The Do’s & Don’ts of Maintaining Glass Shower Doors, Spring Valley, New York

Installing glass shower doors is an excellent way to make your bathroom more elegant. However, to keep the doors shiny and clear for many years to come, they need to be properly cared for. Here are some tips for maintaining them. 


Squeegee after each use.

Mold and mildew can harm your shower doors. Keep them at bay by squeegeeing the doors after every shower. Remind every member of your household to do the same, and hang the squeegee in the shower for easy access.

Clean them with vinegar. 

To kill bacteria and remove soap scum, mold, and mildew, regularly clean your shower doors using a spray bottle with undiluted white vinegar. After squeegeeing the wet doors, spray them with the vinegar and then with water to reduce the risk of hard water stains. 

Remove stains with baking soda.

Open and close the doors with excessive force. 

Handling your shower doors with excessive force can shatter the glass or damage the seal. To extend their life span, open and close the doors with care. 

Use harsh cleaners. 

To keep the doors free of blemishes, pay attention to the cleaning products you use. In particular, avoid abrasive or acid-based cleaners. Over time, these products can cause cracks and other types of damage. 

Leave the doors closed. 

Leaving the doors closed after you shower traps humidity and may lead to mold and mildew buildups. Protect your doors from these harmful substances by leaving them open after showering.
