Here are some easy tried and tested techniques to take good care of your steel balustrade:

#Setting a Routine:

You need to be mentally ready to invest time and energy regularly for cleaning the stainless steel balustrade. Taking one day out every week or fortnightly is more than enough for maintenance. If the balustrade is in an open space then you might have to narrow down the time period to twice a week and regular checks for damage. Regular cleaning will cover dusting and wiping the balustrade to keep it free from any dust or grime. It will help you maintain the shine of the steel and at the same time offer good grip while climbing up or down the stairs.

#Thorough Cleaning:

When you have ample time to clean the stainless steel balustrade, you will need some cleaning solutions. Either you can buy some from the market or prepare one at home. A mild detergent and warm water are more than enough to wipe the balustrade clean. Make sure you use a soft sponge or a clean cloth for wiping the balustrade.
