Schlüter-DECO requires no special maintenance or care. Abrasive cleaning agents should not be used on sensitive surfaces. The oxidation layer on brass or aluminium can be removed by using a conventional polishing agent, but will form again. Damaged anodized surfaces can be restored with paint. The surfaces of stainless steel profiles can be polished with commercial chrome-polishing products. Stainless steel surfaces exposed to the environment or aggressive substances should be cleaned periodically using a mild household cleaner. Regular cleaning maintains the neat appearance of stainless steel and reduces the risk of corrosion. All cleaning agents must be free of hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acid. Avoid contact with other metals, such as regular steel, to prevent corrosion. This also includes installation tools such as trowels or steel wool, e.g. for the removal of mortar residue. We recommend the use of the stainless steel cleaning polish Schlüter-CLEAN-CP.
