CARE AND CLEANING

Brass

We carefully clean and finish each part and coat them in a museum grade metal wax that allows brass to age naturally. To avoid fingerprints and oils, use a soft cloth or wear gloves when installing or handling the fixture. To clean, avoid use of anything abrasive (like a paper towel) or any harsh chemicals.

Powder coat color finish

Powder coating is one of the strongest finishes available and is more susceptible to finger prints and showing dust. This finish should be cleaned with a soft cloth, mild soap and water. 

GLASS

For clear glass, wipe gently with a mild glass cleaner. For frosted or etched glass, dust gently with a duster or soft rag.
