With the proper care and maintenance, your new enclosure will prove to be virtually worry-free. The frame and hardware, if given the proper care, will remain as beautiful as it is now. Neglecting or ignoring the basic rules of maintenance will result in your frame or hardware not living up to its potential long life. In addition to keeping your frame and 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. By following these simple guidelines, you can increase the life of your hardware and glass greatly. You have made an investment in your home by including an enclosure of the highest quality of materials.
* The best way to maintain the beautiful finish on your new door is to wipe it down after every use. After you shower, use a dry towel to thoroughly dry your door. If the door 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 door after every use, a weekly cleaning is suggested. The correct method to be used in cleaning your door is a mild soap and warm water mixture. Mix a couple of drops of mild liquid soap, such as Ivory or similar product, into a cup of warm water. Using a soft non-abrasive cloth, proceed to clean your frame or hardware. After you’ve cleaned your frame or hardware, rinse thoroughly with clean warm water and dry.
WARNING: Never use an abrasive cleanser of any kind on your frame or hardware. Many of the components are coated with a clear coat that will be irreparably damaged if subjected to harsh abrasive chemicals or scrubbing devices.
* One way to keep your glass free of potentially damaging water spots is to apply the product Rain-X. This can be found in the automotive section of most stores. Apply as directed and this will allow the water to bead. We also recommend that you squeegee the glass after every use. A routine of using a squeegee on a daily basis is a great habit to get into. It’s a minimal investment in time and will save you a great deal of cleaning at a later date. If you have any questions regarding these instructions, contact us.
