Marveille Door Handles October 02nd, 2017 - 00:09:01
Newly installed brass door handles are always radiant but eventually the wear and tear will cause them to lose their radiance. This wear and tear could be due to stains grease or any other similar factor that can reduce the glow of metal. As brass is the combination of zinc and copper it creates a golden color that gives the brass door handles their attractive and shining look.
As door handles easily catch germs and bacteria because of the variety of individual hands that touch them in the course of a day it is important to consider the materials used. It is believed that certain materials like brass copper and silver discourage the growth of bacteria and germs through some kind of electro-chemical effect; while other materials like aluminum stainless steel glass and porcelain do not have the same action. However this belief has remained just that... a belief: and studies have not been extensive enough to confirm or disprove this possible effect except in the case of silver. Hospitals in particular are experimenting with handle materials as they continue their fight against infectious disease within their wards.
We have also seen door handles made from many different materials although most people think of some kind of metal. However handles have also been made from ceramic wood glass plastic etc. One of the oldest materials that are still among the more popular options is brass. For one thing brass looks gorgeous but it is also rust resistant. Todays brass door handle is somewhat different from those made in earlier times due to finishes. For instance for a more modern appearance many people choose brushed or satin brass.
Nice and easy and low maintenance the best way to keep your chrome handles looking great is to dust them and give them a quick wash over with the tried and tested soft cloth and warm soapy water combination. Make sure to dry thoroughly afterwards with a lint free cloth or towel. An occasional wipe over with a light oil will also help maintain the appearance of your handles. Dont use metal polishes or any kind of abrasive cleaner.
