Our metal stair rods are supplied protected with a clear lacquer, which prevents them from tarnishing. When cleaning them, it is best to simply wipe them with a damp cloth, from time to time. Do not use metal cleaning products, as these will damage the lacquer and can cause tarnishing of the rods and damage and could mark your carpet.
When freshening up the staircase, paintwork and surrounding area to the stair rods, it is best to apply any cleaning product direct to a cloth and then wipe the surface clean as if the cleaning fluid, water, detergent etc is sprayed onto the stair rods this may cause surface speckling to the rods.
If you spill liquid by mistake on your stair rods, remove immediately with a damp cloth and then dry with a clean cloth.
The Tudor wooden stair rods are stained and lacquered and simply require a wipe with a damp cloth. The finial ends and the brackets are made of metal and are lacquered – see Lacquered metal stair rods above for appropriate maintenance tips.
