Stainless steel caster wheels are tough, so they can handle heavy loads and bumps in a variety of environments. However, the outer housing on a stainless steel caster can develop some minor cosmetic flaws if it isn’t properly cared for. If you want to keep your stainless steel casters shiny and sparkly following daily routines, you’ll need to follow a few simple steps.
All stainless steel materials have grains that run in a specific direction. In order to polish a stainless steel caster like a pro, you must wipe the material with these grains. The best cloth for this job is a micro fiber cloth. If you need to get rid of stains while polishing a caster, a plastic scouring pad should be used instead.
When a caster loses it’s shiny appearance, you can restore the luster by cleaning the surfaces with vinegar and water. You should combine both liquids equally in a spray bottle because the spray nozzle will help you distribute the solution evenly on the stainless steel. If a steel surface still isn’t shiny after you’ve wiped the material with vinegar and water, cleanse the steel with isopropyl alcohol. The chemicals in the alcohol will provide a deeper shine by destroying contaminates.
Whenever the floors in a building are coated with a fresh cleaning agent, you shouldn’t roll a cart with stainless stain casters in these zones until the liquid has completely dried. The big problem is that industrial cleaners have numerous chemicals that can damage stainless steel.
If you’re going to spray a cleanser on your carts to kill bacteria, never aim the nozzle near the steel caster. A typical germ-fighting cleanser has bleach that can fade a stainless steel caster.
These strategies can help you keep your steel casters vibrant and shiny. In order to prevent scratches, always guide the casters on concrete and other abrasive surfaces carefully.
