Most parts cleaning equipment is constructed out of durable stainless steel. Stainless steel is the ideal material for parts cleaning equipment because it’s durable, versatile, and also reasonably easy to keep clean. However, if your business doesn’t properly maintain your stainless steel equipment, it can get dirty and grimy. In today’s blog post, JAYCO Cleaning Technologies discusses the best ways to clean the stainless steel on your parts cleaning equipment.
One of the most common mistakes made when cleaning stainless steel is using the wrong materials. For example, hot water might seem like a good idea, but water without any other cleaning agent can lead to ungainly streaks. The best cleansers include dish soap and water, white vinegar, and even club soda. It’s also essential to use the right towel. A clean microfiber cloth works best. If that is not available, paper towels are a better option than coarser towels and rags.
Unlike other metals and much like wood, stainless steel has a grain. Most people notice the lines in stainless steel but don’t realize that those lines are part of a grain. Scrub and wipe with the grain when cleaning stainless steel on your parts cleaning equipment. Cleaning stainless steel against the grain can lead to unwanted streaks, incomplete cleaning, and even scratches to the surface.
The best way to prevent streaks and stains on your stainless steel parts cleaning equipment is to make washing your machinery a regular habit. While you don’t need to clean your stainless steel equipment daily or even weekly, cleaning your machinery regularly prevents the need for deep cleans every few months. Keep up the good practice of wiping your machinery off regularly to keep debris and grime away.
