The 2 Ways to Sanitize Glass Railings During COVID-19

The Best Ways to Sanitize Glass Railings During COVID-19

COVID-19 may appear to be fading away, but that depends on our continuous adherence to safety regulations. Furthermore, there are potential varieties on the horizon that could reignite the epidemic. Let’s not become complacent when it comes to virus protection. Alumiguard MFG’s railing experts want to remind you that properly sanitizing glass railing is an essential element of combatting the virus.

So, here are three different ways to sterilize glass railings so that any COVID-19 that has gotten onto them is killed.

70% Alcohol Cleaner

While most people are aware that alcohol “kills germs,” many are unaware that “germs” and viruses aren’t always as identical as you might expect. While viruses are technically considered “germs,” the majority of germs that people are familiar with are actually bacteria.

Because a virus is a unique type of germ, it does not always die when it comes into contact with alcohol.

In the case of COVID-19, an alcohol-based cleaning must contain at least 70% alcohol to be effective. These days, you can get this type of alcohol in almost every market.

When sanitizing glass railings, make sure to pay equal attention to any metal bars that are linked to them. Adults focus their grasp on the bar provided for stability, but children may put their hands all over the glass.

Soap and Water

Alcoholic cleaners are popular because they are perceived to be “more effective.” However, just because alcohol is advertised as a germ-killer doesn’t mean it’s the most effective technique to eliminate COVID-19. Its potent odor may give the impression of its power, however, the easiest approach to kill this virus is with soap and water.

The good news is that any soap can be used. Wash your hands regularly  Many people believe that antibacterial soap is required.

However, as previously stated, a virus is not the same as a bacteria. The two germ types are diametrically opposed. As a result, antibacterial soap is no better than ordinary soap. 

Let’s have a look at why COVID-19 is killed by soap.

A virus, in this case, COVID-19, has a fatty covering around it. This shields it in the same manner that our skin shields us. Any type of soap’s molecules damage that fatty layer, depriving the virus of its protective coating. So eventually, it is utterly unusable.

As a result, the safest approach to cleaning and disinfecting glass railings is with a soapy washcloth. There’s no need to stress about percentages or if you’ve sprayed enough alcohol on the surface. All you need is an old rag and some soap and water to get the job done.

Buying Glass Railings

Because they are non-porous and largely flat, glass panels are among the easiest to clean. That implies there will be fewer creases and crevices in which viruses can hide from your cleaning efforts. If your business’s railings are in need of an upgrade, try replacing them with a glass railing system. 

How to Clean and Maintain Your Glass Railings

Glass railings are easier and safer to clean than railings made of metal or aluminum railing, which need regular maintenance. However, maintaining the appearance of these lovely additions to your home will take some care. You will not have to clean the glass railings on a daily basis, but it is a good idea to do so once in a while to keep them looking nice.  

Stains: What They Are and How to Get Rid of Them

The best method for cleaning your glass railings is dependent on the type of material they are made from. If they are made of tempered glass the best way to remove a stain is by using a soft, clean cloth with a detergent solution.

If the stain is greasy, the cloth should be soaked in a solution of hot water and detergent and then wrung out. Don’t forget to use a high-quality soap or detergent in order to get the best results in cleaning frameless glass railings.


Grime and liquid stains are more difficult to remove than dirt and dust. Cooking oil, food grease, or any liquid near your railing can cause this.

Using a moist cloth, wipe away the filth. Hard water should be avoided since its minerals can damage the glass surface. To keep the shine on the railing, use distilled or filtered water instead. To cut through the grease, use an ammonia-based glass cleaner or a 3:1 mixture of liquid dish soap and warm water.

A Few Additional Tips

Add Lemon Juice to the Cleaning Solution

Lemon juice added to your cleaning solution can make your glass railing gleam. Lemon’s acidic characteristics make it ideal for removing difficult glass stains. It also works as a deodorizer and has a pleasant scent.

Do Not Scrub

To dislodge stubborn filth, grime, or bird droppings, soak them in undiluted white vinegar before rinsing. Scrubbing will scratch the glass because of the hardened debris.

Glass railings are easier to clean than deck railings. For cleaning, all you need is water, dish soap, and a lint-free cloth, as well as a monthly inspection. Your glass railings will survive for decades with little effort.
