Whilst being extremely durable, stainless steel must be treated with care not just during installation but throughout its life.
Tea Staining – Rust-Like Marking
Tea Staining and marks that look like rust can occur on stainless steel for a variety of reasons. The marks are caused by contamination from other metal materials (even a tool not made of stainless) and often occur during installation and project construction. We recommend that all stainless steel products be protected on site after installation, particularly whilst other trades are working in the same area.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleaning of stainless steel grating can be done with domestic stainless polish. Domestic stainless steel cleaners are generally capable of removing marks and/or tea staining – for more difficult to remove marks, a stainless steel pot scourer followed with an appropriate cleaner and protector should suffice.
Note: Do not use cleaning products that contain acid.
