Does your Vienna home have shower glass that has been specifically manufactured to repel soap scum and mineral buildup? Or has the glass been coated to achieve a similar effect? If the answer is “yes”, then you’ve already taken the first step toward the effective upkeep of your unit. (And if you have not yet made your final selection in shower doors, be sure to consider these options.) If, on the other hand, the answer is “no”, consider purchasing and applying a spray-on glass treatment before the shower is used. The most important and fundamental step in keeping a shower with glass doors looking its best can be taken by any Vienna homeowner. All that is required is a faithful observance of a daily maintenance routine.

After each shower, the user should remove the moisture and water droplets from both the glass and the metal pieces of the shower. We recommend keeping a squeegee and soft towel on hand for this purpose. If the drops of tap water are promptly removed, this minimizes the formation of water spots, mineral deposits, or discoloration from soap scum. And of course keeping the unit dry is also helpful in avoiding mold or mildew issues. With this daily shower care, cleaning the glass doors should not be a monumental task that Vienna homeowners or their home care staff dread. Because spots can be missed when the unit is dried and some tap-water leaves spots very quickly, we suggest a weekly touch-up. Clean the shower using ONLY approved, non-abrasive cleaners and soft cloths or sponges.

Neither abrasive scrubbing pads nor harsh cleaners are suitable for glass showers. Note that if the metal components have a brass finish, all cleaning agents need to be kept off them. Only a soft, dry cloth should be used when cleaning this hardware. For more information on shower glass, options for shower doors, and enclosure design possibilities, Vienna residents should dial (703)257-7150.
