How To Keep Commercial Glass in Good Condition

Keeping glass windows clean and damage-free can boost your business's aesthetic appeal and functionality. Here are some of tips from Allied Glass & Mirror for keeping commercial glass in good condition:

1. Clean Regularly

Cleaning your glass regularly helps remove stains, dust, dirt, and smudges that can build up over time. Choose a non-abrasive commercial glass cleaner formulated for glass surfaces. Allied Glass offers foam glass cleanser for purchase to keep windows looking great. Foam cleaners reduce the hassle of puddles and drips in contrast to spray cleaners, and will effectively penetrate any type of grime.

A mixture of warm water and mild soap can also help you remove dirt and dust buildup. Use microfiber cloths when cleaning glass, as they are gentle and highly absorbent. For stubborn spots or smudges, use a soft, non-abrasive scrubbing pad.

After washing, rinse the glass thoroughly with clean water to remove all soap residue, and use a squeegee to eliminate excess water. Schedule regular glass cleanings and inspections with glass professionals to help keep your windows in good condition.

2. Check for Minor Damages

When glass is neglected, minor damages like cracks, scratches, or chips can worsen over time and affect the glass's structural integrity. Double-glazed or insulated glass units can develop condensation or discoloration over time, indicating a seal failure that needs fixing. If windows or doors are difficult to open or close, this may indicate issues with the hinges, tracks, or glass panels.

Allied Glass & Mirroroffers professional glass repairs to boost commercial glass's functionality, safety, and durability. Our glass repair technicians start by assessing the size, depth, and location of the crack or chip in your glass. Resealing and weatherproofing the glass can prevent future damage and drafts. After repair, the technician checks for any signs of distortion or unevenness in the glass that may negatively affect its aesthetic appeal.

3. Schedule Glass Replacement for Major Damages

If your commercial windows or doors have severe damage, like shattered or extensively cracked panels, schedule a replacement immediately. At Allied Glass & Mirror, we offer commercial glass replacementservices tailored to fit unique space requirements or dimensions. You can choose from laminated, spandrel, fire-rated, patterned, bullet-resistant, and sound-controlled glass options. Sound-controlled glass dampens sound vibrations, making it ideal for businesses located in busy areas.

Laminated and fire-rated glass boosts safety and security in commercial buildings. To improve your commercial property's curb appeal, you can choose patterned glass, which comes in dew, rain, frosted, and geometric pattern-etched designs. Opaque spandrel glass can hide a property's structural elements and offer greater visual appeal. For unique or decorative glass needs, such as storefront displays, signage, or architectural features, we offer custom glass replacement solutions.
