Glass pool fences are becoming increasingly popular throughout the world. However, it’s important to make sure that you look after your glass pool fencing properly, otherwise it simply won’t look as good as it could.
One of the best ways to make sure that your pool fencing continues to look great for years into the future is to clean it every few weeks or so. Regular cleaning will keep your pool fence looking great, and will prevent it from wearing excessively and becoming run down. However, a lot of people don’t know exactly how often they should clean their pool fences.
With this in mind, we’ve put together a short guide to help people living in different climates decide when to clean their glass pool fence. We’ve also included a short section on how to clean your pool fence.
How Often Should I Clean My Pool Fence?
Ultimately, how regularly you should clean your glass pool fence will depend on where you live and what sort of climate your fence is exposed to. Below we’ve broken down cleaning timelines into three main climate/condition groups:
Mild Climate/Conditions – Mild conditions are usually experienced by people who live a significant distance from the coast, from heavy urban activity and from industrial pollution sources. Most people with mild conditions live in rural or remote areas in the south of the state. If you live in a mild climate, you’re in luck! You only need to clean your pool fence two or three times a year to keep it looking great!
Moderate Climate/Conditions – Moderate conditions are usually experienced by people living in Australia’s southern cities, but away from industrial pollution sources and the coast. If you live in a moderate climate you should try and clean your glass pool fence at least once every three months.
Tropical/Severe Climate/Conditions – If you live in a tropical or severe climate, you will need to clean your fence very regularly to keep it shiny and clean. In harsh conditions near the coast or heavy industrial activity, you should try and clean at least once a month – once every two weeks if you have the time. Failing to do so could result in salt build up on your fence’s glass and significant corrosion of the metal components of your fence.
How Should I Clean My Glass Pool Fence?
When done regularly, cleaning glass pool fences is as simple as wiping them over with warm, soapy water. Make sure that you dry the glass panels after they’ve been washed to prevent streaks and drip marks. Never use harsh chemicals, abrasives or blades to clean your glass fence, as they could damage it.
Cleaning glass pool fences is actually very easy when you do it regularly. Regular cleaning – at least as frequently as outlined above – will result in a well maintained fence that will stay shiny and clean for years to come.
