floor to ceiling glass shower door
When the door is closed some debris is left and is stuck on the space between track and door. A buildup of debris could cause the performance of the door to deteriorate. In order to prevent this problem you should make sure that your sliding shower door is closed at all times. If possible you should only open or close the doors when you are entering or leaving the shower area. If you have a tub enclosed with the shower installing a sliding door may complicate your use of the tub. Unlike shower curtains a sliding shower door cannot be adjusted to provide more space on the perimeter of the area.
If the shower track has rust built upon it already try to clean it off with steel wool or a small wire brush. If the rust has gone too far and the track is irreparable it may be wise to source a reputable shower door company as a last resort. If you have a hinged door and you are experiencing high pitched squeaking as it open and closes or rust then you need to address this. This simplest way is to take the door off and either clean or treat the hinge with the correct brushes and creams. Another Idea which may be a worthwhile investment as well as saving time would be to quickly replace the hinges and hang the door back up.
