Maintaining Glass Shower Doors

December 30, 2019


Getting custom glass shower doors is the first step to having an aesthetically pleasing and comfortable shower space. However, it is not enough to just have a well-designed shower enclosure – you need to make sure that you maintain your space properly so that the fixtures last longer and your bathroom stays clean and luxurious.  


There are steps that you can take during the manufacture of your custom glass shower doors to make them more durable and manageable.


On top of that, there are also steps that you can take after the fact, by adopting best practices in cleaning and maintaining your custom glass shower doors.  


1. Choose the Right Coating 

A responsible glass shower fabricator will always ask what kind of coatings you want for your shower doors. You can even layer coatings to get extra protection. The purpose of coatings is to seal the microscopic holes that are evident in any glass product. Not only does this strengthen the overall integrity of the glass, the coating will also help prevent minerals present in water such as calcium from degrading the glass.  


2. Watch Out for Hard Water Stains 

Water that has significant mineral content is known as hard water. Unlike regular water, hard water can leave stains on glass and ceramics. As such, you will need to be diligent with your cleaning as hard water stains will become harder to get rid of over time. Make sure you avoid streaking when you clean – use gentler cleaning products with moderate pH as well as cleaning instruments that lack sharp edges or rough surfaces.  


3. Promote Circulation in Your Bathroom  

Whether by turning on the exhaust fan or leaving the bathroom door open after a shower, you need to help promote air circulation in your bathroom to help excess water evaporate. This will prevent the buildup of mildew or moluld. Not only are they unsightly, they are also hazardous to your health.  


The most important advice to keep in mind is that you will need to tend to your custom glass shower doors regularly. While beautiful and practical, glass as a material does need more maintenance than other materials. Make sure you clean your shower doors at least twice a week to help them maintain their beauty.
