Glass cleaning recommendations

CARING FOR SHOWER GLASS WITHOUT EUROGUARD™ PROTECTION

  • We recommend that after the last person has finished showering, rinse down the shower glass to remove any soap or shampoo residue (be mindful not to direct water at the door as water may escape through the gaps on either side). Wipe any water off the glass with either a rubber squeegee or with a towel. By doing this you are physically removing the bulk of any residue from the surface of the glass before it has a chance to dry. Residues are substances such as soap, shampoo, calcium and lime from the water, skin flakes, etc.

  • Liquid soap will leave fewer residues on the glass than bar soap.

  • The outside of the shower can be cleaned with a regular glass cleaner product.

  • Never use any abrasive cleaners or cloths. Toughened glass will scratch more readily than annealed glass.

  • If a shower is not cleaned regularly, then residues will build up and start to fuse into the surface of the glass. Once the glass reaches this stage it is more difficult to bring it back to a clean state.

CARING FOR EUROGUARD™ PROTECTED SHOWER GLASS

In order to maximise the benefit and durability of the Euroguard™ coating, ensure the following maintenance is applied:

DO'S

  • After each use rinse your shower glass with water (to avoid water escaping do not direct water at the gaps), then squeegee down or towel dry.

  • If you do notice any buildup on the glass, a solution of mild dish detergent mixed with water (a ratio of about 10% detergent to 90% water) within a spray bottle will remove any dirt, soap scum, hardwater or contaminants. Apply with a trigger bottle and then simply rinse with cold water and dry.

DON'TS

  • Do not use aggressive (especially highly alkaline chemicals such as bleach) or abrasive cleaners.

  • Do not use scouring pads or abrasive cloths.

  • For areas with exceptionally hard water, high silica levels or bore water, more regular cleaning with a microfibre cloth and
    an acidic cleaner may be necessary.

Remember this treatment is LOW maintenance and easy clean, not no maintenance, no clean.

CLEANING OF INTERNAL PARTITIONS AND SPLASHBACK GLAZING

A mild detergent, mild acid or ammonia-free window cleaner and a simple wipe down will easily remove dirt and contaminants. Use a clean grit-free squeegee or microfibre cloth and definitely no scouring pads or abrasive cloths.


For special Low E coated surfaces, exercise special care when cleaning and refer to the manufacturer's instructions.
