Are you redesigning your bathroom? Few building materials can withstand the environment of a typical bathroom. You need materials that can survive intense moisture and chemical cleaning products. You also need materials that are resistant to mould and bacterial growth. But this doesn’t mean that you have to spend a fortune on furnishings. One of the most affordable bathroom-safe materials is aluminium!
Aluminium is a tough yet lightweight material that can be used as furnishings and more in your bathroom. Why not get a glass and aluminium sliding door for your Singapore home? You can also use aluminium to reinforce your windows.
While aluminium is more resistant and affordable than other alternatives, they still require care to last long. Do you have aluminium fixtures in your bathroom? Here’s how to maintain them.
- Keep wheels and other moving parts lubricated. If you have an aluminium window in your Singapore bathroom, check its moving parts. Many sliding scenes and doors have wheels that allow them to move. Lubricate them with silicone-based lubricants to avoid rust and corrosion.
- Clean frames regularly using a gentle solution. Harsh chemicals can easily damage your aluminium frames. Stick to mild detergent, and clean gently with a soft-bristled brush or sponge. Use lukewarm water to create your soapy mix!
- Rinse the frames well. Any soapy residue can easily turn into scum that will get harder to scrub off. Clean out the soap suds thoroughly and dry the frames using a soft cloth. If your shower screen in your Singapore home has a removable frame, feel free to remove them to inspect the aluminium.
- Schedule your cleanings. Don’t just reserve the cleaning routine for when your aluminium frame looks dirty. They should be cleaned every 2-3 months at a minimum.
