Let me guess, you’re having some issues with your shower. It’s not time to renovate, but there are a few small things that get on your nerves.
Don’t worry! Janssen Glass has a few tips for helping you eliminate common shower problems.
Less Than Sparkling Glass
Don’t make these common mistakes with glass shower doors. If your glass is looking lackluster, it might be time to switch up your cleaning routine! Make sure to clean top to bottom, with a quality solution, to avoid getting dirt or debris on the parts you’ve already cleaned.
Many homeowners don’t know that ammonia can taint your glass by creating a film or tint. If you’re looking for a quality cleaning solution, Sprayway is a great ammonia-free option that leaves a spotless finish.
Put the paper towels down! Paper towels and old rags can leave behind lint. If your goal is streak-free glass, use a lint-free cotton cloth and squeegee.
Fix That Dreaded Drip
Tired of hearing “drip, drip, drip” all night long? Don’t rip out the faucet in a fit of rage. There might be a solution to the drip, without replacing the whole showerhead.
It may be time to replace the cartridge inside your faucet. Instructions vary by manufacturer, but in most cases you can install the new cartridge yourself. Make sure to turn off the water supply and check out this how-to guide for single-handle, cartridge-style faucets.
Homeowners often get aggressive with their grout, too aggressive. Grout can be damaged by the use of bleach and other highly abrasive chemicals. Mild cleaning solutions, some elbow grease, and a stiff brush are your best bet for clean grout. If your problem is mildew, here are some tips for getting rid of mold and mildew.
Do you have puddles around your shower? Remember that glass shower doors are not watertight! If you suspect issues around the frame of your shower, normal use does take its toll, consider replacing shower caulking.
