Dealing with Shower Enclosure Problems
As soon as your shower enclosure has been installed, you might feel very excited about using it immediately. If you have invested in a high quality enclosure, you can expect to use it over a long period of time. The only thing that you have to remember though is that there could be some issues that you might face and you should know exactly how to deal with them.
It is normal for enclosures to get dirty, as they are used on a daily basis. Even though it is drenched by water every day, it is not enough to clean the enclosure. Take note that water alone is not enough since there could be all sorts of dust and dirt that may accumulate. Mould and mildew may also grow. It is important that you wipe the enclosure with a dry cloth as often as you can. If there are stains, you can use special cleaning solutions to remove them. It won’t take much time since these cleaning agents can soften the stains. You can also use a stiff brush to remove any stains by force. You just have to be careful not to damage the enclosure during the process.
Enclosures are usually made from glass. This material is fragile. Even though enclosures are made from thick glass, it is still glass. With extreme force or impact, the glass may break. Therefore, it is important to ensure that it remains protected. You have to be careful, especially when using the movable shower head as you may hit the enclosure and break it. The problem with broken glass is that it can’t be used again. If the crack is not too severe, you might want to fix it with glue, but it won’t be a permanent solution.
This will only happen if the enclosure was not installed properly. There are enclosures that you can install by yourself since there are instructions that come with them, and even videos that you can look up online. But, if you are not a professional installer, you may not be able to install it properly. This is why it could be shaky at times. It is important that you hire a professional to help you do the job. When they install the enclosure, you can expect it to be stable and rigid. If there are problems later on, you can ask them to check the enclosure and fix it.
With a high quality walk in shower enclosure you won’t have to face these problems at all. Even if you are on a tight budget, you still need to see to it that you don’t settle for anything less.
