The maintenance and upkeep for shower glass can be a lengthy and tiresome one. Showers are especially known for the stains and soap scum build up that appears on the glass. These stains can be very difficult to remove once they appear. Or if you leave new glass too long, it’s only a matter of time before they appear.
So what kind of aftercare is needed to prevent this?
If your glass is untreated, it will require constant and regular cleaning to ensure that the water spots do not become permanent. When left to long, stains like this can etch themselves into the glass, causing potentially permanent damage. Ideally you will want to stay on top of spots and stains and soon as they appear. The longer you leave them, the harder they will be to clean.
If you have treated and protected your glass, you can sit back and take it easy. Treated glass just needs occasional wipe downs to prevent build up, but due to the nature of the treatment, it mostly takes care of it by itself by repelling water, thus preventing spots and stains. When you notice some starting to build up, just give them a quick wipe and they’ll be gone! Doing this regularly will ensure that your crystal clear glass will stay that way for years.
