Steel Furniture Care
Learn how to care for Barclay Metal Furniture
Natural Characteristics of Steel
Every piece of steel experiences different heating and cooling temperatures during production and these differences manifest themselves in the lattice patterns and colors present in each piece of steel. We find this variety beautiful and if you are here, you likely do too!
Every raw steel plate we use is high quality steel and construction ready. Each plate will also have its own unique water marks, coloring and stains, weld marks, and patches of cosmetic rust. Every steel desktop will vary from our images shown in our product images.
Cleaning and General Care
Each steel piece is coated in a clear finish which protects the steel from rusting. To protect the clear coating on our steel pieces, we recommend lifting, rather than sliding, lamps and objects. Please contact us if you have questions about refinishing your piece. Although not required, maintaining and touching up your piece if scratches occur, can help prevent rust from forming.
Keep solvents such as nail polish remover and cleaning alcohol away from steel pieces because they can harm the finish. Products containing ammonia should never be used on your piece as they will harm your finish. We recommend using coasters even though the finish is water and heat resistant.
