How to Maintain the Glass Shower Enclosure in Your Vienna, VA Home

    (Provided by ABC Glass & Mirror, Inc. - Tuesday, September 24, 2013)

If you’ve purchased a new shower enclosure recently, you may be asking yourself what you can do to keep this part of your Vienna home in great shape. There are definitely some steps you can take to protect the aesthetic appeal of your brand-new glass unit. For one thing, spray on sealants can be bought and applied to the glass. These help cut-down on soap scum build-up and mineral deposits. Ask your glazier if one of these would be helpful for your particular glass. Next, purchase a squeegee and a soft, absorbent towel. These will be used for what is perhaps the most crucial aspect of your maintenance routine. Each time a shower enclosure is used in your Vienna home, it should be thoroughly dried. This is where the squeegee and the soft, absorbent towel come in handy. Use these to remove water from glass as well as metal pieces. On semi-frameless or framed installations, pay special attention to nooks and crannies where water could collect and escape notice. When you promptly dry the shower, you remove the tap water with its minerals and soap residue that can mar the unit.

Being faithful to this practice will save you from having bigger problems to deal with on cleaning day! When cleaning day does come around, don’t forget the glass shower enclosure. Vienna homemakers must always keep in mind that harsh or abrasive products do not have a place in glass shower care. These can harm the glass and metal. Purchase effective, approved cleaning products for the glass components and only use non-abrasive items when it comes to sponges or cloths. Shower hardware – except for brass – can be scrubbed with a soft, non-abrasive rag and a weak solution of water and mild liquid soap. No cleaning agent besides plain water can be applied to shower hardware with a brass finish.
