Shower curtains often get damaged quickly whether it’s due to damage by pets or general wear and tear. Shower curtains are difficult to keep clean and attractive. Glass shower doors are a much better option as they are generally easier to maintain in a clean attractive manner. Installing a glass shower door or enclosure is quite challenging and it is best to leave it up to a professional.

A shower curtain should never be run through the washer or dryer and must be cleaned by a professional which can become quite costly.
Wiping glass doors down is fairly simple, most often simply use a squeeze after taking a shower and in just a very short time after every few shower it prevents grime buildup. Rather than pay a few hundred dollars for a professional to clean your shower curtain, all you have to do is spend a few bucks on a cleaning product to remove grime from your glass shower door. In fact, there are products which are available that can greatly reduce the time necessary to keep your shower glass looking great. These glass treatment products are applied to the surface of the glass either just prior or just after the glass is tempered. Your glass professional can recommend a glass treatment products best suited to your needs and budget.
