One of the more popular installations we do is our glass tabletops. Glass tabletops are perfect for the modern office conference room, or in a home or apartment. However, like any material, glass has certain requirements for routine maintenance. Here is our guide on how to take care of a glass table.
Although the glass we use in our glass tables is designed to be durable; glass can scratch, scuff, and crack. It is important to take care of your glass table whenever you move it. If you plan to move the table to a new location it is recommended to cover it with proper insulation and with foam padding to prevent impact damage. During daily use; make sure that the table has ample space from other pieces of furniture so that it cannot easily be damaged by swinging doors. You should also avoid putting large or heavy items on the table that could cause damage.
A key to maintaining the look of your glass table is to regularly clean it. Mix a mild detergent with warm water to clean the glass surface. There are a variety of great glass surface cleaners that you can buy at a local cleaning products store. It is recommended that you clean the surface of the glass every time you use the table to keep the glass looking new. This is especially true if the table is used for dining. It is also recommended that you regularly dust the surface of the glass with a dry cotton cloth to remove any small debris that is attached to the surface.
If a spill isn’t cleaned up in a timely manner, it is likely that it will form grime and residue on the surface of the glass. To remove this grime it is recommended that you mix baking soda with vinegar and use a scrubbing sponge to remove the grime. Be careful when using any abrasive equipment like brushes or sponges. Although the abrasive surface may help remove the grime, it can also cause scratches on the surface of the glass.
