Condensation happens when warm, humid air meets a cold surface. As a glass room’s natural design helps to prevent this from happening, the biggest cause of condensation is from adjoining rooms. Keeping doors to adjoining rooms closed, while ensuring any affected areas are not blocked by furniture, curtains or other obstructions, will help to minimise condensation. In winter, opening up the area for short 5-10 minute periods will also help to replace the humid air with fresh, dry outside air.
Moving parts should be checked and cleaned at regular intervals. No lubricating with silicone oil is necessary. In general,it is best to avoid using aggressive cleaning agents, acids, abrasives, sharp implements, steel wool or solvent-based cleaners when cleaning your glass room.
Cleaning the Glass Panels
It is best to use a neutral cleaning agent with lots of clean water to avoid scratching the glass.
Cleaning Aluminium Parts
In non-saltwater areas, the aluminium parts should be cleaned at least once a year using clean water and a few drops of a pH-neutral or very slightly alkaline detergent.
Cleaning the Fabrics
In most cases, any loose dirt can be removed with a soft-bristled brush or a vacuum cleaner. Any light stains should be removed with a soft, moist cloth using a 5-10% solution of mild detergent and lukewarm water (max 40°C). Once finished, rinse thoroughly with fresh water.
By following these steps and keeping up some basic maintenance, the life and lustre of your glass room will be prolonged, allowing you to enjoy this space for many years. Don’t forget glass rooms and verandas also come with a 10-year warranty, offering you additional peace of mind and protection.
