Cleaning & Maintenance
With proper cleaning and maintenance you should expect many years of beautiful service from your new shower enclosure.
First, if you are considering a new, frameless shower enclosure, we strongly recommend using ShowerGuard glass, which has a built-in surface protectant and warranty. Once you have a new glass shower, here are a few tips for keeping it squeaky clean:
Do Not Clean New Showers
Allow 24 hours for the silicone to dry before cleaning or using the new enclosure.
Apply a Glass Surface Protectant
We recommend applying Invisible Shield renewable surface protectant to new glass, and re-applying every several months as needed.
Remember to Squeegee, Especially Hard Water
Use a Cleret Shower Squeegee to remove excess water and soap after each shower. Allowing hard water to remain on the door could damage the glass or metal hardware over time.
Use Non-Abrasive Cleaners and Sponges
We also recommend Soft Scrub with Lemon used with a Scotch Brite (blue) non-abrasive scrub pad to remove tough stains without scratching. Do not use cleaners that could scratch the glass or damage metal finishes.
Do NOT use the following cleaners:
- Vinegar or vinegar-based cleaners
- Abrasive powers
- Steel wool or Teflon pad
- Ammonia-based cleaners
