Keep your glass in top condition!

The most beautiful glass is glass you don't see. Crisp and crystal clear. Seems simple, doesn't it?

Nevertheless, there are some rules of thumb for maintaining your glass windows that you should definitely keep in mind. Keep reading to learn all about it!


  • Glass surfaces, and especially your exterior windows, are exposed to natural pollution caused by the elements. Regular cleaning helps prevent the caking of dirt and supports the longevity of your glass.
  • Do not place your ladder against the glass while cleaning
  • Keep the cleaning material free from silicone and grease;
  • Clean the glass regularly with plenty of clean water and glass cleaning agent if possible. A dash of cleaning vinegar or methylated spirit will also do the trick!
  • If the glass is very dirty, it is best to change your water often.
  • Use a soft sponge, a chamois pad and a clean cotton cloth or a microfibre cloth.
  • If you prefer a window squeegee, opt for a silicone-free rubber version.
  • Concrete or cement splashes, plaster and mortar should be washed off with ample clean water immediately and carefully.
  • Stubborn contaminants such as paint or tar splashes and glue residue can be removed with benzene or acetone.
  • Contact between the glass and maintenance products for aluminium, PVC or wood can cause damage to the glass.
  • For cement haze or traces of silicone, it is best to use the normal non-abrasive cleaning agents for ceramic hobs.
  • Always be careful with cleaning agents near sealing profiles or silicone joints.


  • Do not use sharp objects, such as an ice scraper, box cutter or kitchen knife.
  • Do not use aggressive abrasives.
  • Limescale remover and highly alkaline soapsuds are out of the question.
  • Do not use detergents that are not specifically intended for glass, such as dishwashing products or floor cleaners.
  • Avoid using abrasive tools, such as scouring sponges, coarse steel wool, etc.
  • Lukewarm water is fine, but never use boiling water. This could crack your beautiful glass.
  • Do not use portable polishers. They will strip the glass of a considerable part of its mass and may cause optical distortions.

The best advice we can give you is to maintain your glass often. This will prevent dirt and grease from causing any damage.
