Glass fencing is an attractive way to enclose a pool and still have a view of your backyard and what is happening in the water. If you have a glass fence around your pool, you want to keep it clean and sparkling. Here are some tips on how to keep your glass pool fence clear of dirt and contaminants as we head into summer.
A nano coating, such as Diamond Seal or Nano Clear Shield, can protect your glass fence from many damaging pollutants. A nano coating will make it easy to remove dirt and other environmental contaminants without the need for harsh cleaners that could damage the fence’s surface.
If your glass fence has been treated with a nano coating, it will be easy to clean. Avoid glass cleaners because they can leave a residue on your fence.
The best way to clean your glass fence is with warm water and a little liquid dish soap. Use a sponge to wipe the glass with soap and water. This should remove any dirt and grime that has accumulated on the glass. You can remove the suds by spraying the fence with a hose. Allow the fence to air dry.
Another option is to use equal parts white vinegar and water. Use a nonabrasive plastic scrubber to wipe the vinegar solution on the glass fence, rinse with warm water, and then allow the fence to air dry.
Use a slightly damp soft cloth or sponge to wipe the fence railings and posts. You can also use a microfiber cloth to avoid causing scratches. If the railings or posts are powder-coated and there is a stain, use methyl-based mineral spirits or mineral-based turpentine to avoid damaging the coating.
Regular maintenance can keep your glass pool fence shiny and clean. Apply nano coatings and wash your fence every six months with soap and water, or more often if necessary.
