Does my sign require maintenance?
Due to the high quality of materials used, combined with our unique production techniques, your sign is maintenance free. To clean your sign we would suggest you simply use warm soapy water together with the occasional use of a good metal polish to remove any salt deposits. Avoid using solvents such as acetone & thinners etc as this can cause harm to acrylics. We also recommend you avoid using a jet wash on your sign.
