Shower Glass Restoration
Glass shower doors, while adding beauty to your bathroom, can become a huge headache when trying to keep them clear and free of water spots. Water damage (caused by the chemicals in our water) can occur on new glass within 2 months of installation. Since glass is porous, the hard water stains you eventually see, is in the pores of the glass not on the surface.
People then tend to use all types of over-the-counter cleaners that in most cases don’t get the job done and in some instances will scratch the glass. Some of the products contain abrasives which is one of the causes .
People also will use razor blades, abrasive sponges, brillo pads, and steel wool some of which also cause scratches. Razor blades, when used properly (going in one direction on a wet surface), will not scratch glass. Very Fine steel wool (Type-OOOO) also won’t scratch glass, so if you try removing the spotting yourself, this is the type to use.
When lawn sprinklers continue to hit your windows day after day, the same thing happens. You get what looks like permanent water spots on the glass, which won’t come off with a regular cleaning. This situation will only get worse if the sprinkler spray isn’t adjusted.
We have a way of removing hard water stains from shower doors (and other glass) without using any type of acid. And our product won’t harm any surface in your home. We then apply a hydro-phobic sealer called Hydro Shield which fills the pores in the glass. The water spotting now is on the sealer, not in the pores, which makes the surface 75% easier to clean.

Some more before and after pics:
The best thing to do is after the last shower of the day, wipe the glass down with the towel. Then once a week clean the glass with a mild cleaner. Even if you completely ignore cleaning the glass for months, the residue will wipe off although a little more elbow grease is needed.
Besides glass shower doors, windows, and windshields, the sealer can also be used on ceramic tile and grout, porcelain toilets and sinks (no more rings in the porcelain), granite and other natural stones whether it is a floor or counter top. The sealer comes with up to a 15 year warranty against staining, depending on the surface. The surfaces are properly prepared and the sealer is professionally applied. It will make the surfaces 75% easier to clean and the surfaces will look newer for a longer period of time.
You’ve made a sizable investment in your home, so protect the items that can be sealed in order to keep replacement costs down in the future.
