With their sleek and elegant look, glass shower doors make any bathroom feel open and airy — but only when clean and well-maintained. Water and soap stains or a broken door handle can quickly turn your modern-looking shower into an eyesore. Here are some tips for shower door maintenance and cleaning plus how to transform your bathroom with a new shower door installation.
Shower door maintenance
Maintaining your glass shower doors is essential to achieving the right aesthetic. Here are some maintenance tips to help you keep your glass doors in pristine condition:
Regular inspections. Inspect doors for any signs of damage or wear, like chipped edges, loose seals, or hardware issues. Address problems early to prevent extensive repairs down the line.
Proper use. When opening or closing doors, be gentle to prevent stress on the glass and its hinges.
Seal maintenance. Check the seals and gaskets around your shower doors for any signs of wear or mould. Clean them regularly and replace them if they’re deteriorating.
Prevent stains. Hard water stains can accumulate on the glass over time. Use a good protectant or sealant to repel water and prevent mineral buildup.
Cleaning your shower doors
A sparkling clean glass shower enclosure can completely transform your bathroom, so it’s important to clean your glass doors regularly to prevent soap scum and grime from building up. Here are a few tips to help you get that pristine look:
Use a squeegee. A squeegee is your best friend when maintaining clean doors. Run it over the glass after every shower to remove water droplets and prevent soap and water spots from drying and becoming stubborn stains.
Choose the right cleanser. Choose a good glass cleaner designed for shower doors. These products are formulated to tackle tough stains and leave your glass enclosure looking crystal clear.
Clean the tracks. Prevent mould and mildew growth in the grout and corners by periodically taking some time to thoroughly clean the tracks and hardware of your shower door.
