Keeping Your Glass Pool Fence Pristine & Clean

Cleaning Clear Glass Fencing

If you own a pool, then you are aware of the safety issues surrounding it. There are several types of fencing available however glass fences have gained popularity because of their aesthetic beauty and ability to show you what is happening on the other side of the fence in an instant.

Are you interested in having a glass fence installed around your pool area but are worried that you might have a hard time cleaning it? There really is no need to worry, since it is really is easy to maintain and clean glass fences without having to spend too much time, effort and money.

Stay away from glass cleaners. Glass Cleaners may leave residues on your glass fence. The best and cheapest cleaner is simple warm water and liquid soap (the kind that you use for your glasses and plates). Use a sponge to apply the soap and water on the glass just like you would when washing glasses and plates. Remove the soap suds by simply hosing it down with good clean water.

Leave it to air dry.

For the railings and posts, it is recommended that you use a slightly damp soft cloth or sponge to wipe it clean. If you have a microfiber cloth on hand, this is also good as it is not harsh enough to cause micro scratches on the surface of the railings and posts.

If your rail or post is powder coated and it has a stubborn stain, manufacturers recommend that you use methyl-based mineral spirits or mineral-based turpentine to avoid damaging the powder coating.

Last but not least you should try to clean your glass fence and its attachments at least every 6 months to give it a longer life span.

Now that you know how easy it really is to clean and maintain a glass fence, there is no reason for you to not have a glass fence installed, is there?
