Thorough Anodized Aluminum Cleaning & Maintenance

The natural beauty of architectural anodized aluminum is severely affected by weathering and exposure to wind-driven materials, such as sand, salt, dirt, and other atmospheric pollutants. You end up with roughened, stained, discolored, and corroded surfaces.

Anodized Aluminum Pitting Explained

Pollutants attach themselves to the surface and aluminum oxide forms from exposure to the elements. They combine to form an unsightly crust. If left on the surface, this crust causes pitting (craters or dots) over time.
