HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR NEW SHOWER

BEFORE YOU USE YOUR SHOWER FOR THE FIRST TIME.


We know that you want your new shower screen to be as perfectly pristine looking in the future as it is when it’s first installed That's why we recommend against using or cleaning the shower enclosure for at least 24 hours after installation so the silicone has time to fully cure!


Don't touch anything inside, avoid getting any portion of its surface wet, cleaning or wiping the nearby area, as this may create gaps which lead to leaking in the future (Our Warranty is void if you move or use the screen before the silicone is dry).

CARE OF YOUR SHOWER SCREEN

To keep your shower looking its best, we recommend that you wipe it down after every use. A soft non-abrasive cloth or squeegee will do the trick in getting rid of excess water. Once you've cleared the water, be sure to dry the glass and metal components thoroughly.


The glass in our shower screens is made from safety glass, but they can still be damaged if they're subject to hard knocks or extreme changes in temperature. To avoid any problems, make sure that very hot or very cold water is never sprayed directly on the glass.




CLEANING YOUR SHOWER SCREEN

Shower screens can become dirty very easily. If you do not wipe the screen down after every shower, then weekly cleaning is recommended.


Soap scum, mildew, and hard water deposits can build up quickly, and over time this can make your shower screen difficult to clean. The simplest way to clean your shower screen is to wash it down with warm water and dry it with a soft cloth. If there is still dirt present after drying, you can use a mild soap and water mixture. Just mix a couple of drops of mild liquid soap into a cup of warm water, then using a soft cloth, clean the shower screen and then rinse it thoroughly with clean water. Dry it off well to prevent any spots from forming.

Please be careful what you use to clean your shower screen, as some products may damage it. Never use any acid or alkali “clean up” solutions or other cleaners that contain abrasives, acids, or alkali. Do not use sharp instruments, scouring pads, dirty or gritty rags, powdered

cleanser, steel wool or any other type of abrasive products. These can damage the surface of the shower screen and cause it to become scratched or etched. Some shower components may be coated with a clear lacquer that will be irreparably damaged if subjected to abrasive chemicals and/or scrubbing devices.


Finally, please check the instructions on cleaning products before use, as they may not be appropriate for some frames and screens.



LEAKING SHOWER SCREEN


Shower screens are a great addition to any bathroom, providing both style and function. However, it's important to remember that shower screens are not waterproof. The smaller the shower area and the closer the shower head is to any moving parts, such as swing doors or moving panels, the greater the chance that water will find its way out. Small amounts of water may also end up on the floor when swing doors with drip seals are opened.

Frameless glass shower screens are even more likely to leak because there are no overlapping gasketed joints to prevent the water from escaping


By following these simple tips, you can keep your shower screen looking new for years to come.
