2. Wipe the wrought iron in a circular motion, working in small sections at a time, removing all excess dirt or dust.

3. Once you have finished empty your bucket or spray bottle when finished. Rinse and re-fill with clean water.

    My wrought iron staircase was fitted and installed the other week and I cannot begin to explain to you the feeling I had when I walked through my front door. I couldn’t stop staring at my wrought iron balustrading! I cannot wait to complete the rest of my home. This has definitely enhanced my home. It’s elegant, impressive and well made. I’m glad that I have engaged MMT to custom make my wrought iron balustrading. Thank you!
