It's Time For A Change: Why You Need New Shower Doors


If you're looking for ways to update your bathroom, it's time to take a closer look at your bathtub – particularly the shower doors. Installing new shower doors can go a long way towards updating your bathroom. One of the great things about shower doors is that they can change the look of your bathroom without the need for an entirely new bathtub. Here are just four of the reasons why it's time for new shower doors.

Moisture Has Corroded the Frame

If you're not sure that you need a new shower door, take a closer look at the frame on your old one. Years of constant exposure to moisture can wreak havoc on the frame. In fact, the moisture can cause your shower door frame to corrode. Unfortunately, once a shower door corrodes, it loses much of it's stability, which means it's more likely to fall apart on you – literally, if you're in the shower or bathroom when it falls apart. That's a serious accident just waiting to happen. If your current shower door is covered in corrosion, it's time for a new one.

Soap Scum Has Made It Unsanitary

When it comes to cleaning your bathroom, it's easy to forget about the shower door, specifically the frame. Unfortunately, without proper cleaning, the tracks can get coated with soap scum. Once there's enough soap scum built up on the tracks, the door will no longer open and close properly. Not only that, but the door won't be as sanitary as it should be. That's because germs and bacteria can thrive in the layers of soap scum. If your shower door tracks are coated in soap scum that just won't come clean anymore, you need a new shower door.

Hard Water Deposits Won't Come Off

If you have hard water in your home, your glass shower doors are going to pay the price. Each time you shower, your doors will collect new hard water deposits. If the years of exposure to hard water have taken your shower doors from crystal clear to fogged over and stained, new shower doors will give you a new outlook on life. Not only will you no longer need to look at hard water deposits, but your bathroom will look cleaner.

Shower Curtains Are a Nuisance

If your bathtub doesn't have a shower door enclosure and you're stuck using shower curtains, it's time to make a change. Shower curtains can be a real nuisance. First, they allow a lot of the water to escape to your bathroom floor. Second, they can get moldy after a while. If you don't have shower doors, it's time to have some installed in your bathroom.

Cleaning Glass More Effectively

After moving into a house with loads of windows, I knew that I would be spending a lot of time dealing with the problem. I wanted to make things right, so I started thinking about how to clean glass more effectively. I started focusing on keeping water from spraying on the windows, and then I worked on making sure that the glass stayed polished all of the time. I even hired a few of my kids to shine the windows periodically, which I felt really helped. This website is your new resource for all things glass, including how to keep them clean.
