General Cardinal Shower Enclosure Care and Maintenance Guidelines

MAINTAINING YOUR TUB OR SHOWER ENCLOSURE

  • For the best results, your enclosure should be cleaned with a squeegee or clean dry cloth after exposure to water.
  • Make sure your shower is properly ventilated, especially true for steamer units to release the humidity from the enclosure.
  • Keep the surface clean of any kind of material attachments or contaminants, such as dust, particles, dirty liquid, finger prints or stains.

ABRASIVE CLEANER WARNING
Do not use abrasive or acid-based cleaners when cleaning your Cardinal Shower Enclosure. There are some powerful cleaners on the market today. Abrasive or acid-based cleaners can scar the metal or glass of your Cardinal Shower Enclosure. It probably wouldn't happen with a single application, but it's best to use appropriate types of cleaners all the time.


Skyline Enclosures Care and Maintenance

To keep the stainless steel of your Skyline enclosure looking great for years to come, we recommend the following procedures:

  • Wipe any water off the Skyline metal with a clean dry cloth after each shower.
  • Make sure your shower is properly ventilated, especially true for steamer units to release the humidity from the enclosure.
  • Keep the surface clean of any kind of material attachments or contaminants, such as dust, particles, dirty liquid, finger prints or stains.
  • Use soft clean cloth, bristle brush or sponge and a neutral/mild cleaning liquid or warm soft water to clean the surface for attachments that are easy to clean.
  • Clean rust spots caused by attachments on the surface using grinding detergent or detergent specially for cleaning stainless steel.
  • Be careful not to scratch the surface during cleaning. Do not use cleaning mixture containing bleaching ingredients/chlorine.
  • Do not use steel wool or an abrasive tool.
  • Always rinse the surface well with soft clean warm water after cleaning using detergent and wipe dry.

Cardinal 10 Surface Protection Care Instructions

  • After each use a simple swipe of a squeegee will help maintain that brand new look. The glass needs to be cleaned every few weeks using a damp microfiber cloth and a mild detergent or soap to remove soap scum and grime from the glass.
  • If you prefer, a general glass cleaner and a cloth are also suitable.
  • The need to use harsh cleansers or toxic chemicals is no longer necessary to maintain the pristine appearance of your glass.
  • When cleaning your treated glass be careful not to use any rough, gritty, highly acidic or abrasive cleaners that may remove the surface of the glass and damage the coating, therefore voiding the warranty.
  • For areas with hard water, due to a higher concentrate of mineral deposits such as lime and calcium, a build up may occur on the protective coating and not be easily removed with a mild detergent.
  • A solution of white vinegar and water (1 part vinegar to 5 parts water), will need to be used occasionally to dissolve these deposits.
