How To Keep Your Glass Railings Clean

How to Do it Yourself

To cut through grease from outdoor cooking, bird droppings, and other debris, dilute 3 to 4 squirts of liquid dish soap in 1 quart of warm water and sponge it onto your exterior glass railing or glass blocks. Wash the railing thoroughly before rinsing it with a hose or gently splashing it with small buckets of warm water. Allow the railing to dry naturally before wiping away any streaks with a clean, lint-free cloth. For decades, white vinegar has been used to clean glass. For dust and dirt that has been sitting for a while, use it undiluted, or dilute it with 2 cups of warm water for a milder solution. Rinse the railing with warm water after applying the vinegar with a nonabrasive plastic scrubber. Allow the railing to dry naturally.

Support Brackets and Columns

Glass is more resistant and sturdy than wood or metal. It does not rust or corrode like wood or iron. Your glass railings, on the other hand, are almost certainly fixed to a wooden deck or surface, and their brackets are almost certainly corrodible.


You can check the brackets and supports of your glass railings once a month to make sure they are not damaged. Check for loosened brackets and supports, as well as rotting or termite-infested wooden surfaces. While the glass railings themselves are likely to be secure, the surfaces to which they are attached, as well as the brackets that hold them in place, may be harmed.


Cleaning the Decks And Floor


Your balcony or deck’s floor must also be kept clean. Above a protective waterproof layer called a membrane, there might be tiles or a layer. It could be the ground itself, or it could be hidden. Depending on the form of deck or balcony, different membrane materials are used. Its aim is to prevent water damage to the underlying structure. The membrane can develop holes or cracks if it is not properly maintained and inspected. Furniture, shoes, and barbecues may all cause problems. Water can seep in and cause structural damage to the deck or balcony.


The membrane can shift away from the wall as new buildings settle, allowing water to enter. During the first few years after construction, keep an eye out for issues.
