How to Remove Marks from Metal


The goal in detailing the metal doors or buildings before coating them with Everbrite Protective Coating is to remove not only the oxidation but also any disfiguring marks and stains so your property will look it's best.

Felt Mark on a Storage Door

Once the rollup doors or metal buildings are washed with the EZ Prep solution, there may still be some marks that were not removed. Many times, these marks are made by the felt that the doors roll up on. There is an easy way to remove these marks.

  1. Make a paste by mixing a "No Scratch" Cleanser like BonAmi with a small amount of water. These types of is not gritty and will not scratch your paint.
  2. Use a sponge or cloth to clean the marks off. Dip the wet sponge or cloth into the paste and rub on the mark. Start gently, increasing the pressure as necessary to remove the marks. (See image below)
  3. Rinse thoroughly and follow by washing the entire door with a EZ-Prep solution to remove contaminants before applying Everbrite Coating. This will remove soap residue and insure that the metal is clean. When rinsing the metal, make sure the water sheets off and there are no bubbles or areas where the water beads up. If there are, rewash the door with the EZ-Prep solution. Rinse thoroughly.
