Glass railings are a stylish addition to any business, offering a modern look and unobstructed views that make your space seem open and airy. What’s even better, glass railings are easy to maintain, making them a popular choice among business owners. Follow these maintenance tips to keep your glass railings looking like new:
Clean regularly to remove dust and dirt.
A simple solution of two tablespoons of dish soap and one quart of warm water is all you need to clean glass railings. Use a clean towel or sponge to clean the glass and then use a squeegee to remove the water. A lint-free towel can be used to wipe away any stray streaks left on the glass railing.
Tackle grime by soaking affected areas.
For stuck on dirt or animal droppings, use a white vinegar solution to soak sections of your glass railing that have accumulated grime. Mix a solution of 50 percent white vinegar and 50 percent water, then pour on the grime. Leave the area to soak and then gently wash away the cleaning solution; rubbing it too hard can cause the dirt to scratch the glass.
Say goodbye to water spots.
Sometimes after cleaning or after a rain storm (in the case of outdoor railings) water spots can appear on glass railings. Cleaning solutions made with vinegar, lemons, baking soda, or commercial cleaners can be used to remove water spots. Be sure to squeegee after cleaning to prevent more water spots from forming.
Inspect brackets monthly.
While glass railings hold up better than wood or metal railings, it’s important to check the backets regularly to ensure that they are in good condition. Look for loose brackets or supports and repair or replace promptly to ensure the safety of your glass railing.
Glass railings can be used for staircases, balconies, fences, and more. If your business is ready to upgrade to a new, modern look, glass railings are a great way to do so. To learn more about glass railings and how they can work in your business, contact TrueView online today.
