Finishes designated as 'Lifetime' carry a limited lifetime finish warranty guaranteeing them not to tarnish, flake, or pit for as long as the original purchaser occupies the residence.
Non-Lacquered Brass, Vintage Brass, Oil Rubbed Bronze, and Distressed Oil Rubbed Bronze are considered living finishes. They are designed to change in color with time and use, growing in character as they do. Typically, these finishes will lighten where they are frequently touched and darken where they are not touched.
Oil Rubbed Bronze and Distressed Oil Rubbed Bronze can be treated with a thin coat of 3-In-One-Oil every few months to help preserve the original finish if desired.
Non-Lacquered Brass can be polished back to like-new condition with metal polish. A high-quality wax metal polish can be used to help preserve the original finish if desired.
Clean only with a soft, non-abrasive cloth dampened with warm water. Mild diluted dish soap may be used if needed. Dry thoroughly. Do not use cleaning chemicals or disinfectants as they may damage the finish.
