Select Home Cleaning- Removing Rust from Patio Furniture & Outdoor Items

The homeowner’s fight against rust removal is an ongoing one! It is a challenge to get rid of the non-stop threats of rust from patio furniture and outdoor tools. Select Home Cleaning – a premium house cleaning company in New Zealand states that rust removal is essential to protect patio furniture and outdoor tools from decay. If neglected, immense damage can be done leading to complete replacement.

Rust removal can also be done at home. However, for heavy and intense cases, it is prudent to call in professional house cleaners like Select Home Cleaning specialists who are available now in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Tauranga and Hamilton.

Rust removal at home is indeed a skill and in order to do it yourself, you should opt for a technique that suits you the best. There are rust converters available in the market. They are available in the form of liquids or sprays. With the aid of a wire brush, you can effectively remove paint flakes and rust dust from the item you wish to clean. The rust converter needs to be applied to the item with the aid of a paintbrush if you have it in the liquid form. If you have the spray variant, you can apply it directly on the item. The ingredients in the rust converter transform the rust into a black substance. This substance can be painted over to get a finish that looks like new. 

There is another method of rust removal you can opt for. Here, sandpaper helps you to remove paint flakes and rust dust. The rust should be light for you to remove it completely with sandpaper. You need to scrape the coarse sandpaper ensuring the pocket marks of rust are removed and you get a finger smooth finish. If you have very heavy build up of rust, you should try using an electrical drill fitted with a wire brush. This will remove the rust dust and give you a smooth finish.

There are chemical rust removers available in the market. However, when you are using them, ensure to be very careful to avoid injury. Use goggles and rubber gloves. Remember that chemical rust removing solutions in the market contain very powerful chemicals like phosphoric or hydrochloric acid. The rust removal process should only be done in open spaces. If you have small objects, you just have to immerse in a solution of rust remover and let it soak for 1-3 hours if the rust is light and overnight if the rust is heavy. In some cases, you may have to repeat this process a number of times to get the desired results.

This way, rust removal can be done at home, however if it is very heavy, calling in professional house cleaners like Select Home Cleaning will do the trick.
