Sounds strange I know, but yes, a regular pure water window cleaning routine does wonders for stainless steel footings, supports and railings, particularly around glass balustrades. Many coastal homes in Perth and elsewhere experience significant corrosion of metal items that are commonly thought of as corrosion resistant. Even marine grade stainless steel will develop surface rust in the short-term if not maintained regularly.
The beauty of pure water window cleaning technology over traditional window cleaning techniques when cleaning glass balustrade is the ability to quickly and easily agitate stainless steel supports and footings while cleaning, almost incidentally! As there is a constant flow of purified water these stainless steel items receive a significant rinse, washing off any build up of salt, grime and other debris. The alternative is to squeegee the glass and polish each metal item with a rag, obviously a far less efficient technique; one that is less likely to be repeated on a regular basis.
