Does Your Stained Glass Need Cleaning?
Now is the time of the DIY revolution. These days it seems like almost anything can be done at home if you have a little bit of time, a small budget and Google to guide you. Stained glass cleaning is no different. There are A TON of articles out there about how to clean your stained glass yourself, some good and some not so much. Whether or not you should clean your own stained glass really comes down to what exactly needs to be done and whether or not doing it yourself is good for your health and the health of your stained glass. Read below to find out when to clean your stained glass yourself and when to hire a professional.
When And How To Clean Stained Glass Yourself
Stained glass is a fairly durable material but one should always exercise caution when touching it or cleaning it in any fashion. If all your stained glass needs is some dust removed, by all means, use a duster and lightly sweep away cobwebs and other dust. If it looks as though your stained glass needs a bit more care, you can use standard dish soap and water to get rid of light grime. Make sure you are in a secure position so you don’t fall into the glass and gently rub each pane of glass from the inside out with an up and out motion. BE CAREFUL and never scrub the glass. Once it is clean you probably want to go back through with a wet soapless clothe to “rinse” any soap residue off the glass.
When Not To Clean Your Stained Glass Yourself
As we mentioned stained glass can hold up pretty well but caution is key to a long stained glass life. The best idea for stained glass cleaning is really to just call a professional like Fort Worth Stained Glass but you absolutely need to if:
-Your stained glass is more than 50 years old
-Your stained glass shows any signs of sagging, cracks, gaps or other disrepair
-Your stained glass does not come clean with soap and water. *Remember, the chemicals it takes to get rid of extremely tarnished stained glass can be very harmful to you or your family
-Your stained glass is up high or in a hard to reach area
-Your stained glass is visibly very tarnished–soap and water simply won’t work on layers of caked on grime
If you are ready to get your stained glass looking good but don’t want to deal with the intricacies of cleaning it yourself, remember, there are experts to do it for you and a simple cleaning is much less expensive than an extensive repair should you damage your stained glass doing it yourself.
