After taking the time to clean equipment, go the extra mile to polish and make it look nice for your customers. Polishing does more than shine and impress; if done the right way it adds a protective finish and can prevent future stains and damages. This process will remove everything from finger prints, smoke film, scuffs, dirt and grime, and leave behind a non-oily, silicone-based film to shine and protect!
What You Will Need:
- LUXSS Wipes
*For best results, clean surface with OTIS Multi-Surface Cleaner prior to polishing*
- Remove one wipe from container, then close cap so the wipes don't dry out.
- One wipe should be enough to cover multiple surfaces. For detailed cleaning or smaller surfaces, squeeze excess solution from wipe and then begin cleaning.
- Applying even pressure, use the LUXSS Wipe to polish hard surfaces and equipment.
- (Specially designed for painted metal, stainless steel, wood surfaces, plastic laminate, rubber and more)
- Repeat using as many wipes as necessary.
The Added Value of Polishing Equipment: Beyond the Shine
In the world of equipment maintenance and presentation, polishing stands out as an essential step that can make all the difference. Not only does it enhance the visual appeal, but it also provides functional benefits that extend the life of your equipment. Let's dive into the holistic advantages of polishing and why it's worth the extra effort.
1. The First Impression: When customers approach a piece of equipment that shines and looks well-maintained, it immediately conveys professionalism and attention to detail. This reflects positively on the brand, creating an atmosphere of trust and quality.
2. Protective Shielding: Proper polishing doesn’t just provide a superficial shine. It creates a barrier between the equipment’s surface and the environment. This shield wards off water, pollutants, and other potential contaminants, reducing the risk of rust and other forms of degradation.
3. Prevention of Future Stains and Damages: A polished surface is smoother, making it harder for dirt, grime, and other contaminants to adhere. This means less frequent cleaning is required, and when cleaning is done, it's much easier and more efficient.
4. Cost Savings: By preventing potential damage and reducing the frequency of deep cleans, polishing can lead to significant long-term savings. Less damage means fewer repairs and replacements, which directly affects the bottom line.
5. Enhanced Longevity: Equipment that is regularly polished and protected from environmental factors will invariably have a longer operational lifespan. This not only ensures that investments in equipment yield a higher return but also means fewer disruptions due to malfunctioning or damaged equipment.
6. A Safer Environment: Polishing can also make equipment safer. For instance, polished surfaces reduce the risk of someone cutting themselves on a jagged edge or getting caught on a rough surface.
7. Environmental Benefits: By using non-oily, silicone-based products for polishing, businesses can ensure they're not introducing harmful chemicals into the environment. These products also tend to last longer, reducing the frequency of applications and the associated environmental impact.
Steps to Effective Polishing:
Clean First: Always start with a clean surface. Remove all dirt, grime, and impurities to ensure the polish can be applied evenly.
Choose the Right Polish: Opt for a high-quality, non-oily, silicone-based polish. This ensures a smooth finish without a greasy residue.
Apply with Care: Use a soft cloth or applicator pad to apply the polish. Use circular motions for an even spread.
Buff to Shine: After applying, buff the equipment with a clean cloth to bring out the shine and ensure even coverage.
In conclusion, polishing is more than just an aesthetic endeavor. It's a strategic move that offers tangible benefits in equipment longevity, safety, and cost savings. The next time you clean your equipment, remember: a little polish can go a long way!
