As with any metal-based product, regular maintenance is the key to extending the life of your Force USA Power Rack or All-In-One Trainer. Following are some recommended tips to keep your equipment clean and rust-free for years to come.
Cleaning and disinfecting your strength equipment without proper care can accelerate the formation of surface rust on all metal surfaces. To help avoid this from happening, follow these simple instructions once a month.
First, wipe down the metal surfaces with a damp cloth using warm water and a touch of dish soap on all surface areas you wish to clean. Second, thoroughly wipe things down using a clean, dry towel—ensuring all metal surfaces are completely dry. Third, use a Mr. Clean “Magic Eraser” or equivalent to remove any rubber smudges or grime.
Avoid over-cleaning metal surfaces and using harsh chemicals, such as antibacterial wipes, as they can both accelerate the formation of rust.
In addition to cleaning, you’ll also want to lubricate all metal surfaces with a thin, light oil treatment because metal products—even those with powder-coated surfaces—can quickly form surface rust.
Surface rust can occur from condensation, humidity, temperature, and sweat on tiny scratches, dings, or cracks in the powder coating surface.
Follow this procedure at the time of purchase and then every three months after that to help protect the metal surfaces on your strength equipment.
First, wipe down all metal surfaces with a clean, dry towel. Second, put a light coat of 3-in-ONE oil on a clean cloth and wipe down all metal surfaces. Third, wipe down all excess oil with a dry towel. Higher humidity areas and machines frequently cleaned may require more frequent applications.
Additionally, we recommend wiping down the machine with a clean, dry towel after each use.
