Steps need to be taken to ensure you are always able to utilize your mirror, especially if it is custom. Here are a few basic maintenance tips to ensure your mirror lasts for as long as possible.
Do Not Use Abrasive Materials
You need to pay careful attention to the cleaning products you use on your mirrors. You need to be 100 percent positive that it is not going to wear down the glass. Additionally, you need to use a rag that is clean to dry off your mirror. Under no circumstances should you use a scraper or knife on a mirror.
Do Limit Moisture Exposure
If high levels of moisture are allowed to stay on a mirror, then that water could seep into the structure. Over time, this results in significant damage. After your mirrors get wet, run a dry, soft cloth over them.
Do Not Spray Cleaner Directly on Mirror
Far too many people spray a substance directly on a mirror and then wipe a cloth over it. That is not the correct way to clean. Instead, you want to spray the cleaner onto the cloth, and then run that over the mirror.
