Florence 1570-8VDB Use and Care Manual

Care and Cleaning
The surface of all Florence Manufacturing clear aluminum or powder coated
products may be cleaned of dirt or grime with a soft cloth dampened with any
mild detergent or properly diluted biodegradable, water-based cleaner, such
as “Simple Green™”1. Wipe from top to bottom to avoid run-down. Avoid use
of abrasives, which might damage the product surface. Rinse with plain water
and dry2. Avoid cleaning during extreme temperature conditions.
To varying extents, depending upon the color, it may be possible to remove
some spray-paint or marker-applied graffiti from powder coated surfaces by
using a stronger cleaner such as “Krud Kutter™”3 or a mild petroleum-based
solvent, such as mineral spirits. Test-clean a small area first, a few seconds at
a time. Do not allow chemical to remain on surface for an indefinite period,
as this may damage the surface of the product. Remove any residue left with
a mild cleaner, followed by water rinse as noted above.
Touch-up paint may be available from an Authorized Florence Dealer for
those products which utilize powder coating.
Simple Green™, product #13102, is manufactured by Sunshine Makers Inc of California, 800-228-0709, infoweb@simplegreen.com.
In foggy coastal regions, frequent cycles of condensation and drying can create a heavy build-up of atmospheric salts and dirt that may
adhere tenaciously. This requires that cleaning be done more frequently than in other metropolitan areas where rainfall is more frequent
(AAMA Standard 609 & 610-02).
Krud Kutter™, product #GR32, is manufactured by Supreme Chemicals of Georgia, 800-466-7126, sales@krudkutter.com.
