Cleaning glass pool fencing can be difficult, but it’s certainly not impossible – if you do it right. However, doing the wrong thing when you’re cleaning your glass pool fencing can cause all sorts of problems, and can result in glass that looks a lot older than it is or that is visibly damaged or worn.
Luckily, most glass pool fences are pretty tough, which means that they aren’t easily damaged. Here you will find a short list of the 5 most common mistakes people make when it comes to cleaning their glass pool fence. Avoid the following at all costs:
- Using Harsh Abrasives
Although it might be tempting to use abrasives to clean your pool fence – especially if it’s quite dirty or hasn’t been cleaned for some time – you need to avoid the temptation! Abrasives like steel wool or sandpaper can scratch and damage your glass panels, giving them a worn look.
They will also scratch any of the metal components of your fence, making them susceptible to corrosion. Finally, abrasives will remove any nano protection that your fence has, which will make it wear faster under normal conditions.
