When you have interior glass installed, it’s important to perform general upkeep on the glass. This upkeep will ensure that the glass looks as beautiful as when it was installed. Learn more about how to keep your glass clean and well-maintained in this article.
To clean your interior glass, use either mild soap or a glass-specific cleaner, like Windex, with a soft microfiber towel. If you’re cleaning laminated or insulated glass, do not allow the cleaner to come in contact with the edge of the glass. Do not use any abrasive materials, because this may scratch the glass. If your interior glass is a glass countertop, you can remove food by soaking the glass in water for a few moments. After, use a non-abrasive material, like a sponge or towel, to remove the food.
Preventing Breakage and Scratches
Tempered glass is one of the strongest forms of glass, and resistant to breakage. However, it’s possible for tempered glass to break under extreme stress. To avoid putting any strain on the tempered glass surface, avoid placing any objects that are extremely hot or cold on the surface. In addition, avoid putting any strong, point-loaded force against the glass. This can help avoid breakage. However, tempered glass requires a significant amount of force to break, so it’s highly unlikely that any blunt force you’ll put against the glass will cause breakage. To avoid scratches, do not drag objects across the tempered glass. Instead, carefully lift objects and place them on the glass. In addition, if you have a glass countertop, avoid chopping food on this countertop without a cutting board underneath. If you notice a crack in your tempered glass, it’s time to get it replaced. A skilled glass contractor can easily perform the replacement.
In the event that your glass becomes chipped, it will need to be replaced as soon as possible. Or perhaps, you’d like to get your glass replaced after it’s become extremely scratched. In this event, you’ll need to hire a glass contractor to assist. A glass contractor can repair and replace your glass windows, doors, wall dividers, countertops, and more.
