenience. Depending on the environment, your care and maintenance program could vary between once per annum in a rural situation, to monthly intervals in industrial high pollution instances.
