What NOT to Do When Cleaning Your Shower

 Do you use bleach to clean your shower?

There are a few things to avoid when cleaning your shower to avoid damage to your glass and hardware.

Don’t Use Harsh Cleaners 

These cleaners can leave small scratches on the surface of your glass which can reduce the clarity of the glass with time. These cleaners can etch and pit the glass over time, leaving the glass dull. If you have to wear gloves while using the cleaner, it is too harsh for your shower. 

Avoid Leave on Cleaners

If these products are not washed off correctly, residue and contaminants can be left in the small pores of the glass.

Don’t Use Cleaners on Hardware 

The chemicals in cleaners will pit and etch the anodized or painted finish on the hardware.  The chemicals can also attack and damage the gaskets and seals between the hardware and the glass.

Shower Maintenance to Include in Your Daily Routine

showers ann arbor
 Do you regularly wipe down your shower? 

When getting out of the shower, do you keep your fan running? 

There are several simple steps that can be done daily, or after each shower, to keep your shower looking great.  

• Always run the bathroom fan during and after taking a shower.  This helps to maintain good ventilation which will help to keep mold and mildew off your shower.

• After showering, use a squeegee to remove the water on the glass.  A quick pass with the squeegee
will help to avoid water spots and minerals/contaminants from collecting on the surface.

• Wipe down wet hardware with a soft, dry towel or rag.  This will help to keep spots away and contaminants from collecting on the surface.

Shower Door Options for Your Bathroom Remodel

 Are you ready to get rid of your bathtub? 

Do you want to upgrade your space, but don’t know which option is best? 

Working with an experienced shower door provider ensures you’ll have the best options for your bathroom remodel in Ann Arbor.

Here are a couple glass shower door options when replacing your tub for a standing shower: 

bathroom remodel ann arbor
Sliding Door: A sliding shower door is the most space efficient design for a tub to shower replacement.  This eliminates many of the issues of trying to accommodate a swinging door in a more compact space.  Some homeowners have been turned off sliding doors because they are expecting fully framed, low end sliding doors that they have seen in older or other homes.  There is a wide range of attractive, high-end sliding shower doors available.  For example, barn door sliders provide a frameless look with the space saving features of a slider.

Door & Panel: A typical tub is about 60” wide, a door & panel arrangement would have a door on one
side and glass panel on the other.  The size of the door will be determined by the constraints of the space.  While a 28” door is typical, a narrower door may be needed if there are other obstructions like the vanity or the toilet.

What to Look Out for During Your Tub and Shower Upgrade

bathroom remodel ann arbor
 Do you want your bathroom to have a more updated look? 

Do you want to replace your tub for a shower, but don’t know where to start? 

This type of remodel can present complications that are made easier when working with an experienced shower door provider. 

Challenges with this Type of Remodel

Bathrooms that were originally designed to have a tub may present several constraints when it comes to designing the shower door.  The principal challenge is the space available in the bathroom.  It’s common in bathrooms that originally had a tub to have the toilet located very close to the tub.  This limits where the shower door can be placed because the door must be able to swing out without hitting the toilet.  Sometimes the location of the toilet and vanity preclude being able to use a swinging shower door at all and the shower designer must use a sliding shower door.

What Makes a Steam Shower Different?

 Are you thinking about upgrading your shower to a steam shower? 

Do you want to add a little luxury into your bathroom space? 

A steam shower can upgrade your space and includes therapeutic features. 

What makes a steam shower different? 

steam shower ann arbor
When designing most showers for a new bathroom or bathroom remodel, proper ventilation of the steam and moisture created during a hot shower is a design feature. However, there is one type of shower where the shower design works to contain that steam within the shower, Steam Showers.  In the steam shower design, the glass walls and doors extend from floor to ceiling.  Another unique feature that is available on steam showers is an operable transom.  The transom acts as a small window above the shower door.  This gives you the ability to let some of the steam escape to better regulate the temperature.

Can Any Bathroom Contain a Steam Shower?

 Are you thinking about doing some bathroom renovations?

Do you want to upgrade your shower experience to something more luxurious? 

Before committing to a steam shower in Ann Arbor, makes sure it’s the right fit for your space.

Can any bathroom have a steam shower?  

steam shower ann arbor
No.  The shower area needs to be constructed of materials that are resistant to water and moisture.  The entire space, including the ceiling, would need to be tiled.  Drywall and other pervious materials will be damaged from the moisture generated in a steam shower.  The light fixture that may be present in the steam shower may also need to be designed to withstand high humidity.

Before making any commitments to a shower style, make sure it’s suitable to your space or that you’re ready for a full bathroom remodel! If a steam shower isn’t right for you, consider updating your space with a sleek glass shower door.

What is a Fogged Window?

Have you noticed your windows start to fog?

Does the fog in your window clear up at times?

Insulated window units are made up of two panes of glass separated by a spacer.  A sealant is applied along the edges of the unit to seal off the space between the two panes of glass.  This space provides a measure of insulation and allows for you to see out the window. When this seal fails, outside air and humidity are able to enter the space between the window panes.  The difference in temperatures on the outside and the inside of the windowpanes can cause condensation to form and create a “fogged” window.

The seal between the windowpanes can be broken for several reasons.  Age is the primary reason as the sealant begins to degrade.  Movement and flexing of the windows over time can cause also cause the seal to break.
