Cleaning Tips for Your Storefront Windows

Your storefront window may be the first impression you make on potential customers who pass by your business, particularly if you have a beautiful display or colorful signage. One of the biggest mistakes your business can make with storefront windows is failing to keep storefront displays clean. Foggy or dirty windows are noticeable. They’re also easily fixed. Ryan’s all-glass takes a look at some of the best cleaning tips for your storefront display to ensure your business makes a great first impression. 

Use the Right Equipment

The most common mistake made when cleaning windows, and the easiest one to avoid, is using the wrong equipment. Cleaning windows with the wrong rag or cleaning solvent can leave streaks and make your storefront windows harder to clean in the future. It’s tricky to find the right tools to clean your storefront display because of how big the surface of the glass is. A strip washer coupled with the right solvent offers a great way to clean the window. After cleaning, the best way to dry your windows is with a squeegee. 

Dry Correctly

You must dry your windows properly when you clean them, especially the side that is facing the street. If you don’t, debris and particles can accumulate, and streaks may remain once the window dries. A squeegee is the best way to dry your windows because it covers a lot of surface area and it’s easy to use. Once you finish with the squeegee, get rid of any additional liquid left behind. A microfiber cloth is one option, but take care to wipe the glass consistently and avoid wiping areas that are already dry. In fact, dabbing your window after squeegeeing is more effective because it simply absorbs any leftover water and does not leave behind streaks. 

Don’t Neglect the Inside 

Another easy mistake to make when cleaning storefront windows is to neglect the inside of the window. Naturally, the street-facing side of the window accumulates more debris and grime, simply because it’s outdoors. However, that doesn’t mean dust and grime don’t collect on the inside of the pane. Neglecting to clean the inside of the window can negate the work you do on the outside of the display.

Cleaning Tips for Frameless Shower Enclosures

If you are looking to upgrade your shower enclosure or install a brand-new shower, Ryan’s all-glass can help. We offer a variety of different enclosures, from semi-frameless to sliding shower doors. We also provide completely frameless shower enclosures. Frameless designs offer a few cleaning challenges not found in other types of enclosures. Because they are made exclusively from glass, frameless shower doors require more attention to keep them clean. In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass will take a look at some cleaning tips for frameless shower enclosures.

Daily Cleanings

Regular, daily cleanings are the key to keeping frameless shower enclosures clear. Luckily, cleaning frameless shower doors isn’t a huge pain. It is easy to rinse the inside of the glass shower doors each time you use the shower to keep the shower doors clean. You can also buy daily shower sprays to apply in an easy step to protect your shower doors.

Use a Squeegee

Using a squeegee to clean your shower doors is a great way to make sure you are not leaving particles or soap within your shower enclosure. Squeegees don’t absorb the water, soap spots, or particles. They simply move them. When you combine a squeegee with a quick rinse with your showerhead, you can easily wash your shower every day. Run a squeegee over the interior shower door and glass at the end of every shower; it only takes a few seconds each time. However, a quick once-over can prevent soap scum and water stains from building up on your glass.

Utilize the Right Glass Cleaners

Along with simple, daily shower enclosure cleaning routines, utilizing glass cleaner is the best long-term solution. Ryan’s all-glass highly recommends the glass cleaner we provide to keep your glass shiny and looking brand new. Regardless of what type of glass cleaner you use, you should apply a glass cleaner at least once every two weeks. You don’t need to clean your glass with shower cleaner every day, but using it regularly keeps your shower looking brand new and prevents the need for deep cleans.

Tips for Maintaining Storefront Windows

Storefront window

For businesses with foot traffic, there are few things more important than storefront windows. As the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression, and your storefront display is the best first impression you will get with customers. For that reason, it is crucial that your displays are the best that they can be. In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass will give some tips for maintaining your storefront windows.

Clean, Clean, Clean

Nothing is less appealing to potential customers than smudgy, dirty storefront windows. Failing to clean your windows is not only unprofessional, but it doesn’t present your products well. If you want to make a good impression, you will need to clean your windows regularly. Cleaning your storefront display goes beyond just the windows, frames and display features should also be free of dust and grime.

Organize Your Storefront Windows

The effectiveness of your storefront display will come down to your organization. It’s important to feature the products that customers want and organize the display in such a way that they see what they are looking for. Secure and organized storefront displays will prevent your items from falling and prevent accidental damage to your storefront windows.

Don’t Neglect Damage

Damage to storefront windows is a big deal. While a shattered window would require emergency glass repair, it is easy to neglect small nicks and cracks. That, however, is a big mistake. When you see damage to your storefront window, whether that be a crack or a scratch, you will need to take care of it before it becomes a bigger problem. A window with a small crack is much more likely to shatter, so don’t neglect what might seem to be minor damage.

Maintenance Tips for Cabinet Glass Features

Kitchen cabinets

If you have glass cabinets, keeping them clean and maintaining them can be more difficult than traditional wood features. The most important maintenance tip for cabinet glass is a simple one: don’t break the glass. However, there is more that goes into the process, especially when it comes to keeping your cabinets looking great. In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass will take a look at a few maintenance tips for cabinet glass features.

Don’t Procrastinate

People don’t typically think of staining when it comes to cabinet glass, but glass stains are very real. With most glass cabinets being in the kitchen, it is very possible for your cabinet glass to become stained. The biggest mistake you can make with glass stains is to procrastinate when removing them. Stains can set in quickly and become more difficult to remove if you don’t take care of them quickly. If you see splatter or steam on your glass that could potentially stain, clean it immediately to prevent further damage.

Close Cabinets With Care

When you first get your new cabinets you will probably take great care of them, but as the weeks go by you might become less careful. When they’re brand new, you’ll be more likely to clean them regularly and be gentler with them. To prevent broken glass or damage to hinges and frames, you will want to close your cabinets carefully and avoid slamming them. Choosing quality cabinet door handles will help.

Use the Right Cabinet Glass Cleaners

If you want to keep your cabinet glass looking like new for months and years to come, you will need to clean it regularly. However, the careless cleaning it isn’t enough; you have to clean your glass the right way. Cheap, low-quality glass cleaners will lead to smudgy and foggy glass. Find the right glass cleaner to keep your glass looking brand new. Additionally, use the right materials to clean the glass. A cheap washcloth can smudge up your glass and even scratch it. Use soft cotton washcloths or even invest in high-quality microfiber cloth.
