Cleaning and Maintaining Stainless Steel Bathroom Stalls


Stainless steel bathroom stalls and urinal screens, when properly cared for, provide a sleek and modern design element for many years. Fortunately, stainless steel cleaning and maintenance is nearly effortless. We have specific recommendations for keeping your stalls in the best possible condition.

Maintaining Stainless Steel Bathroom Stalls

Stainless Steel partitions are extremely easy to maintain. No special effort is required to retain their original, pristine appearance. Regular cleaning is the most effective way to preserve the brilliance and shine.

You should also regularly check for any damage. Stainless steel is difficult to dent, but anything can happen. The faster you can address any issues, the better your results will be. Make sure that all parts are in proper working order at all times. This step will also eliminate any accidents or injuries for people using your restroom. The last thing you need is a broken stall door. Again, stainless steel is very durable, but anything can happen, so it is crucial to check every screw, latch, and bolt.

Stainless Steel Bathroom Stall Cleaning

In most cases, you should clean the surface of a stainless steel bathroom partition with a mild detergent or ammonia-based solution. After the application of the cleaning agent, the surface should be rinsed off with warm or hot water. Always wipe the surface dry after cleaning. This step will eliminate stains and smudges on the glossy surface. Also, make sure to rub in the directions of the metal’s grain for best results. You can identify the metal’s grain by taking a close look at the surface of the material.

Here are some further instructions and stainless steel cleaning methods to help you maintain your bathroom stalls properly.

  • Remove build-ups of dirt with a metal cleaner formulated for stainless steel surfaces. Make sure to be gentle and always rinse the cleaner off when you’ve finished.
  • When you have mineral deposits to remove, you can use a slightly abrasive powder like Ajax. Using a cloth, gently rub the surface clean. Be sure to rub in the direction of the grain. Rinse and dry thoroughly when it is complete.
  • Remove tougher markings like fingerprints, grease, and oil 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. Working with the grain helps you clean faster and more efficiently.
  • Always rinse the surface with clear water after cleaning. Also, always wipe with a soft cloth thoroughly to remove all traces of the cleaner.
