Keep your Hunter Patio products looking great and lasting longer with regular maintenance. Particularly with pre-painted steel.
Simply wash your Hunter Patio products at least every six months with fresh, clean water.
NO ADDITIONAL MAINTENANCE IS NEEDED IF REGULARLY WASHED BY RAIN.
Locations near the coast or within industrial estates require more frequent cleaning, especially when removing salt, dust and other pollutants. This is even more important if NOT WASHED BY FREQUENT RAIN.
To maximise longevity and maintain its superb looks, cleaning should be as frequent as washing your car. To avoid increased corrosion, pay particular attention to the ceiling side.
In most instances, clean, fresh water will do the job. However, a soft diluted detergent (or the
below solutions and volumes) applied with a sponge, soft nylon brush or a low-pressure spray washer can be used to clean more stubborn areas.
Failure to remove all residues could cause damage, so a thorough rinse with fresh, clean water should
complete the job.
Hunter Patio products are not designed to be cleaned with coarse or harsh cleaning solutions, like, petrol, urpentine or kerosene. To maximise lifespan, Ausdeck recommends NOT placing steel near in locations with excessive pollution, such as clothes dryers, water softeners, swimming pool or spa enclosures, air-conditioners, industrial equipment, fire pits, diesel generators and other such pollutants.
