Clean Glass Shower Doors Frequently

Keep Glass Shower Doors Sparkling with These Pro Tips


Naturally, you want your glass shower doors to sparkle. But you may have heard that keeping them free of water spots, streaks and soap scum can be a challenge. So much so, in fact, that it discourages many homeowners from installing glass tub enclosures or shower doors.

Fortunately, this task is much simpler than you may think. Keeping today’s custom glass shower doors sparkling and spotless doesn’t have to be a dreaded chore at all.
Prevention is key to keeping your tub or shower enclosure spotless. Your shower will be easier to keep clean if you take a minute to wipe down the doors after your shower.
A small handheld squeegee – designed expressly for this purpose – is inexpensive and easy to use. It can be stored near or inside the shower on a wall-mounted hook. Using it will help prevent hard water deposits and soap scum from drying and accumulating on the surface.
Or, grab a microfiber cloth instead. Many customers prefer this option, as the cloth can get into hard-to-reach places, around the corners and door handles. Get in the habit of wiping the doors down after every shower, and you’ll significantly cut down your cleaning time — you won’t have to scrub those spots later on.
Any hard water or soapy buildup that isn’t removed can cause damage to the glass, giving it an etched or cloudy look. Plus, frequent cleanings can help stop the growth of mold and mildew.
Take care, however, because what you clean with is almost as important as how often you tackle this task.
You can also talk with a professional company that applies protective polymer glass coating. Some companies guarantee their treatments for several years, and will do the cleaning for you before applying the coating.
One word of warning: never use or apply any product to your glass tub enclosure or frameless shower doors without first talking to your contractor. Some custom glass contractors add special finishes or coatings to the glass. 
You could ruin your shower doors – or void your warranty – if you use unapproved products for cleaning or treating the glass surface.
