Many offices and workplaces have chrome as part of their decor or fixtures. From door handles and trim on furniture, to appliances, lights, and restroom fixtures, it’s likely that chrome is found in many places throughout your office or workplace. Do you need help keeping your chrome looking its best? Here are a few tips to help you clean chrome and keep it shiny at work.

How to Clean Chrome

Cleaning chrome varies depending on its use and specific surface in question. Sometimes cleaning chrome can require a two-step process to make sure it is clean as well as shiny. If the chrome is on furniture and disinfecting is necessary, consider a two-stage application of a germ-killing product, followed by the polishing product of your choice. Waiting for the disinfecting solution to work properly and to dry is a must to kill germs and avoid streaks. Follow up with your chrome polish or polishing cloth to ensure a nice shine to the furniture chrome.

When addressing handles on furniture or doors, a proper sanitizing or disinfecting solution applied properly might be enough to clean the surface. Review these areas after the disinfection solution has dried to observe whether a polish is necessary. Providing a clean surface is nice when it comes to handles that are touched often. However, when they are coated with a polish solution, people might have problems opening doors, drawers, and cabinets, and could end up with polish residue on their hands. Instead, a polishing cloth can be helpful in these cases to bring out the shine and remove any streaks.

Consider a similar approach to your restroom and break room fixtures. Removing and killing germs is the most important when it comes to high-touch areas in your office or workplace. However, leaving a nice shine on your chrome areas can go a long way to provide a positive impression that your customers will appreciate.

Chrome Cleaning and Polishing Products

Some of your chrome areas will not be constantly touched, like furniture trim areas or light fixtures to name just a couple. These places in your workplace might just need a light dusting on a regular basis. If the chrome needs a deeper dusting, implementing a combination dusting and polishing solution can be a good product choice.

When you need a deeper clean and disinfecting product for those high touch areas, choose a disinfecting solution that is sprayed or wiped on and remains wet on the surface for a period of time, which will kill germs and help prevent the spread of illness. After these types of chrome areas are dry, a chrome or gentle window cleaning solution will often give a nice shine to the surface. If the chrome is of a delicate nature, a specific chrome polish can be used to provide the right sparkle.

Chrome is a nice addition to any workspace. It’s durable and easy to keep clean. Keeping a polishing cloth on hand to provide touch-ups throughout the day will go a long way to contribute to a well put together work and sparkling work environment.
