If you have glass showcases in your store then you probably understand how important they are. Many people will tell you that these showcases are what helps your business thrive, and they’d be right. However, their effectiveness is also based on how well you are able to care for them and to ensure they look like brand new all the time. You may be surprised to learn this but not everybody knows how to care for them in the right way.
Cleaning, How Often It Needs To Be Done
It is often up for debate as to how often the glass displays should be cleaned. The reasoning behind this is simple, no matter how beautiful your products are they will not look as attractive if they are behind dirty glass cases. There is nothing that would turn your customers away faster than when looking at dirty glass.
If you don’t want your business to suffer then you will need to ensure that you wash your glass cases often. How often you have to do it depends on how dusty your area is, or how quick it gets dirty. The faster it gets dirty then the more frequent you need to wash your glass. The good thing about cleaning glass is that it often does not require too many steps and time to get it from dirty to clean again!
You Don’t Need A Full Arsenal Of Cleaning Tools
Many people often overthink the process of cleaning their glass pedestal showcase. The honest truth is that you don’t really need all that expensive industrial chemicals that might actually do more harm than good. All you really need is some general soap and plain water to start your washing process.
If all you have to deal with are smudges from oily fingers and the occasional dust, then you really have nothing to worry about. All you have to get is a micro-fiber cloth that will not only help to wash away the oily stains but it will also help to capture dust and other small material. Gently wipe the glass clean and repeat the process until you have the entire case cleaned! It really is that simple!
So What Else?
You need to exercise extreme care when you are placing or taking out your products from the glass displays. Glass is very easy to get damaged and chipped if you’re not careful enough. As you know, you can’t just wipe a crack away so you will have to be very careful when you place items back into the showcase. The one solution to this is to place a piece of cloth between your products and the glass itself. This will help to protect it.
