A frameless glass fence can make the area around your pool safer, particularly if you have young children, without obstructing the view of your pool and backyard. A glass fence is easy to maintain by following some simple tips.
There are many cleaning products that are advertised that say they can get a glass fence sparkling clean, but you don’t need them. Some cleaning products contain phosphoric acid or other acids or chemicals. You should not use them because they are abrasive and can scratch the surface of the glass fence.
You can remove dirt, dust, and other contaminants from your pool fence by using a solution of liquid dishwashing soap and water. Wash the fence with a sponge, not a rough scrubber. After you have finished washing your glass fence, rinse it thoroughly with a hose to remove any suds and soap residue. You can wipe it dry or let it air dry.
Don’t clean your glass fence when it is hot because that can cause damage. The best times to clean a glass pool fence are in the morning or evening when the sun is not too bright.
Tape and adhesives can damage the surface of the glass and make it look unattractive. You should not use any tape or adhesive unless it specifically says that it is easy to remove without leaving a residue.
Mowing the lawn can throw pebbles and sticks against the glass fence. While a fence made from tempered glass is strong enough to withstand small flying debris, it can become scratched, which can reduce its lifespan. Before you mow your lawn, look around for any debris that could get thrown into the air and hit the glass fence.
You should check the screws, bolts, and fasteners that hold your fence together from time to time. Tighten any that are loose and have any damaged parts replaced to make sure the fence remains stable.
