The beauty of aluminum products
by Olson is in their ease of maintenance. Pollutant films caused by auto or local
industry emissions can cause an acid type build-up on baked enamel painted surfaces.
This can usually be removed with
periodic cleaning with household dish soap. Mix a few tablespoons of dishwashing
liquid with warm water and apply liberally to all exposed surfaces. Rinse with
clean water. DO NOT USE ABRASIVE OR SOLVENT TYPE MATERIALS OR PAINT REMOVERS
/ THINNERS. THESE MATERIALS CAN SOFTEN, DULL OR REMOVE THE BAKED ON ENAMEL FINISH!
To remove mildew
Black spots on the surface of
your aluminum products may be caused by mildew. Watch carefully for rain protected
areas such as the underside of your awning or roof. To eliminate mildew, purchase
a product specifically designed for removal of mildew stains on painted surfaces.
Protecting the finish
A quality automotive wax can be
applied to help preserve the factory finish on your aluminum products. Clean
and dry surface and apply as per manufacture’s directions. Just as the
finish on your automobile requires protection, your painted aluminum products will benefit from the same.
Use caution around sharp
Be careful when cleaning any aluminum
product, as there may be sharp edges and corners which could cause harm. The
use of protective gloves when cleaning aluminum products is recommended.
