Shower Door Care and Cleaning

Your shower enclosure can provide years of service and beauty with a minimum of care and maintenance. Cleaning your enclosure safely and effectively takes the right cleaner. With minimum maintenance and the right cleaner, your bath enclosure should be beautiful for years to come. It is recommended that the glass be cleaned and dried with a squeegee and towel after each use.

The key is to understand what types of cleaners to use and to avoid. Many cleaners labeled for use in bathrooms can damage the metal finish or scratch the glass of an enclosure.

A short list of cleaning agents that should be avoided because they either damage the metal or scratch the enclosure surface include:

  • Vinegar or vinegar-based products
  • Abrasive or soft-abrasive powders and liquids
  • Bleach or bleach-based cleaners
  • Steel or Teflon pads

Frameless Shower enclosures are esthetically pleasing but not water tight. The pitch of the curb is a determining factor in a shower enclosure leaking or not. Doors by Mike is not responsible for curbs that are not pitched correctly. Shower heads and body sprayers should not be aimed directly at the door or the gaps and tolerance between the glass.
