Help! Green on chrome

I have this green stuff that is on the chrome on a urinal at a commercial account I clean. I can clean it off but it keeps coming back. Looking for answers as to what it is and what I can do to get rid of it.

It will just keep coming back.
Some cleaners with acids and bleach in them cause metals to pit and oxidize.
So plumbing shut off valves close to the floor, urinals and the handles of toilets and even sinks sometimes will pit.Acids

That's why you need to be careful with any cleaner that has acids in them. They will discolor metals, cause pitting and permanent damage
to the surface.
Always be aware of this around stainless steel appliances and sinks. With a sink, if you dump a bucket full of acidic cleaner in it and don't clean it out with soap (alkaline) you could damage the sink.
