Copper will not rust away or become unattractive over time because it simply protects itself with an environmental barrier, called patina. This patina is the primary difference between copper and other metals. In fact, copper products that are properly cared for become more beautiful and more cherished throughout the years.
Unless the copper product is exposed in an outdoor environment for decades, it will not turn green. The finish will maintain a beautiful quality with proper care for a lifetime. Copper has an endless ability to regenerate the patina finish. Customers need not be concerned with the pale green patina seen on outdoor fixtures and landmarks. Copper does not rust.
Copper is not only beautiful, it is easier to care for, more durable, and more health-conscious than other materials. A mild soap and soft cloth are the only cleaning necessary, and occasional wax will ensure the luster of the finish. Because copper is naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial, no disinfecting is necessary
