Williams Railing’s organic powder coating should be regularly cleaned and maintained in order to protect the decorative and protective quality of the coating. We recommend that you keep a record of all cleaning schedules and frequencies so that your railing always stays in pristine shape. We’ve put together a little maintenance guide to ensure that your railing will always qualify for its 20-year warranty.
To maintain the warranty on your railing, maintenance of Williams Railing must adhere to the following steps:
- Clean your railing using warm water and a non-abrasive, pH neutral (pH 5 to 8) detergent solution. Do not use solvents such as thinners or solutions containing chlorinated hydrocarbons or ketones.
- If atmospheric pollution has resulted in heavy soiling of the railing coating, some stains or marks may require stronger domestic products, such as alcohol, petroleum spirits, white spirits or bleach diluted to five percent (5%). In this instance, rinse the coating immediately after using the cleaning.
- All surfaces shall be cleaned using a soft cloth or sponge, and no cloth shall be harsher than natural bristle.
- Cleaning agent must be rinsed immediately after application.
- If your railing is subject to any hazardous and unusual environmental factors or is located within one (1) mile of the seashore, an estuary or marine environments, Williams Railing must be consulted on an individual project basis for best maintenance practices.
After your railing is installed, you are going to want to care for your railing with some frequency.
