Additional information for cleaning the escalator.

Escalator cleaner only cleans vertical surface, not horizontally. To clean horizontal grooves, you can use any mild cleaner or Escalator cleaner aerosol (SD-20 Aerosol cleaner works well) and spray the groove and use small tooth brush type of brush and clean the groove and wipe off with clean rag.
Once the groove is cleaned, you do not need to clean them for many months.

To clean the vertical surface with cleaning solution.
Do not wet the surface with lots of liquid cleaner. It could sip into the escalator tracts and damage the escalator.

Do not use very strong cleaner, it could damage the paint on the surface of escalators. Use mild foam cleaner works the best.

Spray the vertical surface before starting the machine works well and depending how dirty it is, you may need to reapply the solution several times.
