How to clean glass pool fences and balustrades

It’s extremely easy to maintain and clean glass fences without having to spend too much time, effort and money. Although in saying this, it should be noted that glass fences cannot be treated the same as say your glass windows. By this, we mean you can’t simply use general glass window cleaning substances to clean your pool fences, as they leave unwanted residue.

Too often are people fed generic advice, to use warm water and a sponge to clean your fences and balustrades. The problem with this is that although it may appear to get rid of all of the dirtiness, it isn’t sustainable.

At Pool Glass Fencing, we recommend cleaning every 2-3 months. Our recommended cleaning method is extremely simple, yet effective. If you abide by the following steps, you’re guaranteed to have a clean pool fence:

  1. Wash the fence with warm water and a small amount of soap (dishwashing liquid – not window cleaner) with a sponge or microfiber cloth
  2. Use the hose to wash chemicals off with normal water
  3. Absorb all of the water on the fence with a cloth
  4. Finally, and most importantly, use a protective coat such as Nanocoat Clear or Ezicleen to shield the fence or balustrade from stains, build-ups and etching

*Note – you can use this technique on both your glass pool fence and balustrade.
