If your engraved signage is looking a little worse for wear, you’ve come to the right place.

In this article, we’ll discuss how to clean and maintain engraved or embossed signage, including the things you should never do if you want to maintain your sign’s integrity.

We’ll also talk about what to do when something needs repairing and when you should contact the experienced team at Wolf Signs for assistance.

Tips for Cleaning & Maintaining Engraved Signage

One of the major benefits of engraved or embossed signage for business is that it is incredibly easy to clean and maintain. But you do need to clean it if you want it to last.

In this section, we’ll discuss some of the best ways to go about cleaning and maintaining this particular type of signage.

Follow Supplier Instructions

Usually when you purchase your signage, the manufacturer or supplier will advise you on how best to maintain it. If you are provided with this information, you want to follow it so your signage does not become damaged.

Don’t Use Alcohol 

You might think that using rubbing alcohol or some kind of strong cleaner is a good way to give your engraved signage a nice polish. But if you haven’t been told to do so by your supplier or manufacturer, avoid using it.

Using alcohol instead of the approved cleaning methods could in fact, damage your signage by ruining the protective coating and even the paint.

Avoid Steel Wool & Abrasives 

Even though it is quite durable, the stainless steel often used for engraved or embossed signs can scratch. For this reason, you should try to avoid using steel wool, scourers or other abrasive cloths and materials on your signage.

Use Soap & Water

It may seem too simple, but using your basic soap and water with a soft microfibre cloth is one of the easiest ways to clean your engraved or embossed signage and get it looking like new.

Go With the Grain 

Just as they say with cutting meat or wood, when cleaning stainless steel engraved signage, you should go with the grain. Going against it will potentially cause it to scratch, and is definitely not the look you want to achieve.

Keep an Eye Out for Repairs 

Nothing is infallible to you may occasionally find your engraved or embossed signage becomes chipped or needs a repair. This may particularly be the case if the signage is external to your building. That’s why it’s important to be vigilant about repairs, and contact your signage manufacturer to arrange for it to be fixed.
