Glass balustrades not only add value to your home but are visually appealing and create the illusion of additional space. However, these benefits can quickly be lost if your glass balustrades aren’t well maintained. So what do you need to know?
The team at Origin Architectural are perfectly placed to offer customers – both old and new – advice on how to keep their glass balustrades clean. So, today we’re sharing our guide on how to maintain your glass balustrades to keep them looking as good as new for years to come!
Let’s start with one of our most asked questions about glass balustrade maintenance, which is how easy are glass balustrades to keep clean? Depending on the type of household you are, and where you plan to install your balustrade – this is a crucial question and can be the deciding factor when selecting the right type of balustrade design for you.
So, let’s just answer this one straight away; yes. Whether you’re installing a glass balustrade inside your home or externally, they are hard-wearing and easy to clean, making them a great low-maintenance option for all types of homeowners. However, that isn’t to say you can neglect the upkeep of your glass balustrades and still expect them to stay looking shiny and clear. Like with all things, a certain level of maintenance is necessary to keep them looking good. So, let’s move on to the best and most straightforward ways to keep your glass balustrades clean.
Nothing works quite as well as your humble soap and water, so why not treat your glass balustrades like you would your washing up? Using a soft cloth and some warm water with your standard dish soap can be all that is required to remove marks and dirt from your glass balustrade. Not only cheap, but this method is quick, easy and effective!
As standard, we advise customers to clean their glass balustrades thoroughly once every 1 to 2 months to keep them looking sparkling and new. However, this does depend, of course, on where your balustrade is fitted. For instance, a balcony glass balustrade is likely to need a little more upkeep than one placed on a landing. If you are in a coastal area we recommend wiping your balustrade down every month. This will prevent the build-up of salt spray in the air.
