A sunroom is a beautiful and functional addition to any home. It allows you to enjoy the beauty of nature without having to go outdoors. But as with any room, this space needs regular cleaning and maintenance.
Compared to other materials, glass is more prone to looking dirty. Its transparency makes even tiny specks of dirt and smudges easily visible. Over time, it accumulates dirt and grime, which make it appear cloudy and grimy, thereby obstructing visibility. Keeping it clean is necessary for both aesthetics and function. But improper cleaning methods can damage the glass.
Find out how to properly clean the glass enclosure of your sunroom to keep it looking pristine and to prolong its lifespan.
Pro Tips for Cleaning Glass Enclosures
Thoroughly cleaning the glass on a regular basis might seem daunting, but the payoff is worth the effort. Adopt best practices in glass maintenance to make the chore easier. Once you’ve gotten the hang of it, you will be able to clean your sunroom like a pro.
Don’t be too hard on the glass
Although durable, the glass could still break under immense pressure. As such, avoid exerting too much pressure or weight on the glass when cleaning, as this puts it at risk of cracking or shattering. Oftentimes, dirt doesn’t readily come off because it has hardened. Take your time cleaning the glass to avoid damaging it.
- Apply a layer of cleaning solution across the entire surface and wait for it to soften the dirt.
- After a few minutes, take a sponge and vigorously wipe the glass.
- Rinse off the solution before using a squeegee to remove the excess water.
- Use a dry soft cloth to dry the glass to prevent streaks.
Keep an eye out for any damage.
Regular cleaning sessions offer more than clear glass. The time you spend wiping down and maintaining your glass enclosure also gives you the opportunity to thoroughly check the surface for any damage and alerts you to the beginning signs of a potential problem. As you’re wiping dirt off the glass, inspect it for any scratches and cracks. If you find any, contact a reliable repair service to patch them up. When these tiny cracks are left unaddressed, they will grow and compromise the whole glass panel.
