on installing frameless shower doors. Frameless glass doors give your
bathroom a modern and stylish look and make it feel more spacious.
Who does not like a spacious bathroom? However, installation is not
the end of it. To keep your frameless shower doors looking as good as
new, you need to follow a few maintenance tips. If hard water and
soapy water is left to accumulate it can cause permanent damage to
the glass. Here are some tips to help you along.
Use a squeegee every day
A squeegee is a windshield wiper look-alike tool with a handle and a long flat rubber blade. Using it on the frameless shower doors is the most effective way of maintaining shower doors. It is a simple task that only takes minutes. You just need to get everyone in the house on board and get them excited to take up the new daily cleaning routine.
After taking your shower make sure that your bathroom is well ventilated. You can do this by turning on the fan or opening the bathroom door. This allows all the moisture to leave the room quickening the drying process. By ensuring the room is completely dry you do not give mildew or mold a chance to form on your frameless glass doors.
Fabric softener sheet
This is one of the unorthodox ways to keep your glass doors clean but it actually works. The reason it works is because fabric softeners were designed to break up water spots and hence they work efficiently on glass doors. You just need to take a sheet and use it to wipe down the door. Cleaning frameless glass doors could not get any easier.
It is normal that you do not get that chance to clean your bathroom on a daily basis. You might be on a tight schedule at work and you simply short on time. If this happens you just have to spare one day to do a deep cleaning on your bathroom. If left for too long without cleaning, shower enclosures can build up grime and this will require more than a fabric softener sheet to clean up. You need to scrub the scum using common home cleaning products. Since the products contain chemicals, it is a good idea to use gloves to protect your skin.
Frameless shower doors have become very popular because of their aesthetic appeal. If you have them installed make sure you keep them clean with the above tips.
