Maintaining your artwork is really easy. We recommend using a lint free cloth with warm water only if there is a bad mark or stain.
We do recommend our customers to handle using gloves or a hand towel. Once the art is up it mostly stays clean itself. Dust with a dry lint free cloth if necessary. If you forget to use gloves try to remove any finger prints or greese marks asap to avoid staining the aluminium. It's the oils in your fingers that react with the oxide in the aluminium. This can be easily avoided use the methods we suggest.
