In the radiant embrace of the Queensland sun, preserving the allure and durability of COLORBOND® steel and ZINCALUME® steel becomes an art form. The following information sheds light on essential maintenance practices tailored for the sun-drenched landscapes of Queensland, ensuring your assets remain resilient and captivating.
Safeguarding Your Investment
Regular maintenance is key to extending the life and preserving the aesthetic appeal of COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® steel. Queensland’s intense sunlight requires a strategic approach to keep your structures looking their best.
Rainfall and Routine Maintenance
For roofing cladding exposed to regular rainfall, the natural cleansing effect often eliminates the need for extensive maintenance. However, specific areas such as wall cladding beneath eaves, garage doors, and eave gutter undersides may benefit from more frequent attention.
Combatting Queensland Elements
In regions where the Queensland sun meets the sea breeze, or where industrial elements pose a challenge, a proactive cleaning schedule is recommended. Hose down surfaces not regularly washed by rainwater at least every six months. In coastal areas with prevalent marine salt spray or locales with industrial fallout, more frequent cleaning is advisable.
Cleansing Rituals for Resilience
When routine maintenance falls short, follow these steps for a thorough cleanse.
1. Mild Cleaning Solution
Create a solution using pure soap or a gentle kitchen detergent in warm water.
2. Gentle Application
Apply the solution with a sponge, soft cloth, or a soft-bristle nylon brush, ensuring a delicate touch to prevent surface damage.
3. Rinse and Repeat
Thoroughly rinse your COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® steel with clean water to remove any detergent residue.
4. Avoid Harsh Chemicals
Never resort to abrasive or solvent-based cleaners like turps, petrol, kerosene, or paint thinners on COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® steel.
Embrace the Queensland sun with confidence, by following these tailored maintenance practices, your COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® steel structures will endure the brilliance of the Queensland sun while standing resilient against the test of time.
