Stained glass windows enhance the beauty and appearance of any space. But it is also true that over a certain period of time the windows become dirty and they need to be cleaned well to look as fresh as the new ones.

It has been observed that the cleaning of stained glass windows is not that easy. Even one is required to have proper idea of right cleaning methods as doing wrongly can harm the windows more. An unknowing person may inadvertently erase colored shades and lines from the glass in Vancouver.

Let’s discuss more on the cleaning and related aspects in detail through this article.

Dusted lightly

Stained glass objects collect dirt, smoke from candles and dust over a period of time. Even it is affected badly by the powdering glazing compound and the oxidation powder from the lead that actually holds each piece of glass. And professional conservators have recommended cleaning the windows by dusting lightly to remove any surface accumulation of dust or dirt. If outside parts of the windows are not covered with any kind of covering it will be cleaned by the weather but it becomes more complicated to clean the inner parts.

Washing

As far as washing is concerned, individuals are required to clean the inner part of the windows with a clean, soft cloth and distilled water. As distilled water does not contains any kind of impurities, so it will be a nice option than tap water for the washing purpose. One should dip the cloth into the distilled water followed by wringing out all excess water and then clean the interior surface of windows.

If any part of the glass does not have painted areas then only one should scrub that part hardly for cleaning otherwise, the painted areas should be cleaned gently to not affect the painted areas.

Using toothbrush

Of course, the windows are required to be cleaned in a gentle way but in case of dirt in the textured part, one can use a toothbrush with soft bristle for the cleaning. But the brush should be applied only on non-painted areas and one should also consider the limit of moisture.

Stained glass in Vancouver has so many uses including designing windows, doors and also for the showpieces. Whatever the stained object one have in homes, they should be cleaned with proper attention and care so as to maintain their naturalness and beauty.
