Countertops can be constructed from a variety of materials, one of which is stainless steel. Many modern kitchen designs in Sydney use this particular material for various reasons.
For instance, they are resilient against most damages. Second, they’re more hygienic compared to other countertop materials. Still, they will require regular cleaning and maintenance if they are to last you for a long time.
Cleaning Stainless Steel Countertop
Cleaning a stainless steel countertop is relatively easy. Most of the time, wiping the countertop with a damp cloth is enough to get rid of dirt and grime. Of course, you’ll need to make sure that you wipe the surface with a dry cloth afterwards. This will remove any unsightly watermarks left behind by the damp cloth.
Sometimes though you’ll come across some tougher messes that will need a more thorough cleaning. This is especially true when it comes to grease buildup.
To remove an oily mess, mix a few drops of dishwashing liquid with water. Dampen the cloth with this cleaning solution and wipe the countertop surface clean. Then wipe the soap away using a clean cloth and clean water. Again, be sure to dry the countertop completely afterwards.
There are cleaning solutions and agents made specifically for stainless steel countertops. There are also polishers which you can use to give your countertop a nice shine. Considering using these products if you want to create a squeaky clean and put a mirror-like finish on your countertop.
Stainless Steel Countertop Maintenance
Modern kitchen designs in Sydney that make use of stainless steel countertops will require some maintenance activities to preserve your stainless steel countertop’s looks and structural integrity.
For instance, it may sound surprising, but yes, stainless steel countertops do suffer from rust from time to time. As the name suggests, it stains “less” – meaning it is not “completely” immune to rusting. Fortunately, regular cleaning is often enough to prevent rusting.
For minor scratches, you should be able to clear this up using a steel polisher. However, for deeper scratches, you should consider getting the help of a professional.
