Railing Cleaning

We recommend checking and cleaning your railing 1 – 2 times per year. Simply spray the dirt off with your standard garden hose. If you live in coastal areas (beach front), or areas where salts and pollutants are more prevalent (industrial areas), then the railings should be cleaned more frequently. (Every 3 months)

Vinyl Railing

Wash your railing with a solution of warm water and mild non-abrasive detergent and rinse to remove all residues. The railing should be cleaned using a soft cloth or sponge. For more difficult stains, Simple Green, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, mineral spirits, trichloroethylene, CLR or vinegar work well. To remove scuffs and scratches from vinyl railing, we recommend using Collinite 920 Fiberglass Boat Cleaner.  Apply a small amount on a soft cloth and gently rub.

Aluminum and Steel Railing

Wash your railing with a solution of warm water and mild non-abrasive detergent using a soft cloth or sponge and rinse to remove all residues. Windex with vinegar also works well. If you happen to scratch the powdercoated surface of your aluminum railing, you can touch up with using either our aerosol can or bottle brush options.
