The inclusion of your beautiful and functional shower enclosure into your bathroom should provide years of enjoyment, as well as increasing the value of your home. With proper care and maintenance, your new enclosure will prove to be virtually worry-free. The high quality hardware that you have chosen will require a minimal amount of attention.
How to care for your hardware (hinges, handles, etc.)
The hardware, if given the proper care, will remain as beautiful as it is right now. Neglecting or ignoring the basic rules of maintenance will result in it not living up to its potential long life.
- The best way to maintain the beautiful finish of your hardware is to wipe it down after every use. After you shower use a dry towel to thoroughly dry your hardware-if it is kept clean after every use it will not collect mineral deposits that require the use of a soap solution.
- If you are unable to dry your hinges after every use, a weekly cleaning is suggested. The correct cleaning method is to use a mild soap and warm water solution. Mix a couple of drops of mild liquid soap into a cup of warm water and, using a soft non-abrasive cloth, proceed to clean your hardware. After you’ve cleaned rinse thoroughly with clean warm water and dry.
- WARNING: Never use an abrasive cleanser of any kind on your hardware. Many of the components are coated with a clear lacquer that will be irreparably damaged if subjected to harsh abrasive chemicals or scrubbing devices.
How to care for your glass
In addition to keeping your hardware clean, it is of equal importance to keep your glass clean. Glass that is neglected or ignored will accumulate water spots which will eventually turn into mineral deposits. The best way to keep the glass free of potentially damaging water spots is to squeegee the glass after each use. A routine of using a squeegee on a daily basis is a great habit to get into and one that will save you a great deal of cleaning at a later date.
You have made an investment in your home by including a shower enclosure of the highest quality materials and by following the simple guidelines above you will certainly increase the life of your hardware and glass.
