Stainless Steel – Cleaning and Maintenance

Often at the forefront of an executive and elegant looking bathroom, Stainless Steel bathroom dividers and urinal screens can continually provide a clean and sleek design if maintained properly.


Stainless Steel partitions are very easily maintained, and require no special efforts to retain their pristine appearance. Regular cleaning is the most effective way to preserve the brilliance and shine.

  • In many cases, the surface of a stainless steel bathroom partition should simply be cleaned with a mild detergent, or ammonia-based solution. After application of the cleaning agent, the surface should be rinsed off with warm or hot clear water.


  • Build-ups of dirt can be removed with a metal cleaner that is specially intended for a stainless steel surface.

  • Situations involving mineral deposits needing to be scoured can be removed with a slightly abrasive powder like Ajax.

  • Tougher markings like fingerprints, grease, and oil can be removed with a solution containing a detergent, water, and a solvent like acetone or kerosene. If these markings appear on the surface of the partition, rub the cleaning solution in the direction of the metal’s grain.

  • Once the stainless steel has been treated with the appropriate cleaning solution and cleaned appropriately, be sure to rinse the surface with clear water. Wipe with a soft cloth thoroughly to reduce and remove all traces of the cleaner — again, rub and wipe in the direction of the metal’s grain.
