Cleaning and Caring for Your Frameless Shower
Congratulations on your investment in a frameless shower! You’re now the proud owner of a spa-like oasis. Frameless showers are attractive and create an open, clean look to your bathroom. Now it’s time to take care of it and ensure it looks as good as the day you installed it.
Here is our best advice for maintaining and caring for your new frameless shower:
1. Squeegee After Showers
Using your squeegee after each shower isn’t necessary if you choose to protect your door with a sealant, but it can help minimize streaking and mineral buildup if you go without. A simple once over after every shower will keep your unit looking its best. Even if you opted for sealant protection, the occasional squeegee will help protect against possible soap buildup on your glass walls. We provide a squeegee to all of our Maryland Frameless Showers customers upon installation.
2. Try DIY
If household cleaning products aren’t your thing, take a DIY approach. Use regular household items like white vinegar, baking soda, and water to create a solution that will banish any mineral buildup. To make a solution that will extend the time between cleanings, make a simple solution of lemon oil. The oil creates a sealant that will keep scum from building up, and the lemon gives your bathroom that “just cleaned” feeling. Reapply weekly to maintain your glass’s natural sheen.
3. Choose the Right Cleaner
Caring for your glass shower doors is a little different from traditional glass cleaning. Your new frameless shower is prone to water spots, and the right cleaner will help keep it looking its best. Our products come with a sealant option, which repels water and oil based substances, keeping your glass surface looking squeaky clean. No need to squeegee after every shower – this sealant does much of the hard work for you.
When it comes time to clean your shower, don’t use abrasive ammonia-based cleaners. A soft cloth will do. Choose a gentle cleaner that contains green ingredients.
Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
Remember, maintaining your new frameless shower system should be easy. They require minimal upkeep, so stick to natural cleansers or make your own with household ingredients. Consider the occasional squeegee to avoid mineral buildup or streaking from soap scum. That’s all you have to do – then sit back and enjoy your new frameless shower system! With the right approach, you will be able to enjoy your shower for years to come.
