The most effective method for maintaining Frankford’s heavy gauge vinyl is to clean the vinyl once a month with water using a hose to prevent the accumulation of dust, pollution particles, foreign organic materials, and general dirt stains. For more embedded stains, brush the loose dirt away with a soft brush, rinse the vinyl material with a low-pressure hose and use a vinyl cleaner, sponge and lukewarm water to scrub away stubborn stains.
Do not use dish detergent. This will dry out the vinyl and expedite the aging process of the vinyl material.
Do not let dirt build up on the bases. Cleaning with mild soap and water, and seasonal touch-up of any scratches, chips or occasional rust seepage from crevices or hidden, unfinished surfaces inherent in some designs is all that is required. Never leave bases standing in water. To keep your bases looking their best, you may wish to store them when not in use for an extended period of time.
DISCLAIMER: Finishes will vary slightly depending on the final process and raw materials on which it is applied.
RECacril is highly resistant to the growth of fungus, mold, and mildew, however these can grow on embedded dirt. To clean these stains, follow these more intensive cleaning procedures.
