Cleaning and maintenance

Stainless steel is an iron and carbon alloy that is particularly corrosion resistant; the main reason is chrome presence, which can oxidize and create a slim film able to resist external chemical agents. To keep unchanged its features, it is necessary to avoid the following actions:

  • Storage near iron elements
  • Use of same tools both for iron and stainless steel items
  • Inadequate treatment during the assembly
  • Urban and fine dust pollution

IAM Design has developed a specific stainless steel cleaning line, which is able to remove polluting elements, and able to recreate the original film protection. Combination of these products can succeed in fixing a damaged surface.


For ordinary cleaning, you can use a humid soft rag with no solvent or abrasive material and carefully dry to avoid limestone stains. Cleaning with IAM Design products at least once a year is highly recommended. In case of installation in highly polluted locations, such as cities or seaside resorts, it is necessary to do an accurate cleaning with IAM Design specific products every 1-2 months, or as soon as there are stains on the surface.
