A growing trend within home design is skylight installation because they can enhance the natural beauty of a space easily. However, if you want your skylight to continue to bring natural light into your home, you need to care for it well. You need to make sure that the elements do not crack or damage your structure. Luckily, there are a few simple tips to caring for your skylight.
One of the major components of caring for a skylight involves cleaning the glass. When cleaning your glass, make sure you are cleaning the exterior as well as the interior. You want to use mild soap to clean the surface, especially if it is comprised of plastic. Abrasive cleaning products, such as bleach, can damage skylight surfaces. When clean the glass with mild soap and water, you want to use a sponge or soft cloth to avoid making scratches.
When caring for your skylight, you want to inspect the glass and seal for any leaks. Make sure to inspect for the inside and outside so that you can a proper look at the structure. If there are any uneven edges where the glass meets the seal, you most likely have a leak, and you need to repair it immediately. If there are any scratches on your plastic skylight, you can smooth them out with automobile wax or polish.
