How to maintain Jim Lawrence painted products

Painting Old Gold
how to clean painted surfaces
Our painted finishes are created by painting the items in a powder coating process that creates a smooth, hard-wearing surface which is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

These finishes should not require any particular on-going upkeep; however, we would advise that you simply wipe it over with a clean, lint free, soft cloth from time to time to remove any residual build-up of dust and dirt on the product.

 Unfortunately, we are unable to offer to refinish our lacquered, painted or nickel-plated finishes. The cost to remove the original finish is prohibitive as we have to send the item away to be stripped in an environmentally friendly manner.
