If you have a pool in your house, then it is absoloutely needed to surround it with a glass pool fencing system.

There is nothing more unique than having a glass barrier fence shining in the sunlight and letting you to see your spectacular flower garden beyond the pool.
However, the glass fence can only give off such level of visual appeal if it is clean. Unfortunately, mildew can attack the surface, causing the glass appear dull, frosty, and dirty.
What is mildew? Well, mildew is in fact a big colony of molds and fungi. Mildew can grow on many materials including glass, clothing, wood, leather, or even concrete. These colonies typically live in wet, warm areas or places with bad moisture control.
Good thing to know that it is easy and cheap to remove the fungi and molds by following these suggestions:
1. Pour a cup or two white vinegar inside a spray bottle. Spray the vinegar on the glass surface, concentrating on the places with a great concentration of mildew. Allow the vinegar to sit for a few minutes so that it can soak through the stain.
2. Remove the stain with an old toothbrush; it should just come off after the vinegar thoroughly soaked it. After you have scrubbed the affected spot, wash the glass with lukewarm, clear water. Remove the excess water with a squeegee. Check if the mildew remains.
3. If the mildew remains, try this technique. Get some 3 percent hydrogen peroxide; you can purchase this chemical at a local pharmacy. Put some of the solution on a clean lint-free cloth. Wipe the cloth on the glass, again focusing on areas where there is still mildew. Hydrogen peroxide rapidly eliminates the fungi and molds, loosens their roots, and prevents their development.
4. For extremely stubborn mildew stains that refuse to come off even with the hydrogen peroxide procedure, try this. Blend 1/8 cup of chlorine bleach and a cup of water in a spray bottle. Shake to mix the solution completely. Then spray directly on the mildew stains on your glass balustrading Perth. Let the bleach set aside for several minutes or more. Be sure to wear safety gloves when applying chlorine due to the fact that this can irritate skin.
As a final step, scrub the area with an old toothbrush then rinse the residue with warm, clear water. Remove the extra water using a squeegee or a clean, lintless cloth. Now your glass fence is clean, sparkling, and clear of mildew.
