Like any consumer product available today, mailboxes also need love and care. We take great pride in producing products that can withstand weather and elements with rigor, however, regular cleaning of your mailbox is a necessary part of mailbox care. We like to use the analogy of a car; if your car is dirty from the elements, your mailbox probably is too and will need a good cleaning. Please follow our Care and Maintenance Instructions for proper procedure. Happy cleaning!
