Repair Considerations

  • Plated & Powder-Coated Finishes: Easy-to-clean with a soft, damp cloth and immediately dry with a soft, dry cloth. Never use abrasive soaps or abrasive cleaning pads, and avoid cleanign with extremely hot water.
  • Plated Finishes: Brass or nickel have a protective clear lacquer coating applied during the plating process. If this clear coating is worn off by excessive abrasive cleaning (or by years of use) the base plating will begin to oxidize. If oxidation does begin, you may need to replace the entire cage or — at a minimum — the part that is oxidizing. 
  • Painted Finishes: These should be baked on during the painting process. To avoid future rusting, immediately use touch-up paint on any chipped or scratched areas.
