Posted by on Mar 5, 2017

tlc-greenhouse-cleaning-service-header_0Have you wondered how to care for and maintain the beauty of your AGI custom-designed architectural glass greenhouse, skylight, awning or conservatory? Here are some tips to avoid damaging this specialized architectural glass, and to maintain its luster and beauty long after installation.

  • Avoid cleaning tinted and coated glass surfaces in direct sunlight as excessive heat interferes with the removal of dirt and cleaning solution.
  • Clean glass in a top-to-bottom direction.
  • Before cleaning, apply a clean water and mild soap solution to loosen dirt and debris using a soft, grit-free cloth.
  • To clean, use a mild, non-abrasive commercial window cleaning solution.
  • Use a squeegee to remove all of the cleaning solution.
  • DO NOT use razor blades, scrapers of any size or type, abrasive cleaning solutions, or abrasive cleaning materials on tempered or coated glass — they will scratch and damage the glass.
  • DO NOT allow dirt and residue to remain on glass for an extended period of time.
  • DO NOT begin cleaning without rinsing excessive dirt and debris.
