You decided to purchase a metal sign, you designed it and you waited for it to be shipped to your door. Why go through that process again when you can take one simple step to ensure that your metal sign lasts as long as it possibly can?

The single best way to make your metal sign last is by cleaning it regularly.

What is “regularly?” It’s not like you have to take a giant power washer to your sign daily. But, like cars, signs get dirty just sitting around. Think about it. Your metal sign is bombarded daily with things like dirt, harsh winds, rain, mud, even bird poop! A regular monthly cleaning will do wonders to return your sign to the bright, polished beacon it should be.

Regularly cleaning your sign is the key to making it last years longer. If you neglect to clean your outdoor sign from time to time, dirt and grime will build up…

…And buildup makes it almost impossible to clean your sign without using something so strong that it will ruin your sign.

Imagine your car sitting by the road for a year – or even six months. What would it look like? It would be splattered with mud, covered in bird poop and caked with dirt and grime. Now, if your metal sign looked like that do you think people would pay attention to it? Maybe, but not in a good way.

So what should you use to clean your metal sign?

Mildly soapy water is all you need to keep your sign looking shiny and new. Don’t use anything stronger, as it could easily erode the sign materials. Simply wipe your sign gently, making sure to get in the small crevices and corners. And be sure to use a very soft cotton towel, steering clear of paper towels, which can be too rough.

That’s all it takes!

So protect your investment by cleaning it regularly. Your sign is there to make you money, but you’ll just end up spending more to replace it if you neglect it for too long. Just fifteen minutes once a month will ensure that your sign is bright, appealing and attractive.

…So remember: A clean sign lasts longer!
