Shower glass is exposed to hard water, mold, soap scum, and body oils which makes it more likely to develop stains compared to other types of glass. Fortunately, there’s a solution, one that will protect shower glass while also cutting down on regular upkeep.
Now, homeowners can protect their shower glass with the help of IDEAL Shine Surface Protection, a type of hydrophobic coating that can be used on both shower glass and glazed surfaces.
IDEAL Shine Surface Protection is a type of premier glass coating that’s applied to shower glass by trained professionals. This treatment is designed to protect glass by preventing corrosion, staining, and other forms of damage. IDEAL Shine Surface Protection is one of the leading hydrophobic coatings on the market, with a reputation for providing a higher level of protection that allows shower glass to remain in pristine condition, year after year.
What is a Hydrophobic Coating?
Finding an effective way to keep shower glass clean and protected is a big deal. Unfortunately, shower glass is a magnet for soap scum, mildew, mineral deposits, and mold. If you’re searching for a way to keep your shower glass clean and looking new, a hydrophobic coating is the perfect solution. Hydrophobic coating is made out of silica gel and works to repel water by filling in the small pores found in glass. The coating product repels both water and oils and only needs to be reapplied every three to fifteen years, depending on the quality of the coating and how it’s applied.
Hydrophobic coating can provide optimal protection, working as an effective water repellant that also can protect shower glass from water stains, while offering protection against scratches, stains, and other forms of damage. The glass coating is commonly applied to glass shower doors and glass shower enclosures but can be applied to any type of non-porous hard surface, including countertops, mirrors, sinks, and toilets.
The Advantages of a Hydrophobic Shower Coating
This type of glass shower coating can protect the surface from environmental pollutants, hard water stains, and weathering that occurs from general wear and tear.
Stains and repeat cleaning can cause significant damage to shower glass over time. By applying a hydrophobic protective coating, the glass is now stain, scratch, and water-resistant, and also works as a barrier against dirt and grime.
This coating also protects against:
- Environmental pollutants
- Mineral buildup and deposits
- Hard water
With the application of hydrophobic coating, you’ll benefit from:
- Hard water etching prevention
- Scratch and stain resistance
- A reduction in bacteria, mildew, and mold
- Less frequent cleaning
How Long Does a Shower Door Coating Last?
There are many DIY hydrophobic coating kits available on the market. These kits allow homeowners to apply the coating themselves, however, these kits tend to wear off much faster than a professionally applied, high-quality coating, with the need to reapply the coating every one to two years. When applied by professionals, this coating can last significantly longer.
Protect Your Investment Long-Term
If you’ve purchased a custom frameless glass shower door, the hydrophobic coating provides an effective way to protect this important investment year after year. When applied by professionals, the coating will work to not only cut down on routine cleaning but can prevent serious permanent damage that could otherwise force you to replace your shower door over a period of a few years. With IDEAL Shine Surface Protection, you’ll get the most out of your new custom shower door, saving both time and money.
