How to Keep Your Custom Mirrors Safe and Clean

Custom mirrors are an elegant addition to almost any interior space. Extend the life of your mirrors and make the most of your investment with proper care. If you’re not sure how to care for your new mirrors, take a look at these need-to-know steps by room.

Bathroom Mirror Care

The bathroom is filled with steam, humidity, and moisture. While a hot shower or steamy bath can warm you in the chilly winter weather, it can also wreak havoc on your creatively designed custom mirrors.

Along with the damp environment, your efforts to keep the mirrors clean can also cause issue. Stay away from tarnish and black spots with these simple steps:

How to Combat Hard Water on Your Glass Shower Enclosure

Bathroom With Glass Door

A great benefit of glass shower enclosures is they are non-porous, so they are more resistant to mildew compared to curtains. However, if you have hard water in your home, your enclosures can build up with water spots and soap scum.

Hard water has a higher content of minerals like magnesium and calcium compared to soft water. If you don’t have a water softener, here are a couple of ways to combat the effects of hard water on your glass shower enclosure.

Clean Your Glass Doors Correctly

When you are done showering, the glass enclosure may be left with condensation. As these water droplets evaporate, the mineral residue is left behind, leaving you with unsightly water spots.

Besides water spots, hard water can leave behind soap scum. The minerals in hard water do not react well with soap; instead of lathering up, the ions form an insoluble substance. When soap scum isn’t cleaned, it can leave gray, white, or even orange streaks. It can also build up in your tile grout and corrode metal framework around your glass.

Custom Mirrors Can Inspire You to Reach Your Health Goals

Do you often procrastinate or make excuses when it comes to incorporating more exercise into your day? You could go for a walk, but the weather isn’t always conducive to a walk around the block, and if you suffer from seasonal allergies, being outside can trigger uncomfortable symptoms.

Of course, there’s the local gym, but maybe the idea of exercising in front of other people makes you head to the sofa with a bag of chips and a soda instead.

Why not try to transform an area of your home into your own private workout studio with custom mirrors? This strategy may provide the inspiration you need to get started. Find an activity you love, create your dream studio, and watch your motivation soar.

Approach to Designing a Custom Glass Shower Door

When shower stalls and tubs need enclosing, homeowners typically opt for glass enclosures. Glass enclosures are luxurious and easy to maintain. A main feature of glass enclosures is the door.

If you want a custom glass enclosure, look into designing a customized door. The first step is to decide what kind of door you need. A main driver of the decision is the type of door needed, be it a glass shower stall or a shower and tub combination. Below are some main steps for further planning the customized door.

Feather Friends or Foes? Birds Versus Your Windows

Glass collisions prove fatal for nearly one billion birds in the United States annually, according to the American Bird Conservancy. What can you do to keep the wildlife and your windows safe? Before your brand-new windows cause a bird calamity, take a look at what you need to know to reduce the risks.

Understand the Problem

Why do birds fly into windows? They don’t think they’re coming into your home for a meal or to nest. Instead, birds see the reflection of the sky, trees, and everything else outdoors and think the window is an extension of the environment.

What Our Clients Say

Hidden Gem

I had 2 windshields replaced on my previous car at a different glass company. I went back there and got an estimate for this windshield but thought I would get a second estimate from Central Glass. I am sure glad as it saved me over $140. This is now my glass company of choice.
