Maintenance of COLORBOND® steel and ZINCALUME® steel is very simple. Regularly washing your COLORBOND® steel or ZINCALUME® steel with water will prolong the longevity of the product.
Applications whereby it is regularly washed with rainwater should not require this maintenance eg. roof cladding. Applications that will need this maintenance would be wall cladding under eaves, garage doors and the underside of eave gutters.
Areas that are not regularly washed by rainwater should be hosed down at least every six months and more frequently in coastal areas and areas where high levels of industrial fallout appear.
In cases where the procedure above does not remove all dirt, you can follow these simple
– Wash the surface with a mild solution of pure soap or mild non-abrasive kitchen
detergent in warm water.
– Application should be with a sponge, soft cloth or soft bristle nylon brush.
– You must be gentle to prevent shiny spots.
– The COLORBOND® steel must be thoroughly rinsed with clean water immediately after cleaning to remove all traces of the detergent.
NEVER USE ABRASIVE OR SOLVENT CLEANERS on COLORBOND® steel or ZINCALUME® steel.
