If you’ve tried every product and cleaning hack to remove scum, stains and water spots, professional shower glass restoration is a great solution. Here are the main advantages that people see from shower glass restoration.
- Save time cleaning in future, as shower glass restoration reduces the effort of ongoing maintenance.
- Save costs associated with shower glass replacement. Restoration will also reduce the potential for future damage and consequent repair costs.
- Save the environment and keep your shower glass out of the landfill unnecessarily.
Importance of Shower Glass Coating
While our specialists can certainly bring your glass back to life, it’s important to protect against future buildup and water spotting as well. Unprotected glass will always degrade—bringing you back to square one, as you consider whether to replace or restore once again.
In a single application, our Enduroshield coating will create an invisible barrier on the glass to repel hard water minerals and soap scum. Being anti-stick, the benefit of this is that your shower will stay much cleaner for longer, and will be easier to clean when you do need to give it a scrub. Our shower glass coating provides a durable and slick finish.
Types of Glass Damage
Glass is sensitive to damage, and can easily become discoloured, stained, cracked or scratched. The level of severity can vary from mild to severe. Here are the most common types of glass damage that our specialists have dealt with in their years of experience.
Hard Water Stains
By far, hard water stains are the most common culprit when it comes to glass damage. This is because when water droplets are left on the glass, the mineral deposits etch into the glass in the shape of water drips. This can result in a hazy look, which is very stubborn to remove.
Soap Scum Stains
Like hard water, soap scum has a filmy white or grey appearance—and is also the result of mineral deposits left on the glass surface. Calcium stearate and magnesium stearate react with hard water, creating a chalky and filmy residue that can prove very difficult to clean.
Scratches can be unsightly, tarnishing an otherwise pristine piece of glass, and are usually caused by over-aggressive cleaners. The severity of scratches can range from being invisible to the naked eye, all the way through to being the product of graffiti. Unfortunately, there is very little that can be done to remove scratches from glass so care must be taken when cleaning to minimise this risk of damage.
