CLEANING

CAN I POWERWASH SIERRA SERIES?
Yes

BASIC CLEANING

Remove any formed dirt and/or using a soft cloth.

Make sure the restroom partitions in shower or hose-down areas are in well ventilated areas to allow for extra humidity to dry.

Specialized graffiti removers can safely be used on anti-graffiti ( SCRC ) coatings.

Apply self-cleaning wax routinely will make the graffiti cleaning easier. These products are gentle and normally don’t need stripping.

NOTE: Don’t clean with harsh cleaners that have abrasives, acids, or alkalis, they’ll etch, discolor or damage the surface.

These kind of cleaners include:
Abrasive powder cleaners
Toilet bowl cleaners
Rust removers
Ceramic tile cleaners

FOR GRAFFITI

Use a high quality concentrated D-limonene based solvent ( such as Bobrick Graffiti Remover ) applied with a soft cloth;
This works for issues from:
Permanent Marker
Acrylic
Enamel Spray Paints
Markers ( containing Xylene )
Metallic Markers
Laundry Pens
Paint Pens
For tough stains apply cleaner using nylon scrub pad.
Caution: Many solvents are very flammable, keep away from sparks and open flames.

FOR SCRATCHES

SCRC is resistant to scratches, however sharp objects can still cause damage. If this happens, you can sand the area or fill the scratch with a matching color crayon.

FOR BURN MARKS OR GOUGES

Use an electric sander with a coarse 80-grit sandpaper to sand the affected area. Re-sand the area using a medium 180-grit sandpaper. Then to blend the color into the surrounding area, wet-sand the area using a fine 2000-grit wet / dry sandpaper.
