How to Protect Reclaimed Metal?

Reclaimed metal items, such as architectural accents or vintage hardware, require specific care to preserve their unique charm and prevent corrosion. Appropriate attention will ensure its longevity and keep your reclaimed items looking better for longer. Here are some of our top tips on how to protect reclaimed metal.

Maintaining Reclaimed Metal

Cleaning and Polishing

In order to keep the allure of reclaimed metal, it is important to clean it routinely. Utilise a gentle metal cleaner or mix a small amount of mild soap and water to wash away any debris. Refrain from using abrasive materials that can inadvertently damage the surface when scrubbing.

Rust Prevention

It’s important that reclaimed metal stay dry and rust-free. An effective way of preventing the formation of rust is by applying a protective coating or wax. Should a few rust spots appear, they can be taken care of using either a specifically formulated remover or simply a solution of vinegar and baking soda.

Dealing with Scratches

In the event that your metal item has noticeable marks, you could attempt to diminish them with a non-abrasive metal polish and a soft cloth. However, for scratches that run deeper, it may be beneficial to consult an expert for possible repair or refinishing solutions.
