How To Clean Colorbond and Zincalume Steel
Regular washing with water, will enhance the life and maintain the attractiveness of Colorbond and Zincalume steel.
Washing is not required if the steel is regularly subject to rain, as is the case with roof sheets and gutters.
Grab The Hose
For areas that don’t get washed by the rain, then some occasional attention is recommended.
For example, Colorbond and Zincalume that’s used for wall cladding, areas under eaves, some fences, garage doors, down pipes etc may not get rained on.
When not exposed to rain, hose down the steel at least every six months, more frequently in coastal areas (due to sea salt) or where industrial fallout occurs.
For Hard To Remove Dirt
If this fails to remove all dirt, a mild soap or detergent can be applied with a sponge or soft cloth, then rinsed.
Do not use abrasive or solvent type cleaners on Colobond or Zincalume steel.
- Colorbond and Zincalume steel can simply be washed by the rain.
